I have visited the café on several occasions for lunch and have never been disappointed in the quality of the food or the service. I visited again today at lunchtime. Great choice of food, polite and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend eating here. Lovely walled garden in grounds is also worth a visit.

Lovely visit. Looking around The House was very interesting. ( a charge to enter. ) Food in the restaurant of a very high standard. Best to book as very busy. The walled garden was looking spectacular, with a variety of colourful flowers.

Having looked round the wonderful house we had lunch here. It was very good, the service we received was excellent, friendly and efficient. The food was very good and the desert plate for sharing was amazing. It is certainly a place I will come back to on future visits to Glasgow.

I brought family here recently after a couple of exceptional visits previously and was not disappointed. The food was once again outstanding and the manageress, Felicity looked us superbly from the moment we walked through the door and throughout the meal. The team were wonderful and we can't wait to return. Thank you
