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

River House (Stirling, Scotland) : Review

V: 12th January 2020


I decided to try somewhere new today and came across this place.

Looking Around

Driving up it looks so beautiful, I don’t know if this is still some Christmas decorations or these illuminated trees will be there all the time but wow look how amazing this looked.

Heading inside again the wow factor continued, this places was so nice inside and the atmosphere instantly was very relaxing.

Appetiser

Breaded Haggis Cake £6.95

Champit potatoes, turnip purée, crisp leek, whisky mustard sauce

I was going to order my go to starter then decided nah, lets order something different and this dish jumped out at me.

Visually this looked really nice on arrival, and it was a good portion size as a starter.

Taste time…

This was very good, the haggis has the consistency of a burger and everything together wow the flavours were just amazing.

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

Main Course :

Simon Howie Prime Steak Burger £12.95

Milk bun, traditional burger sauce, fries, onion ring.

Added extras : Cheddar & bacon £1.50 each

Wow this was a big portion, and the smell was amazing…time to dig in.

I am not an onion ring fan, so I left this.

The burger as a whole was very good, it was very thick and the flavours plus my little extras made it very tasty.

For me it could have used a little more sauce, but thats a personal preference.

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

Visit Overall :

Firstly I am very impressed with how this place look outside and inside, and how relaxed I felt inside. The menu had many options, so you should find something that tickles your tastebuds.

I really enjoyed tonights meal, and will return soon.

Money Making IOS Apps : Review

Before I start you need to know you will not be giving up your job with these apps I mention below, or with any of the other money making apps on iOS or Android.

These apps over time will give you some free cash, but its not enough to get you a dream holiday or home…now that I have said that lets continue.

The Apps

As always I only review products etc that I have used that way I can give you the best information and you can get a honest review.

As I said these apps wont give you your dream holiday but they will give you some cash, and yes its free….to a point. With every app you use, they collect data from you in some way but if your ok with this which you probably are since you are using many apps that do that right now then lets start the list of apps.

1. Airtime Rewards

Now this is a very cool app, you join for free connect your mobile network account and your credit cards and earn money towards your phone bill as you shop.

The shops are limited but am sure there are some you probably shop at on a regular basis like Primark, Boots, Debenhams to name a few and some get added on a regular basis so keep watching.

Last year I managed to get £25 off one of my months phone bill, which was great. Yeah its not much but I dont spend a lot in some of the shops linked to Airtime Rewards.

Currently in the past few weeks I now have a balance of £1.11 so once that gets to £10 I can send it to my phone bill how cool is that.

Use my code 7P79WHBY to get 0.50P when you join and then if you spend at one of the shops you will get an extra £1.00 all for free 🙂

Overall : 5/5

2. Quidco

Everyone shops online loads these days, so why not get some cash back when you do? this is what Quidco does.

Login to Quidco, search the retailer you want to shop at, click the link and the tracking starts. Do what you need to do, and purchase your item or items and pay.

Now that you have paid quidco tracks the click through and payment, and adds to the “Pending” in your account. Once the payment has been confirmed you get paid whatever the percentage was.

I have had £84.52 so far cash back in a year, with £5.00 in my account to be withdrawn

Join now using my link and get £10 FREE : https://www.quidco.com/raf/4667060/

Overall : 5/5

3. Enlightly

So this one is a questionnaire app, and you earn £x amount per questionnaire you complete and the amount adds up.

I have used this for a while and earned £20 but the past few months I have not had any questions asked to build up my cash. You may be lucky if you join but hey every little helps right? plus its free.

Overall : 2.5/5

4. Google Rewards

A new app for me, I have heard good things about this. Again you wait for questions to come to your account, answer them and earn cash. The amounts are small, but overtime will add up.

So far with a few weeks installed I have only managed to get £0.55, as I have not had many questions but you could have a different experience.

Overall : not used long enough to fully comment

Overall :

Dont be fulled into thinking you will earn loads of cash with any apps, as its always a low amount. The best ones are your cash back apps, as you will be able to withdraw your money faster.

Please do check these out if your interested, and also use my refer codes to get some free cash when you join 🙂

Airtime Rewards : code 7P79WHBY get 0.50P when you join then if you spend at one of the shops you will get an extra £1.00 all for free 🙂
