Telfords Paisley dinner review

Our core team of Robert and Paul head to the well-loved Telfords Paisley for our bimonthly dinner review…

Although it may be conveniently located next to Canal Station, it’s not just passing foot traffic that propels the Stow Brae’s Telfords forward. A locale whose beer garden was a social lifeline for many once lockdown began to wind down, this restaurant and pub has become a popular place for local residents of all demographics to descend upon.

Demurely decorated and yet convivial in nature, everything from the staff to its inherently cosy seating means that you don’t dine and hurry off. In fact, the immediate inclination is to make yourself comfortable. 

Suitably refreshed by two ice cold pints of Tennents the meal gets underway with a flavoursome Moroccan red pepper hummus for me while Paul opts for the haggis and black pudding bon-bons.

With the dip and accompanying pita bread providing a robust taste that keeps you coming back for more, the bon bons are light and crispy with a discernible kick that is sure to go down a storm with anyone who likes to see these Scottish classics reinterpreted in contemporary fashion.

As for the mains, Paul simply can’t see past the very cordial staff’s recommendation of the wagyu burger. Served with side salad and fries, the patty itself was chargrilled to perfection. Immensely juicy and tender, the quality of the beef and the expert preparation it’d undergone meant that our designer sang its praises for the rest of the night. 



Meanwhile, I went for an old favorite in macaroni cheese with garlic bread. Easy to make but difficult to master, it was clear from the moment that it arrived this was no bog standard attempt at the classic dish. Rendered in a luxuriously rich Gruyere, Parmesan and cheddar cheese sauce, it had an immersive quality that was refined, comforting and filling all at once. 

Never ones to back down from the prospect of three courses, we rounded things off with a sticky toffee pudding and a fudge brownie sundae respectively. While neither of them were light by any stretch of the imagination, they’re not intended to be and they more than fulfil the criteria of anyone that’s as gleefully afflicted with a sweet tooth as Paul and I are.

Armed with an expansive menu and a whole host of affordable deals which only serve to sweeten the pot at a time when the price of heading out for a meal is becoming an increasingly daunting prospect for many people, Telfords have cultivated their own distinct ambiance that sets it apart from most locations in and around Paisley. So, if you haven’t headed down yet, we’d strongly advise you to do so and enjoy a delicious meal with a few tasty beverages of choice.
