1901 was an eventful year in world history: Queen Victoria died; US President William McKinley was assassinated and, less historically significant but still freaking amazing, school teacher Annie Taylor went over the Niagara Falls in a barrel and survived.
Take up today’s Big Deal at the 1901 Bar and Bistro in Glasgow’s Southside and we can’t guarantee quite so much drama but you will have a memorable meal.
Long a neighbourhood favourite, the 1901 Bar and Bistro has been recently revamped under new ownership.
The friendly, relaxed atmosphere remains the same though and the food continues to win new admirers.
As well as a 175ml glass of house red or white, the Big Deal is for your choice of starter, main course and dessert from the following menu:
Black pudding and smoked bacon salad with a reduced balsamic dressing
1901 famous chicken liver pate served on a bed of crisp salad with tomato and red onion chutney and toast
Soup of the day served with freshly baked French bread
Dry-aged 8 oz ribeye steak
Salmon fillet served with white wine, mustard and leek sauce
Vegetarian option: veg lasagne or spicy bean burger
Sticky toffee pudding
Profiteroles with whipped cream
The new 1901 Bar and Bistro is already attracting good reviews from diners. This is what Dougie123 had to say on TripAdvisor recently:
‘Very good food and service. Just back from our first visit to the restaurant / bistro side of the pub and we were not disappointed… Portion size is good and we did not have one complaint. Service good, food well presented and served by smiley happy staff. Will definitely return.’
