Description
Red Onion is situated in the heart of Glasgow City Centre. The Chef/patron, John Quigley started his career in London’s West End where he quickly established himself and gained a reputation for excellent casual gourmet dining. He then took the opportunity to travel the world as a private chef to many rock stars and celebrities such as Bryan Adams, Tina Turner and The Bee Gees.

In 1996 John decided to move back to his hometown – Glasgow to put down roots. In the past 9 years John has opened and established numerous successful restaurants which have achieved international recognition. This year John, along with his wife Gillian, decided to open their own restaurant – Red Onion.

Red Onion is open 7 days a week serving food all day from 10am. It is a contemporary casual dining experience that offers something for everyone. John believes in using all the finest natural local produce and combining them with many ingredients and flavours he has experienced on his extensive travels around the world
