Wet, windy and cold – so far January has been about as much fun as watching back to back Eastenders omnibuses.
Fortunately, great food and good times are just a click away with today’s Big Deal on a delicious steak dinner for two at the Thrisstle Restaurant in Strathblane’s Kirkhouse Inn.
Nestling below the Campsie Fells, the Kirkhouse Inn has welcomed guests for more than 400 years.
Now headed by award-winning chef Allan Duncan and his wife Margaret, it has just had a stunning refurbishment and is winning a new generation of customers.
10oz Ribeye steak
Named after the old Scots word for thistle, the Thrisstle Restaurant prides itself on using as much local produce as possible.
Available 5pm-9pm, seven days a week, this offer is for two people to have a steak dinner with a glass of house wine.
Diners can tuck into a 21 day-aged, 10oz, Ribeye Steak, cooked to your liking and served with fries, tomato and mushrooms.
The Kirkhouse Inn has been earning itself enthusiastic reviews since its recent refurbishment.
This is from a TripAdvisor review which was left in December:
‘Had an excellent meal at the Kirkhouse Inn in newly, tastefully refurbished dining room. Had a very good choice of menu and staff were attentive and cheerful. Three of us opted for the fillet steaks which were cooked to perfection… Leave space for the desserts which were again excellent. The hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment programme throughout and would highly recommend a visit.’
Just half an hour from both Glasgow and Stirling, the Kirkhouse in Strathblane is ideally placed for a day out to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
The hotel is also handy for walkers doing the West Highland Way and visitors to the nearby Glengoyne distillery.
Combine a day out with today’s Big Deal on a steak dinner at the Thrisstle Restaurant and the outlook for early 2015 will begin to seem considerably sunnier.
