Nestled within the Clarkston area of Glasgow is The Busby Hotel. This charming venue is home to the equally pleasant Carters Bar which serves a tasty menu of Italian and Scottish-inspired dishes.
The aim of the game in the Carters’ kitchen is to produce maximum flavours with minimal fuss. The cooking team are influenced by the rustic foodstuffs of Italy which are cleverly paired with fine Scottish ingredients. The listing begins with a classic choice of tasty topped bruschetta, haggis with a twist, steamed gingered scallops, and an aromatic homemade rosemary and garlic focaccia. The selection of main course dishes are many and varied; appealing to those who wish to sample some of Italy’s staple foodstuffs, as well as tourists and local residents who are eager to sample the best of Scotland.
Pasta dishes are plentiful and include lasagne, salmon pappardelle, and the British pasta comforter of macaroni and cheese. Meat-lovers have a juicy selection of prime cuts with saddle of venison, prime Scottish steak pie, dishes from the grill, and a choice of Carters’ classic burgers. The tempting array of stone-baked pizzas are numerous and represent the best of Italy’s dough-based favourite. Healthy patrons are treated to a classic Caesar salad or a yellow pearl couscous, tofu and edamame variety. For dessert, cool down with a trio of Italian ice cream or alternatively, remain loyal to Scotland’s culinary roots by opting instead for the Melba feuille which is stacked with marinated Scottish berries accompanied by vanilla cream.
The setting of Carters Bar is one of relaxation and comfort. The décor is a mix of the old and the new; catering for the varying tastes of its loyal patrons. The venue is named after the River Cart which flows nearby and which gives the hotel its peaceful setting.
