A fixture of Glasgow’s theatreland scene for more than 30 years, La Bonne Auberge is a godsend for culture vultures en route to venues such as The Pavilion Theatre and the Royal Concert Hall – it’s also right next to the Holiday Inn and serves as a handy drop-in for guests staying at the hotel. The interiors are pure bistro, with lots of knick-knacks dotted around, while the menu offers a crowd-pleasing assortment of dishes from pressed seafood terrine with tomato and chilli salsa to haggis bonbons, choucroute or char-grilled poussin with Puy lentil and Toulouse sausage stew. Meanwhile, fixed-price menus toss in lots of international standbys including omelettes, burgers, Cajun-spiced salmon and sticky glazed duck breast with Asian slaw. Also look out steak nights, ‘dinner and a movie’ packages and other special offers. Popular for weddings and functions too.
