If you’re struggling to get a table booked for Valentine’s Day or the pressure to be the romantic you’re not is simply getting too much, fear not!

Marks and Spencer has swooped in to the rescue with the return of its iconic Dine In For Two £20 deal, which allows shoppers to pick their own three-course meals to cook from the comfort of their own home for, you guessed it, £20.

Loved-up shoppers will be able to choose from a whole array of fine cuisine this year while saving up to £16.50 on the overall cost of buying each item individually, too.

There are over thirty products included in the offer, giving customers the opportunity to create over 200 different menu combinations.

M&S

Diners can choose one starter, one main, one side, one dessert, a bottle of booze and a box of chocolates – pretty much what Valentine’s Day is all about. 

Among the starters, there is a choice between tantalising items such as oak-fired melting camembert, OBE prawn cocktail, duck parfait and leek and cheese soufflé tarts.

Sides include sweet potato fries, buttery mashed potato, and mac and cheese, while some of the drink choices range from the Echo Leyda Sauvignon Blanc, Conte Priuli Prosecco to the Norton Malbec.

M&S

Vegans will be spoiled for choice too with the vegan duck croquettes, smokey saffron aubergine steaks, and love heart churros all from Plant Kitchen, all washed down with a lovely bottle of Conte Priuli Rosé.

The tempting offer will be available for shoppers at all M&S stores from Monday February 9th all the way through to the big day itself on February 14th.

Its restaurants are known for their flamboyant, retro interiors, resembling vintage maximalism Italian eateries, as well as US-style red sauce joints.

Big Mamma Group

The regularly changing menus feature a variety of Italian classics, including fettuccine alfredo al tartufo, spaghetti with meatballs, a famous ’10 level’ lasagne and carbonara served in a huge cheese wheel.

The Manchester restaurant will be the first UK venue to be located outside of London and will – sit alongside the also announced Japanese-Peruvian restaurant Chotto Matte, also to be built at St Michael’s.

The move follows a host of other operators in the capital choosing to open new sites in Manchester.

Big Mamma Group

Soon to arrive in the city will be the likes of Caravan, Flat Iron, Soho House and Blacklock.

Big Mamma – which was founded in 2013 by French entrepreneurs Victor Lugger and Tigrane Seydoux – has more than 20 restaurants across Europe including Paris, Monaco, Milan, Madrid and Berlin.
