‘Happy birthday, darling. Here is a gift for dinner for two at the Crowne Plaza.’
It has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? Especially if you also happen to mention that the Crowne Plaza’s restaurant has sweeping views over the Clyde.
So how about impressing your other half with the gift of a three course meal for two at this landmark hotel?
Of course, it doesn’t have to all be about the romance – it’s perfect for a mate date, or a family get-together.
Jewel in the crown of the Clyde
With its scenic vantage point overlooking the water, Crowne Plaza Glasgow is a very impressive sight.
It is also just a stroll away from some of the city’s main event venues like the Hydro, Armadillo (Clyde Auditorium) and SEC, making it the ideal place to dine before a show or gig.
With this Big Deal, two people can enjoy a three course dinner each from the table d’hôte menu in The Mariner Bar & Restaurant.
You can dine seven days a week from 5pm to 9.30pm until 30th September. It goes without saying that Hydro event nights are also included.
Dine with a view
The Mariner Bar & Restaurant is an airy dining spot with tranquil views over the Clyde and décor that celebrates the city’s shipbuilding heritage.
You will be dining on the table d’hôte menu, with three courses for each guest. The menu may be subject to changes, but looks a lot like this:

Coconut barbecued squid & chorizo, garlic & herb butter
Sun blushed tomato houmous & fresh lime, olive oil and basil toast
Button mushrooms, white wine & chive cream sauce on toasted crouton
