We went along for Easter Monday lunch. I had a Hi Life dining card so ended up with £10 off. I noticed though on the website that if you are local you can get a loyalty card which gives 20% off meals and 10% off drink, which is great! My husband had a burger with curly fries and I had... More

Saturday lunch. Very friendly and attentive service. The food was average. The cheese burger was fine but the chips were nothing startling? The buttermilk chicken was completely insipid as was the ham hock soup.

We visited as a whole crowd and we were given the lovely glass room downstairs. The service was very good and the food was great and very good value for money. Excellent kids menu too.

Visited with my daughter today. Our Afternoon Tea was of very high quality. Beautifully prepared sandwiches, fresh and tasty. Warm scones and delicious cakes. Staff happily adapted our selection to cater for food allergy and were very pleasant and attentive. Excellent value for money too...boxed up what we couldn't eat. We'll definately be back.

If you want a quieter lunch. This isn't the place. It's a bar with soft play area. Our order wasn't overly complicated - NO goats cheese , but still they managed to get it wrong. The fish, described as haddock, was nothing short of disgusting and tepid at best in temperature. I'd be embarrassed to serve it. The overall service... More

This bar is beautifully decorated inside - makes you forget you are not in Merchant city or the West End. The drinks are not the cheapest but worth it if you are looking for somewhere nice to go nearby. They often have music, including an open mic night for children which I believe is on a Sunday.

Description
Situated on the Southside of Glasgow, in the bustling area of Shawlands, join us for a drink, a bite to eat and service that stands out when compared to other pubs and restaurants in the area. If you work, shop or live in the Southside area, then The Waverley Tea Room is here to offer you a great venue for drinking, dining and above all relaxing. We are an excellent venue whether there are just a couple of you, or you are looking for a group booking.

With the largest open air terrace and beer garden this side of the Clyde, we are specialists when it comes to al fresco. If the Glasgow weather is a little too fresh for you, then we have our stylish restaurant situated in our glass conservatory, or the cosy interior of the traditional Tea Room, where you can sit, relax and be overwhelmed by our floor to ceiling wine gantry.

Whatever the time of day you visit, you'll find a welcome with a smile.

From all of us here at The Waverley Tea Room, we look forward to seeing you.
