About The Raven
As soon as we were seated the waitress took our drinks order and we had our drinks within minutes.
As I hadn't seen my friend in quite a while we had a lot to catch up on. The waitress was extremely patient with us as it took a few trips back to our table to get our food order as we were too busy gabbing. All the staff were lovely.
I had the Titan Burger and was not disappointed. My friend had the brisket baguette and we ordered two sides (mac & cheese + onion rings) We could not finish our mains never mind the sides.
We had a two bottles of wine, four vodkas with our food and the bill came to approx £75. It was excellent value for money.
I would highly recommend it.
Platter deal was great, quick service and food ok. the choice of sides was good and very filling sharing between 2. I would defo recommend their nachos.
City centre craft beer bar and smokehouse
The Raven is a welcoming bar and restaurant on Renfield Street in Glasgow city centre. The stripped back decor at The Raven allows customers to focus on the stuff that really matters: smokehouse menus, craft beers and all the sport you could wish for over eleven big screens. The ever changing roster of craft and cask ales is a real draw.
BBQ cooked low and slow
The smokehouse chefs at The Raven specialise in cooking meat low and slow. This means melting ribs, succulent pulled pork, tender beef brisket and savoury wings. Added to this, there are hot sandwiches – think Po’ Boys and grilled cheese – burgers, burrito bowls and hot dogs. As well as the American classics, there is a selection of traditional bar food favourites. The fish and chips feature IPA Joker batter while the mac and cheese can be upgraded with beef brisket, honey glazed pulled gammon or BBQ pulled pork.
The menu is a meat-lover’s dream but there are several veggies choices. Think nachos, halloumi and pepper skewers, bean burgers and falafel wraps.
