We hate to be the bearer of bad news but Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us. If you’ve not got a date for V-Day, the heart shaped chocolate boxes and teddies in Tesco get old fast, and if you have got a date, the pressure is ON. Where do you go? What do you do? Dinner? Cinema? Splash out on a hotel room for the night? The awkward “So-Do-You-Think-We’re-Valentines-Day-Official” conversation for the newly courting. And then presents. Do you go with romantic or funny? And we haven’t even started on what you’re going to wear yet!

This is stressful stuff and enough to make you throw in the towel now. But fear not! Greggs, champion of breakfast foods and the people is here to save you.

We know what you’re thinking: “Greggs + Valentine’s Day? How is that going to work?”

Well, you’re in for a treat. Greggs is giving its loyal customers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of fine dining for Valentine’s. The pastry pros have teamed up with OpenTable to transform some shops into romantic restaurants complete with candles, mood lighting, roses, and white tablecloths. Who says Greggs don’t know how to get in the mood for love?

Instead of waiting in line to grab a tea and roll to go, diners will be waited on for the complete fine dining experience. A special Valentine’s menu has even been curated. For starters, we have a selection of canapes featuring pastry sliders (obviously), tortilla wraps, and béchamel toasted honey curated ham. Fancy. For main, you’ve got your classic Greggs order – a puff pastry parcel, straight outta the oven, garnished with fresh greens and a side of tattie slices. And for dessert, of course it’s a selection of miniature doughnuts for you to feed each other while you make googley eyes over the candles. And to drink? Why only the finest Italian prosecco.

What’s not to love? You get all your Greggs faves served in a Valentine’s setting. And it’ll only cost you £15 for the two of you. Bargain! Forget the stress of having to pick which expensive restaurant to book and the disappointment of being served tiny portions of unappetising fare. Head to Greggs for a wine-and-dine experience you’ll never forget.

A four-course set menu will cost £15 for two and will be served at 7pm at a selected Greggs shops. Reservations can be made from 7 February. To find out more, visit their website.
