The Buttery is one of the most well known restaurants in Scotland - a real Glaswegian institution! We took over in 2007 to create Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery. It has the relaxed old-school feel of a by-gone era. The atmosphere is unrivalled - you just won't want to leave!
One of Glasgow’s best-loved and most enduring restaurants, the Buttery has gone from strength to strength since becoming part of the Two Fat Ladies group. The interior celebrates formal Scottish luxury, with oak and mahogany, stained glass and tartan carpet bringing a unique intimate feel to the bar and the dining room, whilst still keeping a relaxed atmosphere.
The menu offers the sort of top quality cooking that the Buttery is renowned for, and as you would expect from Two Fat Ladies, Scottish seafood and produce is prepared with respect and skill. The Grand Dessert, a greatest hits of their dessert menu, is heaven for anyone with a sweet tooth!

Superb meal in a beautiful restaurant with excellent friendly service. Best scallops I’ve had for a long time, perfectly cooked. The salmon with fennel and orange salad was also delicious and my pudding of coconut parfait and chargrilled pineapple was bliss. Ordering the petit fours was sheer greed but completely worth it - even if we couldn’t finish them all. Highly recommended

We had our Christmas Eve lunch there and everything was exceptional. Starting with the staff who were very attentive. The decor was lovely and the food choices were perfect. We would most highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

One of the few restaurants in Glasgow which has stood the test of time. Consistently serving excellent food in lovely surroundings. The staff go the extra mile to be friendly and helpful in every way possible.

Got off to a poor start when the staff didn't seem to know that we had reserved our table, continued downwards when we were sat at a cold table next to the front door in a very empty front part of the restaurant. Meanwhile the restaurant bustled towards the back. After trying to heat the area with a wall heater that appeared broken, the staff offered us another table in the busy side of the restaurant which was warm and which had some atmosphere .... No one had left since we arrived so i am really unclear why we didn't get given this table in the first place.

We were in the restaurant about 25 mins before our food order was taken -but only after I asked for this to be done....felt like since we moved table we had been forgotten...

The food was quite nice and pretty good value (set 3 course lunch menu) and the service improved as the meal progressed although it was still pretty slow....... it was all a bit disappointing really......Unfortunately i don't think we will hurry back....

The venison starter was overcooked, pear and walnut salad bland. The sauces overall were poor. Hake as the main course could also have been cooked less. We could not mention these things at the time as we had a business guest with us.

Amazing find, behind a non descript front you enter into an delightfully classy tradition Scottish brasserie, the kilted staff welcome you and make the whole experience a delight. The food is fresh and tasty on par with any top international venue. the menus are creative and the scallops to die for.

The old style ambience of the Buttery is still lovely. The lunch menu was very good value and of good quality. We were able to add courses from the a la carte too. The apple strudel and rum raisin ice-cream was delicious.
The tables towards the rear of the restaurant are less attractive and should only be used if the front is packed (which it wasn't) but the service was good.
