Description: The Bothy is a unique Scottish restaurant located just off Byres Road in the West End of Glasgow. Experience a return to Scottish home cooking, the traditional way with the likes of haggis, neeps and tatties, grilled Scottish salmon and steak pie amongst others. No matter how stuffed you are you'll not want to miss dessert with dishes such as pistachio creme brulee or mango and raspberry iced parfait to name but a few.The combination of friendly service and a delicious, hearty menu make The Bothy the perfect location for family and friends to enjoy dinner in welcoming, Scottish surroundings. If you are in a group it won't cost a penny more to hire one of the private rooms just for yourselves.Free wifi access is available every day of the week, ideal if you've got a working lunch or just feel like a nosey on Facebook.

We went on the recommendation of our Brother In Law. The place is off the main thoroughfare on Byres Road and a nice find. The staff were excellent, welcoming without being overbearing, attentive without being too keen or never around when you need them. The haggis pakora was interesting and a first that I had ever seen and ....well...tasted not... More

Such a chilled little place. Food is perfect. The waitress messed up my starter and I ended up having the main size haggis, neeps & tatties as a main. Still I had two main courses hahah. And I only had to pay for one. Lovely staff.. Food is so fresh. Very chilled restaurant to eat in

My daughter treated me to a 60th birthday lunch yesterday. Although it was not the first time I have been there, it will certainly not be the last time. The staff, as always were great and the food, as always was really nice. We had a ball. Thank you, from Angus and my family

We try to visit the Bothy at least once per month and have done for over 2 years. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming, however you can hire one of the function rooms for more formal occasions.
