Downstairs at Stravaigin we try to run a full calendar of events throughout the year. This usually starts with a Burns Brunch in January and carries on all throughout the year. The events are driven by everything from cuisine from particular parts of the world, weird and wonderful wines and spirits, tie ins with local Science and film festivals, to having a dinner in honour of a whole pig. We are always on the lookout for opportunities to try something new and unusual to bring a different experience to our clientele.
‘Stravaig’ meaning ‘to wander’ encompasses our ‘Think Global, Eat Local’ ethos perfectly. So wander off the beaten path into either the street level cafe bar or the downstairs restaurant where you’ll find menus showcasing Scottish produce that isn’t tethered to its roots.
Standing strong for over Twenty years Stravaigin has grown to become a trusted local icon where great food and a friendly pint go hand in hand. Never one to play it safe, our menu dares to experiment with both flavours and ingredients, from crowdie to crocodile. Our ‘Think Global, Eat Local’ ethos inspires both our menu and vast selection of drinks from around the world. We have enjoyed being at the forefront of the Glasgow food scene since 1994 and look forward to welcoming our customers for years to come.
Since 1994 Stravaigin has strived to encourage and promote culinary curiosity, downstairs in our restaurant you will find an ‘Exotically Scottish’ menu that meanders the world exploring different cuisines, whilst remaining true to Scottish produce. The restaurant provides an intimate environment, the salvage art adorning the walls very much a nod to the upstairs café bar décor, but the feature is the custom mural by local artist Murray Robertson, that celebrates the elements that make Stravaigin so distinctive; nature, travel, culture and wild ingredients.
