Ok, so it's not M&S (before anyone says) but for a fiver this aint a bad deal at all. You get the choice of 1 main and 2 side dishes for £5

All are fresh items and include things like:

Salmon En Croute
Gammon & Pineapple
Ready To Roast Beef Joint
Ready To Roast Lamb Joint with Rosemary
Ready To Roast Chicken Joint
Chicken breasts wrapped in bacon and cheese
Steak Burgers with Peppercorn Sauce
(there are a few others too but cant remember them)

then choose 2 side dishes

Summer Vegetables
Broccoli Carrot & Cauliflower
Baby Potatoes in Herb Butter
Carrot, Swede & Potato Mash
Cauliflower Cheese
Cabbage & Leek Meledy

Pretty good price imo

Starts Wednesday!

are the S&M ones really great?

Very similar to the M&S ones price wise - add in a £4 bottle of wine reduced down from £8 and grab a pudding, should be around a tenner. Selection looks quite good too

My co-op doesn't have a cafe/restaurant.

It's to cook at home (the Eat In is just the name of the range)

So it's a take away....

Nope you have to cook it at home. Lol!

How bizaar.

scoff

How bizaar.


It IS bizarre, damn supermarkets selling us food then expecting us to go home and cook it!

sounds a good deal feeding my boyfriend the weekend mite try the roast lamb cauliflower cheese and the baby potatoes should fuel his engine lol

Only the very largest stores have the full selection of 12 mains, expect to be disappointed if your local is a small store!

We're a small store and are carrying the full range

We're a big store and are only carrying 9 of the lines, one of which failed to show up on delivery this morning!

Ok, so it's not M&S...

That's a good thing, whenever M&S do this sort of deal "Eat in for XXX £"...the selection of food is normally really low quality crap or tiny portions of nothing.

tiny portions of nothing.



as opposed to large amounts of nothing?

oO

Don't think this is as good as other offers out there for meals in, as this is only 1 course and no wine.

Tesco = 2 courses and bottle of wine - £9
M&S = 2 courses and bottle of wine - £10

I don't like wine (actually I don't like any alcohol) so never buy deals that include wine.


I wouldn't mind givng this deal a try.

Yeah, but there are non-alcohol equivalents on offer from Tesco, M&S etc - my point was that they represent better value for money, as they offer another course and drinks for 4-5 quid more.

I also think the quality of the range on offer at the other places is better too.

have you people ever thought about cooking meals from scratch? might save you a lot

damn it, you have a boyfriend !! LOL

Not the best of seclection in my local store and the mains portion sizes can be quite small for 2 people on some of the dishes

I tried the Chicken with bacon and cheese, and was more than happy with the portion size. You each get a chicken breast which is very nice, and we had cauliflower cheese and mash as side dishes which were good sizes too. Thumbs up from me.

You really don't know what you're talking about do you? Stick to the takeaway!

I'm sorry but I'm still deliberately avoiding Co-op deals on account of their annoying catchphrase. However many voiceover men with accents they use, "good" still doesn't rhyme with "food"!
