We were lunching using a deal (a gift from a relative) for main course and tour of the house. The choice of main courses for this deal were somewhat limited and we found that it was chicken or chicken. This was nice and we decided to have a sweet to follow. This was very good and beautifully presented. Coffee was... More

We visited for a birthday treat with a lunch deal from 5pm which included an audio tour of the house. We ordered starters, mains and children's meals. The kids food arrived with the starters and it all looked and tasted great. We then waited nearly an hour for the mains (with 2 young kids this feels like a lifetime) the... More

Just had a lovely lunch with a friend at the Art Lovers Cafe. Has an ambience of fine dining and the food is beautifully prepared and presented but really not expensive at all. We both had poached eggs with smoked salmon on top of sourdough toast with avocado. Perfectly lovely light lunch. Surprisingly busy so booking recommended. Waiting staff very... More

Lunch in beautiful building in lovely park. Poached eggs with salmon and avocado on sourdough delicious for a light lunch. Dessert of raspberry and lemon mousse with meringue perfect. Well worth a visit.

This would be a 1 star rating had it not been for the professionalism of Manager on duty. To summarise: I am always alert when it comes to nuts in dishes so when my starter which had zero mention of nuts came with pine nut based pesto I was none too pleased. The waitress was very apologetic and without me... More

The restaurant was very busy, and I would advise booking beforehand. The deal was a small glass of wine with a main course and audio tour of the House. We both chose Chicken Supreme which was delicious and plentiful, and the wine was delicious. Glad we hadn't actually paid for the house tour as it was a bit disappointing. Only... More

Thank-you for taking the time to let us know about your recent visit, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed lunch and wine on your visit. The visitor attraction probably is best enjoyed by those with a specific interest in architecture and design, however the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh is so iconic that we find it appeals to...

The meal was fantastic and not expensive. The tour of the house was postponed which was disappointing. Another visit on the cards.

Turned up without reservation so would have been happy to wait. We asked the server what soup was on menu. She immediately responded by saying tomato and basil but we couldn't serve you we have had a lot of diners arrive. We would have been happy to wait but the look of panic that diners may turn up and actually... More
