'Tryst review'

Surprised we had not heard of this restaurant before considering its quality. We were initially a little apprehensive about booking it as we wanted to ensure that our visiting friends enjoyed a good meal. No worries on that score right from the word go. We were welcomed warmly and shown to our table without a fuss. Although the restaurant was very busy we received first class service and everyone was delighted with the quality of food selected. The wine which formed part of the meal deal was the restaurant's own excellent house wine and not some brought in cheaper offering. A thoroughly good night was enjoyed by all and we cannot wait to go back.

Friendly Scottish restaurant in the city centre

Located in the Cowcaddens area of Glasgow city centre, The Pipers’ Tryst is a cosy Scottish restaurant in the National Piping Centre on McPhater Street. The converted church also houses a museum and heritage centre as well as a bagpipe shop, and is a popular venue for weddings and events. The restaurant is handy for the nearby theatre venues as well as Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, so is ideal for a pre-show meal or intimate dinner. With a modern decor and a welcoming ambience, The Pipers’ Tryst showcases quality Scottish dishes made with locally sourced produce.

A relaxed dining experience & something for everyone

The restaurant’s menus offer enough variety to cater to all tastes, and offer a children’s menu for younger diners. Haggis, naturally, is often on the menu and served with neeps and tatties – vegetarians can even get in on the action with a lentil & bean version of this famous dish.

Other Scottish favourites on the menu can include items like the macaroni cheese (with Arran cheddar & roast cherry tomatoes, or bacon & spring onions); the fish supper with hand cut chips, mushy peas & tartare sauce; the cullen skink soup; and those with a sweet tooth may leap at the chance to try Scotland’s traditional dessert, cranachan.
