It is said that Sunday is the day of sleeping until you feel like eating, and eating until you feel like sleeping.
We think this sounds like a perfect plan, except for one catch — who’s going to do the cooking and dishes?
Skip this conundrum by whisking your other half out to a restaurant for Sunday Lunch instead. Today’s Big Deal for a three course meal in the landmark Hotel Colessio would make a very stylish option.
Sunday lunch for two
With today’s Big Deal, two people can tuck into a hearty three-course lunch in the swish setting of the Hotel Colessio in Stirling.
This deal is available until from noon to 5pm every Sunday until the end of October.
As you can buy multiples, why not treat the whole family to a fancy lunch one Sunday?
Three course meal
You will be dining on three sumptuous courses from the hotel’s Sunday lunch menu, which has been created by an award-winning executive chef.
The menu can change, but here is a tempting sample:
Chef’s seasonal soup of the day, served with warm onion bloomer
Ham hock and apricot terrine, piccalilli, mustard aioli, red onion chutney and toasted brioche
Avocado, tomato and egg, crushed avocado, sun dried tomato and poached egg on toasted crusty bread
Hot smoked salmon and dill tian, horseradish crème fraiche, capers and ciabatta crostini
Chef’s roast of the day, rosemary roasted potatoes, vegetables, gravy and Yorkshire pudding
Garlic and thyme roasted breast of chicken, mashed potatoes, honey roasted vegetables and thyme jus
Pan seared fillet of cod, gnocchi, chorizo, green beans, sun dried tomatoes and garlic butter
Colessio steak, bacon and cheese burger, Monterey Jack cheese, streaky bacon, chilli jam and skin on chips
Roasted courgette and cherry tomato linguini, tomato ragout, fresh basil and parmesan shavings
Chef’s selection of three scoops of ice cream or sorbet
Chocolate caramel torte, crushed hazelnuts and chantilly cream
Lemon posset tart, fresh berries, raspberry meringue and coulis
Sticky toffee pudding, butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream
We’re going for the smoked salmon followed by the Chef’s roast of the day and chocolate caramel torte. How about you?
Chic grill restaurant
The Colessio is a luxe hotel in a grand Victorian building, not far from Stirling Castle.
Reminiscent of the famous London Grills, The Grill Room restaurant is decorated in a chic colour palette of black, white and silver, with table and banquette seating. This makes it a contemporary, stylish spot to enjoy a leisurely Sunday lunch.
The hotel is within an easy walk of the Thistles shopping centre, Stirling Smith Museum & Art Gallery and Stirling Golf Club, meaning you could pair your lunch with a day out of shopping, sightseeing or golfing.
Parking at the Colessio is complimentary for visitors.
Previous diners at the Hotel Colessio have posted rave reviews on TripAdvisor, including these recent ones, which we’ve edited for shortness:
‘Tried this restaurant for dinner. The meal was one of the best we have eaten. We were warmly welcomed and served by very attentive staff. All in all this ranks as one our best eating out experience. If you’re in the Stirling area this is THE restaurant to visit.’
‘Went for a return visit after thoroughly enjoying our previous visit. Did not disappoint. Everything was better than our last visit. Everyone in the restaurant should be proud of their establishment.’
‘Excellent Meal in lovely surroundings. The restaurant is very comfortable. Very elegant surroundings. The food is good with a good selection. There were four of us, my husband had scallops and our friends had lamb and smoked haddock. All these main courses were excellent. Not huge portions but well cooked and good presentation. The service was also very good. The hotel is well situated on the way up to the castle…’
