Did you keep your New Year’s resolutions? Don’t feel bad if the answer is ‘no’. Who has the motivation to stick to anything in deepest, darkest winter?
We think it’s a much better idea to make resolutions in spring. And if you’re stuck for inspiration, how about promising to dine out more often this year?
You can get off to a flying start by sampling Urban Bar & Brasserie’s new springtime menu. Today’s Big Deal gives you the chance to try three seasonal courses, so why not stick a daffodil in your hair and head out for an elegant meal?
Three course meal with Prosecco for two
Valid until 30th April 2019, this Big Deal offers the chance to enjoy a three course meal from Urban’s springtime menu, which features a superb New York striploin steak.
The offer is available for lunch or dinner and is served with a glass of Prosecco each, making it ideal for a lunchtime catch-up with a friend, pre-theatre meal or romantic dinner.
You can dine on Sunday from 12.30pm to 9pm, Monday to Thursday from noon to 9pm, and Friday from noon to 5pm.

Urban Bar & Brasserie is situated on St. Vincent Place, and is actually the former home of the Bank of England’s Scottish headquarters, so it is an impressive spot for a meal. Inside, you will find an Art Deco dining room that blends old school elegance with a contemporary edge.
Wherever possible, Chef Colin Duffy uses locally sourced and seasonal ingredients to create eclectic food with a strong French ethos. Menus are complemented by a well thought out wine list.
