Lovely place to go with a partner for a romantic lunch or tea or women friends. Was very busy but we got free drinks in way of an apology. The house was closed for a wedding but bought a few things from the shop that were a good price. Out of three other places I had tea and scones in... More

I live quite near here and had never really been before, but my sister and i decided to go for an early lunch. The earliest you can have lunch is 12noon because that is when the kitchen opens for hot food, but you can go earlier for tea and cake. I would recommend booking a table in advance because it...

Booked the set lunch through 5pm which turned out to be the same price had I booked directly other than the complementary drink. The chicken and puy lentils on mushrooms etc was very good indeed. The panna cotta very good too as was the cheeseboard. Good value and would certainly recommend. Service very good too.

The food and the service are really some of the best in glasgow. All home made and beautifully presented. The staff are a delight too. It's my local eating place for a lunch time treat, and on the occasional warm sunny day you might get a table outside in the lovely gardens! Just a shame they don't do evening meals... More

A nice place to come for lunch or an afternoon tea, as well as a visit to the House itself; worth booking ahead as it can get busy. Attractive gift shop next... More

The view from the view room is amazing. If you want to capture the essence of Charles Rennie Macintosh, this is THE place to visit. All aspects of the venue are stunning. There is a lovely tea room and the food is delicious. A must for anyone looking for some cultural history.
