Most of us have heard of Scotts restaurants around Scotland, boasting epic water views in the coastal town of Troon or South Queensferry in Edinburgh. And now, a brand new Scotts branch is opening in another waterfront spot in Greenock, boasting panoramic views of River Clyde.
It is safe to say we love a good view here in Scotland, and travelling 40 minutes to Greenock for a decent evening out is not that big of a deal. Plus, if you want a wee drink or three, the train takes the same amount of time as it would to drive from central Glasgow.
Scotts Greenock is opening its doors on June 16 for all-day dining and is already accepting booking for those keen enough to try it asap. Buzzworks Holdings have been slowly releasing images of what the new restaurant will look like, and, so far, it looks absolutely amazing.
Scotts pride themselves in “casual but elegant dining”, with modern décor and traditional comfort food as well as more adventurous dishes at the ready. Expect plenty of fresh seafood as the location couldn’t be more convenient, such as Scallop and Chorizo Orzotto with seared scallops, charred corn cream, orzotto, Parmesan and chorizo oil. For the mains, guests can expect bao buns, tacos, fajitas, or pub faves like Fish & Chips, Steak Pie or some feel-good burgers and steaks.
On top of an abundant menu, the drinks selection is just as vast. Cocktail lovers can enjoy all the classic concoctions, as well as more creative ones: the Red Lady comes with Roku Gin, Noval Black, lemon, strawberry oleo, peychauds and egg white, while the Matcha Mojito Hendricks Gin, lime, sugar syrup, peychauds and cold brew green tea topped with mint.
Buzzworks Holdings MD, Kenny Blair, said: “Opening the doors to Scotts Greenock will be a real milestone as our first venture into Inverclyde, and as part of the continued growth.”
“With the last of the works taking place within the venue and our team preparing themselves to welcome guests within our stunning surrounds, we are confident our guests will really enjoy what is in store for them here at Scotts Greenock.”
