This house, built from the original Charles Ronnie McIntosh plans is well worth a visit. It was built by Glasgow City. Council decades after his death. Well worth a visit.

We've been here a few times now - once to visit the house exhibition and a couple of lazy afternoons spent in the restaurant and garden. It's lovely, the staff are friendly and the food is good. Definitely worth a visit.

Always a pleasure to visit this restaurant, in Bellahouston Park. Just popped in for afternoon tea and it was amazing. Great selection and mouthwatering pastries. worth visiting the stunning adjacent walled garden while at the restaurant. Also the excellent gift shop.

The food is wonderful, the building has to be seen and photographed. The park and sculptures are just Glasgow.

This is a very interesting and beautiful building but there is very little of it. if the upstairs rooms were decorated according to Mackintosh's designs, it would truly be a House for an Art lover.More

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!
