Cheap meals on a Friday lunch time East of Scotland

Options
I was looking for some insperation. I am a care worker and myself and another carer take a lady out for lunch every friday.

We have access to a car and she really enjoys going for a drive.

We are in East Lothian but are looking for somewhere up to an hour and a half drive away. We often go to the harvester in Dunfermile and to Galashields, Biggar and Livingston.

running out of ideas and cost is an obsitcal, 2 meals for£10 or similar offer would be great. Need to get parked very close as she has walking difficulties.

Any ideas?

    What about the Crown Carvery in Ratho Park?

    They have parking outside and the carvery meal is £3.69 each

    Not sure what age your lady is so apologies if this isn't relevant however Dobbies garden centre restaurants often have a specific day where they have senior citizen meals for around the £5/£6 mark. Generally soup, main course, hot pudding and tea. May not be an every week thing but nice for a treat say once a month.

    Dobbies do a lovely 2 for one for breakfasts too
