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 to the end of August 2018 and would be perfect for a cosy meal or catch up with friends.

Tempus at Grand Central is a hit with 5pm diners. At the time of writing, over a thousand 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.
Tuck into today’s Big Deal from Tempus and light up the summer.
