It's such a shame to see all these bad reviews recently, because I really haven't had this experience with Church on the Hill! A few years ago I had my 21st family dinner there and they couldn't be more accommodating, the food was amazing back then and the service was fantastic. I actually hadn't been back since due to the fact I don't really visit that part of Glasgow very often and it's a lot easier for me to just dine in the city centre. When I seen the deal on itison I thought it was a great excuse to go back!!
This was actually going to be my first day leaving the house in a month (I currently have a debilitating illness which has confined me to my bed for the last four weeks) , so I called and made an appointment for the next day and the man on the phone was very polite and chatty.
On the day our table was booked, I took a bad turn and had to rest which meant I couldn't make it for the afternoon. I had a wee bit of trouble getting through to them but once I got through there was a different guy on the line and he was just as lovely. He was very understanding and showed true sympathy for my condition and was more than happy to change the lunch booking to an evening dinner booking.
When we arrived, the staff couldn't be more accommodating, they asked me if I was feeling better and also gave me and my fiancé a booth which was closer to the kitchen so we were kept warmer. They also offered to bring in a heater if we felt uncomfortable which I thought was just so thoughtful of them.
We both ordered the macaroni and had two side orders also. We really loved it, it had loads of flavour and the chunky chips were great as a side.
We left feeling full, satisfied and the next day I was craving more. So I've definitely decided to make that little extra trip now and again to make some repeat visits!
Everyone has different tastes but I wouldn't let the bad reviews put you off. Take a visit and try it out for yourself!!
I also had a wee look on their website and seen that they are going to be opening a function room in the near future. If it has the capacity I'm looking for, it's definitely on the list of viewings for my wedding. If the service is as fantastic as it has been then I can't wait!
