Dinner reservations for 2 needed?

My husband and I will be in Glasgow for a Fri-Mon. Will we need to make dinner reservations in advance for us - we'll be there in June? We don't have any restaurants in mind yet, but just trying to get a feel for whats needed, as it will be a weekend. I'm guessing pubs aren't necessary, but nicer places might be?

Sunday tends to be quieter but Fri/Sat does require bookings for some places.

Until you know where you are going difficult to say.

Agree, the best places mainly require advance booking as it is the most popular time for locals to eat out, especially the peak time of 7-9pm

Hi Glasgow has some great restaurants and is always busy at weekends. I usually book restaurants via top table. They show you availabity and confirm by email. Good luck

I always book via 5pm.co.uk as it costs nothing amd they provide menus reviews and special offers plus its easy to narrow down by location and cuisine. I've been know to sit in a pub and book a table for dinner on my phone so I can leave decisions to the last minute. Though invariably there are less options when booking late.
