I visited the House as a birthday treat with my friend. We looked all over the house, including out on the terrace which has stunning views over Ibrox! We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant. Most enjoyable day out.

Visited here recently for a family wedding. It was just perfect. The place, the staff, the day we had was perfectly perfect.

Check their website as it does weddings also and the exhibition changes its opening times upto a week at a time. The cafe has separate opening times and is open to the public more frequent.
