The Clock Tower

“Save the Clock Tower, save the Clock Tower.” I was transported back to the Hill Valley 1985 future when I stumbled upon the Clock Tower cafe on a recent visit to Glasgow Royal Infirmary.


I was in for a very quick flyby visit with work colleague and Dr Noodles devotee Pauline. She had a very good go at trapping herself forever in their conveniently positioned disabled toilet, as I queued.

My eye was caught by a sandwich featuring peri peri chicken and chorizo on shiny white. It was heated to order by the friendly counter woman.

I was eating on the go so with very rudimentary photos taken we were on our way.

It was a panino that was hard to argue with. The chicken was warmly spiced, there was a good amount of sweet chorizo and the shitty bread was toasted to best advantage. I liked it.

So overall, I enjoyed the Clock Tower. It served me a good sandwich in my hour of need. I visit the grand old GRI from time to time so may find myself back here again. If they serve me as well as on this visit I’ll be solidly pleased.
