Thanks for the Memories: Do You Remember the Old Willow Tea Rooms?

Did you take tea at the original Willow Tea Rooms?  Do you remember the dainty cakes and immaculate waitresses?  Did you stroll down Glasgow’s stylish Sauchiehall Street to enjoy a leisurely lunch or afternoon tea.

Perhaps you have photographs of dining there, old menus or souvenirs that help to tell the story of an important part of Glasgow’s history?  Maybe you have a personal connection to the tea rooms’ original owner Miss Kate Cranston, or the now world-renowned Architect who designed them, Charles Rennie Mackintosh?


If you have Willow memories, photos or artefacts you would love to share, please email us at or phone 0141 332 7696.
