Glad had booked a table as very busy. We ordered soup and sandwich - very impressed with quality (and chunky chips worth it). Service a bit slow but it was very busy with lots of big tables.

I visited the House as a birthday treat with my friend. We looked all over the house, including out on the terrace which has stunning views over Ibrox! We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant. Most enjoyable day out.

Check their website as it does weddings also and the exhibition changes its opening times upto a week at a time. The cafe has separate opening times and is open to the public more frequent.

Sorry I can answer your question. I was leading a tour, which means the bus driver got us there, with the help of a local who served as a private guide. I bet it's really beautiful there now that summer has arrived. Enjoy!
