The team behind the pop-up say each dish has been based on  a Christmas classic, with each featuring a modern update and seasonal ingredients.

Dishes on the menu, priced at £32.50 per head, include:

  • Chipolatas, grain mustard, rosemary and honey
  • Duck liver parfait, poached plum, hoisin and ginger
  • Turkey and stuffing meatballs, spiced red cabbage and chestnut crumble
  • Flat iron steak, chestnut mushrooms and celeriac rosti
  • Roast beetroots and squash, whipped feta, dukkah and mint
  • Christmas pudding and clementine millefeuille

This will be the first SWG3 residency for the team at Ox and Finch, who previously appeared at SWG3 back in 2003 under the banner of “Street Food Cartel” – a series of hugely-popular pop-ups, prior to the restaurant opening at 920 Sauchiehall Street in Kelvingrove.

A spokesperson for the award-winning restaurant team, who recently earned Bib Gourmand status from the Michelin Guide for the fifth year running, said: “We are really looking forward to returning to SWG3 and the exciting atmosphere of Acid Bar in order to give larger groups an evening of Ox and Finch food and drinks in one of the coolest new locations in the city.”

In addition to the bespoke festive menu, customers will also get to enjoy a late-night bar and DJ sets – as well as views of SWG3’s graffiti-decorated Yard.
