Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2014/15 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2014) edition.

If vintage chic is your choice for a cuppa, look no further than the Butterfly and the Pig's Tearooms. As well as church pews, mismatched flowery china on piles of doilies, and old films showing on the TV, they also offer some of the best cake in Glasgow. Breakfasts are of the traditional variety, including kippers with poached egg and tomato on toast. For lunch there's a big sandwich selection, as well as salads, soup, and a highly recommended warm goat’s cheese on walnut toast with a rhubarb, plum and apple chutney. Do make sure to leave room for a generous wedge of thickly iced cake – served from a vintage glass cake cabinet, of course. Particularly popular is the 'high tea' from 5–8pm, which includes a main meal, sides, cake, and plenty of tea. With its unique décor and delicious food, this is truly a teashop to savour.

I booked a private room for myself and friends so I could celebrate my 30th Birthday, initial correspondence between myself and Gillian at The Tea Rooms was brilliant - she sent over photographs of the private room and a detailed menu.

When I arrived I was blown away with how beautiful the room looked and for me the gluten free options that were available on the menu. A delicious afternoon Tea was served on silver cake stands and washed down with Prosecco, £16 per head was fantastic value for money!!

Thanks to all the staff that helped my day so special!
