I am never really in this area of Glasgow, mostly drive through it but today I was going for brunch.

I had heard many good reviews about Lebowskis from either the atmosphere, the drinks, events etc so I was looking forward to trying here.

Today was a nice day so I opted to sit outside and enjoy the sun.

The Food :

This was part of an Itison deal so it was 2 Bunches with prosecco for £19, this is really good its basically 50% off

Full Breakfast £n/a (normally £15)
The full breakfast

What can I say? this was very filling, you had loads here to eat and everything was cooked perfectly.

For me and its a personal thing, I like my bacon a little more crispy but I didn’t ask for it this was as wanted to see how they do it.

I really enjoyed this and would have this again, but I did spot they did pancakes bacon and maple syrup as another option so hmmmm it could be that if I get this voucher again.

Portion Size : 5
Value for Money :  5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Overall :

Today was a nice day, I enjoyed sipping on my Prosecco and having my big breakfast under the sun.

I have zero complaints about today’s visit, the food and service was very good and for value for money with the voucher it was very very good.

Would I go back? Yes with and without the voucher as its still good value but more so with the voucher.

Maggie May’s (Glasgow) : Review

I have never been to Maggie May’s, I have always passed it on the bus, walked passed it but never thought lets go in and see what its like.

I recently spotted an Itison for here, where I could get 2 burgers and 2 soft drinks for £9 how good is that! So I thought this is an offer to good not to purchase and try.

Maggie May’s has had a revamp so this was like a promo to get people to come in and see whats its like now and to try the food.

On entering I had a look about, for me it was a typical bar with a little modern twist to it. The place looked very clean, and the layout looked nice and spacious.

The eating area is at the far right back of the premises, so we were shown to the tables.

The Food :

The offer was for a burger and a drink, but I thought lets try a starter and see what the other food is like here.

Maggese Lava Dipping Pot £4.00
Cheesy dipping pot served with Tortilla chips


I took a look at the menu and it was between two dishes, but this one won.

On arrival this looked a good portion size for a starter, and I just dug in.

This was very nice, the chips were nice and crispy and the sauce was very good. The sauce had a little kick to it, which was perfect and overall a really good starter.

Portion Size : 5
Value for Money : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 4

Whiskey-a-go-go £N/A (Normally £8.50)
Beef burger topped with haggis & fried onions with a whiskey infused peppercorn sauce


There was a lot of nice sounding burgers on the menu, so it was a hard choice to make but I opted for this one.

Presentation wise it was just ok, the burger though did look good and smelled good.

The burger taste was nice but just so so for me, I was expecting something a little more from this due to the haggis and the sauce but it was ok.

Would I have it again? hmmm maybe if I was back in, but if I do return I would try some of the other burgers on the menu.

Portion Size : 5
Value for Money : n/a
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 3.5

Overall :

Overall my first visit to Maggie Mays was an ok one, the inside I can’t really comment on the new look but it looked nice.

Food wise again it was ok, I really enjoyed my started and the burger was nice.

I would try another burger next time, and maybe another starter…then again I did enjoy the starter a lot so will see what happens on my next visit.

Afternoon Tea at Blythswood Hotel (Glasgow) : Review



11 Blythswood Square
Glasgow G2 4AD



Visit Date : Sunday 23rd April 2017

Another day another Afternoon Tea, I have been having a few lately….

This visit for Afternoon Tea was with a itison voucher, to be honest I feel that this Afternoon tea with the voucher is 100% worth the value for money. If you do see it on itison I would recommend you get it.

I was actually a little surprised with this one, as when the Afternoon Tea arrived we got two stands for some reason I thought we would just get one to share so this was a great voucher.


There was loads and the presentation was really nice. I have seen some Afternoon Tea’s served in a different area from where I was today, but I am glad it was here as this was very relaxing and I had a great view of the room and out the windows.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 4

Overall :

Overall I cant really say anything bad about today’s visit, service and portion size was good. The sandwiches and cakes were all fresh, and I felt very full after it.

Again if you see this deal on itison 100% go for it, as its great value for money and its really enjoyable.
