I was very kindly asked by One Cove Road if I would like to visit them and have a brunch. When I saw it was in Gourock, I had to research what the best way to get there was before I could accept. Please remember my review is 100% honest, and not influenced in any way just because it was free.

After a little Googling, I found I could get the train from Glasgow Central to Gourock but get off at the second last stop (Fort Matilda) and from there it was only a 10 min walk which was perfect so I accepted the invite.

The walk from the train station to One Cove Road, was very nice as you have an amazing view of the sea and the surroundings.

Inside was nicely decorated, with a black and white theme. Even the staff’s uniforms were black and white, which was a very nice touch and looked very smart.

 

The Food…

Full Scottish £8.95 (N/A Today)
Two slices of bacon, square slice sausage, black pudding & haggis, fried egg, potato scone, mushrooms & tomatoes

I was very hungry so I thought let’s get the full breakfast……

First impressions were this was a good portion, and smelled really good….now it was time to taste.

Everything was perfectly cooked, and mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm the sausage was really!!!! good. It had the thickness of a burger but the flavour was mmmm this was the best sausage I have had in a long time.

Overall this was very filling, and I enjoyed every mouthful and as you guess LOVED the sausage. I would visit again just to have the sausage 🙂

Firstly I would like to thank One Cove Road for the invite, I had a lovely visit and a lovely day in Gourock.

The staff were all very friendly, and very helpful with my visit today.

I would recommend One Cove Road to anyone that takes a visit to Gourock, you can either sit in or take away. If you take away you can enjoy a lovely walk, with a lovely view.

Check it out you won’t be disappointed, and try the sausage!!!!

See you again 🙂

I have passed here many times and looked at the window and thought mmmm on display is some displays of what desserts you can have and they all look so good.

I started to check out Bing Soul on Instagram, and what I saw I knew I had to 100% visit as it looked amazing!!!

So I finally did….

On entering we were seated, I opted for the window seat so I could enjoy the outside view of people watching.

What I Ordered…

Cheeky Choco Waffle

WOW! this is what I said as it arrived.

To be honest I wasn’t sure how to start eating this, but I thought if its going to be messy so what and I just went for it.

It was amazing, packed with waffle, ice cream, cream, oreo bits soooo good perfect for my sweet tooth.

Word of warning after eating this you will be very full for the rest of the day.

I cant wait to have another.

Until today I had never really heard much about here, and today I was meeting Emma Eats and Weekends with Wendy for brunch.

Unfortunately Wendy couldn’t make it due to unforeseen circumstances, so it was just me and Emma.

This place is a little off the main street that people would walk on, so it is so easy to miss which is a shame as it’s a really nice.

As you can see from the above photo its very nice inside, and has a really nice and relaxing atmosphere.

The Food…

homemade cheesy beano, spiced red pepper sauce, yoghurt & herbs £8.25

IMG_4686

I have not had a cheese beano in many many years, so when I saw this I had to have it.

This sounded like an interesting take on the beano, so when it arrived and looked as good as you can see in the photo I was hoping it would taste just as good.

This was very very very good, it brought back memories from childhood when I had a beano plus the peppers added that extra flavour.

I would highly recommend this.

Flourless Chocolate Cake, creme fraiche £4.50

IMG_4688

After the beano I was very full, but hey there is no harm in looking at the desert menu right? well yeah…as I ordered the chocolate cake….greedy me

I have a sweet tooth and when I saw this it sounded interesting, flourless? how different could this taste….

This was the best chocolate cake I have had, it was sweet, and very soft and very very moreish!!!! yes I could have easily had another but I didn’t want to be too much of a pig today….more so since it was brunch.

If you love chocolate cake take a trip to here and try it! you will not be disappointed.

I am very glad that Emma recommended here, as this is a little gem that is hidden.

As you would expect by the name “Duck Club” duck does show up a lot on the menu, but there are other dishes to if you are not a big fan.

I look forward to going back and trying more dishes and having more chocolate cake mmmm I am drooling already!

See you soon.
