An open and welcoming space where you can dine and drink in contemporary style at reasonable prices

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Small plates dining caters to the contemporary love of sharing, tasting and grazing and is well suited to a pre-theatre meal or an extended evening of snacking, chatting and drinking. The new menu at the Tron Bar and Kitchen designed by the head chef caters for a wide range of tastes and preferences. Into the mix add incredibly reasonable prices, an informal setting, outstanding events and performances and an extended children’s licence and you have a venue with endless appeal. Soups are prepared daily and served with interesting sandwiches at lunchtime. However, inventive small plates such as the luscious Ayrshire chicken croquettes served with a flavoursome cock-a-leekie pearl barley risotto or the zingy spiced lentil potato cakes with kale slaw and tomato and chilli chutney are the real winners. Desserts include toffee apple with a sea salt and thyme caramel parfait and a pecan crumble or the cake of the day accompanied by good coffee. Of further interest is the Scottish craft gin menu and a new range of Thistly Cross organic ciders.
