About The Pipers' Tryst
Superb in every way
Excellent service, menu, location, atmosphere. Beautiful food, so well presented and so tasty! Special mention for the fondue starter, which is incredible, the bread lovely and fresh (sometimes 'croutons' or 'crusty bread' just means 'stale', but not here!). The service is truly commendable, exceptionally polite, friendly and unobtrusive. Great job by the whole team.
Booked 5pm deal but I decided on alc because I love Cullen skink. I was not disappointed. Fabby! Spicy lamb meatballs are new on menu according to lovely waitress. Not too spicy, a nice gentle heat. Hubby’s hot smoked salmon and lamb rump also perfect!!
Finally, service was fantastic.
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.
