Some bookmakers have already set odds on it being a white Christmas. It is 4/1 for snow to fall on London, if you fancy a flutter.
A more certain bet would be to back today’s Big Deal on a festive meal for six at 1051 GWR in Glasgow’s West End.
Keeping it cosy with a wood-burning stove, 1051 GWR is a good looking and welcoming venue in which to make merry with friends or family.

Cosmopolitan bar and kitchen in West End
Originally a Victorian railway station, 1051 GWR is a cosmopolitan bar and kitchen on Great Western Road in Glasgow’s Kelvinside.
Designed in the Beaux Art style by J.J. Burnett, the building underwent an extensive refurbishment before relaunching as 1051 GWR towards the end of 2015.
The renovations revealed original sandstone walls while the newly installed train carriage-style booth seating underlines the railway heritage of the category B listed building.
1051 GWR is the first restaurant in the UK to be owned by a restaurateur with an MSc in Gastronomy and this is reflected in the carefully designed menu.
The experienced chefs, brothers Steven and Chris Caputa have 40 years food preparation experience and, along with their kitchen team, are skilled at designing dishes that allow the quality of the raw materials to shine through.
1051 GWR has quickly attracted lots of enthusiastic reviews on its 5pm Dining page where it has a combined rating of 4.4/5 from more than 180 reviews. These recent comments are typical:
‘Excellent meal! We had a lovely meal from the market menu with excellent customer service.’ Rating 5/5
‘Good, efficient restaurant. Nicely presented dishes and good selection to suit all tastes. Handy, since it has off-road parking.’ Rating 4.25/5
‘Great night. Great choice of drinks and food – dog friendly! Lovely staff.’ Rating 5/5
Christmas get together
