Description: The Bothy is a unique Scottish restaurant located just off Byres Road in the West End of Glasgow. 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.

Staying away on business , five of us decided to try out the Bothy. The food was very much Scottish Bistro and was excellent. Slightly disappointed that there was no grouse on the specials board, as had run out due to its popularity, but we had lovely pieces of lamb rump, and the puddings were all excellent too . Service was very relaxed and customers were allowed to take their time over the meal. Overall a lovely meal.

Dear U411483, firstly let me thank you for taking the time to post a review.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed the atmosphere and the food, sorry the grouse had sold out but hopefully next time you are up we will have it on(season permitting). It has been one of our most popular dishes since the season began.

Hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

Colin

We had a fantastic meal here on a Saturday evening. We booked and got a lovely table. I had chicken stuffed with black pudding served with champ and a delicious jus. The meat was excellent quality and plentiful. We had nice wine and the service was friendly and efficient (if a little disingenuous at times). We really like the setting and the décor, which make for a really cosy atmosphere. I'm looking forward to going back.

Eight golfers showed up on a Saturday night in August with no reservations... good luck. They put two picnic tables togther in the outdoor bar area to serve us and we had had a excellent meal. Our waitress "Jet" was professional and attentive. Food / wine / beer were all excellent... a memorable evening for all of us! I would highlly recommmend Bothy to anyone... just make reservations in advance!

Visited this restaurant on the spur of the moment on a Tuesday night with 3 colleagues. They accomodated us straight away, and the service throughout was great, friendly but professional. We skipped starters and had mains and desserts. The highlight was the grouse which was on the specials menu, and was just beautiful. I had halibut which was nice although ever so slightly overcooked, but the sauce was fantastic. The duck with lentils was also amazing. Overall really tasty food with just the slight error with the fish. The wine was great. We really enjoyed our evening.
