Food and Drink

Glasgow boasts a diverse, innovative and constantly expanding food and drink scene.

With independent bakers, beekeepers, distillers, brewers and coffee roasters, working with some of the most exciting chefs and restaurateurs in the country - Glasgow is packed full of talented people with a passion for good food and drink. 

Glasgow's Larder 

From outstanding seafood and shellfish to unbeatable game and beef, Glasgow's location on Scotland's West Coast offers an abundant source of the best local produce in the world. 

Traditional dishes, regional specialities and local produce like haggis, shortbread, whisky and Cullen skink feature in many of the city's eateries offering a distinct flavour of Scotland.

Keeping it real, serving it well

The city's food and drink is about experience and authenticity.  In Glasgow, that's delivered by our greatest asset - our people. 

As a city which boasts deeps rooted Indian and Pakistani food heritage, not to mention the huge influence of Italian settlers in the city, Glasgow has a food scene as international as many major European capitals. 

The emergence of hip foodie neighbourhoods such as Finnieston near the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in the west end and Strathbungo in the southside, alongside an excellent vegan scene which saw the city crowned "most vegan friendly city" by PETA, have helped to transform the city's dining credentials over the last ten years.  All of which makes Glasgow one of the genuinely exciting places to eat and drink in Europe right now. 

The modern side of the largest city in Scotland is blossoming, with dozens of formerly disused buildings reopening as galleries, bars, shops and restaurants, creating a bustling atmosphere. New York Times
