Partick Duck Club is a casual all-day restaurant located in Glasgow's West End which serves a menu focused around comfort food. Opened in 2017 by Ross McDonald and Greig Hutcheson, the restaurant gets it's name from a social club formed in 1810 by a group of city workers who would walk to an inn Partick every Saturday to eat roasted duck. The relaxed spot therefore pays tribute to its backstory by serving a varied and affordable menu with plenty of duck options to choose from amongst other things. Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, Partick Duck Club is a spot for all occasions whether you want to grab a quick breakfast with friends, or fancy a hefty three-course meal.
Staying true to its roots, Partick Duck Club looks like a traditional pub from the outside with its painted blue facade and large windows. However, the inside of the restaurant feels more like a bistro; there are tartan-upholstered booths on one side of the bright room and banquettes hugging the walls, while a bright neon sign with the name of the restaurant hangs from the otherwise plain walls.
In terms of the food offering at Partick Duck Club, expect British classics with influences also coming from all around the world. Starters on offer range from fried macaroni cheese with truffle oil and parmesan to crispy Asian cauliflower, with chilli, sesame, coriander and soy. When it comes to main courses, you can choose from options on the menu such as sticky sweet teriyake duck bun with toasted sesame mayo, Barra sole goujons with creamed French peas, and the restaurant's signature dish of 12 hour duck leg served with a crispy duck egg, duck fat fries, and spiced pineapple chutney.
Desserts on offer include an indulgent deep fried ice cream cinnamon bun, while Partick Duck Clubs extensive drinks menu features everything from draught beer and wine by the bottle and glass, to a variety of soft and hot drinks.
