Named in Top 10 best fine dining restaurants in UK 2022. Head Chef Peter McKenna is as inspiring as he is gifted, creating constantly changing multi-course menus using painstakingly sourced high quality produce. Here at The Gannet, food is sourced from Peter’s network of foragers and farmers, producers and gatherers, herders and hunters.
The Gannet is situated in the Finnieston neighbourhood of Glasgow, founded in September 2013 by three friends Ivan Stein, Peter Read and Peter McKenna, with Kevin Dow joining them in 2014.
With no such thing as a typical menu, dishes can range from squid ink, onion & ramson, line caught mackerel with seaweed & horseradish to Herdwick hogget with asparagus & wild garlic… and only ever when in season. Indeed Peter names his dedicated suppliers on their website, supporting many exceptional Scottish producers. We experienced the best dish of west coast oysters I’ve ever had, mutton from Peelham, jersey butter from the Borders, sustainable fish and single origin chocolate dessert – a memorable tasting menu.
