The Raven is a bar and restaurant located in the heart of Glasgow’s city-centre and we’re a proud part of the Glaswegian tradition of great scran and tipples. We specialise in roast meats and craft beers. You can find us nesting on Renfield Street – a stone’s throw from Glasgow Central. Many a lucky wanderer has discovered the gem that is The Raven on the hunt for food before a gig or in search of a place to refuel after a hard day’s shopping.

ROOST IN THE NEST
At The Raven, we’ve constructed a cosy area that we like to call “The Nest”. Situated upstairs –where else would a raven’s nest be?- it’s available for function hire when you need a great location for any events you’re hosting. Whether it’s for a birthday bash; an anniversary do; a work function or you just quite fancy a get-together, The Nest is the perfect location for your celebration. Not only is it a really neat place for an event, hire is free. We can take the hassle out of hosting an event for you with our excellent buffet options: two menus, both delicious. With a menu at £7 per head or one for £10 per head, our delicious buffets will suit your budget and needs. And we know there’s nothing worse than having to go downstairs to get your drinks at a party. The Nest doesn’t have that problem. It comes equipped with a private bar, meaning a drink’s never far away.
Unwind in The Raven in front of one of 11 big screens and take in all the excitement with a craft beer in hand. Showing the very best that Sky Sports and BT Sport have to offer, The Raven is fast becoming the new home for live sport in Glasgow. With Champions League, International football, Six Nations, Rugby Union, golf, tennis and much more, The Raven has something for everyone. And with commentary in our Nest bar upstairs, it’s the perfect place to catch all the action.
