Mackintosh at the Willow - the original Willow Tearooms building, established in 1903.

A Royal Visit

We were delighted to welcome The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay to Mackintosh at the Willow this morning, to mark our official opening and to celebrate the completion of the restoration work along with other invited guests and supporters and craftsmen and women involved in the restoration. The Royal couple toured our new Exhibition centre due to open to the public tomorrow 08th September and the fully restored historic Tea Rooms. HRH Prince Charles was asked to put in place a final wood carving in the baldacchino centrepiece in the Front Saloon of the ground floor of the Tea Rooms as the final piece to mark the completion of the restoration project. Mackintosh at the Willow operates as a social enterprise and The Willow Tea Rooms Trust, the charity responsible for the restoration of the Tea Rooms and the team behind Mackintosh at the Willow, have formed a partnership with Dumfries House and The Princes Foundation to deliver work experience, to develop hospitality skills and training and employment opportunities for young people.

We’re happy to update you, that in line with government guidance and further clarification, our tearooms is still open to the public. We are closely monitoring the ongoing situation and will continue to act according to government guidelines.

Our tearooms opening hours remain the same, 12noon until 5pm.

We’ll continue to serve up delicious cakes, coffees and teas to anyone who wants to catch up safely with one other household (of up to 6 people) in a beautiful spacious environment. For now, we are not serving alcohol in the tearooms, much like Catherine Cranston in 1903 – who was a firm follower of the temperance movement!

If you don’t feel comfortable visiting, but still want to treat yourself to a delicious afternoon tea, keep an eye on further updates as our takeaway afternoon tea’s and celebration cakes are launching very, very soon.

As always, we have stringent measures in place to help protect you and our staff and you can view on our bookings page.

You can make a booking online on our reservations page, by emailing us or by giving the team a call on 0141 204 1903.
