Media release: Fancy musseling in for a quickie at lunchtime?

FANCY musseling in for a quickie at lunchtime?

If so, then you’ll be glad to hear that, despite the recent increase in VAT to 20 per cent, the ever-popular Lunchtime Quickie at award-winning Scottish seafood restaurant, Mussel Inn, remains priced at only £7.50.

Mussel Inn’s lunchtime quickie menu offers an extensive selection of mussels (including natural, shallot, red pepper, leek, Moroccan, blue cheese or Mexican) or seafood chowder, both served with crusty bread, together with an Inn salad or French fries and a choice of a bottle of Carlsberg, a glass of wine or soft drink at a bargain price.

Matt Johansson, food and beverage manager at Mussel Inn, said: “Fast food is often a term associated with unhealthy and low quality food, but few foods are quicker to prepare or healthier than mussels – and mussels from Scotland are justly renowned as amongst the best in the world.

“Our co-founders are scallop and mussel farmers and we source our mussels from around 20 farms along the west coast of Scotland, from Oban to the Shetlands. Due to the very close relationship we enjoy with the Association of Scottish Shellfish Growers, we can assure any diners who fancy a lunchtime quickie that we offer the best quality mussels available anywhere in Scotland.”

Lunchtime Quickies can be had at Mussel Inn’s outlets at Hope Street Glasgow and Rose Street Edinburgh from 12.00 – 2.30pm Mondays to Fridays, 12.00 – 5pm on Saturdays and from 12.30 – 5pm on Sundays.

Located at 157 Hope Street in Glasgow and 61-65 Rose Street in Edinburgh, the award-winning Mussel Inn is renowned for its passion for its offering of delicious locally sourced fresh seafood, providing excellent value for money and a quick and friendly service.

Mussel Inn raises funds for Fishermen’s Mission, the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen. To book a table at Mussel Inn in Edinburgh call 0843 2892 283 or Glasgow call 0843 2892 283 or log onto for more information.
