the trading house [glasgow]
Last Sunday we were very kindly invited to try out the Sunday roast at The Trading House in Glasgow. I had never been before although I knew of the place so wasn’t really sure what to expect, I was looking forward to it after seeing their menu online and it was definitely worth getting excited for!
Not only is the place amazing to look at, it has a lovely atmosphere and the staff gave us a very warm welcome. We were given a table with enough room to have the pram near us and quickly brought a high chair – I hate it when places take ages or leave you to get it yourself. Abel was kept amused with some colouring stuff and the place mat which he was able to colour in, I may have coloured some of mine it too…
So as I mentioned we had the Sunday Roast, the waitress pointed out they were large portions before we looked at sides, good job as they were huge but not bad huge. I got the chicken the boys got the roast beef, the adult meals also came with cauliflower cheese, Abel stole mine of course. The whole meal was amazing, plenty veg, stuffing, a MASSIVE yorkie and loads of gravy! Abel scoffed his, he didn’t manage to finish but he definitely enjoyed it.
To drink I tried out one of their mocktails, Mr did ask if I wanted a wine but I had the WORST drooth ever. I had the raspberry, grape & elderflower it was so good, I could have drank 3. Mr had a pint of course and Abel had an apple juice as a treat. Mr was impressed by the book of ales, although he got a draft beer he wants to go back and try out some of the different ones.
We somehow managed to squeeze dessert in, as you do, when I seen the menu it was so hard to pick, I eventually settled for the baked chocolate cookie chip dough, Mr had an Irish coffee and Abel had ice cream. The cookie dough dessert was amazing, definitely not healthy but wow it was so good, I did manage to finish it as well. Mr says his Irish coffee was amazing, he hadn’t had one before but loves coffee and really enjoyed it. Abel’s ice cream was the cutest thing ever and his face lit up when he seen it, he had so much fun putting the “sand” in the bucket.
Overall I would definitely go back, for drinks/dinner/with kids/without kids it would suit them all. I loved the live music that was on, especially when they done a Brucey song. The only negative I can think of is the steps at the entrance, not so pram friendly but if there are 2 of you it isn’t a lot to carry it up, if there is another access I couldn’t see it 🙁 I was so surprised at how child friendly the place was from the great food he got instead of the usual generic crap most places serve to the changing room having a little basket of things you may have forgot (nappies ect) it made it really enjoyable for all of us and not the stressful thing going out for dinner with a child can be.
If you want the check them out further then have a look on their website, hope you check it out!
