Get ready to fall in love with the £20 M&S Valentine’s dine-in menu


If you are deciding how to spend your Valentine’s Day, then look no further because Marks and Spencer have got it covered with their £20 Valentine’s dine-in menu.

We would expect big things from the popular retailer and they have not disappointed with a knockout 4-course menu.

Marks and Spencer are offering restaurant-quality food, and what’s nicer than being able to enjoy it from the comfort of your own home? With this deal, there is a huge maximum saving of £19.30, so there is no need to splash out this Valentine’s Day.

For only £20, Marks and Spencer are offering a starter, main, side, dessert, box of chocolates and a bottle of fizz for two people. So what do we have to look forward to?

The menu aims to please a variety of customers with over 35 products in the offer, allowing customers to create over 200 different menu combinations and for the first time ever, Marks and Spencer are offering a full vegan menu.

There is a wide selection of starters to choose from including salmon and king prawn stacks, gastropub camembert with chutney and vegan sweet potato falafels. Or perhaps you’d prefer a cheese and leek soufflé tart? From seafood to delicious pub grub, it seems there is a starter for everybody on this list.

For the main dish, meat lovers are in for a treat, with rump steak with peppercorn sauce, pork shoulder with honey, gastropub chicken and prosciutto and gastropub beef bourguignon all on the menu. Butterflied sea bass fillets, baked ricotta stacks and a vegan roasted mushroom stroganoff are also available.

In terms of sides, we reckon it will be hard to choose with garlic mushrooms, triple cooked chips, parmesan mash and truffled cauliflower cheese all up for grabs. For the vegan options you can choose from tenderstem asparagus spears, chantannay carrot and parsnips and extra fine asparagus.

You will make sure to leave room for dessert when you hear what is available. Profiterole stacks, billionaire desserts and apple and almond slices are on the menu, or if you would like something a bit lighter you could have the vibrant macaroons or the vegan option of strawberries in a heart shaped punnet. How sweet...

And just when you thought you couldn’t possibly eat anything else, you can top it all off with a box of chocolate hearts. It is Valentine’s Day after all!

To wash it all down, you can choose from a selection of fizz, red, white and rose as well as non-alcoholic drinks.

Director of Product Development, April Preston said, “This year’s Valentine’s Day Dine In menu is an absolute showstopper and is incredible value for customers. We’ve been really focused on creating a menu that caters for everyone’s favourites including the first ever vegan three course option, so everyone can choose something they love”.

The offer runs from 12th to 16th of February.

So whatever you are celebrating on the 14th - whether it be Valentine's, Galentine's or Palentine's – make it a delicious evening.
