Whilst staying in Glasgow for the Games we had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant. From the moment you walk in through the door you are made to feel welcome. Decorated with antiques and curios with lots of old china it has a very good ambiance. First class menus with plenty of choice for all and not too expensive... More

Situated in Argyle Street Glasgow the the two fat ladies was difficult to distinguish as a restaurant. The outside looked like an old pub, you have to look twice to realise that you have come to a rather unique restaurant. Once you are inside it changes to an antique style, cosy atmosphere packed full of happy customers. It certainly has... More

It was my visit in Glassgow and choices were fewer in numbers especially being a business traveller. One of my American colleague suggested Two fat ladies to check out as he had been there many times. Our group was trully mixed and comprised of various nationalities. Restaurant location is quite off the main street. I was not too sure about... More

Beautifully decorated oldie worldy with tartan carpets and chairs, lovely china dishes, sparkling ornaments. They staff were beautifully dressed in kilts and tartan dresses. The service... More

Had the lunch menu and there was a great choice. Two of our group had an even better choice from the a la carte menu. Very nice and efficient staff in lovely surroundings

This beautifully converted pub is a great place to bring friends visiting Glasgow. We went during the Commonwealth Games. The staff were all beautifully dressed in Scottish attire and the service was excellent. The fish that we all chose was beautifully cooked and the pudding platter to share is absolutely superb
