Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers
Despite the name, cowboys, ten gallon hats and six shooters are seldom found at The Western Club Restaurant.
However, you will definitely find gourmet food, elegant surroundings and polished service. Today’s Big Deal gives you the chance to experience it for yourself with a three-course fine dining meal and glass of fizz.
This would either make a perfect gift, or meal with your other half.
Of course, it would also make a generous Christmas present.
The Western Club Restaurant in Royal Exchange Square has been a Glasgow institution since Regency times, when Glasgow was the second city of the Empire and many a local merchant or adventurer would pop in for a little refreshment.
These days The Western Club combines its refined heritage with an airy and bright modern ambience.
The restaurant in the Club Dining Room on the first floor offers a sophisticated and welcoming environment for superb fine dining.
Available Monday to Fridays at varying times, today’s Big Deal invites you to a three course meal for two at The Western Club Restaurant.
A glass of specially selected Western Club Fizz for each diner is included.
Menus at the Western Club combine the finest seasonal Scottish produce with classic French cooking techniques. Maybe that’s why The List Eating and Drinking Guide described it as ‘precise, satisfying food’.

Soup of the day (v)
Atlantic prawn, crayfish cocktail, Marie Rose sauce, lime
Duo of Scottish salmon, avocado, crisp capers

Customers have been generous with their praise for the Western Club on TripAdvisor, including the following recent reviews, edited for length:
‘The setting is absolutely fabulous overlooking Royal Exchange Square, the restaurant is immaculate…’
‘...all the staff were so friendly, drink service was super quick, attentive in between meals and with topping up wine etc for my other half, food service was impeccable too. Food came out really quick, presentation was very nice and it was very nicely cooked! We had 3 courses each and every dish was amazing… and I can honestly say, I’ve not felt this satisfied with a restaurant in so many aspects in a while… thank you for a very pleasant evening, we will most definitely be back.’
‘...really nice atmosphere… quality restaurant from the decor to the table. Very nice.’
Christmas gift idea
