Tiger’s Den Diner the Place to Be for North Glasgow Residents

A NEW addition to the list of places to visit in North Glasgow is proving popular with customers of ng homes as they meet fortnightly at the Tiger’s Den Diner for an evening of entertainment with a hot meal included.

Over 60 residents meet regularly at the home of the Glasgow Tigers whose walls are adorned with speedway memorabilia from through the years.The events form part of ng homes regeneration activities and help to combat social isolation in the North of the city.

Margaret Layden, Regeneration Manager for ng homes said: “We are delighted to be working with Glasgow Tigers in the community to offer our residents the opportunity to get out, along with their neighbours, make new friends and enjoy themselves at the Tiger’s Den Diner which is such a versatile space.”

Local resident Harriet Elsby, 89, from Springburn said: “I used to love the speedway and I would go and watch the Glasgow Tigers years ago.It’s brilliant to be able to come to the Den Diner now, relive old memories and meet new friends.I’ll be roaring the tigers on when the new season starts!”

Board Member for ng homes Bill Rossine also regularly attends the events and he said: “Its a really entertaining evening and a great opportunity for our customers to meet new people, enjoy good food and support a local team like the Glasgow Tigers.”

The Speedway season runs from April to October every Sunday at 3pm, and offers an exhilarating afternoon of sport in a friendly, family environment.If you’ve never been to speedway, now would be a great time to try it and visit the Tiger’s Den Diner for refreshments while you’re there.

The Tiger’s Den Diner is open seven days a week, from 6.30am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday and 9.00am to 8.00pm Saturday & Sunday although the restaurant closes two hours before tapes-up on race days.
