* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Part of the Holiday Inn, this long-established brasserie has origins dating back over 40 years and is quite well-known to locals as a city-centre standby. Limited feedback regarding its 1970s-style French bistro/brasserie staples (soupe à l’oignon, boeuf bourguignon, Pêche Melba) but it’s tipped before a show at one of the nearby theatres.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

The chef

Starting his working life in Glasgow in 1983 in Daly’s, an upmarket department store where he catered for its board of directors and provided a full a la carte menu for the dining restaurant, Gerry has gone on to win a multitude of awards at many of the city’s leading fine dining restaurants and hotels in a distinguished culinary career that has included periods at The Malmaison (the original legendary fine dining French restaurant at Glasgow Central station), the Skean Dhu Hotel (rebranded subsequently to the Hospitality Inn then the Thistle), the Millennium Copthorne Hotel, The Triangle Restaurant (which won a Taste of Scotland Restaurant of the Year), Parklands Country Club and Glasgow Forum Hotel (rebranded to the Moathouse then the Crowne Plaza).

It is at La Bonne Auberge, where he has cooked for two decades, that Gerry has been able to express himself most fully in the kitchen. He continue to use many of the classical French cooking techniques in the kitchen, but with a more modern approach and using local fresh seasonal produce wherever possible.
