Fabulous as always

When friends are in town for a visit Cup is a regular choice to take them somewhere lovely. We all had afternoon tea which was scrumptious, plentiful (thank goodness for take home boxes as we couldn't manage it all but weren't willing to leave any behind) and served by friendly and attentive staff.

Had an Itison voucher for morning tea. Would highly recommend. We each got muesli, 3 sliders with fried egg, sausage & bacon, couple of scones and couple of Danish pastries. Everything was fresh and very tasty. Husband got a timer so his tea was perfectly brewed and I had a lovely espresso. Staff friendly & the decor lovely. Will definitely... More

Enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea, staff were very friendly and made you very welcome. Great variety of teas served with lovely choice of freshly made sandwiches with lots of cakes which I struggled to finish so was pleased to be given a cake box to takeaway. Nicely finished off with a glass of Presecco. Will definelty make a return visit!

Great ladies lunch venue and the afternoon tea served around us looked delicious. I came once before with a crowd of girls and I came... More

I took a friend to Cup today for her birthday. Our waitress was very cheery and helpful about the menu. She was able to answer all our questions and her continuing service was excellent. I had the french toast which came with berry topping in a dish and syrup. My friend had the crayfish open sandwich with salad. The tea... More

Best afternoon tea we've had yet. Great for adults and kids too. We got to take our leftovers home which was also a bonus. Staff are friendly and good fun. Will definitely visit again when back in Glasgow.

We stopped at Cup for coffee and a cup cake. Its a very busy venue and very popular for afternoon tea. Our cup cakes were lovely and we will visit again.

Very welcoming, staff very friendly but also very busy. Decor and ambience very good but halfway through our tea the music got very loud and as a consequence everyone's voice was raised and it almost became a battle. Presentation of food was excellent but the waitress forgot to bring milk for my tea. Quality of food was superb, I particularly... More
