All our food is locally sourced, using on the highest quality products and prepared fresh, in house at Van Winkle.

We are in a great location, opposite the Barrowland Ballroom. Easy access from the City Centre or the East End.

Don't forget our hidden gem, The Jack Daniels Beer Garden, a great spot to enjoy a beer or two.

We offer a sit in, takeaway and home delivery service.

Really enjoyed this pre gig meal. Excellent chilli cheese burger. Onion rings delicious.
Nice experience
Only downside was bar staff continually throwing empty bottles in the bin. Noise for the sake of it.

The halloumi fries were amazing, best I’ve ever had. I had the monster burger for mains, the burger was brilliant, really nice meat for the patties and the pork was beautiful as well. The chips were a little overdone for my liking but my wife loved them. For me they were just a little bit too greasy. The plate for the burger was tiny as well. Putting such a big burger in a tiny plate made it much more difficult to eat. For comparison, my wife had the cheesesteak and got a full tray, I would have loved a tray 🤣🤣. Overall it was good for a first visit, my only other feedback would be that it was pretty cold . We will be back

Music was a perfect volume. Too many places have ridiculously high music. The food was good value for money. We went before the Barrowland and will be back. The 2 lads serving on Wednesday 22nd September were friendly.
