Dinner parties are just so last year don’t you know? Private dining is where it’s at these days.
Affordable, stylish and, crucially, lacking any requirement to browse Nigella or stack the dishwasher, private dining in a chic restaurant is a great way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, engagement or family get-together.
It helps when the venue is as inviting as The Drake, Glasgow’s celebrated West End townhouse, location for today’s Big Deal, offering a three course private dinner for eight people.
The Drake’s elegant upstairs private dining rooms offer a classy backdrop for your party, the ideal place to enjoy conversation and catch up with friends and family.
This Big Deal, available seven days a week, is for eight to twenty people to have three courses from a set menu at The Drake, with a welcoming glass of Prosecco on arrival.
The accent is on fresh, local and seasonal produce, prepared with invention and an emphasis on letting the excellent ingredients take the spotlight.
Although the menu may be subject to changes, it looks a lot like the following:
Soup of the day, crusty bread
Salt & chilli fish bites, mint crème fraîche
Smoked ham & chicken terrine, curried mayo, toasted bread
Lightly spiced veg pakora, raita dip
Five spiced belly of pork, braised cabbage, root veg, creamed pots
Lightly spiced chicken breast, Bombay potatoes, raita
Roast Scottish Salmon, puy lentils & bacon
Roast butternut squash, quinoa salad, crispy kale
Sticky toffee pudding, vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce
Chocolate crémeux, meringue & raspberry coulis
Scottish cheese & oatcakes
The Drake has become something of a West End landmark, located on Lynedoch Street, well-served by the city’s public transport links.
The Drake is the regular recipient of praise from 5pm customers, achieving an impressive 4.1/5 rating. Comments include:
