We popped in for a quick lunch as it was the only restaurant/cafe we could find in the area. I didn't know what to expect but we got lucky. The food was really good and the service was fast. We only had one course as we were in a hurry but we'll be back. I had a look at their... More

Attended for a family wedding and the setting was perfect. From arrival, through ceremony, reception and night time reception everything was perfect. The staff are very attentive and nothing was a problem or too much for them

Had a most enjoyable lunch here recently. I dined from the set menu, really good value at £14.99 for three courses, the others of our party dined from the cafe menu. My lunch from the set menu was a very enjoyable rillette of duck with toast and gooseberry chutney, followed by chicken breast with barley and butternut squash, then chocolate... More

Ate here for lunch today and, once again, had a lovely lunch. The sweet potato, chili and coriander soup was very good as was the hake. Service, once again, was first rate.

Stumbled across the park, we aren't familiar with Glasgow, seen a green spot and stopped to walk the dogs. Was a chilly day and once we had walked the pooches it was time for coffee. We had noted that there was a café at the House for an Art Lover, so we headed over. Oh, no dogs, ok put them... More

After a visit to House for an Art Lover we decided to eat in the adjoining cafe, there was a 15 min wait as it was lunchtime and very busy, so we walked around the walled garden which passed the time quickly and increased our appetites. It was well worth the wait as the warm scones with clotted cream and... More

A million miles from the hustle and bustle of life. Situated in the basement of house for an Art Lover is a long low room used as a cafe. Once though the usual novelty shop one must wait to be seated. Unlike everywhere else near by there are no bacon rolls or lentil soup. They stick to set times for... More
