favourite bars restaurants for meals

Recommended Posts

I used to frequent the Anchor in Granton Edinburgh. Dog friendly but my God it'd make The Grill look high class. A truly wild pub.

I think this is extremely high up on the criteria for a good pub. Does anyone know of any shite pubs that allow dogs in? I'm yet to find one.

i forget the name of one in Praia da Luz in the Algarve, Portugal that's good but they don't allow children.

 

Could it have been Chaplins?

I stayed in Praia about 3 years ago and that one became an instant favourite. Nice lady that ran the place too. I remember I asked if she had wifi - she said no, but she was able to tell me that the crappy Indian joint next door did have and she kindly provided the password for it!

All pubs that let dogs in are shite.

All suppers that contain mushrooms are shite.

The grill is the worst pub in Perth by some distance, most normal people avoid it. If you like a pub with prostitutes, travellers, scumbags, druggies, transgenders and general lowlifes it's the place for you. I like it because no c**t bothers you, they all have other things to worry about :lol:
 


What’s the address?

Just ask someone when in Perth, they'll likely look disgusted while pointing you In the right direction. Or you could just google it.

Couple of quite high profile characters drinking in the Anchor.

Whistlefield Inn near Dunoon and the restaurant at Portavadie Marina are two discoveries in recent times serving very dece scran.

The ribeye steak from the Kailyard at Dunblane Hydro is probably the tastiest steak I’ve ever eaten though.

Gangsters I'm guessing? Been a long while since I've been there mind you. Used to be the sort of place where you'd go for a drink and could come out with a handgun if you wanted.

Some people in there have had national media coverage, not just well known locally.

I was in there a few weeks back for the first time in years, it's a really nice wee boozer.

Dumbarton is fairly shite for pubs and restaurants IMO, I only ever really "eat out" at the Abottsford Hotel or the Glencairn, but neither are particularly fancy. There's a wee place in the High Street called the Grill on the Bridge which has excellent food, but it's opening hours are limited and it's a BYOB effort.

Shitey weatherspooons type pubs everywhere in the high street which I avoid whenever I can. I prefer the "old man boozer" so the Stags Head or the Waverly (run by Scottish football Icon Drew Busby) are the best I'd say.

The Dining Room in West Bridgend (when it actually opens) is very good. I've heard the Indian in the High Street is good but I've never been. The Abbotsford is good again after going quite badly downhill for a couple of years.

Still not the worst pub I've been in, the place that's now The Lioness Of Leith?

Absolute shooting gallery filled with junkies, had curtains drawn at all times, twilight at midday. Mad pub. Like Dawn Of The Dead.



Or The Gunner's, that was proper rough.

Roughest one around here is the Spey.
