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

Happy National Poetry Day!

‘It’s Not My Cup Of Tea’ by Jack Myers.

 

Here at Mackintosh At The Willow we love Myers clever poem about familiarity, idiosyncrasy and the role of the artist in making things that call to us. Yes it’s about cups, but it’s also about those rare, precious objects and people that seem to effortlessly fit us- things as the poet says that your ‘spirit can sleep in.’

Enjoy. (And support your local ceramicist!)

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.

Thanks to everyone for their support over the past few months.  If you have any queries about a booking the best way to contact us is at bookings@mackintoshatthewillow.com.
