DryGate Brewery NEW Bar Food and Cocktail Menu (Glasgow) : Review

Invited

V: 6th March 2020


The guys over at DryGate Brewery, invited me over to the launch night of their new bar Food and Cocktail menu.

Looking Around

I have been to Drygate many times, with friends or with the craft beer tasting tours so I know it very well.

The event tonight was upstairs, the new menu for upstairs only.

The Food

I didnt know what was in store for me tonight, but I was mega looking forward to it.

I was told that a sampler would be brought round to me, and I could select 2 cocktails to try which was great.

Sampler

  • Pizza By The Slice
  • Cauliflower Wings (VG)
  • Tacos : Crisp Fried Haddock
  • House Made Nachos (V)

All of these samples were very nice, and full of flavour, my favourite from this selection was the Cauliflower Wings and I could have easily had more.

The fish taco was nice, but the taco broke up for me very easily so I couldn’t grab and eat, I had to use my knife and fork.

And there was more..

This was Drygates Vegan Curry was served in a tiffin tray with bread, rice and dips.

Presentation wise I really liked this, and as you can see its very instagramable…..now for the taste..

This was a VERY good curry, and extremely moreish.

If you like currys you need to try this, and I promise you you wont regret it.

Cocktails :

Orinoco Russian : Vodka, Coffee Liqueur, Orinoco Syrup, Milk and Cream Chocolate

and

Pineapple Rum Old Fashioned : Plantation Pineapple Rum, Sugar and Orange Bitters

Both these cocktails were very good, but my fav and one I would definitely have again is the Orinoco Russian mmmmm so good 🙂

Visit Overall :

Note : Just because this was an invite, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the day.

Firstly a big thanks to DryGate for my invite, I really had a great time and good food and cocktails.

I really loved the Cauliflower Wings and the Drygate Vegan curry, these were my top two dishes from tonight.

Overall I can recommend you visit and try the new menu and the cocktails, as I really enjoyed what I had. Thanks again guys 🙂

See you soon

Corona Bar & Kitchen for The Dispensary Bar’s Cocktail Factory Event VLOG

Homage to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, the event structured around the film will feature a 3-course dinner and 3 cocktails for £30 per head.

I got an #invite to Glasgow Shawlands Corona Bar & Kitchen for The Dispensary Bar’s Cocktail Factory Event, where we would be treated to an evening of pure imagination with a 3 course meal and themed cocktails.

The evening started with the film Charlie & the Chocolate factory playing, and some sweets to nibble on while we waited for the food.

Then the 1st course and cocktail arrived.

  • First Course : Scotched Golden Egg served on a Sweet Nest & Mr Turkentine Cocktail.
  • Second Course : Pan Seared Duck Breast & Augustus Gloop Cocktails
  • Third Course : Double Chocolate Fudge Brownie & Zizzy Lifting Drink Cocktail

V: 23rd October 2019


Well this is a first for me, as I have had many plans over the past few years to come here and eat or drink…or even both but something has always made me change my plans.

Tonight I was attending a Jagermeister Cold Brew event so I thought I would visit early and finally see the Tiki Bar and try the food.

The Food

Since I had an event to attend I didn’t want to be late, so I decided just to go for small dishes for quickness….but next visit I will try some other dishes.

Dinner

Honey Pork Ribs £6.50

pork ribs in sticky honey sauce (Ce) (GF, DF, NF)

This smelled good and looked nice, and I have not had ribs for ages so I was really looking forward to this.

This was messy, full of flavour and just mega mmm the meat was tender and the sauce was really good.

Its a bit costly for what you get compared to other restaurants.

  • Presentation : 4
  • Flavour : 4.5
  • Value For Money : 3
  • Overall : 4

Salt & Pepper Squid £6.50

lightly battered squid tossed in mixed spices with Thai sweet & sour dressing, served with green Mayo

I love this dish so I had to try it here.

I picked up my squid and it was soft! huh what ever sauce they drizzled over the top has made it soft…shouldn’t this be crispy?

It was nice but the flavour was lacking and also I expected them to be crispy or even just a little.

Again a little costly for the portion size.

  • Presentation : 4
  • Flavour : 3
  • Value For Money : 3
  • Overall : 3.5

Sweet :

Deep Fried Mars Bar £3.00

I saw this and had to try how here do it.

Ok so this was actually really good, I think I still prefer the one from a chip shop but it was nice here and I would have this again here.

  • Presentation : 4
  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Visit Overall :

What a disappointment, don’t get me wrong the food was good but a little costly for the portion sizes as I have had these dishes at other restaurants for cheaper and was just as good or better.

Sorry guys, I will try something else next time I visit.
