With Under the Grill I haven’t set out to educate food lovers in the West of Scotland, it’s simply an honest comment on my eating out experiences which cover restaurants in Glasgow and Ayrshire with a few geographical wild cards flung in for good measure. I don’t pad out reviews with meaningless pics and prefer to concentrate on hard facts about the quality of the food in relation to whats being charged and the overall experience
I’ve tried to restrict reviews to places I have visited in the last eighteen months as you will be well aware a lot can change in eighteen minutes in any culinary establishment! Your comments and recommendations would be most welcome.

A Christmas Cracker!
This has to be the ultimate present for the carnivore in your life if you live in Glasgow or the West of Scotland. 29 the Grill Room in Royal Exchange Square are offering the ultimate pressie which can last up to a full year consisting of ten visits to the restaurant to try every cut of beef you could imagine including the elusive Spider Steak, a cut normally reserved by the Butcher for himself!
Its not cheap at £225 however for that very unusual present for the man or woman that has everything……. this may just fit the bill!!!!
