The Turner Prize show looks good and a great thing for tramway but the service (and this is particularly true in the cafe) is dreadful. One of worst gallery experiences I've had. A real shame.

We aren't local to the Tramway and had to take 2 trains to get there - but we were keen to see the Turner Prize exhibit. So glad we made the effort however as we will now go back there to check out other exhibits/performances. It is a gigantic building next to the Pollokshields East station, and it does have... More

Went to see the Turner Prize exhibition. Well worth the walk, though we got the train back. Will pay more of an interest in the prize, a must if you get the chance

This is an excellent gallery for some displays and shows with a great restaurant too. There is also a lovely garden and of course theatre. We went along to see the Turner Prize exhibition. Well after being at the Kelvin Grove Art Gallery in the morning this was a stark contrast. there were 4 'artists' on show. Not for me... More

Great space, very funky, loved the Turner. Shop could have more to buy, inspired by the Turner Prize, like fur coats so you can make you're own art installation when you get home. Wife can't stop singing. Loved it :-)

Fantastic venue, space, etc but that's about it. Staff seem indifferent and the Cafe waiting staff (at lunchtime I might add) gabbing to themselves instead of encouraging customers. Terrible waste of a cracking venue. We were dead excited about seeing the Turner Prize 2015 but left feeling totally underwhelmed by the venue and service. Dismal.

A review in two parts. First the museum/venue/space part: I've been in the Tramway many times. Lots of theatre stuff. It's an excellent, adaptable venue. I've seen loads of cool stuff here. Consistently friendly, helpful staff. Currently running the Turner Prize, which is on until January. Well with a visit. It was fantastic. Very challenging works and also free to... More

We'd decided, during a trip around Glasgow, to stop off for lunch somewhere and I'd downloaded the menu for Tramway's cafe from their website, saw the breakfast and thought that looked good enough to pay a visit for. Unfortunately, by the time we got there the breakfast part of the menu no longer applied - they stopped selling those items... More

The place was a tip. Hard to find a spot to sit when all empty tables were - and remained - covered with dirty dishes and other peoples' left overs. Had to clear our own table while staff walked by. Had taken friends visiting Glasgow from London. They were far from impressed. Embarrassing really.
