Sundays don’t come much better than when the sun is shining and you are meeting friends for an early Sunday dinner, even better when your pooch can come along too 🐶

West Brewery on the Green provides a relaxing dog-friendly environment. Arriving at the restaurant the high ceiling and the spacious warehouse feel are obvious features on the inside. Outside is the beer garden space which is also ideal when it’s sunny. The menu had a German theme, offering items such as Schnitzel, Sausages, and Beer.

We both indulged in two courses – a starter and a main. 💁🏻‍♀️ – Starter was Asparagus wrapped in Ham with Poached Egg and Hollandaise Sauce. I thought this dish was tasty but could have been better seasoned. For my main I had Nurnberger – small Bavarian sausages served with spring onion mash, gravy, and sauerkraut. It was comfort food but nothing spectacular – I was expecting a big German sausage but this time I was sadly disappointed with 6 skinny willie winkies. It turns out size does matter 😉

🙋🏼‍♂️- Starter was Sweet Potato Bon Bons. I felt it was nice but had an average and not very interesting flavour. For my main, I asked the waitress to be “blown away” so she suggested one of the most popular dishes, German Schnitzel. In my opinion a Turkey escalope, with a sauce that was going to wow me. I was so disappointed as it consisted of what looked like frozen made chips as the side, and the sauce I had to taste a few times before I got used to it (a thick mushroom sauce). If you like Mushrooms then the sauce is nice but it wasn’t the wow dish I was looking for, very ordinary.

Service was friendly from the offset and the atmosphere is great as you can see lots of families out for Sunday dinner with their dogs. The interior and exterior are both to a high standard and has to be said this is also one of the only decent beer gardens in and around the centre of Glasgow. For us though..the food is sub-par. Some if not many items clearly from frozen and not worth the price. We will, however, be back for drinks in the Summer Beer Garden. @westonthegreen
