Loads to see and do whether with friends, young children or by yourself. Great museums, parks, shopping, pubs and places to eat.

I would like to know why there has been no hot chocolate available at this restaurant for the past four weeks despite the matter being reported to McDonald's and their franchisee Andrew Gibson. Is this the standard of service we can now expect under the Mcdonald name? I am having no success in my enquiries.

Really easy! Hop on the Subway from Buchanan Street or St Enoch and get off at Hillhead. Come out the station turn left and you're in the heart of the west end. You'll love it :)
