Beefeater Grill – The Castle (Newton Mearns) 2021 : Review

The Visit

While my mum and gran were off shopping in Silverburn my grandpa wanted to come here and eat, so we dropped them off and headed here.

I was here many many years ago, and enjoyed the meal then so I was looking forward to tonight.

Though this time round on arrival while we were standing at the table trying to help my grandpa from his wheelchair to the seat, we were asked what drinks we would like….surely waiting till we sat would be more professional?

This pattern seemed to happen for all the tables around us, before anyone sat down or even close to their table they were asked what to drink….personally I think its a bit soon…let people sit and then ask.

The Food

I decided to go for something light, as I wasn’t too hungry tonight.

Crispy Chicken Wings x5 (Starter) £5.99
Five tender chicken wings serviced with a choice of Piri Piri or sticky BBQ sauce.

This was a good sized portion for me, and they looked nice.

Time to taste.

Oh, ok so firstly the chicken was cooked perfectly as it came of the bone very easily.

Flavour of the coating was nothing, and I am glad it came with a sauce as it was very bland without it.

My Rating :

Rating: 1 out of 5.

Triple Cooked Chips £3.29

These were probably the best part of the meal to be honest.

Nice flavour and texture and the crunch was perfect.

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

Sorry guys but the service with regards to letting us sit down first befre asking for drinks I personally didnt think was good.

The wings were very bland, and 100% needed sauce which should be an addition to the flavour.

My dad and grandfather also said their food was extremely bland…..and that’s before I commented about mine.

Tonight for me was not great, sorry guys but it could have been an off night for them? or something but please dont let this stop you going and trying them.

My Rating :

BURGUR Grill – (Halal) (Pollokshields, Glasgow) : Review

Invited

V: 16th March 2020

** This review was typed up before lock down! Please check with the restaurant if it is open or doing home delivery, and if they are check them out! **


The guys over at BurgurGrill Invited me, to their official launch night for BurgurGrill.

Looking Around

Inside has a very cool rustic look, and at the same time a very relaxing feel to it. I really liked the design inside, as I felt it really suited a burger restaurant.

The Food

I was given the menu and took a seat, and had a look.

Since this was a burger restaurant I asked the guys here what they would recommend, firstly was the beef burger and secondly was the butter chicken burger. Both of these options sounded really good, but I had to go with beef.

Main Course(s) :

Beef Burger : £N/A tonight (Normally £4.50 weekdays, £5.00 weekends)

served on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, gherkin, mayo, cheese & fried onion

This was a nice looking burger, and it smelled really good to so it was time to take a bite and see how it tasted.

This was a really nice burger, the beef was very tender and a really nice flavour and worked as a whole bite.

BurgurGrill is 100% Halal, and the beef is from their family run butchers so they can trace its steps all the way back which is really good!

  • Value For Money : n/a tonight

Sweet Potato Fries : £N/A tonight (Normally £2.50)

I have really started to enjoy Sweet Potato Fries more then normal fries, but it depends where you go as some can be just so so or very nice…..so I had to see how they did them here.

WOW!!!! ok I have to say these are the nicest sweet potato fries I have had!!! the flavour was good, they were just crispy enough and mmmm perfect!!!!

BBQ Chicken Wings : £N/A tonight (Normally £5.00 for 6 wings)

Since it was the launch night they were giving free wings with every order, lucky I had a small lunch with all this food.

These were very good, I loved the sauce it had just a slight kick and packed a lot of flavour.

Nachos : £N/A tonight (Normally £4.50)

These were very nice, the cheese was tasty and the salsa and as a whole very very good.

Charcoals Peri Peri Takeaway (Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Charcoals Peri Peri asked if I would like to try some of their food for tonights meal.

I was actually look at their menu a few days before they contacted me, so it was perfect timing.

I then found out that Muhammad Sultan also manages Charcoals Peri Peri, if you don’t know Muhammad Sultan he works in Glasgows Charcoals Indian restaurant, he does amazing charity work and he is a really really nice guy and I consider him a friend.

What to order?

As I said I had actually had a look at their menu a few days prior to them contacting me, and I liked what I saw but couldnt decided.

So now I sat down and had a good think and this is what I ordered.

Charcoals Chicken Wings⁣

I opened the container and wow the amazing smell hit me, and then it was photos and dig in.

The chicken was nice and tender, and the flavour was very very nice.

⁣Gourmet beef burger⁣

I have not had a burger for a while, its mostly been chicken for the past few days for me so I was looking forward to this.

This was very nice, the flavour of the whole burger was really good.

This along with the chips was very nice.

I did add some extra sauce to my burger, but thats just a personal preference.

⁣Poppin Chicken ⁣

As soon as I opened the container mmmm they looked amazing and mmmm smelled amazing to.

Now these were so so good!!! the chicken was tender and the crispy batter had a great flavour. I could easily become addicted to these.

These were my favourite from my whole meal, and as I am typing this review I want them again 🙂

⁣Classic Peri Peri chicken (whole chicken)

Now this was a big bird!

Just like the chicken wings these had the same great flavour and also again very tender and succulent chicken.

⁣⁣Chips and Cheese⁣

A classic and splits a lot of people, some like it and others say nope.

For me chips and cheese is always a winner, the chips were nice and the melted cheese over them was perfect.

⁣Aloo paratha

Just like naan Aloo Paratha’s are becoming a new fav, and I have even made a few at home (but not as good as the restaurants…yet)

This was very nice, perfectly cooked and had a nice flavour mixed with a very small kick.

So good and mega moreish!

Overall :

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

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Charcoals Peri Peri and Muhammad Sultan for tonights meal.

I was soooo full after all this, but I enjoyed every bite from start to finish. The flavours of every dish were perfect, cooked perfect and thoroughly enjoyed every dish.

As I said my fav from tonight was those Poppin Chicken, these were super addictive I am definatly going to get these again!!!!

I have no issues recommending Charcoals Peri Peri, from ordering to delivery to the food everything was very tasty and I enjoyed it.
