This is an old thread, but I am hoping RM67 will come back and let us know the name of the place that served hog roast sandwiches at the Christmas market on Argyle Street. We will probably be in Glasgow in Fall 2016. We loved Oink sandwiches in Edinburgh and would definitely seek out other purveyors of pig on bread.

RM67: Update -- I did make it back to Glasgow in late August. Only 2 nights but did fit in the Kelvingrove (and a lot of other sites) and walked about 100 miles (only a slight exaggeration).

Hi Motorgirl38,

The Christmas Fair is moving back to its usual location of St Enochs square this year (and presumably next year too). I don't remember the name of the hog roast stall/truck, but the market wasn't huge so it would probably be pretty easy to track down if they opt to trade there again. I do remember that there were a lot of different meats on offer - not just pork - and you could choose to have them with or without stuffing, crackling etc in baps or baguettes. It was really really tasty and (dare I say it) better than the hog roast at my brother's wedding (probably/hopefully he will never read this).

Hi Janis,

I loved the Kelvingrove but really didn't do it justice due to my aching feet - it was our very last port of call pre-boozing and grubbing that evening, after a full day of walking around the city centre. I would recommend the Ben Nevis bar to you on Finnieston St for next time as it has a huge range of single malts (and I think you are a bit of a whisky drinker?) We must have just missed each other in Edinburgh as Tommy and I were there mid August for the Fringe and I think you and the other GTG-ers were there at the end of the month?

A rambling quest around Glasgow for hog roast is in order. Then some whisky.

Btw just noticed upon reviewing some of my links that the Oran Mor group (responsible for running the church that's been converted into a pub and theatre) have also opened a hotel just a few minutes walk away.

This was one of my favourite bits of Glasgow so potentially worth a look for people asking about lodgings (and not particularly pricey either)
