    Best in a long time

    One of the best meals we have had in a long time and excellent value for money via 5pm. Very tasty starters and mains (we were simply too stuffed for dessert but will definitely leave room next time). Have already booked to go back at the end of this month. Very attentive staff and can’t fault our experience at the Buttery, well done guys.

    Definitely returning soon

    We hadn’t been for many years and now I can’t understand why other than the location - you don’t pass the restaurant so you tend to forget it. Staff were lovely and the service excellent. Superb bread served first and set the standard for everything else. Food was excellent value, wine was a bit expensive but overall an experience we plan to repeat very soon. My daughter was offered a substitute dessert from a la carte to suit her dietary requirements.

Outstanding seafood & Scottish luxury

The Buttery is one of Glasgow’s oldest, most enduring and celebrated restaurants, well known for its relaxed atmosphere and unique interior of oak panelling, stained glass and wonderful mahogany and marble bar. Under the hands of the Two Fats team, it has earned plenty of awards and great reviews – not least for the five star quality of the service.

Eating in Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery is pretty special at any time. One of Glasgow’s oldest and best loved venues, every meal here feels like a memorable occasion.

Daily changing menus

Outstanding seafood is of course a strong feature on the menu, but there are also plenty of meaty (and meat-free!) delights.

Individual dishes may vary depending on season and what is available from suppliers but typical starters might be the warm smoked duck salad with a pomegranate vinaigrette or the oak smoked salmon and mini Thai fishcake with a spinach and lime purée.

Typical main courses are the fillets of sole with brown shrimp, lemon and flat leaf parsley butter or the pressed pork belly served with black pudding and Puy lentils.

Leave space for desserts such as the glazed lemon tart with lemongrass scented sorbet or the steamed pear and walnut pudding with caramel ice cream.

Central transport links

Whilst being centrally located on the border between the city centre and the West End, Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery is in a residential area, a two minute walk from Anderston train station. There is ample parking and quick access to the M8 motorway.

The Theatre of Dining at Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery in Glasgow

It is a common belief within the restaurant industry that dining is a type of performance. Here at 5pm, during our visits to various restaurants, we’ve spotted the same sign at the door of several of the kitchens, the last thing the waiting staff see before they go out to the restaurant floor – “Smile. You’re going on stage.”
