We spent Hogmannay at the Blythswood. The menu was excellent, there were 4 of us and 2 of the party were French. The fact they managed to have their fillets and Chateubriand cooked the way they liked is a testament to the skill and attention of the chef. At no time were we rushed - we left the premises at 1.30 when our taxi arrived to take us home - arrived at 7.30. My only criticism is that as I am not a dessert lover, there should be alternatives for savoury lovers like myself. The French were bemused that cheese came after dessert but that made the non French laugh more ... each to their own!
We have been to the Blythswood a few time before and this is the first time I would have given a 5 overall. In the past it would be nearer a 3 for the food but five for the establishment - it certainly has a certain elegance about the place. Staff have always been an asset as non obtrusive and can't do enough for the customer.
Myself and my husband joined our good friends here for our Festive Meal on 29th November 2013. This is the second time we have been here and Blythswood was equally as fabulous as last time. From the minute you walk in the atmosphere, friendliness of staff and the fantastic food lives well upto its 5 stars. Blythswood is very opulent however has a very relaxed atmosphere. Will definately be back and would recommend any of their experiences as a gift or a little treat to yourself.
I brought my boyfriend to the Jazz session on a Sunday afternoon for his birthday. The food was incredible and the atmosphere was one of a kind thanks to the brilliant jazz band. We will definitely be visiting again.
I received a gift voucher for afternoon tea for two, I had never been here before, but I will definitely be back. Staff were so helpful and very welcoming. I would recommend to anyone.
Took my 84yr old gran for afternoon tea. She was treated like a queen and made to feel very special. The staff were friendly and kind and the food was deliciously tasty. Im returning over the festive period to treat my gran, mum, sister and four aunts. Can't wait.
