About Garvie & Co
Food was good, service good and nice place
A great find
We headed here for an early dinner before an event we were attending in Milngavie. Very handy for the train station.
Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the decor inside is lovely.
The layout is unusual, as the building is quite narrow, so the bar area is at the front, then the bakery/cafe area, then the restaurant at the back. As we had never been before, and there was no member of staff in attendance at the bar when we arrived, we spent a bit of very self-conscious time hovering near the door, wondering where we were meant to go to enquire about our booking.
However, once someone did appear, and we were shown to our table, the service was very good.
The 5pm menu is small, but there should be something to suit most people's taste. We had pakora and soup to start, followed by fish & chips and chicken and haggis in a whisky sauce. We were too full for desserts!
Lovely meal, definitely worth the train journey for us!
We'll be back!
Neighbourhood bakery, bar and restaurant
Offering everything from breakfast through to lunch, dinner and cocktail night caps, Garvie & Co is on Station Road in Milngavie. A handsome space, it has large ground floor windows for watching the world go by while the upstairs bar is perfect for a glass of bubbles or craft beer – often accompanied in the evenings by a pianist. Garvie and Co is popular with the local community for morning coffee and cakes, catch-up lunches and tremendous a la carte dinners. The outside seats are at a premium when the sun is shining.
Seasonal, local and from scratch
With a bakery display and ever evolving menus which range from afternoon tea to Sunday roasts via a range of breakfasts and a numerous la carte options, Garvie and Co caters for most occasions. The common thread is that the in-house chefs and bakers like to use fresh, seasonal and local produce and, as often as is possible, make everything from scratch.
The menus include simple dishes like the grilled salmon alongside more complex dishes such as the Goan style seafood curry. Pride of place goes to the beef, chicken and burgers cooked on the charcoal-fired Josper oven. The steaks are sourced from the award-winning Cairnhill Farm in Ayrshire.
