    Excellent service and views over looking Glasgow!

    I bought my husband the Edenmill Gin afternoon tea for this beautiful hotel back in July. The restrictions meant that we couldn’t be served alcohol but were allowed to either take away an Edenmill gin cocktail or have our soft drinks that we purchased for free. The staff were amazing , all very helpful and pleasant staff. The afternoon tea was amazing! One of the best we have had in Glasgow for a long time. No boring sandwiches in this afternoon tea! It had a lovely brioche buns with duck, chicken strips with waffles , choux bacon buns and fab cous cous! The presention was excellent! I won’t tell you about the desserts! All I will say is , it’s a fabulous venue! Don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself! Please support your local hotels and bars safely. You definitely not be disappointed !

    Delicious Food!

    Went for dinner with my husband and took advantage of the 50% off a la carte menu! All the food was amazing! The side of seasoned chips were just awesome! As we visited during COVID-19 restrictions the restaurant was quiet but the service was great and the staff member serving was very friendly & attentive! Atmosphere was good considering no music was allowed to be played. Will be back again once we are out of post Christmas lockdown!
