Surf & Turf is one of those American ideas that have gained plenty of traction on this side of the Atlantic. Anyone who says that beef and seafood is not a winning combination simply hasn’t tried it yet.
It helps when the fare is prepared at the skill level provided by The Scullery on Claremont Street in Finnieston. Groaning under the weight of its rave reviews, The Scullery is a welcome destination for today’s Big Deal. With starters, a bottle of wine and a Surf & Turf special for two, it promises a memorable meal out.
Acclaimed Finnieston cafe bistro
Social media reviewers rave about The Scullery. Press reviews in The Sunday Herald, Herald and Scotland on Sunday are equally glowing. Even the Scottish Entertainment Awards recognised The Scullery with a Best Scottish Newcomer Award.
The key is the stylish contemporary British cuisine, delivered without fuss or pretension in a chic but informal space. It’s a great place for a relaxed rendezvous and superb dining.
Dining in style
Available Sunday to Thursday, noon to 8pm, the Big Deal is for two and offers a starter of Jail Bread with butters, dipping oil and olives, a Surf & Turf main course of Bavette steak, whole tiger prawns, hand cut rooster fries and garlic & herb butter, plus a bottle of San Abello Merlot.
The handmade Jail Bread included as a starter is so-named because it is made by prisoners in Polmadie as part of a rehabilitation program teaching career skills. So this Big Deal also makes a valuable social contribution.
Your meal is accompanied by a bottle of Chilean Merlot, with aromas and flavours of ripe plums and sweet spice, with subtle notes of cinnamon, coffee and dark chocolate, the perfect complement to the beef.
The Scullery has a long line of 5pm members bestowing their approval. Recent reviews include the following:
‘I was very impressed with the food, service and overall experience.’
‘Excellent evening, third time there, will definitely return.’
Treat a friend
The winning ambience and superb cuisine at The Scullery make it the perfect place for a catch-up with a friend. With this Big Deal, enjoy an excellent Surf & Turf meal in cool surroundings.
