This June and July, Glasgow graduates can enjoy free courses at one of the city's newly opened restaurants.

Bo & Birdy at the luxurious Blythswood hotel, is offering this year’s Glasgow graduates a chance to eat for free.

The new restaurant, which opened in May under the culinary guidance of Scotland’s first female executive chef, Gillian Matthews, is offering a UK-first that will see recent graduates pay for their meal based on their recently achieved University degree.

Graduates who receive a First Class Honours degree will receive a complimentary three-course meal from Bo & Birdy’s new “farm to fabulous” menu.

Graduates who receive 2:1 can look forward to a choice of complimentary starters – including  the Ardunan Farm pork pie, which has fast become a firm-favourite amongst diners.

A complimentary dessert will be on offer for those who graduate with a 2:2. Choices include the more-ish Bo & Birdy salted caramel pudding with glazed banana and fudge ice cream.

Gillian Matthews, Kimpton Blythswood Square’s Executive Head Chef, said: “With so many dining options for graduates in the city, we wanted to come up with a unique way for graduates and their families to celebrate.

“By offering such a unique and new dining experience in the city, we hope our guests agree we’re bringing to life soulful, hearty dishes using the best of Scottish produce – with an added twist of course.”

The graduation menu is available for lunch and evening diners from 19 June to the 31 July and features both meat and veggie options, such as Highland Wagyu sirloin steak and the indulgent St Andrew’s Farmhouse Cheddar macaroni cheese

Bo & Birdy’s new menu is stripped back and built on the ethos that simplicity is the new luxury and provenance is essential.
