Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November, The Honours at Malmaison
Heading to town for a bite to eat this weekend? Fancy some Scottish flavours with brasserie-influenced dishes in a stylish setting? Why not try the lunch or early dining offer available on Friday’s and Saturday’s at Martin Wishart’s award-winning restaurant, The Honours. For only £60, diners can enjoy a Chateaubriand for two, served with duck fat chips, crispy onion rings, green salad and Bearnaise sauce. It also includes 2 glasses of wine and tea or coffee to finish. On a more festive note, why not check out their superb range of Christmas offers? We’re personally looking forward to trying out their brand new Festive Menu, which will be served between 18th November – 24th December. For more information and times, check out their website.
