About 1051 GWR
Will definitely return
This is the second time we have visited 1051 GWR and it just gets better. The food and service were wonderful. We had the chateaubriand, which was more than enough for 2, but had to order more sides as we couldn’t decide what we wanted. Everything sounded so good, and it was good. Will definitely be going back for this again.
Booked via 5pm craft menu - 2 choices for starter which were lovely. Quite varied choice for mains: we ordered the Angus burger and mushroom and onion pizza. Both were very fresh and they don’t skimp on portion sizes. Choice pudding for an extra £3 sticky toffee pudding which was yummy. £17 for 3 courses which included a beer. Outstanding value and staff very attentive.
Can’t wait to go back.
Historic eating spot in the West End
Originally a Victorian railway station, 1051 GWR serves up cocktails, craft beers and elevated pub grub in a multi-stored property on Great Western Road. The landmark Category B sandstone building is designed in the 19th century Beaux Art style and inside, carriage-style booth seating conjures up its romantic railway heritage. Visitors can also drink, dine and watch the world go by in the garden area.
A wood-burning stove keeps everything toasty in the colder months while tall windows flood the space with light in summertime.
Scottish cuisine crafted from the best produce
1051 GWR is the first restaurant in the UK to be owned by a restaurateur with an MSc in Gastronomy and this is reflected in the carefully designed menu. Head chef Steven Caputa also sources produce from some of Scotland’s finest suppliers, with all fish caught fresh at Scottish coastal fishing ports and all beef reared locally then dry-aged for a minimum of 21 days. All of the cheeses are also Scottish while the ice cream is crafted in New Lanark.
Mains include a range of Scottish and British classics, grill dishes, pizzas and pastas. Highlights include herb-crusted Atlantic Cod with crushed black olives, clam butter and warm potato salad; a hearty steak & ale pie served up with a comfortingly creamy mash, or a duck egg bubble & squeak.
From the grill you can tuck into an 8oz sirloin steak with béarnaise sauce, or an 8oz beefburger served on toasted brioche with fireside chutney and real chips. Veggies can try out the lentil burger with red onion marmalade.
All of the 12-inch pizzas are stone-baked for extra flavour and you can customise yours with a choice of toppings. These include mozzarella, tomatoes, ham, mushroom, caramelised onion, chicken, jalapeños, prosciutto, pepperoni or olives.
