The owner of Toby Carvery and All Bar One is set to close up to 20 of its pubs and restaurants across the UK.

It comes following a slump in sales this year due to the closure of the hospitality sector throughout parts of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Owner Mitchells & Butlers is currently working with advisers at CBRE to offload a number of leasehold sites.

They have not confirmed how many jobs would be affected by the closures.

The statement reads: “As announced in September, M&B re-opened the vast majority of its estate, approximately 95 per cent, after the first lockdown ended.

“The remaining sites have been under review on a case-by-case basis since, taking into account factors such as expected footfall and business layout.

“We have taken the difficult decision not to reopen some of these sites and are working with leaseholders on next steps.”

Due to the tightening of restrictions across England, Mitchells & Butlers said it was facing ‘significant difficulties’.

The company announced that sales had dropped by 35% since the start of the year up to September 19th.

They added that the future is ‘challenging and uncertain’, in light of the possibility of further lockdown restrictions.

You can get your hands on some free McDonald’s nuggets next week, thanks to a special Black Friday deal.

Maccies fans can grab the free McNuggets when they order through Just Eat.

You will, however, also need to order a Big Mac or Big Mac meal to claim the free portion of six nugs – which normally retail for £3.29.

McDonald’s

A single Big Mac will set you back £3.29, while a meal with a drink and side will cost £4.49, although prices do vary in different locations.

In even better news, you can get the free nuggets when you order the brand new double Big Mac from the Christmas menu, which will cost you £4.19 for the burger or £5.69 for a meal.

The deal will run from next Monday, November 23rd, until the Friday, November 27th, and is available at all Maccies that use Just Eat – the fast food chain has 849 restaurants that are on the delivery service.

All you have to do is add the Big Mac product of your choice to the basket and a pop-up will appear on the app asking you to claim the McNuggets – you can only claim one box of nugs per order.

Andrew Kenny, UK managing director of Just Eat said: “While our customers are hunting out the best Black Friday deals online, Just Eat is delighted to be able to deliver some extra joy to their homes.”

Whenever I order a Big Mac I always get some nugs on the side anyway, so I for one can’t wait for next week…

A local sandwich delivery concept in Prestwich will now be offering a vegan Chippy T.

It’s great news for vegans who might often find themselves missing out on a delicious chippy tea. 

The plant-based fish and chip butty will launch on November 20th – this Friday, the perfect day for chippy tea! – and will be the first of its kind in North Manchester. 

Sansan is a sandwich delivery service operating in Prestwich offering all your favourite type of butties, from chicken fried steak to vegan VLT (pictured below).

Around half of the menu currently caters to vegans but the new Chippy T will be a welcomed and delicious addition.

The Vegan Chippy T is made with beer-battered banana blossom, mushy peas, homemade tartare sauce and a handful of salt and vinegar chips, served on a buttered English muffin.

Sam, chef and co-founder said: “We want to create vegan sandwiches that shouldn’t have to be compared to their meat alternatives, these are great stand-alone flavours in their own right.”

Sansan delivers Tuesday through to Friday in Prestwich and Whitefield. They’ve also got a weekend pop-up open for takeaway on Saturdays 12-5pm.
