The start of the year is a notoriously quiet time for restaurants and Edinburgh is no exception. This year there are more offers than ever before which give you the opportunity to dine at some decent restaurants without making too large a dent in your wallet.
Dine Around Edinburgh 2008 is the largest and longest yet, running from 7th January-29th February. Thirty Edinburgh city centre restaurants are participating this year and you can dine at each for just Â£15 for two courses. There are some really good restaurants taking part in Dine Around Edinburgh 2008. The Edinburgh Blog’s top three picks are:
- Restaurant at the Bonham
- The Stockbridge Restaurant
All have been chosen as they’re restaurants which have a certain degree of grandeur and expense associated with them, so to be able to try them at Â£15 (plus drinks of course) offers better value (perhaps perceived value) than some of the other restaurants. I tried this promotion at the newly refurbished Haldanes a couple of years ago and it did offer excellent value for money, although the choice and quantity of the dishes were less than if dining a la carte.
It’s not just the Dine Around Edinburgh promotion which is offering affordable Edinburgh dining though. The Living Room on George Street have been e-mailing a 40% discount voucher around and I’ve also received, via e-mail, a 2-for-1 food offer from the Montpelier Group. This voucher entitles the bearer to two courses for the price of one throughout January 2008.
Anyway, never one to miss a cheap dinner, The Edinburgh Blog will be trying a few of these promotions out and writing them up here. If you’ve anymore great dining offers in Edinburgh, please let me know either through the comments below or mailXtheedinburghblog.co.uk, where X is @.
