Come dine with me, let’s dine let’s dine away. Sometimes you can’t trust your friends and family to behave themselves in a full restaurant, so you need to tuck them away into a side room. We all know how a night out in this city can get out of hand, so for the good of people having a nice meal, we’ve put together a list of our favourite places for private dining in Glasgow. Have we missed any? Let us know.
