  • We had such a lovely first experience here. We had lunch, and couldn't have been more pleased and impressed. The place is lovely, and located in a gorgeous park as well. The interior is just as beautiful as the exterior. It's such a cozy place, with fairy lights, great food (especially great value for money), and great staff. Will definitely come back. We loved everything about it.
  • Beautiful venue for a wedding. We were married here a few years ago and it was an amazing experience. The venue is beautifully designed, with some intricate artwork on display and available to buy. The house itself is set within a lovely green area with a stunning private garden. A hidden gem 5 minutes from the city centre and Ibrox stadium.a great place to visit for lunch or dinner also.
