Previously we had enjoyed a lunch at the West Brewery on Glasgow Green. . However it is a mile or so walk from High Street Station. So on our latest visit to the city, we booked a table for lunch at West on the Corner, appropriately in Glasgow’s West End.
The food was excellent and pleasantly served. I had the German snack: pickled red cabbage, pickled baby cucumber, wild boar fennel and red wine salami, Black Forest ham, Applewood smoked Cheddar, obazda and figs, served with rye bread. My companions both chose flaked hot smoked salmon salad, potato, peas, lambs leaf with zingy lemon dressing. We all cleared our plates with relish. To drink I started with a glass of St. Mungo, described as a hybrid between Bavarian Helles and north German pils I then had a litre of Munich Red which really complemented my food.
No doubt due to its owner, Petra Wetzel, West on the Corner is very female friendly with large clear glass windows. My wife really appreciated this civilised style. However we were surprised to find that there were few other lunchtime customers. It seems that the pub is much more busy in the evenings.
