About The Green Room - Cathedral House
Our new go-to restaurant
We had a warm welcome from staff with prompt attention for order. There was a delay in serving food but waitress Yas apologised and offered a drink on the house. Portions were huge and the Cullen skink was equivalent to a main course. Cauliflower pakora and ham hough starters were also plentiful. We all had the chicken for main which was cooked to perfection. Staff were attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. Would highly recommend and we will certainly be returning.
Scottish dining in the city centre
Based in a 19th century building that is now a boutique inn, The Green Room at Cathedral House serves up hearty and traditional Scottish dishes. Boasting Glasgow Cathedral as its backdrop, this former choir practice hall has now been transformed into a charming and elegant café bar. As well as a menu of locally locally sourced, seasonal cuisine, you can sample a selection of beers and ales from local breweries, plus an evolving wine list.
Traditional and seasonal Scottish cuisine
At The Green Room, you can dine on comforting and rustic national classics with a cheffy edge. Menus shift with the calendar, but expect starters such as gin-cured salmon on toasted sourdough with cucumber ribbons & dill mayonnaise; pressed ham hock with red onion marmalade, baby apple and herb toast or oatcakes, and Shetland mussels steamed in Thistly Cross Cider.
Mains on offer might include Macsween haggis with clapshot and buttered greens served with an Arran mustard & whisky sauce; 6oz beef burger with Mull cheddar, chilli relish and hand-cut chips, or vegan ‘Shepherd’s Pie’ with braised puy lentils, roast butternut squash, olive oil mash and seasonal greens.
For pudding, expect indulgences like creme brûlée with raspberry compote and home-style shortbread biscuit or date sponge with salted caramel & vanilla ice cream.
Heart of Glasgow’s most historic area
The Green Room is based in one of the city’s best sightseeing spots. As well as being right next door to the stunning Medieval cathedral, you will also be a stroll away from the 15th century Provand’s Lordship (the oldest house in Glasgow), and the Necropolis with its sweeping views.
