Greggs to host Valentine's candlelit dining experience

Greggs has teamed up with OpenTable to introduce a candlelit dinner in its shops for the very first time.

Selected shops will be transformed into restaurants designed 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 the retailer’s first ‘fine dining’ experience, while classical music plays in the background.

The menu will include a special four-course meal made from Greggs favourites consisting of classic canapes such as seasoned pork puff pastry sliders, love heart garnished bakes, brochette of doughnuts – all accompanied by Italian prosecco.

A Greggs spokesperson said, “For the first time in our history, we wanted to offer the public the opportunity to enjoy their Valentine’s Day evening in the comfort of their local Greggs. We’re delighted to offer this experience for fans for one night only – whether they’re on a first date or have been married for 30 years, we can guarantee it will be a night to remember.”

Adrian Valeriano, VP EMEA, OpenTable, added, “We are really excited to be working with Greggs to deliver reservations for this unique Valentine’s dining experience. For fans of Greggs this is a one night only occasion and we didn’t want to miss out on the chance to help romance blossom on this exclusive evening.”

The four-course set menu, accompanied by prosecco or soft drinks, will cost £15 for two and will be served at five Greggs shops nationwide on Wednesday 14th February, at 7.00pm.   

Tables will be available to book exclusively via OpenTable - www.opentable.co.uk/greggs.
