    Excellent food and service however a bit quiet and clinical but will still go back.

    Wonderful food and great service

    The food was good as usual. The high standard could be helped by using cloth napkins instead of paper ones.

Heritage restaurant and tearoom in Glasgow city centre

Originally Miss Cranston’s Tearoom since 1903, Mackintosh at the Willow is now a fully restored dining spot where you can enjoy anything from a three-course meal to an elegant afternoon tea. With its Rennie Mackintosh inspired decor conjuring up Art Nouveau chic, plus a roof terrace for sunnier days, this is where to head for a special treat. You can also browse the history exhibition, have a nosy in the souvenir shop or even take a tour. It’s worth noting that this restaurant has its heart in the right place too, as many of its staff are young people from The Prince’s Trust.

Classic Scottish cuisine and traditional afternoon tea

As you would expect, the menu at Mackintosh at the Willow is unabashedly Scottish. Typical mains include The Willow steak pie with slow-cooked beef shin in a rich pie gravy; baked Scottish Salmon with a skirlie crust, and haggis, neeps & tatties with optional whisky sauce (a veggie option is also available). The afternoon tea selection offers a classic take on the great Scottish tradition. Finger sandwiches, scones and cakes baked in-house by the pastry chefs will be served on a three-tiered stand, alongside a pot of loose-leaf tea or freshly brewed coffee. And if you want to be a bit naughty, you can add on fizz, whisky or gin. There is also a children’s menu and even an afternoon tea for little ones.
