Two Fat Ladies 
 at The Buttery

A true Glasgow institution

Discover the timeless charm of a true Glasgow institution, The Buttery. Established in 1870, The Buttery stands as one of Scotland's most beloved and renowned restaurants and is thought to be Glasgow’s oldest culinary establishment. In 2007, we took the reins and transformed it into 'Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery,' breathing new life into this historic gem. Prepare to step into a bygone era, where the relaxed, old-school ambience will wrap you in its warm embrace, leaving you reluctant to bid farewell.

Immerse yourself in the heart of Glasgow's culinary scene as you enter The Buttery, an iconic destination that has flourished since joining the Two Fat Ladies group. Adorned with oak and mahogany, stained glass and tartan carpeting, the interior exudes formal Scottish luxury, creating an intimate setting of familiarity and ease.

Often coined as a fine dining establishment, we prefer not to be confined by labels. At The Buttery, we strive to create an atmosphere where guests feel truly welcomed, comfortable, and immersed in the vibrant energy of a bustling Scottish restaurant. Think of us as the epitome of relaxed dining, where the finest Scottish ingredients take centre stage.

The restaurant is all on the one level and wheelchair accessible. Our toilets however have small steps leading into them and the female cubicles have a narrow entrance.

Deliciously decadent

Our dishes showcase the best that Scotland has to offer, celebrating outstanding seasonal ingredients prepared with the love and care that our guests have come to expect from The Buttery.

Tradition lies at our very core, and we hold it dear to our hearts. From the Scottish-infused decor to our team's attire and, of course, the food.

Our dedicated team aims to ensure that each guest feels not only welcome but also thoroughly enjoys their time with us. It's this commitment to exceptional hospitality that keeps many faces returning for years.

The finest Scottish ingredients

Under the leadership of Head Chef Stephen Johnson, our culinary team utilises seasonal ingredients. In our commitment to catering to all tastes and preferences, we offer a separate vegetarian and vegan menu alongside our set lunch and A la Carte offerings. Gluten-free options are also clearly outlined, as we strive to accommodate our guests' diverse dietary requirements.

The Buttery eagerly awaits your visit. We open our doors six days a week, reserving Mondays for a well-deserved rest (except on bank holidays). Come join us for a delightful lunch service every day and, of course, an unforgettable dinner experience each evening. It's worth noting that our final sittings are at 9pm nightly.

While advanced booking is not mandatory, we strongly recommend securing your reservation promptly, as we find ourselves near fully booked week on week.

We extend a warm invitation for you to join us soon, enjoying a meal in the most iconic restaurant in the city.

The team cannot wait to welcome you in, and you can make a booking right here.
