Glaschu

The Royal Exchange Square restaurant, based in the Western Club building, has become a firm favourite with diners looking for high-quality business lunches and fine dining, since it opened its doors in 2020.

The three-course festive menu features starters like the baked warm blue cheesecake, made with a parmesan and toasted seed based, topped with pickle beetroot and truffle honey. For mains, the classic Roasted Turkey Roulade, made with sage and onion stuffing, is accompanied by duck fat roasted potatoes, Brussels sprouts, pigs in blankets, honey glazed carrots, turkey jus and cranberry sauce. The premium turkey breast is wrapped in prosciutto ham to keep it moist.

Gōst

Located on Bothwell Street, Gōst opened its doors in March, with the new all-day venue offering prime cuts of beef and expertly grilled fish.

The new addition to the heart of Glasgow city centre’s dining scene has a mouth-watering menu, carefully crafted by Chef John Molloy, featuring snacks and starters from the bread and whipped beef butter to roast Orkney scallops. However, the star and stand-out is clearly the UK ex- dairy prime rib.

The three-course festive menu features starters like the caramelised carrot soup, which is garnished with cumin, chive, EVOO and diced ginger.
