Whether the sun is shining or not there are loads of places in Glasgow to satisfy your BBQ urge.  City Centre, East End , West End and Southside are all covered in our guide to the best places for BBQ in Glasgow.


Cottier’s is one of the most stunning places in Glasgow for a drink and its a great place to visit whatever the weather.  A roaring fire in winter and BBQ area outside in the summer. This West End favourite is worth a trip for us soo’siders.

The Raven

The Raven  is filled with beer, smoked food and sport.  Unfortunately no beer garden to soak up the sun and eat you BBQ food, however inside is comfy and the range of beer and delicious food will keep you happy.

Buddy’s Bar and Grill

The one that started it all – well, the second one – it started out as a takeaway along the road on Skirving Street. Buddy’s have a 60-seater restaurant.  A huge selection of ribs, burgers, pulled pork, as well as brisket and poutine on the menu.
