With just weeks to go until its grand unveiling, the Bonnie & Wild food hall at St James Quarter has announced two new exciting additions to its line-up of restaurants and food stalls.

Housed within the St James Quarter, Bonnie & Wild has been attracting interest since the project was announced in 2019.

Earlier this year it confirmed that BBC Masterchef Gary Maclean would be opening the seafood-focused Creel Caught, his first official venture, joining Edinburgh’s East Pizza and artisanal gelateria Joelato.

Now, it has been revealed that Glasgow institution The Gannet and vegan restaurant group Erpingham House will both be taking key food stalls at the centre, which will house eight food stalls, three bars and four speciality retailers.

The Gannet, opened by Ivan Stein and Peter McKenna, is one of Glasgow’s best-loved restaurants, and is renowned for its take on Scottish fine dining, as well as its commitment to high quality seasonal ingredients sourced from artisan producers, foragers and farmers.

The Gannet also won Scottish Licensed Trade News’ coveted Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year, and is holder of 3 AA Rosettes and a Michelin Plate.

Head chef Peter Mckenna said: “From the moment we heard about Bonnie & Wild’s Scottish Marketplace we knew it was a perfect fit for The Gannet. The venue is stunning. The finish, the concept, and the food and drink offering are all first class. I’m excited The Gannet is going to be one of the key food offerings within it.”

Upmarket vegan restaurant Erpingham House comes to Scotland for the first time after establishing itself in Norwich and expanding to Brighton.

Executive chef Meg Greenacre said: “We’d been looking to move to Scotland for some time, not least because both Russell and Robert have been desperate for us to open a Scottish Erpingham House! With Bonnie & Wild, we were presented with a superb opportunity to give our thoughtful cuisine a high profile platform in this incredible Food Hall space. I can’t wait for it to open!”

Ms Greenacre said guests to Bonnie & Wild could expect to see plant-based takes on old classics, such as their version of fish and chips, but she said they would be expanding the menu to take in locally available produce.

Bonnie & Wild is set to open on June 24 this year.
