Formerly the RSAC's ballroom, The Restaurant at Blythswood Square is no ordinary city centre hotel restaurant. This 120-cover restaurant and cocktail bar impresses with its high ceilings and grand dimension. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, a place to enjoy delicious seasonally chosen and locally sourced food and inventive cocktails with friends. An experience that is certain to impress Glasgow locals and hotel guests alike. The Salon, a 35 metre lounge located on the first floor of the hotel, is the new place to meet when in Glasgow's city centre. With comfortable sofas, luxurious fabrics and great views, The Salon is an ideal place to meet friends or colleagues whilst enjoying freshly brewed coffee, specially blended teas or for a real treat why not indulge in the finest champagnes or even a whisky or 2! Afternoon Tea takes pride of place in The Salon with its specially designed menu; it is an event everyone wants to experience. Afternoon Tea at Glasgow's Blythswood Square is a guilty pleasure that you will return to indulge in time and time again.
Another real favourite - this venue has character, attitude, and great food. There is a vibrant bar upstairs and warm buzzing bistro downstairs. Menus are quite international in style using finest Scottish produce and often with a bit of humour too. Well worth a visit. I love their strapline...'Think Global Eat Local.'

Colin's Dad was the great Ronnie Clydesdale who we all miss, but the legend lives lives on and The Chip, as it is affectionately known, goes from strength to strength... see entry...so you will be kept busy eating your way around this great city!
At Stravaigin they also specialise in seasonal and unusual cheeses, with a carefully balanced selection provided by their local cheesemonger, George Mewes such as Dunlop Dairy's ' Bonnet' a hard pressed cheese made from Saanen and Toggenburg goats’ milk. This well-known and extremely popular cheese is named after the local town of Stewarton, ‘The Bonnet Toun’, where mills in the town made bonnets for the army regiments. This delicious cheese is perfectly accompanied by homemade knackerbrod and chutney or Heather Hills farm honeycomb.'
