Marks and Spencer, whose food halls are still open in high tier areas, is helping shoppers create that restaurant from home feel to mark the end of 2020. The meal deal includes a huge range of foods including vegetarian options.
To start the meal off right, M&S has four starters for customers to indulge in.
Their Our Best Ever prawn cocktail, gastropub oak-fried melting camembert, gastropub shredded duck croquettes as well as the Plant Kitchen mushroom parfait can all be picked up in the meal deal.
For mains, customers can pick from a delicious range of meals including Our Best Ever lasagne which is made from rich beef and is packed with Grana Padano béchamel sauce.
M&S’ Our Best macaroni cheese is also on the menu as well as Our Best Ever chicken Kiev, Our Best Ever steak pie and sirloin steaks.
Pudding options include gastropub chocolate melt-in-the-middle-puddings, gastropub sticky toffee pudding, gastropub tarte au citron slices, gastropub billionaire’s desserts and their chocolate and cherry dessert pots.
Marks and Spencer said: “Make New Year celebrations at home taste amazing with our incredible Dine In offer; you can choose from top-quality Our Best Ever and Gastropub dishes and luxury bubbly. The £15 offer includes a delicious main course, a side, either a starter or dessert and your choice of wine, soft drinks or box of chocs.
“For a cosy meal for two, pick up Our Best Ever steak pie and pair with rich and creamy potato gratin dauphinois. For added sparkle, pop our fresh Conte Priuli prosecco and finish on an extra-sweet note with our Gastropub sticky toffee pudding.
“Pick up your New Year Dine In in store from 28 December.”
Their newest addition to help shoppers check out their shopping faster is the Pay With Me app.
It has been rolled out across 200 stores and allows an M&S colleague to pick out customers waiting in line to pay for just a few items.
Pay With Me is fully enabled for M&S’s loyalty scheme Sparks and can take contactless payments up to £45 and card payments with no limit.
Customers can also use Apple Pay to purchase their goods, which has recently been added as a payment option on their website.
Shoppers should also check their local stores opening times before travelling.
