    Glesga Greatness

    We were delighted to find a restaurant that serves real Scottish food where they say every dish tells a story and ingredients are 95% locally sourced. The menu had delights such as Josie’s Cheesy Beano to Irn-Bru Fish & Chips (which looked amazing!) All dishes sounded mouth watering and our biggest issue was what to choose. For ‘afore’ we opted for delicious piping hot Cullen Skink and also the Wood Pigeon with Black Pudding, both went down a treat. For our ‘Mains’ we had a truly scrumptious Buckie (yes Buckie!) & Venison burger, the brioche bun worked a treat with it. The Sea Bass Kedgeree was cooked to perfection and had a nice little kick to it. Although we were on the verge of being stuffed and glad we hadn’t chosen from the ‘wee dods’ (sides) we had to try something from the ‘Efters’ menu. We opted for the stunning Cheeseboard and the Cranachan which was yummy goodness. We washed all the delicious food down with a very tasty bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon which was very reasonably priced. With friendly staff and a beautiful restaurant serving lush food this wee gem is sure to thrive in Glasgow. Looking forward to our return visit.

Modern Scottish restaurant in Finnieston

Taking its name from the symbols on Glasgow’s coat of arms, Birdtree & Bellfish offers an updated take on traditional Scottish hospitality. Part of the Lorne Hotel on Sauchiehall Street, it is a cosy, homely space with an open fire and two bars: one cocktail bar and one trad Scottish pub. A relaxed, casual restaurant, Birdtree & Bellfish is perfect for lunch with colleagues; dinner with family and friends or a romantic meal for two.

Contemporary take on traditional Scottish cuisine

The chefs at Birdtree & Bellfish deliver classic Scottish home-style cooking with a modern flourish. It is the sort of food that your granny might cook if she watched MasterChef. Sometimes this means traditional dishes like Cullen skink or clootie dumpling with ‘yer granny’s custard’. With other dishes, this approach means mixing and matching unexpected ingredients. Think along the lines of lamb shanks with Dundee marmalade; fish in an Irn Bru batter or venison burger flavoured with Buckfast. Other choices hint at Glasgow’s love affair with Indian cooking. The chicken chaat with Dalwhinnie sweet and sour glaze and the cumin-scented sea bass served with kedgeree, spinach and a spiced coconut cream are good examples.
