Other than being unusually quiet on a Sunday evening during Celtic Connections, the food and service were both top notch. My group ordered fish and chips, steak pie, a burger, a cajun chicken sandwich and a Thai vegetarian curry. Desserts were Auchentoshan Parfait and Sticky Toffee Pudding. A house soup and Cullen Skink were also ordered. All of the food was duly scoffed with clean plates returned to the kitchen. Scrumptious and filling food. Cheery, welcoming service. Nothing was too much trouble. People do make Glasgow!!! 10/10 and looking forward to our next visit.

Oh my goodness where to start, this beautiful quirky bar/restaurant/comfy hotel is just the best. The atmosphere is brilliant, the owner so welcoming and the staff were amazing. They were so friendly and funny making us feel very relaxed. We arrived early and treated so nicely, had a beautiful lunch, the food is so tasty, brill portions, great choice and most of all served with ease nothing was a bother. Our rooms were perfect so clean and very personal, so so comfortable. I will say, if you get a chance to stay at Babbity Bowster, just do it, we loved everything from the background music to the service from all the staff ........... the location is just perfect for central Glasgow. We recommend Babbity Bowster for sure...........you would not regret it. Thank you for making our stay very special. Fiona

Good traditional Scottish pub. We were in on a Wednesday early evening, there was a fiddle band playing Scottish music, not too loud that you couldn't speak but just a nice volume. The food was excellent, very fresh and tasty, I would particularly recommend the chilli nachos.

Stayed for 1 night at the end of a tour. Room was lovely and quiet considering the pub being busy downstairs. I would only say the room I was in was very dark even with all the lights on. Brighter light bulbs would be good especially in the main light. I ate my evening meal and breakfast in the pub downstairs and the staff were lovely and accommodating. Food was nice typical pub grub. Standard breakfast is continental. Excellent location in the centre and off the main street so there is limited traffic noise.
