On Helen Place, off Busby Road, it promises to be a ‘homely, traditional Scottish bar and restaurant located within Clarkston. Many of the dishes on our menus are modern versions of those traditional homemade Scottish dishes you all know and love’.
Open from breakfast through lunch to dinner, it certainly has prices which we could grow to love very quickly. For example, the Scottish breakfast – fried egg, bacon, tattie scone, grilled tomato, black pudding, square sausage & mushrooms – is £3.
There is a larger version for £6 but the above looks pretty filling from where we are standing.
A two course lunch could be yours for £8.99. Beer-battered haddock; mac ‘n’ cheese, mushroom Stroganoff and an 8oz burger are all on the menu.
Suref ‘n’ turf
In the evenings, diners can push the boat out into deeper financial waters. The whole lobster and rib-eye surf ‘n’ turf is £35 or you could order the sirloin steak for £19.
Less extravagant options include the steak and ale pie, haggis or chicken Balmoral – all of which hover just above or below a tenner.
Sunday roast with all the trimmings is £9.95.
The 5pm Dining blog wishes The Stables every success.
Miller and Carter
Not so far away, in Newton Mearns to be exact, Miller and Carter have opened another branch of their steakhouse chain.
The new venue is on the Stewarton Road. It joins their two other Scottish venues: St Vincent Street in Glasgow city centre and Cramond Brig on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
We also understand that Chelsea Market on Argyle Street is soon to make a glam entrance on the increasingly action-packed Finnieston scene.
