Oak Tree Inn (Balmaha, Loch Lomond) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I love going a wee drive every now and then, long or closer to home.

Today I decided to take a random drive to Balmaha and see what it was like there, and I spotted The Oak Tree Inn on arrival so I popped in for some lunch.

The Food

I fancied trying a burger as I have not had one in a long time, and this one sounded good.

Bacon Bad Boy Beef Burger £13.75
Cheese, smoked streaky bacon & BBQ sauce

On arrival visually this looked really good, and so did the chips.

I started with the chips and WOW, perfectly pre salted and tasted REALLY good!

Now for the burger…I took a big bite…

YUMM!!! this was very tasty! The flavour of the burger meat was really nice, and it was perfectly cooked and juicy.

The whole bite was great flavours and IU really enjoyed every bite.

I will try another burger the next time I visit here.

Old Keswickian Fish and Chips Restaurant (Keswick, Cumbrea) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Today I felt like going a wee drive, and I choose Keswick which is only just over a 2 hour drive away from Glasgow plus its somewhere I have never seen yet.

On arrival it was a mixed day weather wise, rain dry rain etc but I heard back in Glasgow it was much much worse so I think I got the better weather.

I didn’t know anywhere here but I choose here to have my dinner in.

The Food

Smoked Haddock, Mozzarella & Spring Onion Fishcake £4.40

This sounded very nice so I had to go for it, as I do love a good fishcake.

Presentation was very nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig right in.

The coating was nice and crispy, and the insides perfectly cooked and very YUM!

This was a perfect sized portion for a starter.

Chicken Burger & Chips £6.10

I had no clue what to order for my main, so I opted for the classic chicken burger.

I also added a slice of cheese and some mayonnaise.

Lets start with the chips, these did not need any salt and had a great flavour and nice crunch to them….and there was loads!

The chicken burger was very nice, and very filling and had a nice flavour to it.

This was a very filling main and great value for money.

I am glad I chose here as everything was really nice, and the service and atmosphere was great.

Tribeca (Glasgow) : Review

Tribeca
102 Dumbarton Road
Glasgow G11 6NX

V: 28th July 2019. T: 0141 334 7457. W: www.tribecadiner.com


Today I was out walking and felt like a burger, and Tribeca was only 1min walk away from when my stomach started to say “feed me” so in I went.

The Food…

Extra Toppings :

  • CANDIED BACON 1.50
  • CHORIZO 95p
  • SMOKED JACK CHEESE 95p
  • CHIPOTLE MAYO 50p

So as you can see from above I added more toppings to my burger, and got some special fries.

The burger was really nice, and I loved the flavours of everything I added. If you even take away all the toppings a good burger for £5 thats great value.

The chips were very nice, and I liked the balsamic and mayo combo….it could have done with just a little more of both over it but thats a personal opinion.

Presentation : 4
Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Value for Money : 5

Overall

I am glad I came back and tried something different, and I really enjoyed my burger. I saw that they were changing their menu soon (possibly changed at time of posting this) so I will go back again at some point and see what its like.
