Team Big Deal made just one resolution for the New Year: to eat only at the best restaurants in Scotland.
Thanks to Big Deals like today’s offer on a three course meal at Glasgow’s much loved City Merchant restaurant, we reckon that it will be an easy resolution to keep.
Located on Candleriggs, City Merchant is very handy for the City Halls and Old Fruitmarket – something to bear in mind if you are going to a Celtic Connections event.
Established in 1988, City Merchant is famous for its Scottish fish and seafood but also has plenty of options to keep meat eaters smiling.
Available Monday to Friday, from noon-9pm and 4:30pm-8:30pm Sundays, today’s Big Deal with the Merchant City venue is for one person to enjoy a starter, main course and dessert from the Big Deal Menu listed below.
Making the most of Scottish produce such as Hebridean salmon and haggis, the Big Deal Menu offers a wide selection of tempting dishes. From lobster fishcakes to prime sirloin steaks, there is plenty of variety to suit all tastes.
Smooth duck liver pate with homemade chutney
Haggis, neeps ‘n’ tatties
Lobster fish cake with a citrus chilli mayonnaise
Whisky marinated breast of chicken with haggis tattie scone, clap shot, Arran mustard
Roast loin of rare breed pork with crusted butternut squash, sage and onion jus
Seared fillet of Hebridean salmon with herb crust, bubble and squeak potatoes, wild mushroom cream
8oz prime sirloin steak with flat cap mushroom, confit tomato, battered onion rings and rooster chips
Selection of ice creams
Lemon sorbet with berry compote
Bailey’s crème brulée with homemade shortbread

Payable directly to the restaurant, a supplement of £2.75 applies on peppercorn and Diane sauces as well as tea or coffee.
The last time we ran a Big Deal with the City Merchant restaurant, it was extremely popular. Rated a whopping 4.2/5 by 5pm bookers, this is what a couple of recent diners thought of their experiences at the City Merchant:
‘Excellent as always. Great food and 5pm deal very good value.’ Rating 5/5
‘Fabulous. First class service and food. Great value on 5pm pre-theatre meal. Will definitely be back.’
