Location and contact

The Grill Room is part of the spectacular 29 Members Club that overlooks the Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow. The restaurant is sophisticated without being overbearing, decorated with dark wooden floors, sumptuous drapes and elegant seating. The menu is equally lavish, arranged by award-winning chefs, and can typically include dishes such as the native Cullen Skink, chickrn stuffed with spiced prawns and grilled wild sea trout. Desserts are equally stylish and can include Eton Mess and chocolate tart with orange sorbet. Three courses, excluding wine, cost around £30 per person; luxurious dining at affordable prices.

Can’t fault the food here, starters and mains were excellent, dessert was ok, and the coffee, well that was poor. Service was really disappointing and not what you’d expect from 29 overall. Wasn’t warm and friendly in the restaurant, although it was busy with diners....More

To be honest I am not sure, we used the stairs. Best to contact the restaurant directly.
