Meaning 'eat well', Cail Bruich is famed for its five-to-seven course tasting menus using the best local Scottish or British produce.  

Michelin recommends that guests book the kitchen counter and enjoy the Chef's Tasting Menu to see Lorna's skills in action. 

Finnieston eatery Unalome by Graeme Cheevers earned a star in February, being the second restaurant in the city to have one. 

The Cateys will be held in London on July 5, 2022.
