Eating out's an artform at The Arches.

ONE of the city's most famous arts venues is pulling out all the stops at their cafe bar and restaurant this season.

The underground restaurant of The Arches is a well-kept secret.

Designed by One Foot Taller and Timorous Beasties, the stylish cafe bar and restaurant is a popular hangout for arty types and office workers.

Often band members or artists are spotted dining in the restaurant before a live performance.

Because of the chilledout atmosphere and homely feel, the restaurant is equally suitable for a romantic meal for two or a bite to eat during a shopping spree.

The new Express Lunch Menu boasts a hearty sharing hotpot at pounds 10 for two people.

This year marks the second Christmas at The Arches for head chef Shaun Molloy, who began his career at the west end's Ubiquitous Chip.

Diners can expect the same delicious, yet quirky, food combinations this Christmas - but at prices cheaper than in 2008.

A three-course Christmas lunch will cost pounds 15.95. This includes a choice of dishes, including pan-fried red mullet with confit onion and white chocolate risotto as a starter.

Opt for The Arches' pounds 19.95 evening menu this Christmas (you'll be hardpushed to find a menu this good anywhere else for less than pounds 20) and you will enjoy a glass of Kir Royale before choosing from turkey and the trimmings, seafood and vegetarian options, or slow-braised honey and cider caramelised pork belly with pumpkin lasagne, roast baby onions, and blackcurrant jus...
