So you're voting cold because your local shop is bad at stocking/restocking? It's a good deal regardless of how bad your local delivery men are. Stupid reason for voting cold.

I enjoy cooking, I get the music on, pour a beer and get stuck in. I always end up with far superior food than shop bought ready meals! Better than restaurants too but that's just because I am an amazing cook

Great deal, the wine in the normal £10 meal deal is never up to much, would much rather have this deal and let people buy whatever beverage floats their boat.
i bought the indian meal deal two weeks ago and they were pretty good. as a vegetarian, i am pleased with the selection too. im going to get more the next time i pass by m&s
10 quids for so many food and no dishes to do. just pop them in the microwave!

You can always have beer or a no alcoholic option. The Loretto on the last deal actually gets an OK review on wotwines. Cant really complain for a tenner.
"Gastropub" what does that even mean? Does it guarantee a certain higher than usual quality of food? Sounds like marketing guff to me

You can do much better fior a tenner (including £4.00 for wine) by doing it yourself and have a good time in the process. I enjoy cooking, I get the music on, pour a beer and get stuck in. I always end up with far superior food than shop bought ready meals! Better than restaurants too but that's just because I am an amazing cook

Bit of a weird one this. I get that having a 2nd side is ideal as normally you have to choose carbs or veg. However the mains they are offering are nearly all already with carbs and based on previous deals I am presuming they are sized for 2 (though may be wrong). Is M&S trying to suggest you invite friends round and feed them a ready meal?

If it is for two then surely it would have made a lot more sense if it was starter, main, 2 sides and dessert?

very true. but as a professional and having an exam round the corner, i am all into saving time
I'm not voting one way or the other but I agree with the person that wrote 'OOS'. It's pretty clear to me that at least recently these M&S Meal Deals have been largely a lure to get you in the store in the hope that you will buy other items because when you find the steadily shrinking Meal Deal display there's very little choice out of the many items theoretically available in the offer.

Well said
I haven't voted either hot or cold but I'd make the observation that if M&S get away with cutting out the bottle of wine in the £10 deal, they will continue doing so. Perhaps if the £10 wineless deal fails we'll get the old, better one back again.

They haven't cut out the bottle of wine. This is a different meal deal with 2 mains + 2 sides. As far as I know they are still doing the wine meal deal
I agree, this is just testing the water again, to drop the free wine
Please do not support

Really? You don't have time to roast a chicken and boil/steam some vegetables?

A 1.65kg chicken costs £3.09 (you could put a dry rub like Cajun on it to make it more interesting). = 3.09
240g carrots cost about 10p (taken from 42p/kilo bag). =. 0.10
1/2 head of broccoli costs about 20p. =. 0.20
400g potatoes costs about 20p =. 0.20
160g petit pois costs about 25p. = 0.25
bisto gravy 10p (if you CBA making your own). =. 0.10
heinz tomato soup and a couple of bake a home rolls 70p (if you need a starter). =. 0.70
tesco 600g strawberry trifle £1.25. =. 1.25
Bottle of Merlot from Aldi 3.49. =. 3.49
TOTAL. =. 9.38




Chicken will take about 90 mins at gas mark 5 which gives time to prep and cook the veg

If you have a slow cooker you could get half kilo of stewing steak like shin beef or beef cheeks and put oxo, onion and carrot in with the beef when you get home thicken with a bit of corn flour and you have a stew with mash and peas with wine and trifle for under a tenner.

300g chicken Brest and a jar of uncle bens etc

300g chicken and a jar of Loyd Grossman sauce etc

300g (2 x 6oz) Aldi rump steak £3.49 with chips or jacket etc

these are all basic meals where very little skill is needed

If you want to be even more thrifty check out the reduced meat/veg/dairy isles and you might get some bargain rib eye or wild salmon etc

Maybe we should start a thread in misc on DIY dine in for a tenner and share ideas LOL

in fact next time I go shopping I will give myself a £10 budget and see what I can come up with, I will post the result in misc with pictures
I notice that most of the mains are covered in mash or cheese sauce to hide the fact there's not much meat for your money!

bloody hell you should probably open a restaraunt mate
I love the ONE veggi option, and they are NEVER in stock. This is the one thing M&S are bad at.
No steak or wine, now it's just a microwave meal for a tenner. Disappointing.

I don't think anyone would disagree with you that you can do lots from scratch cheaper. Though I would pull you on how long a whole chicken takes, especially when stuffed, which believe it or not is a big motivating factor in people buying ready made meals....half hour in the oven/six minutes in the microwave as opposed to an hour preparing and another couple of hours cooking.

As for Aldi meat, hmmm what a load of sxxxe! I've tried everything from chops to filet steak out of there on numerous occasions wanting it to be decent like their fruit n veg but it's disappointed every time! I'm wondering what planet you're on championing such third rate tosh?

The sort of planet where serving up a tin of Heinz soup is considered an adequate starter I suppose tell you what, if I went round someone's house for a nice meal and we tee'd off with tinned soup I'd spit it out on their table and go home, grabbing a takeaway on route
Generally this food is quite rich and salty. It really isn't good for you...despite the saving.

As others have observed you would be better going for simple meat and vegetables. Fresh cooked
