If you just want to stop to see some impressive art exhibits this is the place to go. But the cafe is a different story. The coffee is horrid, the food is terrible, the Macaroni cheese is swimming in oil. The price for standard of food served is appalling, puts you off coming here in the first place.

What a shame about the cafe. The smell of chip fat greets you first and then you survey what limited food is on offer. I have been twice and I can say that the soups are unrelentingly awful. Far too much pepper, scarely edible. Plastic bread. The cakes are bought in and not the quality one would hope for. The coffee was OK. The staff are unfriendly unlike the ones supporting the exhibitions and at reception who were delightful.

The Tramway held a great art exhibition by Nick Cave "Until" which was free to members of the public. This was the first time I had ever attended the venue and was well impressed. Very interested in attending future performances. The Hidden Garden with cafe was stunning as well.

As always, the venue was a brilliant place to really feel part of the performance. It has such an intimate feel. The performance, The Dark Carnival, was indescribably brilliant. The Cafe was such a let down with over priced drinks and only just average food in plastic containers with plastic cutlery.

Steps away from the train station lie the Hidden Gardens and international contemporary art and performance space Tramway. At the back of the building is an incredible lawn and garden with wooded area, not only a feast for the eyes but a delight for all the senses: touch, smell, hearing. From the soft grass underfoot to the crunchy gravel of the walk beside the raised beds, the smell of lavender wafting through the air dense with the sound of bumblebees busy at work, everything invites you to stop, look, enjoy. Children love to explore the paths winding through the birch trees. Open year-round (during the fall and winter, the gardens and the exhibition spaces close at 5 pm though the building itself is open until 8pm for meetings and events). The vast space has been transformed from a former tram depot and is the centre of much artistic activity. I've been there for the Unlimited dance festival, for theatre performances, for a talk on slavery and Scottish links to the slave trade, and most recently to see some of the visual art shows. Every time, I've been surprised and delighted by what I've seen, much broader than my narrow expectations. For the slavery seminar, for example, I was expecting a room with folding chairs but what was presented was an expanse of rolling green lawn, dotted with little information stands offering a chance to get involved in anti-modern day slavery campaigns; standing in the open air, enjoying the beautiful gardens, we did get to hear talks by university lecturers along with representatives of Fair Trade Scotland and then audience and speakers alike were invited to a truffle-making workshop and a delicious meal followed by a cosy bonfire and a lantern march for the wee ones in attendance. I like the sense of being connected to a bigger community; although funding structures make it seem as though we have to decide between fine arts or performing arts, contemporary or historical perspectives, education or informal knowledge exchange, Tramway seems to disolve those boundaries and make everything magical and possible. Practical note: Travel by train is convenient; steps away from Pollokshields East railway station (just one or two stops from Glasgow Central station). The exhibition spaces close during the winter festive season (roughly third week of December through first week of January) but Tramway and the Hidden Gardens are open throughout the year, except for Dec. 25, Jan. 1 and Jan. 2. The exhibition spaces might not always be something for younger kids but on my last visit I saw that Tramway has a kit for children, a map they can follow. (I am going to try to attach a photo of this guide for kids). There's a new cafe in place (I think it was changed in 2018). The cafe closes at 16:30 but is usually open in the evening if there is a performance or other event.
