Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had an excellent brunch at Scran a few day ago, washed down with very good coffee. This is a small cozy place with friendly staff. Well worth seeking out.

On a trip from Newcastle to Glasgow and happened to chance on this lovely little place on the way. Ordered two sandwiches to take away and absolutely did not disappoint. Food was amazing and service was brilliant. Would highly recommend !

The food here was fantastic and the staff were excellent. It's quite small, so either get there early or be prepared to wait, but they were very accommodating and allowed people to wait in until a table became free. We had toasties, which were lovely...and we also had a side of fries, which were huge! Staff were friendly and attentive. Perfect indie lunch venue.More

Cannot speak highly enough about this fabulous wee find….now located in London Road, near the Barrowlands. Todays brunch was Loaded Burger Fries & The Catalonian Toastie….wow! Already previously tried the loaded fries in previous visits….always a firm favourite of ours, and just delicious! The toastie,...tried for the first time today, absolute taste sensation - tasty, flavours are just perfection! Service is friendly & efficient, cannot wait until our next visit….thanks again Scran ❤️ #scranlover #deliciousfoodMore

As good as it gets. Food is excellent, service is excellent, cakes are amazing and the coffee is fantastic. Great effort goes into making this place fantastic. I visited the old Scran the day it opened and the new location is true to its roots....Always a pleasure visiting and I could recommend pretty much everything.More

Having heard so much about this place, I went along for my lunch. It's a small cosy place with a few tables and a reasonable sized menu. The recommendation was to try the chicken schwarma, which I did. I also ordered their loaded halloumi fries....The food was fine. The wrap was small enough and was basically a chicken curry in a wrap with a bit of cabbage. The fries were fine but no more than that. I would have given Scran a rating of 3 but the staff were very good and very friendly and everything else was lovely.More
