Suggestions for Glasgow and Stirling

montymh Jul 5, 2011 06:14 AM

We will be in Glasgow for three days staying at the Alexander Thomson on Argyll Street. I am looking for suggestions for restaurants near our hotel or easy to get to without a car and near the Riverside Museum. We will also be in Stirling for a day (without a car) so would love suggestions for eating places near the train station. My first choice of cuisine for these places would be Scottish food or gastropubs, but I am open to all suggestions. I'm not really looking for fancy places, since we are with two teenagers, but price is secondary to delicious food. Thanks always.

    I can't vouch for any of these (maybe www.tripadvisor can help), but this page might be useful for Stirling.

      There are some renowned Scottish restaurants in the West End not far from the museum. Here: http://twofatladiesrestaurant.com/westend focuses on Scottish seafood. Supposed to be good but I haven't been. I have been to a couple of great Indian places in the same area, here: http://www.motherindiaglasgow.co.uk/index.php?action=cms.argylest and here: http://www.weecurryshopglasgow.co.uk/index.php?action=cms.byresroad

      In Stirling this place has been recommended to me: http://www.thejunkrooms.co.uk/

        Two fat ladies is very good been a few times to a couple of their locations, as is the Sisters restaurant - been to both Jordanhill and West End locations.
        I have had a good meal at fanny trollope's bistro on Argyll street a few years ago
        Stravaigin used to be pretty decent - not been in a while
        Hope this helps somewhat
