Today’s Big Deal with Tempus Restaurant in the Grand Central Hotel is a dead cert – dinner for two.
Beautifully renovated and re-opened in 2010, the Grand Central is one of Glasgow’s landmark hotels and it has welcomed everyone from Churchill to Frank Sinatra through its doors.
With its stylish murals, the hotel’s Tempus restaurant is one of the city centre’s dining hotspots and the kitchen has won several awards for its locally sourced, seasonal menus.
The offer is valid from 3rd January to 29th March 2019 and would be perfect for a cosy meal or catch up with friends.
It would also make an ideal Christmas present.
Available seven days a week, this Big Deal is for two people to each have two courses from the Tempus pre-theatre menu and a glass of Prosecco each.
The menu changes regularly, but a typical menu would be as follows:
Soup of the day, crusty bread (v)
Campbells of Broxburn haggis fritter, turnip mash, whisky sauce
Tomato, garlic & basil bruschetta, aged balsamic (v)
Traditional prawn cocktail, brown bread & butter
Roast chicken supreme, dauphinoise potato, green beans, peppercorn sauce
Grilled hake, crushed potato, wilted greens, tomato & caper dressing
Pappardelle pasta, woodland mushrooms, truffle cream essence
Scotch sirloin / ribeye steak (8oz/224g), fries, tomato, rocket (£5 supplement)
Warm fruit crumble, Arran Dairies ice cream
The day’s special cheesecake
Pastry chefs’ sweet of the day
Trio of British cheese, pear jelly, Arran oatcakes
Guests can choose a starter and main course, or a main course and dessert. Sides and sauces are available, payable directly to the restaurant.
Tempus at Grand Central is a hit with 5pm diners. At the time of writing, over 1,350 5pm customers who have booked in to Tempus have given the restaurant a very impressive combined rating of 4.2/5.
This is what a couple of diners wrote about after recent visits to Tempus:
‘I had 4 friends coming from various parts of the county and chose Tempus to impress and it absolutely did. The food was superb quality and the staff worked around our error in times (part of the group arrived an hour early after mistaking the arrangements) professionally and without blinking. Well done Team Tempus.’ Rating 5/5
‘A catch up with good friends. Our meal was delicious and the service attentive without being intrusive. The staff were friendly, helpful and very professional. We were not rushed, the whole evening was very relaxed. The food was of a very high standard and great value for money. We will certainly book Tempus again, and very soon.’
This offer would be ideal for a pre-theatre meal, a night out with friends or a romantic dinner for two.
It would also be a lovely gift to receive for Christmas… hint hint!
Tuck into today’s Big Deal from Tempus and have something to look forward for the start of 2019.
