Dinner 2017

As part of GifCon 2017 we will be hosting a social dinner for all speakers and guests, at local bar and restaurant The Curler’s Rest. Set on the historic and fashionable Byres Road in Glasgow’s own West End, and situated just around the corner from the university campus, The Curler’s Rest was the local haunt for the entirety of the Fantasy MLitt’s first year.

The three-course dinner will include the following:


Paris brown mushrooms with Dolcelatte on toasted sourdough
Roasted beets with feta and lovage nut pesto
Fried squid in a sweet chilli glaze


Homemade British beef burger with smoked cheddar, bacon and fries
Butternut squash and Pecorino risotto with pumpkin seeds
British ale battered cod with chips and mushy peas


Chocolate brownie with salted caramel ice cream
Welsh honey, date and pistachio frangipane
Sticky toffee pudding

It also includes drinks, from lager, cider and wine to non-alcoholic lemonade.
