The heart of Glasgow’s Southside. We are a Bar & Restaurant for the locals, ran by locals and here to celebrate the greater side of Glasgow.

We pride ourselves on being the venue for every occasion, whether that be shakin’ up some cocktails on a Tuesday, bringing in Gran’s 80th birthday on Friday or enjoying a wholesome Roast on a Sunday. We have recently launched a new menu with a real “POW with WOW!” and you can expect a little tingle on your taste buds as you read through our new food and drinks menu.

We love to see our guests enjoying our bar snack selection while sipping down a Blood Orange Sour and sharing stories as well as a candle lit couples night in the restaurant while they celebrate their evening in The Church.

Parents Rejoice! We always have plenty to keen the wee yins entertained with our arts and crafts table, fun games and colouring in.

    Amazing food and service! Went out of their way to make off menu mocktails for my 13 year old son and done a half portions of their gigantic sharing dessert so we could still have it!

    Requested a table outside with the booking, after 10 minutes of waiting to be served was told to find a table outside, however there was none available. Did not want to spend the hottest evening of the year indoors so went somewhere else.

    Church on the HillResponded 2 days agoHi Adam Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Our outside is first come first serve and when booking online it only gives the option of our bar area or restaurant. This is to ensure that everyone has a fair chance of experiencing some of the sunny weather. As you can appreciate our beer garden is highly sought after especially on the sunny days as not all requests can be met.

    Been a few times to the church now, always as a walk in and it’s always great to return I decided to book me and a friend in for dinner yesterday for a change. We had a great spaced area, the food was delicious and the staff were welcoming, kind and consistent with their service. I do always find the atmosphere amazing and there is always something on! Our server was gavin and he went above and beyond. I had noticed the table next to us (young couple out with their toddlers) having a handful time with their little ones but Gavin had been incredible with their children, Entertaining them with things to do and things to make whilst the parents enjoyed their meal. As a parent I fully appreciated that kind of service and it was very much noticed I’ll be back to the church and this time with the kids! Loren McGhee

    Great afternoon in the Church! Amber was fantastic and looked after us all afternoon. Really enjoyed their new seasonal beer, the Pornstar Martini Lager. They even made it into an ice cream too, much too good for children! Katsu Chicken was very tasty, tunes were chilled, servers were lovely and all round great time had. Looking to book back in for the AJ fight in couple weeks time with the lads.

    Late Lunch for 2 Staff were really pleasant and helpful with the menu and drinks Menu was varied with interesting choices, Corn Ribs and Korean Chicken Bites were really good starters. Weegie Kebab and Korean Chicken Burger were good, the batter on the chicken was darker than I prefer but still tasted good. Chicken was really moist and tasty. Drinks were fine with interesting choices of Tap Beer and Lager (Cold Town lager was good) I wish I had read the reference to the service charge on the menu but that was my fault and I understand why they have done it and the option to have it removed. My tip would have been based on the service and food, chef and bar staff, not the overall price of the meal. I will be back for more food as the options were really good as well as the staff being really helpfull.

    Church on the HillResponded on August 2, 2022Hi John, We appreciate you taking the time to leave us such great feedback. We're very glad that you enjoyed the Korean Chicken - it's a firm favourite here at Church! Glad to hear that you'll be back to visit us soon! Team Church x

    Visited in bar area, had a mixture of food including the Scotch Rump which was cooked beautifully, the Spicy Korean Bites and Dirty Buffalo Fries. Had their dessert of the day which was a trio of ice cream, which was baileys and orange, white chocolate and mandarin and something I had never tried before, Muscovado! Definitely our favourite. Service was great and a fantastic range of drinks although I had to settle for a diet coke seeing as I was driving. Booking back in for pay weekend with friends as the chef promised some fantastic specials! Church has really turned it around since our visit last summer.

    We went for lunch, (2 adults 2children) and ordered 1 starter, 2 mains, 2 childrens meals, 2 sides and 3 desserts which was £82. The food was average at best, the katsu curries were quite watery and chicken very dry, the restaurant area was dirty and unswept with tables left uncleared for the full two hours we were there. We felt this was an over priced lunch for what we got and the uncleanliness of the place really decreased the enjoyment too. We probably wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. The staff were friendly and helpful which was the only testament to church on the hill.

    Booked for my daughter graduation dinner.. beautiful place, the food was great when it finally arrived. We sat for over an hour and a half before any food was served so that definitely let the place down, whether due to staff shortages or new waiting staff I’m not so sure. Would definitely return and give it another chance though as sometimes staff are left in the lurch at the last minute which is not their fault x

    Booked table in advance for 5pm! As friends were coming from County Durham ! Was given our bill at 5.45 wasn’t even finished my meal when amber came with switch machine! We were aware that we had table for one hour and 45 mins, but service stopped at 45 mins . Our bill was £99 as there was 6 of us .. if I had known this we would of went somewhere else .. appalling service shoved out the door basically not even offered more service for drinks .. certainly won’t be back!

    I had booked for a special birthday meal, i was a bit disappointed to be honest. Our Waiter couldn't give me recommendations about the wine, I asked him to check that the carrot, coconut and chilli soup wasn't very spicy, he said it wasn't but believe me it was! The young girl who took our order looked fed up and asked if we wanted our starters first! Thats when you get starters right? The food was ok, nothing special. I felt a bit overlooked, no one came to check on us or see if we wanted any more drinks. At the end a waitress came over, she was nice, to see if we were ok and to clear. I paid a 10% tip which was added to my bill, which i didnt mind but felt only the waitress at the end, I don't think she was Scottish, deserved it.

    Great meal Great staff As our meal ended the pub quiz started. DISASTER. No warning. The quizmaster bloke was VERY loud NO prospect of holding a conversation as we finished our main course. No way we were going to stay for dessert and/or coffee and extra drinks. Rushed off (having spoken to the manager) and totally spoilt what had been a lovely evening. TOTALLY spoiled our night. Why is it so difficult to have speakers in the bar with different - or lower volume - speakers in the restaurant? Have the quiz in the bar with an over-spill in the restaurant. The ambiance was great at first - then it was rubbish.

    Church on the HillResponded on June 17, 2022Hi Scott Fantastic to hear that you enjoyed your meal 😃 Sorry to hear that our very popular quiz night is not to your liking. We very we'll advertise our Monday Pub Quiz on our website, social media and in house which attracts q big crowd and has become a staple event of the local community. it's also incredibly fun, run by Davie's Smart Phone Quiz who has a very large following.

    Absolutely cracking Sicilian Lemon GnT. Lovely fish and chips. Very moist fish, not dry at all. Very well cooked. Could’ve done with more mushy peas as they were so good, but a minor quibble. Lovely atmosphere and crowd. Not too busy, but a good level of chatter for a nice atmosphere. Great service, would love even more friendship from the staff, but should go there more often!!

    After arriving at 8pm the waiter finally came round to take a food order at 8.25 saying that he must double check if the kitchen is still open! Luckily the kitchen closes at 8.30 so we managed to get a meal, which was one of the reasons why we came in the first place. Our wine arrived exactly at 8.37! I was very close to complaining but didn't want to spoil my evening. Unfortunately football game was displayed on all of the screens, even where the dining area is so if you aren't a football fan check prior to booking or you might be very disappointed. Food itself was very average. I was looking forward to having a Cesar Salad with extra chicken, however my chargrilled chicken was tasteless as it wasn't seasoned at all. Only good G&T from the bar saved the night!

    Church on the HillResponded on April 16, 2022Hey Southsider I am sorry to learn that your experience wasn't what you expected and food wasn't to your liking. We try and accommodate all customers and we advertise in advance what games we show. With having only one Scottish Team left in the European football we usually get a good turn. We encourage you to give us a nudge if anything is less than excellent so that we can ensure that we can rectify anything that you are unhappy about. We hope that you will visit us again soon :)
