Yelp's Doors Open Day Party at Alston Bar & beef

Posted by Briony C


The scene was set for an underground party like no other – we were heading underneath Glasgow Central Station to enjoy delicious gin tasting and steak samples at the hottest new addition to Glasgow's dining scene, Alston Bar & Beef. To celebrate the weekend of Doors Open Day, Yelpers received a key upon checking in – Sara T was lucky enough to win the £50 meal voucher for Alston. Yelpers then followed the tasting map around 6 stations of gin – featuring Darnley's View, Caorunn, Brockmans and Fentimans. Canapés were presented and then followed up with some delicious cuts of meat – rib-eye, rump, sirloin and fillet from the Scottish Borders. 

Check out the photos, and read the rave reviews

Yelp Glasgow Goes To Home Brewing Science School At Avenue G

Posted by Briony C


It was time to go back to school for 25 Yelp Glasgow Elites and indulge in some delicious coffee! Avenue G would be our teachers, and showed us all the hottest new home brewing methods – Aeropress, Chemex and V60. Each method was demonstrated, explained and then Elites had the chance to taste and decide which they loved the most! On hand were some of Avenue G's delicious BLTs and MLTs (mushoom!), as well as expertly made espresso martinis to get the party started. We all finished the night with a bit more knowledge, a few new friends and a new appreciation for home brewing!

Big Day Out to Three Sisters Bake

Posted by Briony C


The Yelp Glasgow Elite Squad jumped on a specially chartered bus, and headed out to Quarrier's Village – a beautiful town which is the home of Three Sisters Bake. We were treated to a feast of the most jawdropping delights in a gorgeous spread – mussel popcorn po' boys, Texas beef skillet chilli, mushroom & gorgonzola arancini, ham hough with swiss & gherkins. If you thought you were full, then the cakes arrived! And what beauties they were – chocolate orange gluten free cake and rhurbard and custard slice were just two of the treats. Finishing off with tea and coffee, it was a challenge to get the Yelpers back on the bus as they all wanted to stay and enjoy the delights of Three Sisters Bake some more!
