Recently I visited Munro’s, located just a few minutes from Glasgow city centre on Great Western Road, for a complimentary meal. Munro’s describe themselves as the “Home of Craft Beer in the West End”, but we all know I was in it for the food. Because of it’s location, the restaurant/ bar has great transport links and is just a stones throw from most of the city’s trendiest bars and clubs.
The interiors are very rustic and eclectic, but very much in the way that bars are rebranding themselves to be. The tiles behind the bar, wooden tables and makeshift stools all added to a very old fashioned feel to the restaurant whilst retaining a luxurious, hipster element to it. The décor combined tartans, leathers and woods to give an authentically Scottish feel whilst the large windows that framed the outer walls let plenty of natural light flood in.
My favourite thing about the food and the other items on the menu was that they were hearty, pub style foods but the restaurant had elevated these often seen meals and elevated them into quality dishes. By using locally sourced produce and blending Scottish pub food with different cooking styles such as Mexican and Italian, Munro’s brings a new level of quality to pub lunching in Glasgow.
I visited for lunch, but their menu is an all day one and served from 12pm until late. The menu is concise and simple, with enough options so satisfy plenty of palates. . . .
