In a hurry? Enjoy an express lunch in Restaurant at The Bonham…

Was your new year’s resolution to make more time to catch up with friends? For some of us this is easier said than done. The challenge of juggling work, family life, cooking, housework AND time to keep fit often means the month is over in a flash.

Most of us get a lunch break at work, however do we use this productively? This is the perfect excuse for a quick “feel good” catch up and giggle.

The Bonham are offering a helping hand with their superb express lunch. Instead of popping out for a sandwich and then eating it alone at your desk why not enjoy delicious food and great company. Life moves too fast, so take yourself away from that computer screen, even if only for a short time. People work better when they recharge their batteries.

For just £9 enjoy a delicious main course in Restaurant at The Bonham, followed by coffee and macaroons to take away.

Restaurant at The Bonham, Edinburgh is inspired by classic flavours which have been adapted with a contemporary twist by Head Chef Maciej Szymik and his team. Products are sourced seasonally and the dishes are simple yet elegant in style. The restaurant is characterised by sophisticated urban styling, which is loved by many whether its business or pleasure. The surroundings are cool and minimal, allowing guests to focus on the quality of the food and those they have chosen to enjoy it with.
