Opened at the end of June, Brodies is a bar restaurant on Pollokshaws Road in Strathbungo.
Formerly Shimla Pinks, the new venture sells an impressive 32 Scottish craft beers. An eclectic food menu ranges from halloumi skewers and French onion soup to cheesecake and beef carpaccio.
The design of Brodies is fun. The bar is made from Glenfiddich cask staves while the doors come from an old church in Kilpatrick. Look out for the gargoyle’s head.
We hear that there may be a beer garden taking shape.
Glasgow food news: The Dug 'n' Duck
Meanwhile, in Millerston, The Dug ‘n’ Duck has replaced the New Inn on Avenue End Road.
Burgers, roasts, sharing platters, curries and various takes on dirty fries are among the items on offer on the menu.
As the name suggests, the new venture is dog-friendly. Outside seating is available for mutts and their owners who want to take a little sunshine along with their ale.
DJs and live music add to The Dug ‘n’ Duck’s appeal at weekends.
