How is your lunch looking for the next few days?
If it involves staring at the back of Bob the intern’s head while poking at a Boots meal deal then you need a breath of fresh air.
Get a taste for the summer with today’s Big Deal on lunch for two at the Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa by Peebles.
Set on the banks of the River Tweed in the peaceful Scottish Borders, the four-star Macdonald Cardrona is just 40 minutes outside Edinburgh and 90 minutes from Glasgow.
It’s a convenient locale for anyone looking for a hassle-free day out.
A trip to the Borders – perhaps with a morning of mountain biking or a round on the hotel’s Championship golf course – followed with lunch.
If that sounds better than sharing a pack of cheese ‘n’ onion with Bob, grab this Big Deal and set the controls for Macdonald Cardrona Hotel.
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to each have a main course and starter from the summer menu below. The offer also includes a glass of sparkling wine for each diner – a few bubbles always makes the sunshine brighter.
Your lunch will be served in the award-winning Renwicks Restaurant.
The proud holders of an AA Rosette, Renwicks is an airy and inviting space, featuring panoramic views of the golf course and the Border hills.
