At the height of summer this part of Glasgow can be busy so imagine what the restaurant is like, it can be busy but the staff are friendly and patient
Well, not exactly the most beautiful attraction in Glasgow but I have to admit that from the outside is a beautiful building and frankly its style and its colors make it quite interesting, it is certain that walking through the park is very easy to see it and frankly in front of it you can't refuse to get some pics.
Being a Templeton descendent myself, I came here hoping to have a look around this beautiful building, which now houses a restaurant and brewery. There's no mistake, the building is beautiful, but would it be better if we could have access to have a look around the inside the actual Templeton building. However, the food and ale were superb!
I have been in the building when it was Templeton Carpets, then when it changed over to offices. It's the beautiful workmanship on the outside which is amazing. The design was based on the Doge's Palace Venice, and carpets for the Taj Mahal and The Whitehouse were produced here.
I have passed this amazing building on many occasions and am always inspired by the way it has been maintained and tastefully restored.I understand it is now apartments,what a grand place to live.
I rate this as just above poor as it's not a family day out, but a great piece of architectural history - it is amazing to see and understand what went on in the building but that's it!
Just a part of glasgow history. A fascinating facade to a building. I worked in the building for a short time in 1977 when carpets were made. It closed not long after that if memory serves.
