European bistro in West End

Websters Bar and Bistro is part of Websters Theatre on Great Western Road. Formerly the Lansdowne Parish Church, this A-listed Gothic Revival church was originally built by John Honeyman in 1863 and features beautiful stained glass windows by Alf Webster. Open all day, the bistro attracts local residents and workers, couples looking for a romantic meal and, of course, theatre-goers.

Versatile, international menu

As well as a keenly priced lunch menu, Websters Bar and Bistro has a globe-trotting main menu with lots of options which are ideal for sharing among friends. In addition to sharing boards of antipasti, there is a selection of small plates including appealing choices such as wings and prawns, chilli mussels, slow cooked ox cheeks and veggie tempura.

The main courses take their inspiration from across the globe. The presa cut of Iberica pork might come cooked yakinuku style while the braised lamb with Moroccan spices is accompanied by parsnip cous cous. Veggie choices include the wild vegetable perogi served with mash and a lemon crème fraiche. The pricing is wallet-friendly.

Situated within Lansdowne Church, one of the most striking churches in Glasgow, it is now owned by the people from Cottiers who have taken the derelict building and turned it into a restaurant, bar and theatre. Even if you haven’t gone to mass in years, here’s five reasons to worship at the alter of Websters.
