He Loves Me He Loves Me Not….
With the celebration of Lurrve fast approaching I thought it might be a nice idea to give you a few ideas to treat the one you love to a delicious meal. While Valentines day is not something I go crazy for some of the menus I have noticed have look utterly amazing so here are a few of my top picks for you to consider….although you may want to book fast some of these spots are nearly fully booked already.
I love the V-Day menu at the Butchershop which is bursting with sexy sharing plates to share with your love. These guys never let us down with a tasty meal and definitely worth checking out.
On arrival you’ll each enjoy a glass of fizz

Paired with a 250ml carafe of Angus The Bull, NSW, Australia

While I have never actually tried the food at the Corinthian Club (it is on the list tho) I have heard really good things about their restaurant and this menu is right up my street so makes it on to the list.
This mouth-watering menu is available from Thursday 13th – Sunday 16th February 2014 between 12.00-22.00 in the brassiere.

While I have never eaten in Morblas I have eaten in the Hilton Glasgow quite a few times and the food has always been exquisite. At £40.00 per person this 5 course tasting menu has definitely piqued my interest – it looks scrumptious.
