No sooner had January begun, our restaurateur clients have been busy planning those special menus for Valentine’s Day… it is, of course, a great excuse to treat that someone special in your life! And this year, Valentine’s Day falls at the weekend on a Sunday!

We know that you’re a romantic lot as we have had a tremendous response to win a pair of tickets to our Dirty Dancing competition with a pre-show meal at Rustico… Checkout our Facebook to enter!

So, where to eat out over Valentine’s weekend?

At the ever popular Bay Spice they have an exclusive menu to help you celebrate… Why not treat that someone special in your life to a wonderful Indian culinary experience! They have a choice of time for your dining pleasure. Lunch sitting: Midday-4.00pm - Dinner sitting: from 5.00pm - candlelit special. The meals conclude with Lover's Mix ice-cream and a complimentary box of chocolates plus a red rose for the ladies.
