About Church On The Hill
I have driven by this gem of a place a dozen times and never thought to eat there. Good food, friendly staff, great atmosphere and brilliant value-for-money, the only very minor negative might be that there are perhaps too many tv screens around if you wanted a romantic dinner for two. Otherwise, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Great food, excellent service just a shame we didn't know there was a quiz on
Gastropub and buzzing local on Glasgow’s south side
Diners, drinkers and sports fans on the south side of Glasgow now have a one-stop shop in the form of the stylish Church on the Hill gastropub. The building, a former church, is imposing but the ambiance is relaxed and contemporary, the cuisine similar, mixing pub classics with modern restaurant-style creations. Entertainment includes a Thursday night quiz and DJs on Friday and Saturday, plus plenty of plasma screens for followers of the big games. The pub has a beer garden.
Pub favourites and international flavours
Church on the Hill’s menu changes seasonally and mixes and matches traditional pub fare with some stylish contemporary and Asian-influenced choices. Stone-baked pizzas feature alongside a choice of steaks and burgers. Starters include crispy tempura prawns, salt and pepper calamari and, closer to home, seared scallops with Stornoway black pudding, tattie scone and an Arran cheese sauce.
Vegetarians are not forgotten, with a wide choice of pasta dishes, veggie burgers and creative salads.
Sweets include classics such as sticky toffee pudding alongside seasonal specials such as rhubarb crème brulee, with Ayrshire Glen ice-cream a regular feature.
