Glasgow’s Anchor Line unveiled its menu for Christmas dinner


MY rule of thumb is never to do anything festive until December 1st – Christmas is less special when you start eating tarts in November.

But when The Anchor Line invited me over for their brand new Christmas dinner … well, that would be rude to say no.

The rue St Vincent restaurant continues the sold-out success of its festive Dine In / Out menu from last year with new Christmas programming.

And, despite the month of October outside, inside the upscale restaurant, it felt like Santa was expected any minute.

Our group received a sample of exactly what it will be like to dine at The Anchor Line starting December 1st.

The Christmas menu will be offered from the first of the month and costs £ 34 for lunch, or £ 37 on Friday and Saturday, and £ 42 for dinner, rising to £ 45 on Friday or Saturday.

If Christmas at home is more your thing, the restaurant also offers an in-home menu to take the stress out of food shopping and cooking.

Glasgow Timetables:

The three-course meal costs £ 85 for two and will be delivered on December 23 – or you can pick it up on Christmas Eve.

Everything is pre-cooked – including the turkey breast roast and all toppings – so you just need to reheat everything and follow the assembly instructions.

With the huge demand for plant-based food, it’s amazing how many restaurants still get it wrong when it comes to set menus.

Glasgow Timetables:

The formidable risotto capsizes the heart of a vegetarian every time.

Not at the anchor line.

I opted for a classic soup as a starter with sourdough bread while my friend had the shrimp cocktail to start.

It was tomato soup, a staple made with an added twist. It tasted like roasted pepper in there to brighten up the flavors while the homemade bread was healthy and delicious.

Glasgow Timetables:

My main course of pumpkin sage tortelloni with buttered sage, toasted pumpkin seeds, and a shallot and white wine reduction was a far cry from the bland vegetarian options on your standard menu.

It was a robust dish with real yellow egg yolk pasta, a creamy, light filling with a handful of seeds and pea shoots.

I was told the traditional turkey main course was amazing too.

A turkey ballotine was accompanied by pancetta, pork and chestnut stuffing, chipolatas, tender potatoes, roasted vegetables and pan sauce.

Glasgow Timetables:

An almost licked plate told us everything we needed to know.

Affogato – vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso – is one of my favorite desserts but

I chose to branch out and try the mango cream with raspberry gel, mini blackberry meringues and edible viola flowers.

Our meal was also accompanied by amazing cocktails which looked beautifully festive and tasted amazing too.

The Anchor Line certainly knows how to do things in style, so if you are looking for a

Christmas dinner with a bit of vintage glamor, this is the place for you.
