AA Pick of the Pubs

Restaurant menu

‘Stravaig’ is an old Scots word meaning ‘to wander’, which perfectly fits the Stravaigin’s ‘think global, eat local’ philosophy. In a busy street near the university, this popular bar/restaurant has earned an AA Rosette and received an environmental award. The extended street-level café bar and basement restaurant draw the crowds to eat and drink among the contemporary decor, modern art and quirky antiques. It offers a long list of wines by the glass, a fair few internationally sourced bottled beers and real ales such as Argyll-brewed Fyne Chip 71. Expect innovative and exciting fusion food cooked from top-quality, seasonal Scottish ingredients – the same menu is served throughout. Until late morning you could have a full Scots breakfast or a vegetarian one. Typically available on the carte are smoked haddock beignet or Stravaign's own haggis, both meat and vegetarian versions; roast wood pigeon or seared sea trout. The Stravaigin churns its own ice creams and sorbets, which feature as desserts, alongside coconut rice pudding or oat milk and raisin pannacotta.
