Dinner at The Grill on the Corner, Glasgow


Our wedding is less than 6 months away and I am probably the world's most unorganised bride. There's still so much to do and I keep just putting things off to avoid feeling stressed about it all! Probably not the best idea. One thing I have been doing lately is trying to find a MUA for the day. I had my first ever spray tan and a make-up trial on Friday before we headed down to Glasgow for the weekend! I'm not usually a high maintenance kinda girl so I made the most of feeling pretty for a change and booked us a table at Glasgow's Grill on the Corner.


I'd heard lots of good things and was looking forward to a few cocktails and a decent feed with my future husband! The Grill on the Corner is the perfect setting for a romantic Valentine's dinner, The restaurant is charmingly lit with fancy chandeliers, grand candelabra and twinkling fairylights hanging from the windows, giving it a sexy, sophisticated atmosphere. We arrived early and started with a drink in the bar. The cocktail list is right up my street with so many fruity flavours - I'd recommend the passionfruit fizz or a good old Pornstar martini! 


As it was my first week of my new training and nutrition plan with Nemesis, I was determined to stay on track! Luckily I have a generous carb allowance so I enjoyed the baked sweet potato wedges to start, while Gordon devoured a delicious looking plate of salt and pepper calamari. You can't go to a grill without eating something, well, grilled so we both opted for steaks for our main course! A medium cooked 310g rump steak with baked potato and peppercorn sauce for me, and 200g fillet, rare, with home cut chips for Gordon. My steak was slightly tough but tasted awesome and I was impressed with the baked potato. Crispy skin, full of flavour and perfectly fluffy inside - healthy options need to taste good too! Both were a good size and so filling that we didn't have any room for dessert! Probably a good thing cause, you know, macros...


The decor, food and service were all first class. Staff were friendly and professional throughout. I'd recommend becoming a Blackhouse Card Member if you're planning a visit - I joined a few days before our booking, showed the waitress the e-mail and received 20% off our bill! Get your next date night planned and get to the The Grill on the Corner at 21-25 Bothwell Street - on the corner, obviously!
