A vegan bar-restaurant popular with musicians, veggies and food-lovers alike.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The sign of a really good vegan restaurant is not just its appeal to those who have chosen a meat-free existence, but the way it wins round those that haven't. The 13th Note attracts food fans (carnivores included), musos and those in pursuit of a mid-week pint in comfortable surroundings alike. Thanks to its basement gig space, where bands of the louder variety perform nightly, you can be sure that the restaurant and bar upstairs are always filled with an interesting mix of punters. The Note’s menu excels in the finer things in life – carbs and cheese – including the exotic-sounding Lebanese potato harra, or spicy roast potatoes. Its famous chips, cut from Ayrshire tatties and dusted in rosemary salt were born to be eaten with a halloumi and red pepper kebab – takeaway food reimagined and upgraded. No doner-induced guilt the next morning comes as a welcome bonus.

  • High point: Imaginative vegetarian food
  • Low point: Curry could do with fuller flavour
  • Notable dish: Red pepper and halloumi kebab
  • Average price: £13 (set lunch); £13 (dinner)
