Quirky decor, great food!!!
We had a great meal with no pressure to get us out the door even though we had a deal. The starters were a bit different one of them being mac’n’cheese,but very tasty 😋. The mains we chose, Finsbay burger and fish & chips were definitely substantial & delicious. The red velvet cheesecake was fabulous !!! Will certainly be back !!!
Finsbay - definitely worth a visit!
Very comfortable, helpful staff, simple menu/food but very well prepared and presented. We went on a Thursday night, and there was live folk music from 9pm (open mike so you can join in!) - enjoyed it all. Will definitely go back and would encourage you to try it - see you there!
Informal Milngavie café, bar and restaurant
Milngavie’s Main Street plays host to Finsbay, an endearingly quirky restaurant, bar and café. Serving everything from breakfast through to dinner and cocktail nightcaps, it is a welcoming neighbourhood hangout. The retro chic decor is fun and will bring back memories for anyone who remembers the Seventies. G Plan furniture, a Tretchikoff-style portrait and a wall decorated with rotary dial phones set the tone. Open mic nights and regular gin club evenings keep it lively.
Scottish produce, global flavours
Offering brunch, lunch and dinner menus, Finsbay’s chefs like to combine Scottish ingredients such as Stornoway black pudding and Arran cheddar with recipes from around the world. You could start your day at Finsbay with a full Scottish breakfast or a lighter bowl of berries, yoghurt and granola. Lunch might be a gourmet sandwich, salad or a croque monsieur.
The dinner menu is very flexible with a range of small plates and sharing platters. Typical starters might be the chicken satay skewers or the salt and pepper calamari. Along with pots of mussels and a selection of chunky burgers, there are main courses such as beer-battered haddock, beef stew with Parmesan mash and a grilled pork chop with chorizo and black pudding hash and peppered spinach.
