Now in its 25th year, Colin Clydesdale’s well-known local operates on the principle ‘think global, eat local’, serving an eclectic selection of dishes on world food principles using Scottish ingredients in its basement restaurant. Many regulars just go for a burger or other bar snacks in the popular ground floor bar, however (same kitchen).

With its upstairs bar and downstairs dining room, this West End stalwart is celebrating its twenty fifth year of funky fare, featuring the likes of haggis ’n’ neeps and burgers alongside an eclectic array of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian offerings. But despite being oft-cited as a ‘founding father’ of the contemporary Glaswegian food scene, it attracted too little reporter interest for a rating this year.

Colin Clydesdale’s “unique” venue is a stalwart of the West End, particularly the upstairs bar that’s “always full of a genuine crowd who want to soak up the ambience”, and enjoy “local favourites from neeps and haggis to fish and chips” – all of which can also be taken “more formally” in the downstairs restaurant.

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.
