We were in a party of 3 for lunch and had a wait of about 15 minutes for a table although there appeared to be plenty of available tables. It was a small celebration lunch and we were looking forward to some slightly special food. The menu was very average with nothing really exiting but there was a reasonable choice. It was another 15 minutes before our order was taken and then another 20 minutes before the first course arrived. The food was good without being great or exceptional. As I was the only person having a starter, I was finished well within 5 minutes but it was another 20 minutes before the main course arrived. Again the food was good to average but most defiantly not great. My other 2 friends had a desert which was basically a cake with ice cream and it took 15 minutes to arrive at the table. I do not know if there were problems with staff but the other tables who were all having afternoon tea by the time we finished appeared to be served very much quicker than we were. We arrived at the restaurant for lunch just before 1 o'clock and left at 3:45 having had a 2 course lunch, not good service by any stretch of the imagination.

Under 18s are welcome in the bar and restaurant areas until 20:00 each evening, and wheelchair access is available in the main bar and a small area of the restaurant.Simple ingredients, quality foodThe restaurant is popular for its traditional Sunday roast, and fans of the classics will be pleased to hear that items such as the homemade steak pie, fish & chips, and firm favourite macaroni cheese are amongst Cricklewood's offerings.Accessibility to BothwellCricklewood is on Hamilton Road in Bothwell and has limited on-site parking, although some street parking is available nearby. Visitors can also find several bus stops close to the restaurant.Free wifi access is available every day of the week, ideal if you've got a working lunch or just feel like a nosey on Facebook.
I have to say the Cricklewood really let us down this time. I'd been here before on two other occasions and the food and wine was very good. I wouldn't be writing this review if I thought I didn't have to. But unfortunately on this occasion, I think the restaurant should take note of what I am about to say. The staff were very accommodating and helpful so that was great. The cocktails were lovely. However, it is supposed to be an up-market gastro pub/restaurant/bar which should live up to its name. I write reviews all the time and I would like to think I give an honest approach and one that is worthy of 'constructive' criticism. I am also a cook myself and I know the difference between insipid and tasty.
We had ordered the BEEF AND BEER PIE which was supposed to come with thick cut chips, instead, it came with old saggy wedge cut potatoes, which were not pleasant to the eye and did not taste good at all.
And the beef and beer pie, well, what can I say? Terrible. I think the only good thing about that meal was the lovely golden crusty pastry itself. The beef cuts were awful, all chewy, dry and tough - a bit like an old leather boot. The gravy wasn't a gravy at all. If it was a real chef in the kitchen he or she should know how to make a decent gravy. It was really awful. It lacked consistency, taste, seasoning and colour. I would not recommend this dish. I am aware the restaurant were always advertising for chefs. The last chef we had was different, I'm sure of it. The chef this time may have been a new recruit. Well I'm sorry and I'm not, a place of this so-called standard should not be serving this low quality food!

Worse experience in a restaurant ive ever had....waited 20mins at desk to get acknowledged and had to then go looking for a member of staff as by this time there were ano at least 10 ppl arrived for bkd tables..when eventually she came she was clearly harassed and said there would b a further wait she would come bk and get us if we wanted to wait in the bar...After getting a table I had to go looking for my own menus and then try on 3 occasions to order which after waiting a further 50mins for starters (mussels) they were not the nicest ive tasted so didn't manage to eat them...a further 25mins and asked 2 members of staff on 2 occasions where my main was but wish I hadn't bothered it was Pasta Arrabiata and the worst ive ever tasted..was just like pasta with tomato puree poured over and when I complained I was told I couldn't b promised anything else beta anytime soon as they were having a bit of a crisis...so needless to say I got the bill and left...Won't b returning anytime soon...They shouldn't take bookings when they don't have the staff to cope....

I usually visit the Hamilton restaurant so it was nice to come to Blantyre for a change. The restaurant is lovely and modern.
We visited on a Monday evening and were able to get a table without a booking so that was good.
The food was fab and the portion sizes were great. The southern fried chicken is delicious and the tablet sundae is definitely worth a try.

Susan Brown opened Humble Pie Bakery Ltd in 2010. After thirty years as a teacher and thirteen years after first visiting the then fledgeling Magnolia Bakery in Manhattan she took the plunge with her first commercial venture which has been enthusiastically received, and to much critical acclaim, by fans of traditional baking. Susan's aim is to make cupcakes that taste as delicious as they look beautiful. The recipes are her own, developed and refined over the years - her cakes and butter cream are lighter and less sugary than the American equivalents and more suited to the UK palette. In only its second year of business, Humble Pie won the Regional and National Gold Award for 'Best Individual Cake in Scotland' at the 2012 Scottish Baker of the Year Awards, a competition voted for by customers and judged by a panel of master bakers. Unlike many of the current proliferation of 'virtual' cupcake businesses, Humble Pie is a real micro bakery and cake shop located in Bothwell, on the outskirts of Glasgow. At our stylish shop you can see and sample our cakes before ordering or just treat yourself to one of our cupcakes for fun, accompanied by one of our speciality hot beverages - we serve Tazo Teas, Nespresso Coffees and Spanish Hot Chocolate. Our cakes are baked fresh on site daily and have proved to be so popular we regularly sell out by the end of the day. We would be delighted to work with you to produce bespoke, hand crafted cakes for your special occasion, be it a wedding, christening or kids' party. Email Susan and book an appointment to come in and discuss your requirements. Our aim is to exceed your expectations and grow our network of delighted clients. Why not come and join us on Facebook.
This is SUCH an asset to the Southside of Glasgow. Top quality baking (always wins at the Scottish awards) using only the best ingredients well; innovative and delightful; beautiful packaging that makes such a lovely gift, far better than any flowers or wine; spotless, professional, a real treat in a humdrum world.
But it's cake and coffee- if you're looking for steak and chips go somewhere else!
And the staff are wonderful- gorgeous Glasgow girls working way below their abilities- incidentally, there is the clue to any poor reviews- jealousy. I can think of no other reason. This place is just superb, and in every way. I love it!

Wonderful freshly prepared food by the owner Phil. Not fancy surroundings but the best food in Bothwell.
Went for a birthday dinner. The meal was fabulous. Steaks were to die for !! As ever great waiting staff and not forgetting Phil the chef. He's brilliant !

Had the early evening menu here with friends and was not disappointed. Welcome was warm, food was lovely, service, as always, was great. We all enjoyed the various dishes served to our table and the value for money is great. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Lanarkshire, but, it's quite small, so booking is a must. Only suggestion would be for them to open a bit earlier, 5.30pm is a little late if travelling into town for a show, so we end up in town to eat more often than not, which is a shame. Will still go here as often as possible though. Well worth a visit if you haven't been.
