About Alston Bar & Beef

The original Alston Bar & Beef is located underneath Glasgow Central Station, and is named after the long-forgotten main street of Grahamston Village, which was demolished to make way for the station in the mid-1870s.

Mancunians, like Glaswegians, are spoilt for choice when it comes to great places to eat. Our Scottish heritage is still at the heart of what we do: our Tweed Valley beef comes from accredited farms in the Scottish Borders, each renowned for producing quality beef that is full of flavour & tenderness. The beef used by Alston is selected from the top 1% of the Scottish suckler herd.

Manchester’s Corn Exchange, home to our restaurant, is also steeped in history. The building was a key trading centre for farmers and merchants in the early 20th century and saw meetings of the ‘Anti-Corn Law League’, who campaigned for more affordable food for the working classes.
