5pm HQ is based in Glasgow City Centre so we've got plenty of options! We asked around the office to see if the staff had any favourites.

“Urban Bar & Brasserie is my favourite restaurant in Glasgow City Centre. The service is first class, the food in tasty, I love the basil marinated breast of chicken with fettucine and sunblushed tomato cream. Also, it’s quite spacious so no one sits too close to your table! “

“Slouch is great. It's just a good pub with nice staff and good music. It’s comfortable place to chill out in and the food is just good pub stuff. There are two menus so you can get something more substantial or just some snacks depending on how hungry you are. I eat gluten and dairy free and they have a good few options; decent salads, chicken wings, etc. Sometimes getting gluten/dairy free bar food can be tough.”

"I honestly could be here all day talking about why I love the Arches. Let's start with the food; every time I have eaten there it has been excellent and the regularly changing menu always throws up imaginative dishes. Recently, I tried the ‘veggie fish and chips’ - battered halloumi! Amazing idea and it tasted fantastic. My partner always goes for the burger which he says is the best in Glasgow. Next let's talk about the ambience. I absolutely love the decor in the Arches; it's so disctintive, with the curved ceiling, industrial lights and flying saucer lampshades hanging from the ceiling. Last but not least, the value for money. £10.95 for two courses and a glass of wine. In my opinion, the portion sizes and quality of food make this the best value dining deal in Glasgow. And did I mention the milkshakes and cocktail menu? Like I said, I could be here all day...”

"Charcoals Indian restaurant on Renfield Street is a top choice in a perfect central location. You can expect exceptional service, the staff are very friendly without being intrusive. The food is great; its all freshly made to order, I really like the prawn poori. Plus they're Halal, so I know I can recommend it to my Muslim friends."

“I love Rogano, it’s got such a unique atmosphere and history. I’m a big seafood fan and I’ve never been disappointed by any of their dishes. I particularly love the provincial mussels.”
