I booked for a group of 12 for my works leaving do. Unfortunately we couldn't get one of their private rooms, but they seated us next to each other across two tables, which worked well. The set menu had good variety and everyone was able to find something that they enjoyed. The starters were served buffet style and were extremely generously sized! The vegetarians on the table were given their own veggie versions of the meat starters, which was a nice touch. The mains were well sized - not massive portions but given the starters, they were spot on. Desserts were nice as well. All in all, excellent value for money at £20 for the food. The staff were friendly and made sure we were kept well topped up with drinks etc. One thing I also really appreciated was the fact they didn't rush us at all. The food was nicely spread out such that the three courses appeared over a two hour period, giving you plenty of time to digest! Overall, everyone was very pleased with the meal. My only slight criticism was that the courses took about ten minutes to serve, so some people were almost finished by the time that others got their food. Given there was only 12 of us, it did seem a little long! However, it didn't particularly detract from what was overall a great evening.

Had an amazing time at Hummingbird for my mums hen party, did the cocktail masterclass followed by a buffet and karaoke! The food and drinks were fantastic, and everyone had a great time! Shoutout to David and Hayley for looking after us and making sure we had the best time, and weren’t wanting for anything, would definitely go again.

Came here for a pre-theatre meal with my sister who is allergic to gluten. I asked about gluten-free options when I booked, was told it would be fine, just ask the server. My sister ordered steak and was told that none of the sides were gluten free. After going back to the chef, the server offered mashed potato which was fine. I ordered a chicken burger (chicken breast fillet) with cheese. When it arrived, it was clearly not a chicken fillet but when I said to server I was told it was definitely the chicken burger so I assumed it was some kind of crumbed, processed chicken. I waited while it went back to get cheese put on it then started eating. It was a veggie burger. Sent it back and asked if I could have something made quickly. I was told the chicken burger could be ready in 'about 10 minutes' but I decided not to chance being late for the theatre so watched my sister finish her dinner then asked for the bill. The manager had to remove my burger from the bill. I would have expected him to talk to us at that stage but he just walked back out, leaving the server alone (as he had been the entire time we were there) to continue being waiter/barman to everyone in the place. I asked to speak to him. His manner was very condescending. He claimed not to know anything about what had happened and then acted as though he was doing me a favour by removing the chicken burger (that i never received) from the bill. I ended up buying some crisps from a shop and going to the theatre hungry. I won't be back. Drinks were nice and well-priced and the server worked his butt off, they're the reasons this is not a 1-star review.

Hello EmmaC3814,

Thank you for your review.

We absolutely hold our hands up to the fact that the 'Chickpea Burger' was pressed by the server instead of 'Chicken Burger'. This was an honest mistake and would have been rectified immediately. Unfotunately you declined as you only had 1 hour to eat before going to the theatre - again we are very sorry for this server error.

The burger was removed from the bill (as you didn't eat it) and the 50% Tastecard discount was added to the remaining food items on the bill. The manager you spoke to did not mean to be condesening in the slightest and offered two complimentary cocktails to apologise for the mistake with the burger. This was also declined and instead you preferred him to clear the entire food bill instead. I am afraid we would not be able to do that as the Flat Iron Steak was eaten by your companion, and a 50% discount was already applied to this as well as the additional sides ordered. Neverhteless, we are extremely sorry for the mix up and that you left the venue hungry.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and if you wish to discuss further please get in touch at info@hummingbirdglasgow.co.uk.

Thanks,

Maria Melly
General Manager

We visited the Hummingbird for something to eat before a concert . We had picked here as they took our tastecard that gives you 50% off across all courses so to be honest we weren’t expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. We got there and a young guy ( Nathan) showed us to a table , he was friendly cheery and looked like he really enjoyed his job . He took our cocktail orders ( with certain cocktails half price sun-frid and included my favourite pornstar martini ) cocktails were fab and at £3.50 each a bargain . We ordered a starter haggis Bon bons which were delicious then steak with chips and cherry tomatoes . The steak was cooked perfectly and cut through like butter with an amazing taste and the cherry tomatoes were so tasty . Nathan brought us more cocktails and even when there was a wee mix up he corrected it right away . The hummingbird itself has a great atmosphere and decor and we would highly recommend it for a meal, drink party . We will deginely visit again , just hope Nathan is on again with his fab service
