I visited with my family one Saturday afternoon for lunch following my daughter's dance class in the nearby Palace of Art. I found the service to be excruciatingly slow, portion sizes extremely modest and the atmosphere dampened by being seated in a little closed off side room as opposed to the main dining area. Then I had the luxury of... More

A long way from anywhere! Décor needs refreshing a bit and the room we were in was far too hot. Friendly staff. Just not quite living up to its name.

We had our wedding here in June 2014 and loved every second of it. The music room was stunning and added a definite wow factor, and as the sun was out the balcony was perfect. Rachel did a fantastic job planning the day, Craig did a seamless job ensuring the day went smoothly and keeping my bride calm. The meal... More

Fantastic wedding venue. Lovely day made special by the staff - in particular, the Master of Ceromony, Craig. They had set out the rooms perfectly, meal was delish and kept the wine flowing. Buffet at night was awesome - the Scotch pies were too moreish!!! Thank you

My wife and I had our wedding reception here very recently. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff were great in their organisation of the event and made a stressful process very straightforward. Our wedding planner Rachel Fyfe was very helpful in delivering what we wanted for the reception with minimal fuss. Everything ran to to time under the... More

We got married here in 2004. The building is simply gorgeous, the staff are amazing and the food in the restaurant is brilliant. Well worth a visit.

We had the delight of having our youngest daughter married in the House for an Art Lover. The Charles Rennie Mackintosh design and artefacts in the Art Nouveau style made for an exquisite setting in the relative tranquility of Bellahouston Park. Both the religious ceremony and the reception were held in this beautiful house. The staff were excellent in all... More

Great knowledgeable staff and so happy to lock your bags away while looking at this impressive building. Cafe/restaurant would shame most at tourist attractions in the UK. I'm rather happy that I was persuaded to visit and eat there!
