Review – Stack & Still, Glasgow

Untitled design-16
It may have only opened last weekend yet over 10,000 pancakes have made in the UK’s largest urban pancake restaurant located right in the heart of Glasgow city centre.

Stack & Still have made their forever home in the old Byron Burger joint on West George Street. The restaurant can sit 200 people and is the UK’s first self dispense bar with beer, cider and prosecco! There’s even a Grapefruit Gin Collins cocktail ready for you on tap! (Due to the fact I was driving, I was unable to take advantage of this!)

The first piece of advice that I will give you is BOOK A TABLE! There was over an hour’s wait to be seated and the queue was literally out the door. You can book a table online for free HERE.

Secondly, when you face the menu, there is a hell of a lot to choose from!

Choosing which stack to go for will be tricky as there are 5 variations to choose from including a Gluten Free option and Sugar Free stack, too. As a buttermilk fan, I HAD to choose them for my stack.

What you need to ask yourself is ‘How hungry am I?’ You can have a Single (1), Short (3) or Full Stack (5) – I was really ravenous and went for a short stack of 3 light, fluffy pancakes.

Finally, once you’ve sorted your stack, it’s the question of whether a sweet pancake or the savoury kind is taking your fancy. With me having the sweetest tooth imaginable, of course I went for the sweet option! Each topping is either £1/£2 and you can have as many as you want!

I could have gone crazy with the toppings but I limited myself to 6! My pancakes were topped with:

Mascarpone,
Oreo Biscuit,
Toffee Crisp,
Nutella,
Peanut Butter Cream,
Sweet/Salty Popcorn.

We waited around 15/20 minutes for our pancakes as it was lunch time and the restaurant was extremely busy with pancake lovers and people queuing to get their pancake fufilment. Even though it was a Tuesday, pancakes can be enjoyed any day of the week as they’re open all 7 days from 8am – 11pm.

Three fluffy cloud pancake arrived hot and freshly made with toppings galore and it was an exremely pretty sight! It’s the type of dish that you’d be proud to share on your social media pages because they look incredible!

With the mixture of saltiness and sweetness, it was just the right balance considering the amount of sweet toppings on the pancakes. The peanut butter cream blended in nicely with the mascarpone and the sweet/salty popcorn pieces literally melted in your mouth with the delicious pieces of Toffee Crisp and Oreo. Adding a nice think spread of Nutella and if that doesn’t satisfy any sweet tooth, I don’t know what will! The dish was certainly filling and made a great first impression on me. This is exactly what Glasgow needed – something a bit different and regardless of what season it is, pancakes will ALWAYS be in fashion.

My overall verdict: When I heard that a pancake house was opening in Glasgow, I knew I HAD to try it straight away! Even in an hour long queue, it is worth the wait. Staff are super friendly and are more than happy to help you and give you some good chat. The pricing is very reasonable and the portion size does not disappoint. The toppings are jam packed full of flavour which stays in your mouth long after you’ve eaten. The atmosphere inside is a great, busy place which is electric and buzzing with loads of excited people trying a new venture for the first time. I would recommdend Stack and Still to anyone who’s needing their pancake fix and if visiting Glasgow for a few days, it needs to be on their places to eat list.

Can I make a booking for Pancake Tuesday 2019 yet?
