Sherbrooke Castle Hotel

Arriving at Sherbrooke Castle you may find it hard to believe you are still in Glasgow. The magnificent baronial building surrounded by sweeping grounds located in the leafy suburb of Pollockshields, feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The castle’s traditionally Scottish decor of tartan carpeting and historical portraits make dining in the restaurant feel like a truly elegant experience.

Recent 5pm reviews of Sherbrooke Castle Hotel

“Excellent food, surprisingly decently priced. The staff were absolutely lovely and very patient with my 10 month old niece. The surroundings were really nice too. Slightly out of the way to get to but definitely worth it.”

“First visit to Sherbrooke Castle and I’ll certainly return, what a beautiful setting. The food was delicious served in adult sized portions The venison casserole was very good accompanied by a decent glass of Shiraz. Service is attentive and friendly with an eagerness to please. I live close by so I’ll certainly dine again at this local “gem”.

Recent 5pm reviews of McMillan Chop House

“We enjoyed the weeknight steak deal, which seems to be a new offer since the last time we visited. You get 2 small steaks and a bottle of wine for £30 or larger steaks for  £45. As usual, the service and quality of the food were very, very good and I have no doubt that we’ll be back at some point in the future.”
