We don’t need to tell you that Christmas shopping is a total minefield. It’s all too easy to buy someone the wrong colour of jumper or a perfume that has them reeling in horror.
But don’t have a meltdown just yet.
Why not play it smart instead by treating a loved one to either a leisurely lunch or fizzy afternoon tea for two?
Handily, this Big Deal from stylish boutique hotel, Number 10, offers a choice of both.
Elegant Victorian gem
Number 10 is a gorgeous boutique hotel overlooking Queen’s Park. Based in a smart 19th century townhouse, it is handy for the Tramway and Hampden Park Stadium.
The hotel combines original Victorian features with modern comforts, making it a welcoming setting for an indulgent afternoon tea or lunch.
The Big Deal option one is for two people to have a traditional afternoon tea with a glass of fizz each.
Option two is for a two course lunch for two from the Big Deal menu.
Both options are available seven days a week from noon to 4pm, until 29th March 2019.
You can buy multiples with this offer and up to eight people (four vouchers) can enjoy it per table. So why not plan it as a family day out or new year catch-up with friends?
Fizzy afternoon tea
The traditional afternoon tea will include a selection of delicious finger sandwiches and sausage rolls, followed by scones and other sweet treats (for instance, carrot cake or chocolate cake bites).
As well as a choice of tea or coffee, guests can wash their feast down with a glass of fizz or soft drink.
Seasonal two course lunch
The talented kitchen brigade at 10 Restaurant & Bar craft European-style, seasonally inspired dishes using locally sourced ingredients.
Individual items can change, but here is a sample of what you can expect from the Big Deal menu:
