Review on The Corinthian Club
Widely regarded as one of the finest Victorian interiors in the UK, the Corinthian Club boasts five levels of bars, a restaurant, gaming and celebration spaces all under one Glasgow roof.
The restaurant occupies the original home of the telling clerks of the Union Bank of Scotland, although the bank's original safes now house one of the most impressive wine collections in the city – rather than notes and bullion. The magnificent ceiling, stunning lighting, stained glass and displays of contemporary art make this an ideal setting for an informal supper or a special occasion.
A gâteau of haggis, neeps and tatties with a Macallan whisky and Arran mustard sauce typifies the modern Scottish theme that runs through the menu. Indigenous ingredients show up strongly, as in a tian of West Coast crab and avocado with baby lettuce and gazpacho sauce or roast rump of Ayrshire lamb with a compote of lamb confit, crushed peas, aubergine purée and a light sauce of meat juices. To finish, the kitchen flexes its muscles for the likes of hot chocolate fondant with orange salad, pistachio ice cream and an espresso crème anglaise.
