Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

In the 18th century, Glasgow merchants and bankers would flock to their local lunch spot of choice – a riverside bun house that specialised in roast duck. Diners had such enthusiasm for the ritual that they dubbed themselves the Partick Duck Club. Flash forward to today and a similar duck club fever has gripped the locals with the area’s newest brunch specialist enjoying serious popularity since opening in 2017. Set up by a couple of seasoned Glasgow restaurateurs, and with Cafezique’s former head chef Stuart Percival in the kitchen, this place is good at pretty much everything but great when it comes to brunch. Their breakfast menu runs all day and is recognisable but by no means average. Eggs, toast and avocado are here but spiked with an international flavour – spicy shakshuka with green harissa is a shot of life. Non-breakfast mains include the light and textured battered halloumi burger which pulls apart delicately as though it were no relation to the familiar salty chunk of cheese. And, of course, duck in its many forms is particularly accomplished – the crispy duck leg from the main menu represents the best of a very good bunch.
