The award-wining Ox and Finch restaurant is to take up residency at the SWG3’s Acid Bar for the whole of December.

The festive pop-up in Finnieston will kick off on December 1 and run until Christmas Eve, offering diners an exclusive culinary experience in one of Glasgow’s coolest venues.

The experience has been created specifically for larger groups and office parties.

Each dish is based on a Christmas classic, but updated with exceptional, seasonal ingredients, promising a festive feast like no other.

Dishes on the menu, priced at £32.50 per head, include:

· Chipolatas, grain mustard, rosemary and honey
· Duck liver parfait, poached plum, hoisin and ginger
· Turkey and stuffing meatballs, spiced red cabbage and chestnut crumble
· Flat iron steak, chestnut mushrooms and celeriac rosti
· Roast beetroots and squash, whipped feta, dukkah and mint
· Christmas pudding and clementine millefeuille

This will be the first SWG3 residency for the team at Ox and Finch.

The team previously appeared at SWG3 back in 2003 under the banner of “Street Food Cartel” – a series of hugely-popular pop-ups, prior to the restaurant opening at 920 Sauchiehall Street in Kelvingrove.

The restaurant team recently earned Bib Gourmand status from the Michelin Guide for the fifth year running.

An Ox & Finch spokesperson said: “We are really looking forward to returning to SWG3 and the exciting atmosphere of Acid Bar in order to give larger groups an evening of Ox and Finch food and drinks in one of the coolest new locations in the city.”

In addition to the bespoke festive menu, customers will also get to enjoy a late-night bar and DJ sets – as well as views of SWG3’s graffiti-decorated Yard.
