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.

Dinner for three Saturday evening. Very nice setting and good service. We had Cullen Skink, Haggis, Duck and Sticky Toffee Pudding. Cullen Skink very creamy, but had it fresher elsewhere. Haggis presented at as a tower with mash. Can also be had better. Duck - no crispy skin, not very much taste and we got a feeling of Assembly line. Not refined food, more Cafe-style. Big portion of Pudding, not very elegant. A bit underwhelmed by the food, but nice evening with the finish of some whisky.

Nice friendly spot with tasty food. Very helpful staff. Not cheap but worth it as a treat. Some dishes are more genuine local cuisine than others.

Enjoyed a lovely late afternoon lunch here on a dull rainy day. Food was delicious, Duck was cooked to perfection. Staff were very pleasant, nothing was too much trouble for them. There’s a lovely ambience here and a mixed bunch of diners. Have been before a good few times and will certainly be returning. Considering coming for Christmas Lunch with friends.

Booked ahead and had plenty of table space in this delightful restaurant. Excellent menu choice although I was disappointed that my toasted ciabatta bread was burnt slightly but this created the singed taste to infuse the salmon and broth. Sticky toffee pudding portion was enough for two people but hubby already tucking into mascerated strawberry creme and pistachio ice cream. Wine was a Malborough Sauvignon Spy Valley which wasn’t dry enough for our taste but drank and enjoyed regardless. I would recommend this restaurant.
