Bong! Bong! Bong! Here is all the latest Glasgow food news.

First up, congratulations to all the winners at the Food Awards Scotland which took place in Glasgow earlier this week.

In particular, congrats are due to the much loved Battlefield Rest in Glasgow’s Southside.

The Battlefield Road Italian won the Restaurant of the Year Glasgow prize.

It is a firm favourite with 5pm customers and runs a number of popular offers.

For example, book in today and two people can have two courses on the pre-theatre menu plus a bottle of wine to share for £35 total.

Glasgow food news: Bilson Eleven

We are also delighted to announce that Bilson Eleven in Glasgow’s East End is now available to book via 5pm Dining.

Hailed as one of Glasgow’s most exciting new restaurants when it launched last year, the dining room is a converted drawing room in a 19th century townhouse on Annfield Place.

The kitchen specialises in multi-course tasting menus that showcase the best of Scotland’s natural, seasonal larder.

Book in via 5pm Dining and you can look forward to a seven course tasting menu plus a perfect serve gin for £60 a head.

Vegan Connections

While Scotland’s best beef, seafood and lamb feature regularly on the menu at Bilson Eleven, there are more plant-based pleasures to be had this weekend at The Briggait.

The former fishmarket turned event space and artists’ studios will play host to Vegan Connections on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August.

Market traders will be serving up some of the UK’s finest vegan food and drink from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on the Sunday.

Tickets from here.

Naturally, 5pm Dining has no shortage of restaurants offering vegan and veggie options.

Another option for this weekend is the Beer Makes Glasgow festival which starts on Friday in Drygate.

We blogged about it in more detail at the beginning of August.

Here’s a quick recap:

There will be four sessions over three days with fifteen breweries showcasing 60+ beers.

DJs, live music and 60+ beers

The full brewery/beer list has yet to be announced but top teams such as Up Front Brewing, Dead End Brewing, Gallus Brewing and Fyne Ales are already signed up.

There will be DJs, live music, reggae and food from Drygate’s beer hall. With tongue firmly in cheek, organisers also promise to ‘pour beer and deliver poor to middling chat’.

Tickets from here.

All profits from ticket sales will go to Drumchapel Food Bank.
