Festive Neighbourhood Vibes!

The Skillet Hyndland

Hyndland. A leafy suburb of the West with a host of bakeries, cafes, bars and restaurants. Packed with eating options it’s difficult to stand out from the crowd. It’s never a problem finding somewhere for a drink before heading off for dinner but what if you want both under the same roof? Then consider The Skillet.

On Hyndland Street, The Skillet has a relaxed vibe but the talented kitchen team ensure the food on offer is anything but.  
In the capable hands of experienced restaurateur Luke Tracey, his pedigree in the industry speaks for itself, this new venture is a family affair with his partner and previous restaurant team – all of whom are as passionate about The Skillet as Luke. 

Very much evoking a brasserie style eatery The Skillet creates an equally welcoming atmosphere regardless of the time of day with the menu offering a mix of favourite classic dishes with modern twists.


Open Wednesday to Sunday for brunch, lunch and dinner, there are some special menus to look out for too. A two-course lunch menu is only £18. Steak nights on Wednesdays and Thursdays are a bargain with steaks, sides, sauces, and wine at £50 per couple. The delicious Sunday Roast is served every week, until, well, it’s all run out! With vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options available, everyone is truly welcome.

The bar is also the perfect place for Festive catch ups with friends for drinks in a cosy atmosphere with delicious signature cocktails. There’s even a stand-alone Negroni menu! 

And that’s what makes The Skillet a different addition to the West End dining scene. Restaurants with a great bar where you are welcome just for drinks are few and far between. It seems in most venues you either must be eating there to partake of a cocktail, or go out for drinks first before heading somewhere else for dinner. Having everything in one venue makes for a real bonus in this West End establishment.

With a Festive menu on offer from the 29th November through to Hogmanay with stand outs such as Moroccan Mussells and Monkfish Scampi – seafood lovers are as well catered for as those looking for all the usual seasonal faves. And with multiple spaces from bar, to mezzanine, to nook, available to hire – bigger and more intimate gatherings of family, friends and colleagues are very welcome – but book quick!

But wait, we’ve saved the best till last.  Yes, there’s a kid’s menu so your little ones are catered for too. But even better this lovely cocktail bar and restaurant is dog friendly.  So, there is no need for the whole family not to be together for a lovely meal and drinks this coming Festive season.

If the dog’s happy, I’m happy and at The Skillet, we’ve found our happy place this Christmas. Good vibes!
