Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Sitting just on the edge of the vast Pollok Country Park, the Boyd Roderick has the feel of a cosy country pub. It cunningly manages to combine aspects to please all comers – a varied menu of Scottish gourmet favourites, comfy sofas for coffee and cake or use of the Wi-Fi, bar stools on which one can philosphise, and a big sports screen. Oh, and dogs are welcome too – which is a great bonus. There is a similar balance in the menu, too, with Scottish staples including Cullen skink and some gut-busting meaty grills countered by contemporary approaches such as the small plates ‘pick ’n’ mix’ selection (three for a tenner). There is care and attention in the kitchen and some glimpses of foodie flair with the likes of gravadlax, coriander hummus and parmesan crisps in the selection. There are interesting choices of craft and guest beers as well as some entertaining seasonal cocktail promotions. Overall, this is a thoroughly likeable local boozer.
