About Tron Bar & Kitchen
Melt in the Mouth Shin of Beef
Went for a pre-theatre meal with my partner before we attended the Panto. The service was great, a very helpful young Irish girl and the food delicious especially the shin of beef served with roasted potatoes, parsnips and carrots in the most tasty gravy. Will definetly be back for more.
We had a pre-theatre meal here on Saturday night and I would highly recommend a visit. The burger was fantastic. I thought my dessert (eton mess) was a little on the small side but it was sweet so perhaps any more would have been too much. The service was brilliant, friendly and attentive.
Casual dining in the Tron Theatre
On the Trongate in the Merchant City, Tron Bar + Kitchen is linked to the Tron Theatre, one of Scotland’s leading producing and presenting theatres. An informal spot, it offers casual dining in a laidback setting. Reclaimed timber tables and vintage lights furnish the three separate dining areas in the bar and kitchen. During the sunnier months, there is also the option to dine al fresco.
Contemporary Scottish with a modern European twist
While the Tron Bar + Kitchen is understandably busy for pre-theatre meals and post-show drinks, it is also popular for light lunches, daytime cakes and coffee plus enjoyable dinners. The lunch menu includes sharing platters, salads, gourmet sandwiches, risotto and burgers.
Scottish ingredients are especially prominent in an evening menu which includes starters such as Cullen skink and Macsween haggis bon bons. Among the tempting main courses are dishes like the Scrabster king prawns in a Thai curry and the Chicken Ulysses – Ayrshire chicken with haggis, a lemon and thyme stuffing, green beans, creamed chive potatoes, anCnoc and smoked garlic cream.
