Since returning to Glasgow John has opened and established numerous successful restaurants which have achieved international recognition. In 2005 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 12 noon. It is a contemporary casual dining experience with a menu that offers something for everyone. The kitchen produces new interpretations of classic Scottish cookery, serving dishes that people know and love. Its environment is modern and comfortable and the service relaxed and informal with the bustling feel of your local neighbourhood bistro. Red Onion has been re-entered The Good Food Guide for 2013 which is testament to the hard work of John and his team.
