Food and drink fans looking for somewhere fun to go at the weekend will find what they are looking for in a small independent deli just 20 minutes out from the city centre.

Home to not only a successful and thriving family-run delicatessen and coffee shop, Billington's, which can be found in the picturesque town of Lenzie, is also the producer of one of Scotland's best gins.

Founded in 2012, Billington's is run by Mark and Sue Billington and their team and offers a wide range of speciality drinks, wines, beers and spirits, as well as artisan food items and hampers, coupled with a mouth-watering array of deli food.

Food fans can enjoy perusing in the deli before enjoying breakfast, brunch or lunch in the coffee shop with the team even offering an afternoon tea for two for just £12 per person.

Having previously taken home Scottish Gin of the Year in 2019 for their own Lenzie Gin, which you can buy from them, you'll not be surprised to hear that they specialise in gin and tonics and offer their own menu packed with premium juniper spirits as well as flights (your choice of three gins and two mixers for £18).

A popular food and drink destination they've also won a slew of awards from different competitions, including, this year alone, they have been named the Best in Glasgow, Best Speciality Drinks, Best Wine Selection, Best Cafe, and Best Cafe Food and Artisan Gin Stockists of the Year.

Testament to the hard work and dedication of the team family-run independent business, you'll find this welcoming deli at Kirkintilloch Road in Lenzie, right next to Lenzie Train Station.
