Surprising place! The restaurant at this venue is large, busy and enjoyable. Service is quick and friendly and the food was excellent. Probably best as a lunch time venue. Enjoyed it and will return.

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely day here last week and couldn't recommend it more! Lovely display of artwork and very easy to navigate! The tearoom at the end is to be highly recommended!

Well worth a visit. Built from the famous architect/designer's plans, it's a beautiful building with an excelelnt restaurant and elegant gardens. It's used for functions such as weddings as well as a lovely place to eat out.

Well, there are some places in Glasgow to get an impression about Rennie Macintosh. However, at this place I had the feeling that he "touched" me. Although a reconstruction, it gives you the feeling how an art lover with aim for a consistent styling would...More

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.

Sorry I can answer your question. I was leading a tour, which means the bus driver got us there, with the help of a local who served as a private guide. I bet it's really beautiful there now that summer has arrived. Enjoy!
