DryGate Brewery NEW Bar Food and Cocktail Menu (Glasgow) : Review


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.


  • 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


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

Harvester (Glasgow): Review

Springfield Quay
Glasgow G5 8NP

V: 3rd June 2019. T: 0141 418 0810. W: www.harvester.co.uk

Here is a place I don’t tend to visit very often, the main reason being I am either never near a Harvester or I tend to find the service poor.

Tonight I was seeing Alladin and decided to take a visit.

The Food…

I wanted to try a few dishes so I opted for the 2 Course Meal Deal which cost £12.99, here is what I ordered.

Main Course



For a starter, this looked good and a nice portion size…

After a few bites it was just OK, for me it needed more cheese. If they layered this better it could be really good but they didn’t so was just ok.

The Beyond Bean Burger


Yes a bean burger shocker, and guess what I didnt really like the flavour.

Adding some sauce to the burger helped, as it gave it better flavour but hmmm not for me.

Overall it was just a ok experience, the only good part was the staff as they were very friendly and helpful tonight.

For me I dont know if I would go back in a hurry but hey I tried it and tried something new which is always good.

Amore (Merchant City, Glasgow) : Review

30 Ingram Street
Glasgow G1 1EZ

V: 2nd June 2018      T:  0141 553 0810  W: www.amoreglasgow.co.uk

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

I was in the mood for some Italian tonight, and I had to go back to Amore as its one of two of my favourite Italian restaurants in Glasgow.

Tonight was so so busy and very loud but this was good as it was a really fun and nice atmosphere.


I decided to go for the menu deal, where I could get 2 or 3 courses for x cost. Today I opted for 2 courses which were £8.95 plus drinks.


Nachos Italiano
Nachos topped with bolognese sauce, melted Fior di Latte cheese, and hot jalapeno peppers


I am a big fan of Nachos, so this sounded interesting and I had to try it.

This smelled very nice on arrival, and I couldn’t wait to start.

This was very nice, to be honest, I think the normal way to do Nachos is better but it was nice to try something different.

Main Course

Chicken Burger Milanese
real breaded chicken with a salad topped with cheese & onion on a bun.


This looked good and tasted good, and was very filling.

It wasn’t the best burger I have had, but it was a really good one.

My only issue with this was, there was very little cheese on it so it kind of made it a little dry. If it had an equal amount of cheese on it, it would have been perfect.

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


Overall I am glad tonight I tried something different, but I think when I come here I will stick with my Spaghetti Carbonara.
