It will soon be February and everyone will have completed their no drinking, calorie-watching, gym-going penance for the excess of the festive period.
Or at least we will all have quietly brushed our New Year resolutions under the table.
We’re going to celebrate by going to the Caribbean.
Or rather we’re going to go to Sugar Dumplin, the new Caribbean BBQ bar in Princes Square, and the nearest thing to Barbados which can be found on Buchanan Street.
Modelled on a laidback beach hut, it’s a colourful and chilled spot for some hot ribs and cool tunes.
Kick back and feel the metaphorical sand between your toes with today’s sweet Big Deal on a meal for six at Sugar Dumplin.
Beach shack setting
Available seven days a week until the end of March, the offer is for six people to enjoy a three course meal from the menu below in one of Sugar Dumplin’s semi-private shacks.
Included on arrival is a Bellini for each guest.
Tea and coffee are included in the menu. Other drinks are not. We can recommend exploring the rum-based cocktail list.

Sugar Dumplin has been winning fans on TripAdvisor. One visitor reckoned they enjoyed ‘quality Calypso cuisine’. Getting into the Caribbean lingo, another found ‘every ‘ting alright’.
The restaurant’s Facebook page carries lots of happy reviews like this one:
‘Great food, great cocktails, great venue – will definitely be back.’
The weather ain’t warm and Caribbean air tickets are expensive.
Step out of the rain and into the warmth with today’s Big Deal from Sugar Dumplin.
Life is that little bit sweeter with Sugar Dumplin.
