    4th visit this month....says it all!!

    Working my way through the menu, not had a dish yet that hasn't impressed. This time was nachos and then haggis. The nachos are described as 'small plate' but could easily be a main course. The haggis is a proper sized portion well presented. Service was quick which is ideal when restricted for time.

Welcoming bar and restaurant in Merchant City

Named after a legendary 19th century Glasgow glutton, Rab Ha’s is a welcoming bar and restaurant with rooms on Hutcheson Street. In the summer of 2017, new owners gave the much-loved Merchant City institution a thoughtful refurbishment. The very opposite of a bland chain, Rab Ha’s is an independent, family-run with business with oodles of character. Visitors can look forward to a cosy and tranquil space with stripped stone walls, an open fire and wood panelling in the bar and restaurant.

Quirky modern bar menu

Alongside lots of other choices, mince and tatties, haggis and Cullen skink all give the menu at Rab Ha’s a slight Scottish flavour. More exotic dishes might be the Thai broth mussels or the plate of serrano ham with chorizo, olive tapenade and pecorino cheese. Popular main courses include the bangers and mash, steak pie and the salmon teriyaki with pickled ginger and jasmine rice.
The menu is good fun. The veggie haggis referred to as the grass-eating variety while chips are, perhaps inevitably, known as Glasgow salad. The hummus and pitta starter is marked as ‘for keep fit types’. We suspect that the original Rab Ha would approve.

Merchant City transport links and attractions
