What a great place, relaxed atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff, good range of drinks and food on offer, best chicken wings and rack of ribs I've had in ages. And the Bobby Deans Jazz band were terrific, what a great way to spend an afternoon - we'll be back and will recommend to others. Thanks you. Carol, Barrhead.

Even though the atmosphere, the location, food and drinks menu are great, I was very disappointed with this booking. I have requested mic and projector for my reservation, however, upon arrival I found out there was a gig at the venue happening at the same time and all the mics have been used for the gig. Not to mention that the other event was interrupting my event. I understand that this venue is busy but I would appreciate being informed about it when making the booking. Even though, I have checked twice with the staff before the event, I was unaware of these circumstances. I would appreciate being informed about this since it has significantly impacted the atmosphere of my event. On the other hand, I have to say that the staff were trying their best to make up for this. However, allowing a booking for 50 people knowing there is a gig at the same time is a bad management practice. Since Record Factory is a great venue very conveniently placed in the West End, I will probably make a booking in the future, but I would appreciate more consideration towards customers.

Great atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon. The band were absolutely fantastic-. We also ate and can thoroughly recommend the Mac and Cheese ( tho order the chips rather than the garlic bread ) What the record factory lacks in style and comfort ( Just wooden tables and benches ) it more than makes up for in entertainment and atmosphere and the staff were really friendly too .

Easy to arrange venue and good price! The only problem was that the venue got very warm and the sound quality was not that good. But overall I had a great time!

We would both like to thank the staff and management for the ABBA tribute night. We had such a fantastic time everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was first class. There isn't anywhere better to go in Glasgow x

Thank you for making my birthday night so enjoyable! One of my party members was kicked out quite early in the night by one of the bouncers and he refused to let me know what the reason behind it was. This was the only downfall to my night but everybody else had a fantastic night and will most definitely be back.

Ordered starters and main courses but, bizarrely, these were brought out together without explanation. That was the only negative aspect of an otherwise enjoyable visit.
