Strathaven Hotel Family Dinner (Strathaven) : Review

V: 1st August 2020


Today we decided to go visit the Stathhaven Hotel for a late lunch come dinner.

We have been there many times before, mostly for Christmas dinner so it was going to be nice to come and try it outside the festive season.

Looking Around

Today we were sitting in another area, and it looked really nice!!

We were in the bar area, but at the back in our own wee are which was really good as it was very private and had a really nice relaxing feel.

The Food

As I said most of the times we come are for our family Christmas dinner, and the food has always been nice.

So I couldn’t wait to try todays menu.

Appetiser

Crispy Sweet Potato £6.00
truffle oil, coconut yogurt, spiced pumpkin seeds

I love sweet potato, and sweet potato chips so I couldnt wait to see how this tasted.

Visually this looked really nice, as you can see from the picture….it smelled nice so it was now time to dig in.

All the flavours came through with every mouthful, this was so good and I loved the little aftertaste of the truffle oil mmmm this was a great choice and one I would have again.

Main Course :

Strathaven Ale Crispy Beer Battered Haddock £13.00
skinny fries, pea purée, tarter sauce

On arrival I thought I ordered Jaws, this fish was massive!

I started with the fries, and I am so glad it was skinny fries as they are my fav! These fries were perfectly cooked, and had just the right amount of salt already on them.

The fish had a nice coating of batter, and tasted so so good.

Unfortunately I had to leave around half the fish as I was so full! if I had known it was this big I would have skipped my starter.

Visit Overall :

Just like the previous visits the staff have always welcomed us, they are very friendly and the service has always been really good.

The food today was really good, and I will be coming back to try other dishes.

Tuck Shakk – Taste of India Lunch (Glasgow, West End) : Review


As you previously have seen I was gifted my lunch last time from Tuck Shakk, but this time round we ordered and the theme of this one was Indian.

Todays menu

The food

As you can see from the above photos this was a big lunch, but a very very nice and tasty one.

The flavours were all very nice, and not super spicy it had a nice kick to it.

I really liked today lunch, the veggie biryani for me was my fav which I was shocked as if you know me am not Mr Veggie.

Just like the last time, again after eating all this I felt full but not bloated so I was very happy.

Desert :

Again the guys at Tuck Shakk included this for us….

How nice was that 🙂

This was a very nice ending to our meal, and was very nice.

Overall :

Another nice lunch from the guys at Tuck Shakk, and I really enjoyed it from start to finish.

My Tuck Shakk Lunch (Glasgow, West End) : Review

Gifted


I was recently gifted my lunch from Tuck Shakk, and here is what I thought.

What I ordered

1 x Chicken Burger with Buffalo Sauce
1 x Chicken Burger with Cajun Sauce
2 x Fries

The fries

Lets start with the fries, these were very nice and thin which I really like.

I am a big fan of thin fries, but overall very nice.

The Burgers

Both burgers were chicken burgers, and had lettuce, white onion, tomato and the sauce.

I found the burger to be very fresh, and tasty and the batter had a nice crunch to it.

The one thing I really liked was that after it, I didn’t feel bloated I felt full but not too full which I really liked.

I would have these again, and recommend them.

Desert :

Actually yes, the guys at Tuck Shakk included this for us….

How nice was that 🙂

These were also home made, and had a nice soft texture and really nice flavour. Both were gone just as fast as they were opened lol 🙂

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 thank you to Tuk Shakk for gifting me and my fiancee lunch, we really enjoyed it and will definitely be ordering more soon.

As always I only do honest reviews, and I would recommend the burgers so visit their instagram account and send them a wee message 🙂
