I posted in another thread asking for names of stores which were in Sauchiehall Street/Hope Street in 60s.
Now I would like to know of Glasgow bakeries which also had function rooms and did weddings.

One of them might have been The City Bakeries but I can't remember the others,

A F Reids bakers and caterers offices at Victoria Rd did weddings in halls and houses and I think the Co-op did outside catering that would include weddings.

Thanks marydee.A.F Reid does sound familiar and I think you're right in saying the Co-op did outside catering.
I'm sure there was another bakeries chain that did weddings.

Strachan Kerr somewhere in Shawlands my mother was a silver service waitress and supplemented her widow's pension doing weddings and funerals in halls and houses.

That rings a bell somewhere but I somehow think one of the bakeries I'm thinking off was in the West End of the city or maybe had a branch there.I remember it being discussed as a possible wedding venue.

Aye Melody she used to come home with a goody bag filled with fancy sandwiches, sausage rolls and grapes and cherries that had been dipped in sugar and walk the last few hundred yards home with her shoes in her hand 'cos her feet were killing her.

Nice memories Marydee, I remember gran coming home with foodstuffs too. I remember not liking it if she had to go to a faraway place to work for the day as I'd miss her. I was spoiled as she seldom went out to work, only odd days. This would have been in the late 1950's.

The City Bakeries in Byres Road which is now occupied by Pizza Express had a function room upstairs in its premises.

Hi Lilian. M & A Brown's was on Sauchiehall St, opposite the ABC cinema. Used to met my Mum from work and go here for lunch during school holidays. They also held weddings down stairs. Mary
