There are a few words which are improved by putting the word ‘private’ in front of them. ‘Golf course’, ‘beach’ and ‘audience with Scarlett Johansson/George Clooney’ all spring to mind.
Put ‘private’ in front of ‘dining experience’ and you get today’s fantastic Big Deal with Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery.
Not only is the restaurant one of Glasgow oldest and best loved dining venues, it is also one of the highest rated restaurants by 5pm customers.
Well known for its unique interior of oak panelling, stained glass and the wonderful mahogany and marble bar, it is one of the city’s landmark restaurants.
Under the hands of the Two Fats team, it has earned plenty of awards – not least for the five star quality of the service.
Perfect for a family celebration or simply a great meal out with friends, today’s Big Deal is for eight people to dine in either The Snug or the Chef’s Table, the two private dining rooms in Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery.
The Chef’s Table has a ringside view of all the action in the kitchen but, shielded by a window, diners are protected from the heat and noise of the kitchen team working at full throttle.
After being shown to their room, each guest will enjoy a glass of Prosecco with canapés followed by a three course set menu. Included in the deal are four bottles of house red or white to share plus coffee and petits fours to finish.
