The Pines, Crookston Road, Glasgow – Jan 2011

One of the Sizzler chain of bars/restaurants, The Pines is located near to Ross Hall  Hospital on Crookston Road.

A cheap two meals for £5  deal pulled us in for a visit.   Cheeseburger and Chips and  Chicken Breast and Chips were ordered as well as a splurge of pudding as we were feeling like a pair of starvers.
Both dinners were your usual cheap pub grub fare, nothing brilliant but nothing bad – just of that filling a need standard, nothing to go out your way for.

(apologies for the colouring of the picture, bad mobile!)

Afters consisted of a Toffee, Apple and Cinamon Meltdown (£2.99) which was very festive tasting.  Thumbs up.  Although it did seem very lonely swimming in a dinner plate of custard.

Treacle Pudding and Custard (£2.59) also tasted very good and again on a dinner plate full of custard.

Both courses did their job of filling a belly, but at the School dinners end of the culinary wedge.

The toilets were grubby and in need of some tlc.  Although this could be due to the sign below!
