Harden's survey result

“After a few years of stooping from its previous heights the chip is back to its best!” This famous Glaswegian veteran (est. 1971) put in a strong showing in this year’s survey, with general agreement that “it’s still a top eating place” with a superbly “atmospheric” interior, “relaxed and knowledgeable staff” and “expensive but stunningly good”, modern Scottish cuisine; with a particular highlight being the “fantastic wine and amazing malt whisky list”.
“On the bustling Byres Road”, this “fantastic Glaswegian institution” (est. 1971) is known for its “brilliant, relaxed atmosphere”, particularly for a date in the cute conservatory. Gastronomically speaking, its famous wine list and one of Scotland’s best whisky selections are at least an equal attraction to the modern Scottish cooking.
“Though it's been going for decades”, this famous West End institution (est. 1971) with its “very pretty conservatory” and idiosyncratic lay-out is “still lovely”, combining “quite pricey but good” modern Scottish cooking with “one of the best wine lists you’ll find anywhere”.
“A great Glasgow institution”; this “buzzing” West End venue, established in 1971, has inspired very consistent feedback of late – even a reporter who notes that the Scottish cuisine “doesn’t really move with the times” concedes it’s “always solid”, and the list of wines and whiskies is “biblical”.
