    A wee gem!

    The food was amazing (possibly the best chicken we've had). The facade does not do justice to the restaurant inside - the chalkboards outside give the illusion of a carvery but lovely and cosy inside. Dog friendly and loud(ish) music but nice atmosphere.A little on the expensive side but worth it. Would definitely go back.

    Slightly disappointing

    I ordered a ME Gin cocktail which was only a shot of spirit. It cost £7:50 which seems a bit pricey. For dinner I had the special - cod with herby potatoes and greens. The cod hadn't been deboned which meant it was a bit awkward to eat and I was still hungry after it. The potatoes weren't herby but roasted. Three of my dinner guests' chicken pot pie had burnt pastry. The staff however, were excellent. Very friendly and attentive. It's a shame the food let it down.

Family-friendly gastro pub in West End

The Kelbourne Saint is on Queen Margaret Drive in Glasgow’s West End. A former church hall, it was the location for the infamous Trainspotting scene where Begbie threw a pint pot into the crowd. These days, it is very much a family-friendly affair with a large beer garden which has its own kids’ play area, deck chairs and heated huts. The giant beer tankard – filled with their own Apache Pilsner – is always a talking point. The midweek quiz and acoustic nights add colour.

Rotisserie chicken and more

Rotisserie chicken headlines the menu at The Kelbourne Saint. Naturally reared, grain-fed chickens from Strathaven are brined, coated in herbs and slowly roasted in the eye-catching rotisserie. Other options include locally sourced pork ribs, burgers and specials such as octopus and rose veal. A wide range of side dishes includes chicken salt fries, collard greens and corn on the cob. Starter options range from a chicken and vegetable broth to Moroccan-spiced pulled pork with a lime and coconut cream. Veggie options might be the kale and spring onion barley risotto or the truffled polenta cubes with garlic crisps. Sunday roasts, daily specials and a decent kids’ menu complete the line-up.
