So since my last visit in 2017, I decided to pop back into the Swan and get some food as it was again another lovely day.

The Food…

I was happy to see that basically, you can get practically anything! and I really mean that. The menu has a vast choice, so you will always find something you like.

Main Course

Chicken Burger & Chips £7.75

This was a nice burger and excellent value for money as there were two chicken burgers between the buns.

The chips were nice and many of them as you see, but I needed to add some salt (this is more a personal taste thing)

One Cove Road Cafe Bistro (Gourock, Scotland): Review

IMG_1715.jpg

1 Cove Road
Gourock PA19 1RS

V: 24th June 2018      T:  01475 637 336  W: www.onecoveroad.co.uk

Child-Friendly: Yes (well-behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card     WIFI: Yes


I was very kindly asked by One Cove Road if I would like to visit them and have a brunch. When I saw it was in Gourock, I had to research what the best way to get there was before I could accept. Please remember my review is 100% honest, and not influenced in any way just because it was free.

After a little Googling, I found I could get the train from Glasgow Central to Gourock but get off at the second last stop (Fort Matilda) and from there it was only a 10 min walk which was perfect so I accepted the invite.

The walk from the train station to One Cove Road, was very nice as you have an amazing view of the sea and the surroundings.

Inside was nicely decorated, with a black and white theme. Even the staff’s uniforms were black and white, which was a very nice touch and looked very smart.

 

The Food…

Full Scottish £8.95 (N/A Today)
Two slices of bacon, square slice sausage, black pudding & haggis, fried egg, potato scone, mushrooms & tomatoes

I was very hungry so I thought let’s get the full breakfast……

First impressions were this was a good portion, and smelled really good….now it was time to taste.

Everything was perfectly cooked, and mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm the sausage was really!!!! good. It had the thickness of a burger but the flavour was mmmm this was the best sausage I have had in a long time.

Overall this was very filling, and I enjoyed every mouthful and as you guess LOVED the sausage. I would visit again just to have the sausage 🙂

Overall

Firstly I would like to thank One Cove Road for the invite, I had a lovely visit and a lovely day in Gourock.

The staff were all very friendly, and very helpful with my visit today.

I would recommend One Cove Road to anyone that takes a visit to Gourock, you can either sit in or take away. If you take away you can enjoy a lovely walk, with a lovely view.

Check it out you won’t be disappointed, and try the sausage!!!!

See you again 🙂

I stay in Scotland and never really seen what it has to offer, so today I took a day trip to Millport. I have never been to so I wanted to talk a walk around and see the island. Part of this trip, we found a message in a bottle…
