Media Release: La Bonne Auberge says, ‘Let them eat steak’


JUST before the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a major flashpoint in the French Revolution, Queen Marie Antoinette famously said, “Let them eat cake”.

On Sunday 14 July, to celebrate the 38th birthday of La Bonne Auberge, Glasgow’s original French brasserie will create its own culinary storm when diners get the chance to eat steak (and French Fries) for just £1, with the proceeds going to the restaurant’s adopted charity, Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Says a spokesperson: “Founded in 1975 by hospitality guru and self-confessed Francophile, Maurice Taylor, the multi, award-winning La Bonne Auberge still continues to flourish and remains one of the city’s favourite haunts.

“Indeed, the restaurant is currently in the running for the title of ‘Glasgow’s Favourite Business’, one of the categories in the prestigious Glasgow Chamber of Commerce Business Awards and sponsored by the Evening Times.”

Commenting on the restaurant’s forthcoming birthday celebrations, Taylor says: “We believe that every day, we offer the best food and service in Glasgow so, what better way to share our birthday celebrations than to offer our customers a mouth-watering French dish for a ludicrously low price… and help our nominated charity in the process.”

Strident supporters of Marie Curie Cancer Care, last year La Bonne Auberge and its sister hotel, the award-winning Holiday Inn Theatreland marked the Holiday Inn’s 60th birthday by ‘gifting’ 60 free twin room nights (valued in excess of £5,000) to end of life care charity to be used by the charity’s nursing staff, patients and their families, absolutely free of charge.

The first 100 diners into La Bonne Auberge on Sunday 14 July will receive a generous serving of the classic French dish for £1, for one day only… Doors open at 12.30pm.
