A True Glasgow Institution

The Buttery​

Est 1870

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.
