Didn't expect high things but I'm pleased to say I went back on another evening and had the same meal because I liked it so much. I had the carrot & courgette burger and I know it doesn't sound that nice but I loved it. I'm not a veggie but it just sounded different and it was really nice. Friendly... More

A large ladies church group visited The Commodore and enjoyed High Tea in a section of the main restaurant overlooking The Clyde. Management organised an excellent limited choice menu including tea, cakes and bread & butter. Staff were friendly and efficient. A very successful visit. Highly recommended.

Located on the seafront, the Commodore has ample parking to the rear. Booking isn't required as the restaurant/bar is large. We've never not managed to get a table. In the colder... More
