I use the London Euston to Glasgow Pendolino service first class since I gave up flying 2 years ago and find the service generally good. Sometime things don't work like water in the toilets, no food, broken toilet or some other minor breakage.
Generally the service runs to time which it should do given the fast investment on the West Coast main line over the last few years!
The Glasgow to London service takes under 4.5 hours and on the few services that have limited stops it can be done in less than 4 hours 10 minutes.
Always book in advance as the price is extortionate otherwise.
Weekends first class may be cheaper but you don't get the food that is available during the week and is generally only worth the extra on a busy service.
