I have visited this restaurant twice before and have enjoyed good service and lovely food so decided as a Christmas present I would buy a voucher for friends. I was very disappointed to be told on the telephone that I could not recieve the voucher in the post and had to physically collect them. I explained I lived in the... More

This is a difficult review to write. We have been to Battlefield Rest a good few times over the years and visited this week for my nephews 30th birthday. First of all I would say the food was good, portions good size and choice excellent. The thing that let it down for us was the waiter. Swearing when he brings... More

This place is a south side of Glasgow institution so after about 15 years of swithering, I decided to give it a go. Dining room is good but a bit drafty the day I was there. Place was very busy at lunch - always a good sign. Staff were attentive. Food was above average but not memorable. Portions were a... More

I have never had a bad experience in the Battlefield. The food is always of excellent quality, the service impeccable, the price reasonable and well worth a visit.

The food was excellent, the house red excellent, the service excellent! The tables are quite close but the lighting is lower than many so it didn't trouble us at all.

Food is truly outstanding. Wonderfully balanced flavours. We were there last night - group of 25 for a birthday meal. Everyone really enjoyed it. Atmosphere is exactly how it should be: warm, friendly, welcoming and homely. The building lends something special to the ambience too. Only sorry we didn't try this place years ago. It is very, very good and... More

Historical building, and skilful deployment of tables in a relatively confined floorspace, contribute to a buzzy,convivial environment. Food is fresh, tasty, attractively presented and in generous portions. Service is competent although, on this evening at least, seemed a tad impersonal. Excellent wine list.

Enjoyed a meal here with a couple of friends. The service, food and atmosphere were great and there was no intrusively loud music ( thank goodness!). The building is a little bit of Glasgow history which is a nice touch. The tables are packed in but the table we had was not too cramped. Would certainly recommend a visit -... More
