As its name suggests, Glasgow’s Merchant City was once home to the sugar, tea and tobacco lords who made their fortunes in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
These days, you don’t need to be a plantation owner to enjoy a fantastic meal in one of Glasgow’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.
Take up today’s Big Deal on a meal for two at Ingram Wynd and live like a lord in your own lunchtime. Or dinner time – this offer is very flexible.
Hugely popular with 5pm diners, Ingram Wynd is a welcoming restaurant and bar on Ingram Street.
Covered in etchings, pictures, paintings and maps dating from the 19th century, the decor at Ingram Wynd is a treasure trove of local history and the restaurant also delivers delicious contemporary cuisine.
Available all week, for lunch or dinner, the offer is for two people to each enjoy a starter and main course from Ingram Wynd’s rather tasty Big Deal menu.
A glass of house wine each is part of the deal – the perfect compliment to the kitchen’s delicious creations.
Individual dishes may change depending on availability but this sample menu gives a good idea of the choices you will have for your meal:
Homemade soup of the day served with toasted bread

Ingram Wynd is a hit with 5pm users. Each time we have done a deal with the restaurant, it has sold quicker than TV celebs deserting the jungle.

Christmas gift idea
Available seven days a week for lunch or dinner, this Big Deal is valid from the 2nd of January to the end of March 2015.
It would make a tremendous Christmas present or you could buy a few and treat friends and family to splendid meal in the Merchant City in the early part of 2015.
January will seem much less wintry when there is a fun night out pencilled in to the calendar.
