In days gone by, people would not have thanked you for sending them to the Sheriff Court in Glasgow’s Merchant City.
These days the prospects are considerably brighter, with the imposing old building now housing Citation, a stylish restaurant offering classic and contemporary cuisine.
Today’s Big Deal sentences you and a friend to a two course meal at Citation, with an additional glass of wine to be served concurrently.
