I had cullen skink – potato, leek, smoked haddock and a soft boiled quail’s egg, on a bed of delicious creamy and foamy soup. Wonderfully light and creamy.
This was followed by sea bream, on a tower of fishy mash, served with shallots and a delicious sauce. I alwasy seem to order fish when I’m out, as Husband is not a fan. And this sea bream and mash was a worthy treat.
We had creamed spinach and twice fried chips on the side – both were utterly divine. The spinach was the most wonderful I think I have ever tasted, and the chips were – due to the twice frying – utterly naughty.
The bar and dining room themselves were very inviting – comfortable and beautifully decorated. The seats in the hotel are upholstered in tweed – a fabulous idea – and the modern interpretation of the chandelier is something to behold – a sparkly, fringed experience.
The Market Menu is very reasonably priced and offers a tempting taste of the excellent food at this very fine establishment. I can heartily recommend the Blythswood Square Hotel and will certainly be returning.
