Heard this place had been taken over so I thought I'd nip in for a soup and a sandwich. Last time I visited the place need a good clean and some maintenance - this has been done by the new owners and the place is spotless and more organised. Ordered from the takeaway menu- veg soup and a tuna sandwich.... More

Used to be a regular then Jellyhill changed hands, on the plus side the place is much cleaner, tables really immaculate, lighting improved (fixed) and toilets immaculate. On the negative side the new folk don't have a clue how to make a cheese toastie and they have stopped their loyalty card, ah such is progress.

1 Thank bigmillsy
Management response:

Hi bigmillsy We're pleased you like the cleaner, brighter, upgraded Jelly Hill. Sorry that something went wrong with your cheese toastie. It would be great to get a bit more understanding as to what went wrong. Our contact details are on our webpage and I would really appreciate if you could contact us with some more specific feedback on this.... More

I went in on a busy Saturday and luckily managed to grab the last table. I had the smoked bacon and scrambled eggs on toast (highly recommend) and a latte which was great. The tablet that you get with the latte is handmade and melts in your mouth. A very welcoming Bistro in a great location in Glasgow's West End.

Thank Stuart C
Management response:

Ordered 4 double gin and tonics, not told there was no price for a double so had to pay for 8 singles, 4 tonic waters and one piece of very average cake..... a WHOPPING £44! Not impressed. Avoid.

Thank A TripAdvisor Member
Management response:

Thanks for your feedback on your visit to Jelly Hill. In Scotland Licensing Law prevents any establishment on offering a two for one or double for an extra £1 like you can do in England. This means if you order a double in a Scottish bar, you would need to pay for two singles. It may be worth keeping this... More

We stopped for coffee and cake. The interior is unusual polished wood benches and tables. Its quite small but there is some outdoor seating if the weather is ok. We just ordered coffee and cake.

Visited yesterday after driving past many times. Atmosphere was lovely, range of clientele in rage add to age. Food was very nice, staff chatty and friendly but not too much. Great service. Toilet looked newly refurbished, very nice. Dog friendly but weren't any there yesterday. I'm looking forward to coming back.

Place has been decorated and cleaned up. It was previously looking pretty tired. Beer is now sold on tap and the bruschetta was lovely. It's doggy friendly and the staff are great. I'd recommend visiting this place.
