If you don’t dine by a river at least once this summer (ideally on a warm, balmy evening while sipping on a big glass of wine), then you won’t really have done summer properly, will you?
But if you are stuck for the ideal place to go, then the 4-star Crowne Plaza hotel in Finnieston is an excellent spot to enjoy a meal overlooking The Clyde. Close to The Tall Ship, it has all the sun-kissed river scenery you could want.
See if you are tempted by today’s Big Deal on dinner for two with a bottle of wine at the hotel’s Mariner Bar & Restaurant.
Stylish meal for two
This Big Deal from The Mariner Bar & Restaurant at the Crowne Plaza on Clydeside is for a main course each for two people plus a bottle of house wine to share.
This deal is available for an evening meal from 5.30pm to 9.30pm, seven days a week. Given the location, it would be perfect for dinner before a show at the Hydro, SEC or Armadillo, as well as The Rotunda casino and comedy club.
As you can use up to five vouchers per booking, this would also be perfect for a group celebration.
Dine with a view of The Clyde
The Mariner Bar & Restaurant is the Crowne Plaza’s smart riverside dining spot. You can enjoy unwinding in an airy, open-plan space with great views over the water and a décor scheme that celebrates the shipbuilding heritage of Clydeside.
The hotel has paid on-site parking and the Exhibition Centre train station is only a ten minute walk away.
Choice of three mains
With this deal, you get to choose between three main courses:
Half roast chicken garlic, rosemary, skin-on-chips, house ‘slaw, smoked chilli mayo.
Bistro rump steak (8oz) skin-on-chips, roast tomato, watercress and grilled field mushroom
Superfood salad with optional chicken or sea trout, little gem, baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, feta cheese, sun-blush tomatoes, pomegranate pearls, edamame beans, mixed grains and either balsamic vinaigrette or honey & mustard dressing
Dishes come accompanied by a choice of the following sauces: peppercorn, diane, chimichurri or garlic & chilli butter sauce.
We’re opting for the 8oz rump steak with peppercorn sauce and red wine. How about you?
Although dessert isn’t included, you might be tempted by options like the chocolate fondant pudding, baked vanilla cheesecake and raspberry crème brûlée.
