Two Fat Ladies 
 at The Buttery

A real Glasgow institution

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!


Changes at the restaurant

Due to COVID-19, we have had to make some changes to the restaurant set up for both staff and guest benefit, listed below, and we would be most grateful for your support.

We have adjusted our table plan so as to ensure that all governmental social distancing regulations are met, and would request your co-operation in adhering to the recommended social distancing whilst moving around and entering the restaurant.

Our booking system has been amended so as to limit the number of guests arriving in the restaurant at one time. All tables will be held for 30 minutes however we may be unable to honour your reservation if you are further delayed with no notice. Please note that we are not currently able to offer pre-dinner drinks in our bar upon arrival as standard. As such, we would again ask for your co-operation in your prompt arrival and (if applicable and discussed at time of booking) departure.

Hand sanitiser has been placed at several locations throughout the building for your convenience and safety. All menus will be sanitised after use.

We will require a list of names of everybody dining in the party as well as contact telephone numbers to be provided a minimum of 24 hours prior to arrival. These details will be stored in adherence to data protection laws and regulations.

We will, for the time being, be limiting table size to 6 guests and would request that governmental guidelines are adhered to regarding mixing of households. A deposit of £10pp will be requested for all tables of 5 and 6 - we would ask for 7 days notice of cancellation in which case the refund would be fully refundable. If less than a week's notice of cancellation is provided a deposit refund will only be processed if we are able to utilise the space for another party.

We look forward to welcoming you and your guests to The Buttery - if you have any concerns about a visit to the restaurant please don't hesitate to let us know. We want your experience to be as comfortable and safe as possible.
