Greggs is Taking Valentine’s Day Reservations
It’s beginning to look like replacing baby Jesus with a sausage roll was just the beginning for Greggs. Following on from their successful alternative advent calendar for Christmas, the bakery is set to open its doors to lucky couples up and down the country for a Valentine’s Day meal they won’t forget!
Yes, on 14th February Greggs is opening up some of its bakeries for a four course ‘fine dining’ meal to celebrate Valentine’s Day with lovers of the Greggs baked pastry treats. Only five shops in the UK are taking part; London (Stockwell), Manchester (City Tower), Newcastle (Grainger Street), Cardiff (Queen Street) and Glasgow (Argyle Street).
Each Greggs will be transformed into restaurants designed for romance, complete with mood lighting, roses, candelabra, and white linen tablecloths. Instead of ordering at the till, guests will be waited on at their own tables, while classical music plays in the background.
Take a look at the menu below;
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.
Drinks: Italian prosecco, soft drinks, still or sparkling mineral water.
The Greggs Valentine’s Day dining experience will cost £15 for two (so £7.50 a head) and reservations will open on 7th February over at the Open Table Website. Bon appetit!
