I looooove a little city break in the UK and since moving back to Aberdeen last year our closest city breaks are Edinburgh and Glasgow. Few days ago Bert and I took a trip to Glasgow for a night. Here is what we got up to!
First port of call ———> Shopping! Love the variety of shops in Glasgow compared to Aberdeen
Next was onto Artisan Roast On Gibson Street for coffee and the most delicious vegan blueberry and banana loaf mmmmm. Was lovely cafe with variety of second hand furniture and locally roasted coffee in Edinburgh. Got my coffee juices following again and ignited my thoughts for a barista style coffee machine for home.
After coffee we found our way to our hotel Citizen M http://www.citizenm.com/destinations/glasgow/glasgow-hotel
Aww what a great hotel! Citizen M offers affordable luxury with compact high spec rooms and great selection of relaxing areas within the hotel bar. And then there is the bed! A super comfy XL – King size bed that fits the whole room, aaaaamazing!
After some drinks we have a peek at some local Glasgow food blogs and came across Glasgow food geek, http://www.glasgowfoodgeek.co.uk/ Pam writes the blog lives in West end of Glasgow and loves food! On her top glasgow restaurants was porter & rye and as soon as we had a peek at their website http://www.porterandrye.com/ and menu we were straight onto book a table!
Mmm Pam as spot on with her recommendation, we opted for the T bone for two with bone marrow mac n cheese, fries, peppercorn sauce and a garlic butter = NOM. Getting to choose our steak knife was a lovely touch.
The morning after the night before! Enjoyed a lovely chilled morning before checking out and heading home! Thanks Citizen M, Artisan Roast, Rye & Porter and The glasgow food geek for her recommendation!
For this post I was not rewarded by any of the companies mentioned and all my opinions are my own.
Until the next city break! ♥@Rose_Bud_Annie xxxxx
