London, August 25 (ANI): Want to try a traditional dish with a twist? Then, book a table at the world's only "sail-thru" fish and chip shop in Scotland that offers foodies the most "extraordinary" culinary experiences.
The Clydebank restaurant is bracing itself for an influx of tourists after being filmed recently by a team of European documentary-makers.
Situated on a purpose-built boat, the Debra Rose, McMonagles is berthed permanently on the Forth and Clyde Canal in the West Dunbartonshire town.
Comprising an 80-seater restaurant and a takeaway section, the family-run business has become an unorthodox landmark in the west of Scotland, most famous for the hatch that allows it serve hungry sailors using the waterway.
Currently enjoying their 20th year of trading, his restaurant took up its berth at a time when civic authorities in and around Clydebank were taking the first tentative steps to regenerate the Forth and Clyde Canal, and the novelty of its premise did a great deal to attract people from the Greater Glasgow area to a waterway that had long lain in a sorry state.
Apart from the novelty, the secret of the restaurant's success, proprietor John McMonagle insists, is the food.
"All our fish is fresh as can be and we will only cook to order," the Scotsman quoted McMonagle as saying.
"People know they will have to wait for five minutes while we make their fish, but it's well worth it," he added. (ANI)
