What cereal do cats prefer?
OK, we get it. Our gags won’t make you laugh.
Happily today’s Handpicked Deal on dinner for two from Finsbay in Milngavie will make you smile.
Choose the unconventional
Located on Main Street, Finsbay is an endearingly quirky restaurant, bar and café.
A welcoming neighbourhood hangout, it features retro chic decor which will bring back memories for anyone who remembers the Sixties and Seventies.
G Plan furniture, a Tretchikoff-style portrait and a wall decorated with rotary dial phones set the tone.

Since opening last year, Finsbay has quickly established itself as a firm favourite in Milngavie. Taken from Finsbay’s 5pm page, these quotes give a flavour of what Finsbay is all about:
‘Restaurant with a difference. The food was lovely. Good value. Restaurant is 70s style but works well. The TV which is now a fish tank was quirky. There was an open mic evening at 9pm. The musicians were very good. It wasn’t too loud either which suited us as we could still chat. We really enjoyed our evening and would definitely go back day or night.’ Rating 4.5/5
This reviewer was just as happy and more succinct:
‘Great meal, service and place.’ Rating 5/5
Catch-up with a friend
