Food Review: Opium, 191 Hope Street, Glasgow

30/03/2015 // 0 Comments

We’d been meaning to visit Opium for years, mainly because we love dim sum and they have a dim sum menu, but just never got around to it until recently… It was mid-week and we were the first diners there – inside the décor is minimal: grey walls, candle light and small [...]

Food review: Kervan Palace, 61 Bridge Street, Glasgow, G5 9JB

25/03/2015 // 0 Comments

Just across the Clyde in a curious section of street that boasts a Rangers pub, an Egyptian restaurant, an African social club and one of Glasgow’s best real ale pubs you will also find Kervan Palace. This place used to be the Mirch Masala with the Disneyish font, which always looked busy [...]

Food Review: Byron, 115 Deansgate, Manchester M3 2NW

24/03/2015 // 1 Comment

Byron is making a name for themselves down south and they’ll be heading to Glasgow soon. We’d considered visiting them in London a year or two ago when we first heard about them. On this occasion we were in Manchester and looking for either Byron or Almost Famous – we stumbled [...]

The Taynuilt Hotel By Oban is easily reached by car and train so ideal for an overnight getaway or a base for exploring the local area. The historic Bonawe iron furnace is only a mile from the hotel. We took the railway up and enjoyed the scenery whilst having a pre-dinner drink and read of a [...]

Producer: Stewart Tower Dairy, Stanley, Perthshire

15/03/2015 // 0 Comments

As part of our visit to Gleneagles, we got the chance to visit one of their local suppliers, Stewart Tower Dairy. With the well known price squeezing for milk, farms like Stewart Tower Dairy have had to diversify. 70 lovely Holstein Fresian ladies provide the raw material for their home made ice [...]

Review: Ed’s Easy Diner, Food Court, St Enoch Shopping Centre, Glasgow

12/03/2015 // 0 Comments

The food court at St.Enoch’s has extended and we were possibly transported back to the 1950s with a visit to Ed’s Easy Diner – the chrome, jukeboxes on tables and the red booths seating create a welcoming retro environment. We grabbed a booth at a busy lunchtime. The Colonel was [...]
