The Strathmore

Occupying an unlikely spot beside the fire station on Maryhill Road, this attractively refurbed pub is the sort of local everyone wants.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Staff seem genuinely happy to work at the Strathmore, which is always a good sign, and the cosy modern interior, complete with wood-burning stove, creates the perfect venue for relaxed dining or leisurely drinking. The restaurant, in the new conservatory/extension at the back, offers mains such as the Strathy burger – try it with extra chorizo – or the fragrant tiger prawn Goan-style curry. They also do a great pizza, as well as Sunday roast and weekend brunch. School kids, meanwhile, love their skinny fries and hot chocolates on a chilly day. In the pub section, there’s a smallish but carefully selected range of beers and wines, and cocktails such as the dangerously moreish Gin Gin Mule. Although there’s been a pub on this site since 1877, this version is a newcomer, but it doesn’t feel like it, and one hopes it’ll be here for years to come.
