    One of the best

    My friend and I were heading to the Hydro to see Kylie and I booked Alston for us to have dinner before the show. Food was superb and good size portions. The staff and service provided was fantastic. Can’t wait to come back!! Well done Alston 😁

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.

Transport links and local attractions

Located under Central Station, Alston Bar & Beef is very handy for train and the subway. The nearest car park is on Mitchell Street. The restaurant is well placed for trains to the SECC and Hydro. Nearby attractions includes The Arches performance space, the Gallery of Modern Art and Buchanan Street’s shopping opportunities.
