Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

High-end community dining at its best, this modern restaurant on an attractive enclave in Bearsden combines excellent quality local and seasonal ingredients from Scotland’s extensive larder – such as bread coming from Milngavie’s Honeybee Bakery. This sets the scene for one of only two restaurants in Glasgow to win a 2019 Bib Gourmand Michelin award. Chef/proprietor Martin Thliveros assembles everything to order so isn’t sticky about dietary requirements and is willing to make changes no matter how late the notice. The set market menu changes every week and reaches the same high standards of culinary creation for an off-peak price, while a six-course tasting menu every Thursday offers an introduction to their signature dishes. Crispy beef cheek with roast beetroot and horseradish crème-fraîche as a starter looks pretty on the plate and is delicious and satisfying without being filling enough to spoil the appetite for subsequent delights. Sea bream, parsnip and vanilla, with braised greens, in a rich, softly smoky seafood sauce makes for a delicate and enjoyable main course. Charming and cheery staff, coupled with weekly menu changes, keep this must-visit operation fresh every time.
