Some North American tribes used to do rain dances to encourage wet weather.
We’re pretty certain that the Scottish equivalent is to take afternoon tea as a way of discouraging any repeat appearances by the Beast from the East.
Enjoy afternoon tea for two – or a two course meal for two – with today’s Big Deal from The Carlton Hotel on Ayr Road in Prestwick.
Logans Restaurant at The Carlton Hotel is a smart spot for a bite to eat.
Cleverly divided into several spaces, it offers intimate booth seating, window tables and smart, contemporary open fires – all illuminated by designer lighting.

‘Birthday tea. Welcoming feeling, excellent choice for meals and service top notch. Parking easy too. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience.’

Valid to the end of May, this Big Deal would make a sweet present.
It would be perfect for a catch-up with a friend. Or you could spoil someone by taking them out and making a day of it.
You could visit Culzean Castle or Burns’ cottage in the morning and then head to The Carlton Hotel for a sumptuous afternoon tea or two course meal.
Know any aunts or friends of the family who would love to be taken out for a drive with afternoon tea?
