About Alston Bar & Beef
Excellent food and service
Had the Christmas shopper menu. It was great value, the food was excellent. Loved the croquettes and steak sandwich. Other diners said their steaks were beautiful. We also got a couple of sides of truffle mac and cheese, which I think might be the best I've tasted. Great cocktails and wine too. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Excellent food, staff and value!

Look no further, this is it.... cannot rate this high enough!
Scottish beef under Central Station
Tucked away under Glasgow’s Central Station and entered via the station’s Gordon Street entrance, Alston Bar & Beef is an atmospheric Scottish restaurant and gin bar. Built over the site of the 19th century Alston Street, the restaurant has a quirky decor that features tiled vaults, huge mirrors and lights made with decanters. The bar offers a good selection of intriguing cocktails along with some 50 gins, around a dozen of which are Scottish.
Dry aged Tweed Valley beef
With dishes like the pan-fried sea bream and the pea and Roquefort risotto on the menu, diners are by no means limited to beef. However, the dry aged steaks take pride of place at Alston Bar & Beef. A local, family-run butcher supplies the restaurant with specially selected Tweed Valley beef. Along with sharing dishes of Porterhouse steaks, the beef is available as rump, fillet, sirloin, rib eye, as a bone in rib and as a club steak.
Classic sauces, bone marrow and garlic crayfish tails are offered as accompaniments along with sides such as mac ‘n’ cheese, salad and, of course, Parmesan and truffle chips.
