“Afternoon Tea at Mrs Sloans Cake Salon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

I booked the Sunday afternoon tea experience through itison.com and thought that with it being promoted on their site it might have been a bit busier ( we went at 4pm so might have been busier earlier)

Sloans its self is in a very atmospheric building , and must have some great storys to tell through its time being one of the oldest pubs in glasgow , as you make your way up to the first floor you can imagine the people who have passed through the doors

upon arrival the best china is on the tables and it does help with the atmosphere the waitress will ask if you prefer tea or coffee , we opted for coffee , which is refilled as often as you wish , you can pay a bit extra and have a glass of prosseco

the afternoon tea as can be seen from the pictures I have added are a selection of ham and tomato , salmon ( not the tinned rubbish) and a cheese thing that I did not like , the cakes are nice and the scones are tasty too with nothing dried out

it would have added to the atmosphere of the "vintage" tea if the waitress had been perhaps dressed in a period outfit , however this did not detract from the experience

“Plenty of Charachter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

One of Glasgow's oldest pubs with plenty of character. We visited about 6ish on a warm Thursday evening and though busy, seats were still to be had, so don't let it's popularity put you off. A great venue with a great atmosphere.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Popped into this amazing pub for lunch and of course had to have their famous mac & cheese. I was not disappointed, it was very tasty. Great atmosphere, friendly helpful staff. Prices are very reasonable and portions are big.
If you get the chance have a look upstairs at the other function rooms, it is like stepping back in time. There are functions and events held in the pub throughout the week, such as clelidh nights, jazz music nights, film nights and opera nights and Mrs Sloans High Teas on a Sunday afternoon. They sound delicious and I think I will definitely have to try them out.

“One of the best meals I had in England & Scotland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

I visited the place with a large group coming from different countries and the first thing I noticed was that the staff really remembered what each of us had ordered...the room had a majestic table and the architecture really was well preserved keeping in mind the age of place...

The only local thing I remember after visiting many cities of UK comes from Scotland called "Haggis" which I am truly a fan of now...and all the credit goes to Sloan's for introducing to this recipe which had a Indian touch to it...they made Haggis Pakora...

Not to miss the amazing taste of Guinness beer...
