Visited on Saturday around 5pm with a voucher deal which included a platter, dessert each and 2 glasses of champagne. The welcome we received was very friendly and we were shown to our seats promptly. The server was excellent making us feel very comfortable and we ordered our meat platter and glasses of champagne. Food was great as was the... More

Took my friend as a treat for afternoon tea. The interior of Cup is just gorgeus, arched ceiling and shiny tiling made for an elegant setting. Place was full good atmosphere. Greeting by staff was prompt and we were shown to our booked table. We took prosecco with our afternoon tea, nice large glass. We got our cake tower minus... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in on a whim after having a few hours to kill in Glasgow before catching a train. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful. My boyfriend had an afternoon tea and I had a Tahitian Vanilla tea which was bursting with flavour. Each of us got 4 cups out of each of our pots which... More

Having read some less-than-complimentary reviews of Cup on TripAdvisor recently, we approached our recent lunch booking at the city centre lounge with a degree of trepidation. In the event, we needn’t have worried. Almost everything about our visit was superb, from the friendly and efficient staff to the outstanding calibre of cuisine. We had a light lunch and a dessert...

I would like to start this review by saying that I have been to Cup Tea Lounge on a number of occasions with my mum and husband for lunch, afternoon tea and desserts in the evening (on some occasions using vouchers but on most as full paying customers). The reason we keep going back is that the food is good,... More

Fiona Thank you for your review and I am very sorry to hear about our shortcomings on your visit. I had actually popped in on Friday evening and had seen you sitting with your Husband. In actual fact Sukhy was in the kitchen chasing your desserts as you had been waiting so long. I have now had a chat with... More

Reserved a table here for lunch this past Sunday. We have visited both the tea lounge and the tea room (in Glasgow's West End) previously and each time has been special. The menu offers a variety of options to accomodate everyone. We started off with some sandwiches and soft drinks and then ordered speciality teas, cupcakes and scones. We cannot... More

Called in here without reservation on a rainy Sunday afternoon and were welcomed like long lost friends. We were sat at the bar initially but a table soon became available and we enjoyed excellent home made soup with freshly cooked scones. Of course the speciality is afternoon tea and I must say the cakes and pastries looked absolutely delicious. They... More

I visited this tea lounge with a group of friends on a Saturday afternoon. Initially, I was taken aback to find that we had to queue at the door, especially since we had booked in advance. However, the situation - caused by a late-running 'hen' party - was dealt with efficiently by the staff, and we were shown eventually to... More
