The 7 oldest most respected restaurants in Glasgow in chronological order

The oldest restaurants in Glasgow are spotted all over the city - with some standing for well over 100 years!

Glasgow has long been on the forefront of Scottish cuisine - while the supposed capital of Edinburgh has plenty of Michelin-starred fine dining restaurants - Glaswegian food institutions in the West of Scotland do it best, producing some of the tastiest, well-loved menus in Britain.

One only need to look at modern Glasgow restaurants to see this, the like of Six by Nico, Ox and Finch, and other new popular eateries, offering incredible cuisine - their presence was only made possible by standing on the shoulders of Glaswegian gastronomic giants like the sorely missed Dino Ferrari’s or Koh-i-Noor.

Whether it be Indian, Asian, Middle Eastern or Scottish - all cultures of Glasgow are represented in the city’s culinary scene. In this article we wanted to look at the oldest restaurants in Glasgow, some of which are well over 100 years old, that you can still dine in today!
