About Ryan James

Ryan James is Chairman of The Glasgow Restaurant Association and owns The Two Fat Ladies group of restaurants.

After managing a number of successful restaurants including The Brasserie on West Regent Street which is now Le Chardon d’Or, he went into business with a customer transforming a disused old mill in Milngavie into a thriving café bar and restaurant.

The pair sold the business in 2002 and Ryan went on to buy Two Fat Ladies on Dumbarton Road, trebling the turnover within two years and winning the Auchentoshan Spirit of Glasgow Restaurant of the Year title. 

Since then the business has flourished with Two Fat Ladies in Glasgow city centre followed by Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery which won Best New Restaurant from both The List and The Scottish Restaurant Awards. 

The Shandon Belles bistro, which is in the basement of The Buttery opened in 2008. In 2011 Ryan branched out into fish wholesaling with a company he formed with a fishmonger. The Scottish Fishmonger now supplies all of the group’s seafood restaurants with fish and has a growing customer base.  

Ryan expanded his geographic reach last year when he was invited to create a signature Two Fat Ladies restaurant at The Marine hotel in Troon.
