The team behind Redmonds of Dennistoun branch out to the southside, with a food menu full of delights, cocktails and craft beers.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

From the team behind the East End’s Redmond's of Dennistoun comes Phillies, a hip, open-plan space where Pollokshaws meets Kilmarnock Road. Much like its older sibling, you sense Phillies will become a big favourite in this part of town. Food wise, the plates are enticing – no ordinary pub grub here. Blackened cod has an immensely satisfying paprika kick, but the real knockout is the gnocchi, served with a delicious butternut purée and toasted pine nuts. Leave room for dessert. The sweet potato doughnuts sound fascinating and taste even better, served with bourbon caramel – they are a highlight. Phillies shares a building with the off-licence Curious Liquids, where you can peruse craft beers and ciders and take them through to enjoy with your food (corkage applies), but the pub serves the best in craft beer, and does a cracking margarita too – the Toreador – infused with apricot.
