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 had a wonderful experience at this little place, the meal was delicious, our waiter, a handsome young man, dressed in a kilt was friendly, informative and attentive without being a pest. The general appearance is pretty and comfortable, toilets were clean and fresh. The only minor thing that could maybe be looked at, is the music, it was kind... More

Always visit the bothy when in glasgow, has beautiful ambience and delightful food. Ask for one of the couch tables, they are less loud even when busy. Unfortunately on our recent trip staff were less friendly however this hardly distracts from all the other positives (my vegetarian risotto was amazing).

The works Christmas Lunch can often be a tedious affair with mass produced overcooked food, however our visit to The Bothy was most enjoyable, with a delicious, varied menu (which included steak with no supplement!) The staff were lovely and very accommodating, even when we changed our numbers at the last minute. Overall service was excellent.... will definitely be back!!

We had an amazing night at The Bothy in Glasgow. Let me start by saying how reasonably priced the menu is. The haggis starter was outstanding and the perfectly cooked lamb main was unbelievably good. The restaurant has a great atmosphere, helped in no uncertain terms by the friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. The girl who recommended... More

Booked a meal for 21 people at the Bothy, so they gave us the private room upstairs. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the food was absolutely great. The staff were so friendly and even for 21 people, barely had to ask who's food was who's. Thanks for a great evening.

My good friend from Glasgow treated mum and I to a meal in here, he always knows all the best places hidden away. The decor was cosy and very festive with decorations and part wood interior, I also liked the quirky staff uniforms....black tshirt and little kilt style for waiters and waitresses. I opted for the steak and mushroom pie... More
