An intimate restaurant experience housed in one of Glasgow's most distinctive creative spaces.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Inside this city landmark, dating back to 1795 – though parts, including the clock tower are much older – neo-modern lighting and clever use of glass and mirrors makes the versatile spaces of the Tron Theatre seem even bigger, with the restaurant area tucked unobtrusively between the bar and theatre venue. The pre-theatre menu offers an abundant choice of bar favourites, including burgers and fishcakes, but it is a salmon and chorizo dish laced with punchy tomato flavours which stands out; the salmon meltingly soft. Always a creative hub for artists in the city, the Tron has expanded its programme by adopting several groups once housed in the much-missed Arches, including the community choir and poetry nights.

  • High point: Transition from event space to dining area feels natural
  • Low point: Burgers can be on the lean side

The menu, although refreshingly small, mainly consists of bar food standards. There are some exceptions and the spiced lentil daal is a tasty wholesome start. The goat’s cheese fritter is meltingly good with a rich fig, apple and chilli chutney on the side. Mains include burgers, a caesar salad, a cheese baguette and a tasty rib eye steak which was a little on the slim and small side. The stand out main is battered haddock and chips. The fish is fresh and well cooked and although, it’s not an unusual sight on a menu, very few places do it this well. Desserts are not terribly exciting, the warm chocolate brownie is very rich and sweet and the tablet ice cream sundae is good but doesn't really exhibit much in the way of cooking skills, despite the fact it was topped with handmade shortbread crumble. Given that there’s a full bar service, there’s a decent range of wines available by the glass.
