Mine has 20% off travel insurance as the new bonus offer. Bah.
Wow....they've even included a cheese selection.

May even try it this time.

(Although half the mains will probably be OOS when we go.)

Log onto your sparks account online and activate the offer . Then use it in store by scanning your card.
Just had a look on my card and have loads of food offers. When I worked there and had 20% off I'd never get any food Sparks offers, just clothes I'd never buy.
Always love these deals from M&S- the valentines one was excellent even at £20. Had both cuts of steak before too and can highly recommend. The rumps were almost as melt in your mouth as a fillet! Steaks, chips and profiteroles for me please
Can I recommend the Tesco meal deal of belly pork and dauphiniose potatoes as choices. Best ready meal I have ever had, restaurant quality.
The wine isn’t up to much sadly

The dine for £12 is standard in stores the Sparks card if offer is activated just allows you to get an additional side for free. So 2 sides instead of the usual 1

Well no it’s just business. When 5% or less of people are vegetarian then as a business I can’t exactly blame them for focusing on getting revenue from the other 95%

You don’t have to be vegetarian to eat vegetarian food it would just be nice to see some variation and effort put into the choices

Hi David, figures from 2018 suggest 14%, i'd be surprised if that wasn't higher now.
Equally it seems a fair argument to say that while meat alienates vegetarians, omnivores are still very capable of eating meatless. Business sense then dictates vegetarian meals are an option for 100% (minus vegans, intolerance's etc.)

According to who? That would be 10 million vegetarians. I cant find any source that quotes a number anywhere close to that level. If there were that many vegetarians then clearly there would be a lot more options in supermarkets and restaurants as the demand would be pretty significant...

I'm guessing you took it from here:

A 2018 study by comparethemarket.com found that approximately 7% of British people were vegan, while 14% were vegetarian.[107] The results of this study however are questioned by the UK Vegan Society who found out the sample was based on only 2,000 people.[108] According to The Vegan Society's larger survey, the number of vegans quadrupled from 2014–18; in 2018 there were approximately 600,000 vegans in the UK, equivalent to 1.16% of the British population as a whole. As well as this, 31% are eating less meat – either for health or ethical reasons, and 19% are eating fewer dairy products.

Even the vegan society claims their figures were nearly 7 times too high....

Thanks for your critique of the reliability of those figures. while I do agree, I'm afraid that's just the best supported evidence as I couldn't find anything to support a figure of 5%.
I'd be interested to hear your opinion on the second part of my argument.

It's quite simple that one; I imagine people who like meat don't want to just eat vegetables.

Saying "omnivores can eat vegetables too". Well, quite frankly, vegetarians can eat meat just as easily, can they not? They just choose not to. I'm not sure you can make the point omnivores can choose to conform to vegetarians preference when you can say the exact same of vegetarians choosing to not conform to everyone elses preference.

Appreciate your input. I'd say while meat eaters always have a partly/mostly vegetarian meal, a vegetarian would never have a meal containing meat.
Neither right nor wrong, don't think the argument can go any further without going into the sticky points of ethics.
Clearly m&s aren't trying to win over customers that are vegetarian or vegan. For people arguing there are more meat eaters: you have 6-9 other choices per course.

And those stats quoted in the comments are 2 years old whether they are correct or not.

Take a look at supermarkets, they have entire sections dedicated to dairy free/vegetarian /vegan including desserts.

M&s really dropped the ball here and this is coming from a meat eater.

To clarify I do totally agree with you. Does my head in when people who eat meat get arsey about eating a vegetarian meal. I'm just interesting in the ethics / morality of it all; it's difficult to "impose" a dietary preference on someone who also has their own dietary preference

I think you're very right, imposing anything is wrong from a freedom of thought perspective. Western society dictates eating dogs as a negative dietary preference, it often seems avoidance rather than imposing is the preferable course when navigating these decisions.
So rather than imposing a dietary preference, it's urging an avoidance of something that is slowly becoming a social taboo.
One day in the future we may look over this discussion and know if m&s were right to only give 1 vegetarian main course or maybe it's all a bit insignificant.

Spot on. Fair play mate, I do enjoy reasonable internet exchanges that make you think outside of your own preconceptions.

Right. Off to get a falafel and houmous wrap

Agreed! What a stupid comment. If I'm buying nice food, generally that means I want something with meat in it. I can make non meat containing foods myself at home easily and cheaply. I hate it how other peoples beliefs get pushed on everyone else in this country
