The Coachman is also a hotel and wedding venue as well as a very popular restaurant and cocktail bar.
Just a short walk away from the bottom of Kilsyth’s busy Main Street, it is easy to find for locals and visitors to the town alike.
Don’t let the sleepy location fool you – The Coachman is as fashionable as any up-and-coming spot in nearby Glasgow or Edinburgh. It has a fresh, contemporary feel and was bustling with customers of all ages when we arrived.
The serving staff are lovely, helpful and accommodating. One very cool thing The Coachman has is a box with two buttons on each table that allow you to call for service or the bill.
The Coachman has a great general selection of dishes, meaning there is something for everyone’s taste, be it a extra spicy curry or a traditional Scottish steak pie.
The food is delicious and hearty, with fantastic portion sizes for the price. We opted for a mammoth salt and chill burger, and a wonderfully creamy katsu curry. Despite it being a lunchtime outing, we were full for the rest of the day!
The space is gorgeous, and we were seated in a table tucked away in a corner, underneath a majestic mural drawing of a unicorn. Faux-plants and trees hung from the ceiling, and it felt like we were eating in an enchanted forest. The bar has a more lively, open atmosphere, allowing for both private dining or a fun night out.
The food is of a really great quality and the portion sizes are nothing to sniff at. My eyes popped a little on seeing that a pint of soda water and lime costs £2.80, but it cannot be denied that The Coachman offers great food, in a beautiful location, at a quality price.
