Over the years, the Millennium Hotel, which houses the Brasserie on George Square, has witnessed all sorts of historic events.
From visits by both Queen Victoria and Winston Churchill to the 1919 Battle of George Square, The Millennium Hotel has played a prominent role in Glasgow’s history.
It probably won’t be talked about in a hundred years time but, take up today’s Big Deal on a fantastic two course meal at the Brasserie and you will be in for a memorable meal.
Glasgow city centre
As its name suggests, the Brasserie on George Square looks out onto the ever bustling hub which is George Square in the heart of Glasgow. Right next to Queen Street Station, it’s as handy for transport links as it is for taking a break during a shopping trip.
Executive chef Jean Paul Giraud is an enthusiastic champion of Scottish produce and a dab hand at producing traditional Scottish dishes as well as more international flavours.
