About The Mallard
As this was our first visit we didn't know what to expect. We both had the hake with crushed potatoes and fennel, it was wonderful and a great choice. I'd go back for a meal again
Enjoyed a lovely dinner prior to attending a gig at kelvingrove bandstand.
The service was great and the staff very friendly.
We started with cocktails, all delicious particularly the one with rum and pineapple... I can't recall the name!
Food was good especially the lamb tagine, the meat was so tender and tasty..
Lovely dinner experience all round.
Neighbourhood bar and bistro in West End
The Mallard Bar is on Great Western Road in Glasgow’s West End. Decked out with neat mix of bare bricks, chunky wooden furniture, Harris tweed and a gorgeous copper-topped bar, it’s a stylish neighbourhood hangout for a bite to eat or a nifty cocktail. On sunny days, the outside tables are much in demand from customers who want to sip on something frosty while watching the West End street life.
