The Buttery is one of Glasgow's finest treasures. You must eat here before you leave the city, even if you have to push around your budget a bit. Experience regional cuisine served up fresh and wonderful. You will not be disappointed!
The Buttery describes itself as “one of Glasgow’s oldest, most enduring and celebrated restaurants, well known for its relaxed atmosphere and unique interior of oak panelling, stained glass and wonderful mahogany and marble bar.”
The Buttery serves up British and Scottish seafood in a traditional and innovative way, and offers both a set menu and a la carte. The set menu comes with a glass of wine.
The Buttery is known for its unpretentious, friendly and attentive service, who are highly knowledgable about the dishes and how they are prepared.
The tone of the atmosphere is pitch-perfect: decor is elegant and the music sets the mood, making you feel like you’re somewhere special but without being uncomfortable or out of place.
The menu is diverse, high in quality, and also in value. he midweek 5pm deal of 2 courses and a glass of wine for £16 is just great. Start with the poached salmon pieces in tempura batter. Try the wood pigeon, the scallops, the Lemon Sole, or the Sea Bass. There is an excellent wine selection at reasonable prices. Plus vegetarian options!
The Lunch & Pre/Post Theatre menu, incredibly sumptuous looking, is priced fairly at 2 Courses £16.00, 3 Courses £18.50
The Buttery may be located outside the city’s center but do not let this deter you from making a trip to one of Glasgow’s finest.
Two Fat Ladies opened a second restaurant on 2004 in the heart of the City. The City Centre menu is primarily seafood. There is also a West End location and, located in the basement of Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery, is The Shandon Belles.
