Scottish beef under Central Station
Tucked away under Glasgow’s Central Station and entering via the station’s Gordon Street entrance, Alston Bar & Beef is an atmospheric Scottish steak restaurant and gin bar. Built over the site of the 19th century Alston Street, the restaurant has a quirky decor that features tiled vaults, huge mirrors and lights made with decanters. The bar offers a good selection of intriguing cocktails along with some 50 gins, around a dozen of which are Scottish.
Locally sourced Tweed Valley beef
With dishes like the smoked chicken, chilli & lime salad and the peanut crusted cod on the menu, diners are by no means limited to beef. However, steak take pride of place at Alston Bar & Beef. A local, family-run butcher supplies the restaurant with specially selected Tweed Valley beef from sustainable farms. Along with their 500g chateaubriand or 1kg porterhouse steaks to share, the beef is available as rump, fillet, sirloin, rib eye and Cote de Boeuf.
Classic sauces, glazed chorizo & pumpkin seeds and beer battered onions are offered as accompaniments along with sides such as jalapeño mac ‘n’ cheese, salad and, of course, double cooked truffle & Parmesan chips.
