Review on Arisaig Restaurant & Bar
Inspired by childhood holidays to the West Coast village of Arisaig, this bar-cum-restaurant is a smartly presented venue in the heart of Glasgow city centre a few minutes' walk from the stations and George Square.
Menus are divided up into 'The Sea' and 'The Land' and the kitchen makes good use of indigenous Scottish ingredients including haggis, Stornoway black pudding, Shetland monkfish and Buccleuch beef. Typical dishes might include Loch Leven surf clams tossed in sea lettuce with lemon and garlic oil, roast venison sausages with curly kale mash and Innis and Gunn Aged Ale onion gravy, and some intriguing vegetarian options like breaded roast red pepper and lovage loaf with broccoli mash and beetroot purée. Cheeses are from the Isle of Arran and Gigha, and desserts might feature Cairgein seaweed and cinnamon pudding or Stag's Breath cranachan with Orkney fudge ice cream.
Over 100 single malts are stocked at the bar (including 'special bottlings and a few wee gems') and the wine list is peppered with unusual bottles from around the globe. The restaurant offers free Wi-Fi internet access to its customers; pre-theatre menus are also worth noting and there are plans to open for breakfast in the near future.
