Personally, I love Pollok House. I love stately homes, Downton Abbey and Jane Austen novels and this house is a chance to see what it was to live as Glasgow aristocracy. The grounds are beautiful and if you're lucky to get a nice day you can walk for hours around the estate. The house itself is interesting. When you go... More

What has happened to the scones at Pollok House cafe? They used to use the old, classic 'Dough School' recipe and were totally delicious - all buttery and crisp with a good salty taste. I went today and was so disappointed. The scones have maybe been frozen then defrosted before being served? Pale and completely tasteless, like eating old cardboard.

When we arrived and showed our National Trust passes, one of them wouldn't scan and the woman at the desk was so rude to try and blame us and say there was something wrong with our passes. After us, we saw her tell a family that there was a queue for the café so they should therefore not bother coming... More

This impressive-looking building resides within Pollok Park on the south side of Glasgow. There are essentially two floors to explore plus a basement shop and café. There’s quite a bit of Spanish-influenced artwork on show. Helpful staff are on hand to answer any questions or to point out interesting facts and features about the property.

Got there bang on opening and the staff were not quite prepared and it took a while to get checked in. We went straight to the restaurant for breakfast. The restaurant is in the old kitchen. It's a real treat, huge room, beautifully appointed and set out with tables and chairs( with cushions). Jimmy, who welcomed us was an asset... More

very nice property, very friendly, helpful guides. loved the art collection, the library, and even the downstairs servants quarters are presented with nice shops and restuarant. On a drier day there are heavy horses to see and beautiful gardens and woods in the parklands to walk, where dogs are welcome on the lead in gardens. This property is 3 miles... More

Spent an enchanting afternoon at Pollok house. The art and artifacts are wonderful and the guides most charming and informed. The collection of Spanish Art is exceptional and a very well kept secret! If I had know about it I would certainly have visited earlier. The informative film about the art is a great asset and an excellent way to... More

We visited Pollok House at the weekend and enjoyed every minute. We had no idea that there was an incredible collection of Iberian art on display - why isn't this advertised? There are works by Murillo, El Greco, Goya, Coello and many more. This is a must for any aficionado and for anyone looking for a great day out. We... More

This is not the biggest NT house you will ever visit but is more than made up by the enthusiastic staff there. It felt like we had our own personal guides. The art collection was very interesting as were all the rooms we saw. I learnt things I did not know. The restaurant is very nice with a fine selection... More
