“Wonderful Tea Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Was in Glasgow for the commonwealth games, after a rainy day of watching the games we decided that a good cup of tea and a slice of cake was in order, after taking to the Tourist information centre, they all recommended this little gem,
It was wonderful, a lovely choice / range of Teas and an excellent range of cakes and really good portions. too many to choose so the staff offered to give me a split portion of two different cakes rather just one large cake. The room was very well decorated, very quirky and the staff was great very knowledgeable and attentive,
If you go to glasglow you must try it.

“quirky and very very tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We arived in Glasgow earlier for the first time and used TA to find a place to eat. The reviews for this place got it spot on, it's quirky and has very attentive staff. They give large portions and I am now royally stuffed. This place is a must when visiting the area.

“Brilliant find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

After a quick search of 'gluten free food Glasgow' this popped up. So we thought we would give it a try. My partner and 2 year old son are both ceoliacs. Nearly everything on the menu was GF or could be adapted to be GF. There was so much to choose from. My son got soup and some nice GF toasted bread. This was the nicest soup I have ever tasted! Portions were huge, service was brilliant. The young man serving our table was very efficient and chatting away to my son. Lovely little place. Will definitely recommend and be back again. Thanks!!!

“Fell in love with the menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

After reading the TA reviews and seeing a sample menu online we were sold! The quirky menu lived up to expectations. Mammouth portions so you come away feeling you got a lot for your money. Seriously attentive staff... the kind that make you want to leave a big tip because they're not just going through the motions... they actually care! To say this is good pub grub is an understatement. Its traditional food in a quirky setting. And I think very reasonably priced for what you get! You have to go when visiting Glasgow.

“A standout in a sea of eating places”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We stumbled across this place on a walk through Glasgow looking for dinner options. We lucked out. The location is at basement level. The food was hearty and delicious. Lots of Scottish favorites but done in their own style. We had the steak pie and the fish cakes. I wish I had taken a picture of both meals but particularly the fish cakes. It looked superb. They both were delicious. We managed to just find room for a steamed ginger pudding with ice cream. Heaven.....! The portions are large so bring your appetites. Serving staff were all friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.
