    You can choose from a selection of :

    a main meal
    +
    a side dish (vegetable accompaniment)
    +
    a dessert
    +
    a bottle of wine

    and these 4 items bought together will cost you 10.

    The mains to choose from are: whole Oakham chicken (large one), the Cook! chicken and caesar melt, the Cook! pork medallions, the Cook! salmon and soy, the nelting middle salmon fishcakes and the vegetable moussaka.
    The side dishes are: caesar veg, tenderstem broccoli, house salad bowl and the British mini new potatoes.
    The desserts to choose from are: 2 lemon souffle, 2 creme caramel, 2 melt in the middle puddings, 2 fruit tarts and 2 strawberry and raspberry cheesecakes.
    The wines are: the Classic Claret, the Gargeanega Pinot Grigio and the California Zinfandel Rose.

    All the products should be clearly stickered and will probably all be placed in the same place so it is easy to find them.

    I can't remember everything they have added but the things I know for sure are desserts include the profiterole stack, strawberry tarts, raspberry panna cotta, more wines include Clear Lake Cabernet and Chardonnay and Wood Haven Shiraz and Chardonnay.
    It should all be put in the same fridges though to make it easier for customers to choose from.

    M&S in Bristol Cribbs was brilliant all the items were put at the end of each row in sections.

    So end of row 1 was the meats (main meals)
    end of row 2 vegetables and salad
    end of row 3 puddings
    bottles of wine on the side of row

    well set out and easy to see what is what.

    Bath had run out of all main meals in the offer so were letting you choose any main meal and gave you 5 off your total so I got a nice salmon dish worth 5.99 so total came to 11 something, still not a bad offer. Hopefully tthey'll have more stock next time if its going to be a regular thing.

    Well I think my local M&S have made a huge mistake

    Hubby went in Friday afternoon to get us a deal for a tenner.

    When he got to the shelf where the meals were, there was a member of staff apologizing they had run out of puds and handing out a voucher for ten pounds.

    He got to the till and only had 26p to pay.

    What a good deal thinks hubby and goes again to look what is left. gets given another tenner voucher with apologies for no puddings.

    Gets to the till and 1.32 to pay.

    So now we have two meals for two and two bottles of wine costing less than 2.

    On his way out he picks up yet another voucher and told if he comes back next day, they will have restocked.

    Off he trots next morning and yet another meal for two with bottle of wine and pudding.

    He is not normally one to spot a bargain but I think someone has made a huge error. ........I aint complaining.

    Im soooo proud of him.

    Customers were coming in during the afternoon expecting the shelfs to be full with this deal only to find out we had sold out of most of it (especially all the chickens). At around 2pm today we had removed all the signage promoting the offer.
