Glasgow dining history
The Cabin first opened in 1890 which makes it one of Glasgow’s oldest restaurants. It became known for its singing staff in the 1990s and, although the faces may change, the songs continue. Expect sing-along classics, powerful ballads and some contemporary rocking numbers.
The 2012/13 edition of The List Eating and Drinking Guide has praised The Cabin highlighting its ‘top cooking and lots of character’.
Handy for Partick Station and the underground, The Cabin has also wowed 5pm users. This is what a recent customer wrote after a meal there:
‘A great find. Lovely restaurant, tucked away in the wilds of Whiteinch, but could rival any city centre eaterie in terms of food quality, presentation and taste. Service was great too :)’ Rating 4.8/5
