It’s wrong to assume that one should look to Glasgow’s city centre for a refined wine bar and restaurant experience. Here in Bishopbriggs, on the fringes of Greater Glasgow, a thriving retail and culinary culture has sprung up around the train station, concentrated along Kirkintilloch Road. The Avenue is one such place, originally functioning as a fully fledged wine bar before opening a restaurant alongside. It’s atmosphere is fun, casual and relaxing with live music events on the weekends suitable for dinners with friends, the whole family or for large special occasions. So for exceptional fare and a carefully curated wine list, book your spot at The Avenue now – you won’t be disappointed.
Located in Bishopbriggs on the outskirts of Glasgow, The Avenue is a spot that’s seriously worth the effort. Established in 2013, The Avenue sold itself for a long time as a wine bar through and through. However, with the opening of the restaurant in 2016, The Avenue is now a jack of all trades when it comes to drinking and dining. What’s better than casual drinks with friends sampling delicious wine and some tapas? Not much, in our opinion, and we love the portobello mushrooms stuffed with goats cheese, caramelised onion and walnut crust, half rack of sticky bbq ribs, king prawns with chorizo, garlic and chilli oil or five spice calamari with side salad, to name just a few.
But it’s not all about small plates and here at The Avenue you can find international dishes from Italian pasta to Indian delicacies, big American burgers to Scottish classics. We recommend the smokey & the bandit that’s brimming with smoked ham hock, mature Scottish cheese and jalapenos, or the housemade lasagna just like nonna used to make. Alternatively, pop in on Sunday for The Avenue’s ever-popular and moreish roast with all the trimmings. So for a relaxing affair, book a table at this Bishopbriggs wine bar and restaurant today. Located on Kirkintilloch Road, it’s easily accessible from the centre of Glasgow meaning there’s no excuse.
The service was terrific the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food choice was brilliant and it tasted delicious. We will definitely be back.
Very welcoming with very nice food. Nice local venue. Staff very helpful. Good food reasonably priced. Nice and accessible with good space to move around.
Lovely food. Great value. Service was slow though. We had to prompt to have order taken and lengthy gaps between courses. Nice ambience though and staff very friendly
Staff lovely. Service excellent. Portion size huge - not really a complaint but just worth knowing . The tables at the front are in a light airy atmosphere. At the back a bit dark and dingy!
We had an excellent evening at The Avenue, Bishopbriggs. The service was very efficient and the staff are all so friendly. The food & drink were excellent! My wife and I visit The Avenue very regularly and we are never let down with the food, service and entertainment, always of a high standard!
We have just moved to Bishopbriggs and had had this restaurant (The Avenue) recommended to us. We chose the £30 deal for two main courses and a bottle of wine. The wine was excellent and my husbands curry dish was good. My chicken dish was flavoursome but cold as was the Irish coffee that I had later. When we asked for desert we were told that the kitchen was closed which we thought was strange. Our excellent waitress however managed to source some ice cream and cheese cake. The meal in itself was good value but the experience somewhat bland. I think this restaurant is banking on its reputation and. could try a little harder
The Avenue has a nice atmosphere. There are tables at the front of the venue and upstairs and through the back, it has a large area with tables and chairs. The food is fantastic, the service is fantastic and the live bands are great!
Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food and very reasonably priced. I am a regular user of The Avenue and have been for some years. There is no loud music. The place is beautifully set out having been refurbished recently.
The Avenue is local to us so we know what to expect. We had really tasty food in a relaxed atmosphere and the staff could not have been any better. They were very accommodating. I would recommend it.
Wasn't expecting The Avenue to be as good as it was. Great service and food at reasonable prices. Good options for both children and adults with good variety. Staff friendly, efficient and courteous. Will definitely return.
