So, it finally happened. After a busy few weeks I finally made it down to The Hyndland Fox, a highly anticipated new eating spot in Hyndland in the heart of Glasgow's West End. In the short time The Fox has been open I have already heard countless good reviews from family and friends, and since I live locally I was even more intrigued. Word spreads fast around here! It is exactly what the area needed as most of the bars, cafe's, and restaurants in the West End are located more towards the bustling Byres Road, so this is perfectly placed for those a little further into Hyndland and Broomhill. 

As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a lovely member of staff who showed us upstairs to a seat in the upstairs mezzanine-style seating area. It was actually much larger than I had imagined, and I loved the simple yet modern interior design. As soon as we sat down I knew this was a place I could come for a quick breakfast, lazy brunch, or a lovely dinner. I spent a good 7-8 minutes just wondering how I was going to narrow down such a delicious sounding menu! I eventually settled on the steak burger and Stuart had a smoked salmon salad, both were fantastic! The coffee tasted incredible, so much so that we both had to get two Americanos each...

I loved the little touches at The Fox. A little later I had a pot of green tea, which had a piece of fudge on the side and it's own little tea cosy in the form of a jumper to keep the tea warm - so cute! Whilst we were inside I completely forgot about the miserable, rainy Monday outside. It was a very warm, relaxed and inviting atmosphere and the staff were lovely and helpful. A problem we often have when eating out is finding places that offer gluten free options - that's not a problem at The Fox! If you are gluten intolerant like us, there are a number of options on the menu that will make your mouth salivate just by reading them out! I have to say I was tempted by the gluten free homemade cheesecake but I thought i'd save that for my next visit.

The Fox is a great addition to the West End, there's nothing else like it.
