Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Tea specialist Cup have three venues in town: a smart, modern West End café on bustling Byres Road, a listed city centre building complete with portraits of Queen Victoria and original wall tiles, and a recent addition in a historic courtyard in the Merchant City. Afternoon tea is king here, with the likes of brioche rolls, rosemary focaccia and cakes tiered to delight, plus there is an extensive choice of teas and other beverages from around the world. Similar menus across the three also include brunch with eggs various ways, porridge and mini breakfast sliders, plus hearty sandwiches and pot pies for lunch. The city centre Tea Lounge morphs into gin specialist Gin71 in the evening, while the Tea Garden becomes Virginia Bar.

  • High point: Dedicated to the tea
  • Low point: On the pricey side

The central venue opens late on weekends, with added platters served, meaning it’s an alternative to the pub for those who fancy an afterhours tea.
