On Sunday, Team Squirrel was invited to try out Sunday Roast at The Trading House.
Situated between Buchanan Street and George Square, The Trading House’s location couldn’t be better. This was our first visit to The Trading House, and definitely not our last.
Housed in the old Clydesdale Bank building on St Vincent Street, The Trading House has a lot of space to fill, and it does it perfectly. We were all impressed with the attention to detail in the interior design, and loved the warm, cosy feel that the interiors give to such a large space. For the Little Squirrels there was plenty of interesting features for them to feast their eyes on, and they both loved exploring the nooks and crannys of this interesting space, not to mention every toddlers dream staircase!
As for the food, we had been invited to try out the Sunday Roast from the menu, so we ordered Roast Chicken for myself, a Roast Chicken and a Roast Beef for the Little Squirrels, and Mr Hungry Squirrel had Roast Halloumi.
All of the roast dinners came with roast carrots, roast parsnips, cabbage, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese, oh, and stuffing with the roast chicken. Seriously, all the trimmings!!!
Mr Hungry Squirrel is vegetarian, and absolutely loved his roast Halloumi with all the trimmings. Both kids made a good attempt at their dinners but portion size was a little too generous for the little ones. I thoroughly enjoyed my roast chicken dinner, loved all the trimmings, especially the big pillowy Yorkshire pudding. My only wish was for crisper, fluffier, roast potatoes.
The highlight of our Sunday Roast for the Little Squirrels was, of course, dessert. On the menu, the kids Sunday Roast explains that they can choose two scoops of ice cream. The best surprise was when our server delivered these little trays of sand (crushed biscuits), with beach bucket and spade for the ice cream. Such a lovely presentation that brought big smiles to all our faces!
We all had an excellent Sunday Roast at The Trading House, and we highly recommend this as the perfect city centre location to satisfy your Sunday Roast cravings. Eating out with toddlers can be challenging but it was clear to see the Little Squirrels thoroughly enjoyed their Sunday lunch. Happy kids = happy parents!
The Trading House is a beautiful venue. We both loved the private dining room and ale tasting room which you can book out for celebrating a special occasion or for a business meeting. We both have big birthdays coming up in a few years time, and would love to celebrate with friends and family here.
Many Thanks to The Trading House for having us for Sunday Roast. Mr Hungry Squirrel and I really loved this venue, loved the food, and would also love to go back for some kid-free time, to sample what the bar has to offer.
