For anyone who has been to Glasgow lately, I have a detailed question. There are two Willow Restaurants in Glasgow in the Macintosh style- the recently refurbished (and original?) Macintosh at the Willow on Sauchiehall (sp?) and the WiIlow Tea Room on Buchanan. I can look on Tripadvisor and check out the menus to see the reviews, but wondering if anyone here has been to either/both and has a preference before I have to think about reservations for lunch or afternoon tea. I can only pick one with the time I have. I don't usually like to think about things in this much detail but pretty sure reservations are needed and my brain is done thinking. It's down to y'all or a coin flip.
I'm responding with my very limited information just in case you don't hear from anyone else. When I took the Mackintosh tour, it was the tea room on Sauchiehall that was pointed out to us. That is an original location. Other "Willow Tea Rooms" are based on Mackintosh designs (I believe) but are in new locations.
We went to the tea rooms on Buchanan. I can't compare with the other one, but I can say that we enjoyed our experience at the Willow Tea Rooms.
