Food Review: No 10 Hotel, Glasgow

Almost a perfect 10! This was our second visit to Number 10, but I wonder how many people in the area actually know it's here, or know that it isn't just for weddings or tourists staying over.  It's located at the Crosshill-end of the beautiful Queen's Drive, less than a 5 minute walk from Crosshill

Food Review: Nando’s, Silverburn, Glasgow

Is Nando's still..."cheeky"? Mr C popped along to Nando's at Silverburn, Pollok, in Glasgow's southside for a quick bite to eat before going to the cinema. We arrived at the restaurant about 5.30pm.
