This is my local – lucky me. Come here for first class food and drink and the best cocktails in the West End. The Mojitos they serve in here are something else.
On the street level, head for the right hand side of the pub if it’s just a drink you’re after; head to the left, if you’d like to have a meal. There’s also a restaurant downstairs. The kitchen is open plan so you can see what’s on the menu by watching the chefs at work.
The menu is varied, offering high-quality international cuisine – their motto is ‘think global, eat local. If you’ve got money to spare, try one of the Specials. If you’re on a budget, go for one of the Stravaigin staples – curry, fish and chips or haggis, neeps and mash. I’d recommend them all. If you’ve got any room left after your main course, try the chocolate brownie with butterscotch sauce and cream. You won’t regret it.
Children are welcome until 8 in the evening and they have their own (very good) menu.
if you happen to be in Glasgow on the first Monday of the month, check out the Stravaigin’s special Thali nights. You won’t be disappointed. Details on the website.
