80th Birthday Party - January 2020

What a wonderful day we had on Thursday. You all came up “Trumps.”

The Venue and lunch was superb, and everyone commented on the excellent menu, and the food was beautifully hot, and the service terrific, and the “one table plan”was excellent and worked well . All good. Well Done everyone.

Everything went so smoothly, so thank you for organising my birthday celebrations so well. It was such a memorable day.

I have had several thank you letters already with great comments on such a good afternoon.

With many thanks again Kate, and best wishes - Jean



60th Birthday Celebration - November 2019

We had such a fantastic day and night – the staff were fabulous and very attentive throughout the entire day and evening.

The food was also incredible – everyone commented on it. 

I can honestly say that I would absolutely recommend House for An Art Lover to everyone, and if we are holding any similar events, then it would be there.

Thanks again for all your help in organising things and keeping me right.

Kind regards,

Kath Mckinlay 


Golden Wedding - July 2019

We had to let you know right a  way what a fabulous evening we had last night. Everything was just perfect. The staff on duty were so friendly, on the ball and helpful - they made the evening top class. So many of our guests commented so favourably about the room - I think you could well have some repeat business as a result. Of course the weather was amazing and hence the terrace was a great facility. Altogether top class - we would be delighted to recommend it to anyone.

Finally thank you for all you did in organising the event. Nothing was forgotten and things worked like clockwork . We appreciated all you did for us.

With very kind regards

Una and Duncan 


Birthday Lunch - July 2019

Hi Kate just wanted to drop you a wee note to let you know that my Birthday event on Sunday went really well.

I can't praise the staff enough for the very professional way they were throughout the afternoon. I have never been to an event where the staff were so highly trained, very professional & very helpful. Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to them & let them know how they helped to make my day special. My guests were all commenting on how good the staff were.

The food of course was excellent as always so my thanks to the chef & kitchen staff.

Unknown to me Gil had organised for The Secret Opera Singers to perform & they were great.

Once again many thanks for helping to make my day so special.

Kind regards

50th Birthday - July 2019

I am writing to thank you and your team so much for hosting such a wonderful night for us. It could not have gone better and Lisa didn’t want it to end.

Thanks for all the meetings and time you spent working on this with us.

Please thank your catering team as the food was lovely and all enjoyed.

Can you also thank your team on the night I think it was Farouk and Lizzie? They were so helpful and always on hand.

The room was lovely too and everyone commented upon it. 

Thank you



Golden Wedding - July 2019

it was just lovely in every way.  The staff were so kind and attentive; the lunch was very tasty and enjoyed by all and the extra room was very well used by all the children, as was the Terrace.

After we went off many of the family went to enjoy the play park, so happiness all round.  It was also a bonus to be allowed to go down to floor 1 and see the rooms there.  Two of my talented great-nephews played the piano for us too.

Thanks to you and everyone for making it such a special day.  We are looking forward to returning next Sunday as guests of our oldest friends Maureen and Colin!

All the best,

Maureen and David


40th Birthday Celebration - June 2019

Many thanks for your note. We had a fantastic afternoon with all Lyndsey’s family and friends. The event was run very efficiently by Maria who was fabulous and worked well with her team especially Jack who was also very good. We thought the food was delicious......All of our guests  were very impressed with the venue and we even had a couple of Japanese tourists drop in while visiting Rennie Macintosh venues in Glasgow.  The weather made it possible to use the outside and this was a great hit. Some of the older kids found there way down to the park for a while and that was also good.

However I can’t emphasise how professional Maria was in making sure everything ran like a Swiss watch and a lot of the success of the afternoon was down to her good management of the event.

Thanks again and we won’t hesitate to recommend House for an Art Lover for any special event.
