Plans submitted to re-open Glasgow’s Cabin restaurant

Plans have been submitted with Glasgow City Council to re-open the Cabin restaurant on Dumbarton Road in the Whiteinch area of the city.

It closed its doors in 2015, 125 years after it first opened, and the new plans including expanding into a shop unit next door.

The application states that the eatery would have a “bistro and coffee shop feel”.

It said, “The applicant seeks to restore The Cabin to its original beauty to create a vibrant and much needed social hub which is spacious, accessible and relevant to today’s clientele.

“The restaurant will have a bistro and coffee shop feel serving food and coffee throughout the day and evenings reviving an important social condenser for the area.

“Dumbarton Road Whiteinch currently only has two working sit-in Class 3 units; The Big Belly Deli at 781-783 and the Lotus Lebanese Restuarant at 1363.

“This means that Whiteinch is currently served by only two restaurants or cafes along this one mile stretch which is woefully inadequate in terms of community amenity.

“In contrast there is a huge predominance of Class 1 units. We would ask that Glasgow City Council look favourably upon this change of use application to allow the Cabin Restaurant, Glasgow’s Oldest Restaurant, a strong chance of having a sustainable and successful future.”
