This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Glasgow’s uncanny ability to re-invent itself is perfectly illustrated in the Tron building and its 500 years of history. It is now a modern and vibrant cultural space but signs of its past are much in evidence, from the original steeple itself to the restored Victorian bar/restaurant. There is a full menu at lunch and early evening or a soup and sandwich deal is an inviting option, but it’s later on when the ambience is at its best with the buzz ahead of a live show contrasting with the relaxed vibe of the three eating and drinking spaces. Main courses offer quite traditional bar/pub food (and chips with almost everything) such as nachos, gammon steak and burgers but a couple of pleasant surprises are to be found too: the courgette, red onion and parmesan frittata is served with rocket, as a healthier option, and the chickpea, coconut and potato curry is a modestly sized but moreish dish, served with rice and a few triangles of naan.
