Summary

Something of a local food hero, Colin Clydesdale’s long-established world food pioneer in the West End inspires strong but mixed feelings; all agree the eclectic food is “good and interesting”, but service can be a bit “cooler-than-thou”. The ambience of the lively upstairs bar is sometimes preferred to that of the basement restaurant.

Summary

Colin Clydesdale’s unique venue symbolises “genuine Glasgow” and although – with its bar and basement restaurant (for which you can book) – it “feels akin to a gastropub” the “décor is something else” and the “inventive and classy” cooking “so far ahead of the usual pub fare it’s not true”. “The quality and choice is equally good upstairs or down, and in the bar you’re surrounded by an eclectic West End mix of people”.

Summary

“If you want to experience the best of Glasgow’s West End, and be in an atmosphere of great humour, bonhomie and conviviality, this is the place to go” – Colin Clydesdale’s bar (upstairs)/restaurant (downstairs) continues to please, not least with dishes displaying a “unique Scottish twist”.

Summary

Perennially one of Glasgow’s favourite eateries – Colin Clydesdale & Carol Wright’s casual bar (upstairs) and more formal (basement) dining room has long been renowned locally for its “inventive, world-wide and daring menu”, served at “seriously cheap” prices.
