About The Pipers' Tryst
Booked for the pre-theatre Market Menu before going to the theatre. Four of us had a items from the Market Menu and one had the Gluten free menu. All the meals were delicious and a nice choice. In particular the staff were commended for the excellent choice of times on the Gluten free menu. A nice atmosphere and we were not hurried in any way by the very pleasant staff. Would recommend and definitely go back.
Can't wait to return
Thanks to all the staff for a lovely pre concert dinner. The food was amazing, the atmosphere very comfortable and welcoming and we'll definitely be back.
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.
