Greggs have revealed that they’re taking their pastry and pie offering to the next level this February, by offering fans the chance to ‘dine-in’ at selected shops across the UK to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Gone will be takeaway paper bags full of pastries and sausage rolls, as for one night only Greggs is opening its doors after hours to baked-good loving couples who want to celebrate Valentine’s Day a little differently this year.
Greggs fans who manage to score a table in one of the stores will be treated to a one-night-only four course menu made entirely from Greggs’ food with a special Valentine’s twist.
The menu on offer for the lucky few is as follows:
Starter: A composition of canapés – seasoned pork and puff pastry slider, steak & blue cheese en croute, katsu tortilla wrap, Mexican chicken chipotle spoon, béchamel toasted honey cured ham square and tomato gazpacho
Main: Your choice of signature Greggs puff pastry parcel, freshly baked to order, accompanied by oven roasted spiced potato slices and a garnish of fresh Apollo and spinach leaves and sunblush tomatoes
Dessert: A brochette of miniature doughnuts paired with a rich butterscotch flavoured dipping sauce
Petits Fours and Coffee: Belgian dark chocolate brownie, raspberry and almond bite and caramel shortbread. Accompanied by freshly ground Fairtrade coffee made using our own unique blend of mild Arabica beans from Peru and Colombia and rich tasting Robusta beans from Tanzania
Couples will be able to wash down their Greggs feast with a choice of prosecco, soft drinks or sparkling water.
Greggs has teamed up with OpenTable to taking bookings via their website in five different locations around the UK: London, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle and Cardiff.
Announcing their one-off Valentine’s Day dining experience, a Greggs spokesperson said, ‘For the first time in our history, we wanted to offer the public the opportunity to enjoy their Valentine’s Day evening in the comfort of their local Greggs. We’re delighted to offer this experience for fans for one night only – whether they’re on a first date or have been married for 30 years, we can guarantee it will be a night to remember.’
