With a location that is the envy of many a Glasgow bar – directly outside Glasgow Central train station on the corner of Waterloo Street and Hope Street – and a menu that takes in Scottish and international favourites, The Hope is an establishment with a fair old bit going for it. They’re open every day for lunch and dinner, and they offer one of the best beer and wine selections in the city centre, so book a table now and head on over.
Lovely place which is now the Smokin Fox, have been many times, food always fab and great atmosphere.
I wouldn't have thought about going to the Hope as it just looks like a pub from the entrance. I was surprised by a comfortable seating area. The service was great, there was a super selection of beers and the food was good. I enjoyed my visit.
Food was lovely and service was good would definitely recommend
Scottish cuisine is based around superb ingredients and time-honoured cooking methods. The Hope is a bar that applies these principles to their food, whether in their haggis, neeps and tatties, steak pies, their Scottish breakfast or their fish and chips – though you’ll find no deep-fried Mars bars here, you can find plenty of other Glasgow favourites. Situated right outside Glasgow Central train station on the corner of Hope Street and Waterloo Street, their pub is the perfect place for a lunch, a post-work pint or a quick breakfast before you catch your train.
While some people will pop in for breakfast – and we could wax lyrical about the full Scottish option – the location of The Hope in the city centre makes it perfect for a lunch. Dropping into Waterloo Street is a favourite of local office workers, who keep coming back for a slap-up midday feed, or for a post-work pint and a bite to eat to begin the weekend properly. The address can make The Hope a very busy venue on weekday evenings, so make sure you book a table in advance.
