Description

Brel is a cool, stylish and fun restaurant and bar on Ashton Lane, famed for its fantastic food and cracking beer garden. Following a £300,000 pound revamp, Brel's new look combines the original charm of exposed brick and cosy feel (Brel was originally a stable and coach house), but with fresh additions of bright colours, warm stoves and twinking fairy lights for added atmosphere. Retaining the nod to Belgium from the bar's originial guise, the ever-popular moules are a stand out on the menu along with new dishes like the "Benny" egg selection, baked cheeses (can we get a nom?!) as well as delicious burgers and innovative and classic mains. Desserts include an incredible chocolate fondue or a mouth-watering New York cheesecake with a Maryland cookie base. Wowza. From the bar, wine, spirits and cocktails are joined by an ample selection of brews from Belgium and beyond. 

With outdoor seating onto a bustling Ashton Lane, and a beautiful garden out back for some seriously chilled chugging, (complete the beautifully-lit canopy of trees) there are few better, or busier, beer gardens in Glasgow on a sunny day. As for the other 360 days of the year, Brel's warm, rustic interior will keep you there until late whether you're eating in the restaurant, drinking in the conservatory, or hosting a private party in the mezzanine. Brel is a Glasgow bar with heaps of character and a more laid back vibe than many of its Ashton Lane neighbours. The crowd is friendly and informal, much like the ever attentive staff. Good eats, good beers, good times, there's a reason Brel is one of the stalwarts of Glasgow nightlife.

A word from the chef:
Famed for its signature mussel pots, (from £6.50), the fries here, served with aioli are also legendary (from £3.95). And as for the baked brie (£9.50), wow!

There's no mistaking the location, the famous Ashton Lane is home to Brel along with a smattering of other cool cocktail bars and restaurants. But this newly-renovated restaurant bar stands out from the cobbled street crowd with delicious...

The garden at the back is really nice on a sunny day and I suppose ideal for smokers. Food isn't the best in the area but they always have deals on groupon etc so pretty cheap. The fondue is nice!

Had the Brel burger and a basic rum and coke. The burger was cooked perfectly. Added the panchetta and jalapenos which was a good move as it would have otherwise been a bit bland.

Came here for some pre-drinks and foundation food - food was great, drinks were nicely priced. I wouldn't have stayed here all night - but it was a good place to start
