Meet The Team – Chloe Smythe

Chloe is part of our amazing front of house team and has been part of Mackintosh at the Willow from the beginning. This photo shows her with a certificate she won at our staff night for joint place in “most likely to be running the business in ten years time”!

What is your favourite colour? Definitely pink at the moment.

Favourite food from our menus? The whiskey sticky toffee pudding.

What are your hobbies? Mostly catching up with some tv shows and movies, some reading and enjoy outdoor activities like paintballing.

How long have you been working at Mackintosh at the Willow? Since we first opened so just over 2 years.

Can you tell us what your favourite room at Mackintosh at the Willow is and why? My favourite room would have to be the billiard room, I think it has a perfect atmosphere and is a great room for hosting events.

What do you like most about working here? I enjoy meeting people that have a great passion for Charles Rennie Mackintosh that are willing to travel around the world to see his famous tearoom back to its original glory.

What is your favourite season at the building? Definitely Summer. I love when it’s nice out that the sun is shining throughout the tearooms and we have the roof terrace open.

Thank you so much for all your hard work Chloe!

Announcement from Mackintosh at the Willow.


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.
