Reasons for trip

We were invited into ‘The Haven’ after a Sunday church service at Cathcart Old Parish Church, Glasgow – for tea/coffee (and, in my case, some buttered fruit loaf) – to find that the Haven is actually a proper tea room, and not the usual wee back room you might expect – and it is not restricted to after-church opening!

The tea and fruit loaf were perfect – and looking at the weekday menu, the Haven would be a good (and inexpensive) place for a light lunch, serving (as they do) soups, omelettes, toasties, and ‘The Haven Brunch’ – as well as filled rolls/sandwiches etc (see photo’s of menu) … open from 10.00 Monday-Thursday and, on Friday from 11.30-1400, the Haven doubles as the ‘Wings Cafe’ – so any visiting Royal Air Force Association (RAFA) members obviously welcome, as are other serving or ex-service personnel.

Cathcart Old Parish Church services are normally conducted by the Rev. Neil Galbraith, who gave the service at Margaret’s Mum’s funeral a year previous to our visit. Neil is also the CEO of Glasgow the Caring City, an International Aid charity – and was described by one of the congregation as ‘must be a twin for the amount of work he does – couldn’t all be done by one person’ …

There’s one entrance on Carmunnock Road, where parking is no problem, and another from the car park around the corner at the rear of the church (where you also find yourself in the very nice garden area).”Glasgow The Caring City at Cathcart Old Parish Church”:http://www.glasgowthecaringcity.com
