Haven’t decided where you’re taking your loved one for dinner on Valentine’s Day yet?

Why not surprise her or him with a romantic candlelit dinner for two at Greggs?

The food-on-the-go retailer has teamed up with restaurant booking service OpenTable to open its doors for a special Valentine’s meal for the very first time.

Greggs’ City Tower Manchester shop will be transformed into a restaurant 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 Greggs’ 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 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

To drink: Italian prosecco, soft drinks, still or sparkling mineral water.

The four-course set menu will cost £15 for two and will be served at Greggs City Tower Manchester shop on Wednesday 14th February at 7pm.

Tables will be available to book from Wednesday 7th February. Tables are limited to one per person (each table to seat two people) and will be a set menu.  Bookings will be on a first come first served basis.  Sittings for all tables will be at 7pm.

It doesn’t get much better than this.
