It is rumoured that the former President Ronald Reagan once said: ‘I never drink coffee at lunch. I find it keeps me awake for the afternoon’.
Happily, most of us don’t have to run the world’s biggest super power before or indeed after lunch.
Enjoy a relaxing lunch for two with today’s Big Deal at the splendid Strathblane Country House Hotel.
A half hour drive from Glasgow and Stirling, Strathblane Country House Hotel is surrounded by stunning Scottish countryside – the Campsie Fells, Dumgoyne and Ben Lomond all provide a breath-taking backdrop.
It is perfectly placed for a run out with friends or family with a delicious lunch at the heart of the trip.
Available Tuesday to Sunday, the offer is for two people to have two courses (starter and main course) from the daily changing market menu in the restaurant at the hotel.
The market menu changes depending on the best produce available each day. Typical starters might include the melon and prawn Marie Rose or the warm salad of chicken, bacon, black pudding and Cos lettuce with a balsamic dressing.
Popular main courses include the breast of chicken with haggis in an Arran mustard whisky cream or the seared salmon with wilted spinach and lemon butter.
Of course, there are always vegetarian options like the asparagus and garden pea ravioli with tomato and garlic compote, fresh Parmesan and rocket leaves.
Not only is the cooking at Strathblane Country House Hotel excellent but their sourcing policies are also impeccable.
They buy only the freshest Scottish produce and guarantee that all their beef is 100% Aberdeen Angus. Fresh fish is delivered daily to ensure the best possible quality and flavour.
This is what a couple of recent visitors wrote on TripAdvisor after eating in The Country Club Restaurant:
‘Lovely meal, warm and welcoming surroundings, highly recommended. Had haggis and pork loin, really well cooked and well presented.’
‘The meal was delicious and the waitress was lovely.’
When we have run this deal previously, people who bought the vouchers have used them to treat friends for their birthday or simply as part of a relaxing day out.
If you’re tickled at the thought of a good lunch in a beautiful setting then snap up today’s Big Deal with Strathblane Country House Hotel.
