As we celebrate the Year of Food and Drink, Scotland’s vibrant second city welcomes all food-lovers with open arms to its multitude of cafes, bistros, restaurants, grills, chip shops and street food stalls. Glasgow really does offer something for everyone with its variety of eateries and food festivals – no one goes hungry in this city! Here are 7 of our top choices:
The Willow Tearooms – Situated in the centre of the city, this Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed building is as beautiful as the tea and cakes! It’s the perfect spot for afternoon tea.
The Ubiquitous Chip – This beautiful restaurant nestled on a pretty cobbled lane has a reputation for its delicious food. The Aberdeen Angus beef is an especially tasty choice!
Rogano Oyster Bar – It is the interior of this place that first grabs your attention. Its glamorous Art Deco style was inspired by the ship The Queen Mary (sister to the Titanic), and your senses will continue to be pampered when you taste the incredible sea-food!
Stereo – Glasgow cuisine caters to all diets and all tastes. At Stereo you can enjoy an impressive range of Vegan delights and organic beers.
The Bothy – On seeing the wooden beams and stone walls of the Bothy you feel as though you’ve left the bustling west-end behind and travelled back in time to a beautiful and homely cottage. The restaurant, hidden down a small lane, serves delicious traditional Scottish food in a cosy yet impressive setting.
The 29 – Though part of a private members’ club, the 29 Restaurant and Bar is open to everyone. The luxurious and glamorous interior translates into high class meals and superb afternoon tea.
The Butchershop – This meat-lovers’ paradise serves 6 varieties of steak as well as burgers made with 28 day-aged Aberdeen Angus beef. It’s a popular place and we can see why!
