Alston Bar & Beef Ratings and Reviews
First time to Alston Bar & Beef. We had the 3 course set menu which was unbelievable value for money and runs until 6.30pm. Selection of gins was super and draught beer and IPAs were good. Friendly quick service and we were not rushed of our table which seems to happening more in restaurants. Food was delicious, beautifully cooked and perfect portion sizes. My three courses were trout, steak then chocolate brownie. We (4) had a super time and will be back, highly recommend.
Visited the alston numerous times wether its been for a few drinks or a meal and it never fails to impress me. My recent visit was for my friends birthday and the staff made it very special for her by giving us both complimentary prosecco and also singing happy birthday. Food is 100% worth the price. Overall a lovely experience, as always.
Outstanding!! Came across Alston when looking for somewhere for my boyfriend and I to enjoy some afternoon cocktails on his birthday. We originally only came for drinks however ended up ordering the lunch menu as it looked good value for money and certainly did not disappoint. We were both blown away with the food. Initially I believe there was mix up with our drinks as my starter arrived before our drinks did 15mins after being seated however this was kindly rectified when we received our bill as we were not charged for them due to the wait.
I found this incredibly kind and very well done as the restaurant and bar were both incredibly busy and most other places would have ignored this fact as I never mentioned it.
The food was incredible. We are big fans of Barolo grill and have been for years but Alston bar have knocked every other steak house out the park! We will definetley be back and are already planning our next trip to town.
Thankyou so much for our delicious meal and fantastic service. A new fave!
I took my son here before the Scotland game. We had the 3 course for £16 deal which was excellent value for money. The food was fantastic we both had the pâté for starter and the fillet steak ciabatta for mains. I had the poached pear for dessert and joe had the chocolate brownie. This was ideal for a quick bite before the match with a couple of drinks.
We came here as part of a weekend away for my husband's 30th birthday. This place is a hidden gem! Definitely didn't disappoint! The setting and lighting created a fab atmosphere and the staff were all very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The list of Gin and various mixers available was pretty impressive (we may have tried a few!) and the food was out of this world! We had the chataubriand and it was gorgeous. It may seem a little pricey but it's worth every single penny. We'll definitely visit again if we're ever back in Glasgow! 10/10
Lovely hidden gem, walked past this place must have been 100 times before realising it was there!
Whilst browsing the net for a good steak house in the city centre we came across the menu and decided to give it try and we didn’t regret it.
Whilst certainly not on the cheap side; we decided to give it ago as a little treat to ourselves on date night / belated birthday celebrations just the two of us.
We weren’t disappointed, the atmosphere is very cool, very urban, modern, contemporary, drinks list is vast if not slightly expensive but the food was worth it.
Looking at around £30 for a steak (roughly) we weren’t disappointed, the meat was some of the highest quality we have ever had and we had barely left the restaurant before we were recommending this place to our friends.
We will 100% be back…once weve saved up a bit…!!!!
My partner and I doubled date with friends for dinner where we ordered 4 steaks. They were cooked perfectly and the whole meal was excellent with first class service from the waitress. The restaurant and bar area had a fantastic atmosphere which we enjoyed over cocktails and wine.
Will certainly be back & would highly recommend it.
