In much the same way that Alien Vs Predator brought together two of the best celluloid baddies in one action-packed film, Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery represents the happy marriage of two Glasgow dining institutions. The Buttery and all its beautiful Victorian interiors is almost certainly Glasgow’s oldest surviving restaurant while the Two Fat Ladies group is one of the city’s best loved families of restaurants. Since coming together in culinary matrimony in 2007, they have made beautiful music together.
OK, it’s all getting a bit flowery around here but you get the picture. It’s a lovely, historic restaurant and they do great grub, often with a fish and seafood theme.
The menu changes regularly but the sort of dish you might find at Two Fats at the Buttery includes a chicken and leek terrine with a brandy and prune compote; a pan fried fillet of Shetland salmon set on curly kale and citrus cream and desserts such as a warmed apple tart served with vanilla Anglaise.
The restaurant is always up for awards, often for the standard of the service, and it has garnered lots of cracking reviews not just from the papers but also from hundreds of 5pm users. ‘Never lets you down’, ‘highly recommended’, ‘friendly staff’ and ‘excellent food’ are a few of the comments left by customers who have eaten there recently.
