The Gannet is an award winning Scottish independent bar and restaurant in the vibrant destination of Finnieston in Glasgow. Whether it’s small bar plates, more substantial restaurant dishes from our set price dining or a la carte menus, or even banqueting set pieces for larger groups, expect a modern take on classical cooking. Our menus celebrate the best of Scottish produce, dictated by the rhythms of the British seasons in a stripped back and relaxed setting, and always feature seafood, meat and vegetarian options.

The concept for the restaurant was born in the summer of 2012 when Peter, Ivan and Pete Reid set off on a trip to the Hebrides to source produce for the restaurant they planned to open in Glasgow’s West End. By the end of the trip, having met scallop divers, oyster growers, fishermen, smokers, farmers, game producers and many interesting people besides, they also had a name for their new venture. Something that evokes Scotland’s Hebridean coastlines, giving a sense of place and landscape and at the same time offering a cheeky culinary reference as a moniker for those with large appetites: 'The Gannet' was christened.
