Glasgow gastropub named among the 50 best in the UK

The Michelin star pub was praised for its "global approach to the concept of a traditional British gastropub".
The review added: "Stravaigin’s menu is a jewel of different cuisines whilst relying on incredible local produce.

Customers have sung this gastropub's praises on Tripadvisor with one reviewer saying: "Staff, Food, Venue…. Amazing !! This restaurant is by far the best in Scotland, the staff were attentive at all times, the venue has a warm inviting atmosphere however the food was off the scale."
Another user added: "The service was lovely, the food was outstanding."

It was praised for its comfort food and a large selection of great drinks with the critics saying: "They focus on super comforting food here, pairing it up with craft beer and a large selection of other great drinks. The sort of place where you could get seriously comfortable and not want to move for a couple of hours."
The Doric in Edinburgh was the second highest-rated Scottish pub at number 35 with the reviewer saying: "A gastropub that dates back to the 17th-Century? We’re intrigued, and you should be too.
