The Square Bar & Restaurant
Westend bistro serving from brunch to dinner, with plenty of Scottish produce and influences, plus occasional pop-ups and take-overs.
Broomhill is a pleasant but quiet part of the West End, overshadowed in the food and drink department by nearby Hyndland and Partick. It’s the kind of place that needs a decent neighbourhood restaurant, and the Square admirably fits the bill. Serving everything from a quick coffee or a bacon roll (it’s next door to shops and a dry cleaners) to confit duck leg with dauphinoise potatoes, the Square serves local residents and workers from morning till night, seven days a week. Independently owned, this place is free to go its own way and has settled on a mixed all-day menu that includes toasted sandwiches and burgers alongside more elaborate and creative dishes, such as chicken breast stuffed with skirlie and sea bass with a bean and pepper cassoulet. À la carte prices are reasonable and it runs a number of attractive deals, including a Tuesday steak night package of sirloin and chips for two, plus a bottle of wine, for under thirty quid. Desserts are a strong point, with a variety of cheesecake made fresh every day.
