About Machair Bar
Despite a bit of confusion over the menus, we enjoyed our meal.
The young waitress was very patient and helpful while we resolved things.
Starters were very good and the mains - fish and chips, steak - were excellent. Good to note that the rocket salad was dressed properly, the chips were very good and the steak was cooked as asked.
It's pub grub but good pub grub.
PS - Liked the Gaelic signs and the photography, glè mhath.
Scottish cuisine and craft beer in the West End
Based on Great Western Road, Machair Bar serves up an interesting roster of ever-changing craft beers. The bar is named after a rare type of Hebridean coastal plain and offers a menu that both celebrates Scotland’s landscape and complements the beers. Dishes are crafted by Lost Bothy, a kitchen specialising in Scottish street food. The decor is cosy and contemporary, with vivid murals on the walls.
A contemporary celebration of Scotland’s larder
The menu at Machair is a mixture of small plates and mains with a contemporary Scottish feel. Local ingredients play a big role in the dishes and you can ask the team to recommend craft beer pairings for them.
Small plates include home-cured Scottish salmon with parsley emulsion and house pickles, or crispy haggis with tamarind dip.
Over in the mains, you will find macaroni cheese with Ayrshire ham; Machair beef stovies, and smoked haddock kedgeree. Other choices include venison cheeseburger and the ‘Curry of the Moment’. There is also a spicy vegan burger with sriracha ‘slaw.
