1051 GWR Rooftop Bar
At 1051 GWR we are proud to be offering food from some of Scotland’s finest suppliers – our fish is selected daily by our supplier directly from Scotland’s coastal fishing ports and our beef is reared locally and dry aged for a minimum of 21 days. Our fruit and vegetables are local and seasonal and our dairy produce is supplied by one of Scotland’s oldest dairy farmers, who boast 5 generations of family farming. Our experienced head chef Steven Caputa, along with his kitchen team, is skilled at taking these great products and designing dishes that allow the quality of the raw materials to shine through. We offer a range of menus – see links below. Note that these menus are indicative; for the latest please get in touch with us at
Firstly a great big “Welcome Back” to everyone!! All being well, 1051 will reopen at 12 noon on April 26 and will, at a minimum, operate in line with Government Regulations, utilising for example, “ Track and Trace”, “Social Distancing”, “Maximum Group Numbers” etc. The plan is that for the first 3 weeks we will focus on the provision of delicious takeaway food served outside from our food truck. We will be setting up a well-stocked bar from which drinks can be collected and enjoyed outside. We should have some new beers and old favourites! We will be using contactless payment. Where possible shatter-proof crockery and glassware will be used. We are not permitted to serve alcohol indoors and our indoor food service will be limited.
Once the regulations allow, we will take a view as to the full reopening indoors. We hope to be operating as close to normally as quickly as possible, but with our customer and staff safety as our absolute priority. In the first instance, entry to the building is intended only for use of the restrooms. We expect to be using our mini marquees again and will be making maximum use of our outside areas which can be “rainproofed”. We are not planning on taking bookings at this point and accordingly service will be on a first-come first-served basis. In order to be fair to all customers, time limits will be applied when necessary.
We will try to make the environment as pleasant as possible, but we are in the West of Scotland, so we very much welcome anyone who wants to bring their own blankets to keep the cold out. If you have a microwaveable bean bag bring that as well. Dogs are, as always, welcome so long as their owners behave, and are closely tied up. That’s the dogs, not the owners! We will review the use of vaccine passports as more information becomes available. We will update this from time to time.
