This Valentine’s Day, food-on-the-go retailer Greggs has teamed up with OpenTable, the world’s leading restaurant booking service, to open its doors for couples to enjoy a romantic, candlelit dinner in its shops for the very first time.
This Valentine’s selected Greggs shops will be transformed into restaurants designed for romance, complete with mood lighting and music, roses, candelabras and white linen tablecloths.
Instead of ordering at the till, diners will be waited on at their own tables in the retailer’s first’fine dining’ experience, while classical music plays in the background.
Billed as the ultimate Valentine’s treat for the Greggs fan in your life, the one-night-only menu will be made entirely from Greggs’ food given a special Valentine’s twist.
Starter: A composition of canapÃƒÂ©s – seasoned pork and puff pastry slider, steak & blue cheese en croute, katsu tortilla wrap, Mexican chicken chipotle spoon, bÃƒÂ©chamel 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
To drink: Italian prosecco, soft drinks, still or sparkling mineral water
