The novelist Charlotte Brontë once said, ‘Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.’
A couple of hundred years later, the rapper Snoop Dog echoed Charlotte’s thoughts when he said, ‘It ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none.’
Taste some happiness with your homies thanks to today’s Big Deal on a deli sharing platter for two plus wine at Cranachan.
Cranachan is an inviting mix of modern design and locally-produced food.
Situated on the second floor of Princes Square, and with spacious, airy atrium seating, it is great for people-watching.
Inside Cranachan, antler chandeliers and walls decorated by Glasgow’s famous Timorous Beasties confidently set the stage for the contemporary Scottish cuisine served in Cranachan.
Available on Sunday to Friday afternoons, the offer is for a two person sharing platter and a glass of house wine for each guest.
Choose one of the following four platters, all served with crusty bread and oatcakes:
Fish – smoked Scottish salmon with caper berries, smoked trout, mackerel pâté with horseradish crème fraiche and a miniature Cranachan Cullen skink
Ploughman’s Platter – Mull of Kintyre Cheddar, smoked cheddar and Ayrshire ham with piccalilli, chutney and fresh salad greens
Meat – Scottish roast beef, ham hough terrine and chicken liver pâté with fresh salad greens, wholegrain mustard and seasonal chutney
Cranachan – ham hough terrine, miniature Cullen skink, smoked mackerel pâté, olives, sun blush tomatoes, piccalilli, and tossed greens
Cranachan scores a very solid 4.2/5 from slightly fewer than 300 5pm reviews. Good service and fantastic Cullen skink are recurring themes in the customer comments:
‘Excellent food and service for a great price. The Cullen skink is amazing, highly recommended!’ Rating 4.8/5
‘Very good. Was looking for a bite to eat after a shopping trip and the trip to Cranachan was perfect for me and my friend. Great buzz and atmosphere about the place. Sat outside so loads of people watching to be done. Cullen skink was gorgeous and waiting staff very attentive without getting in the way. Great value for money… Will be back.’ Rating 5/5
This Big Deal would be perfect for a shopping trip break; an afternoon catch-up with a friend or a late lunch.
