Lochmuir is a made up place, it does not exist.

Thanks for the detailed post OP. I always wonder if the starter and 'special' drink/desserts are worth paying the extra tenner over their usual dine in deal....especially when my local m&s is never stocked properly anyway.

The main courses are a more expensive option than normal, with the beef Wellington on its own normally priced at £14

Editor

Nice post, thanks

Don't forget the chocs in addition to 3 courses and drinks!

Thanks op

Beef Wellington's are usually £14, nice, but definitely not worth £7 each. The starters are a little too fishy for my liking. If the drinks include Prosecco I'm sold.

Quality post,nice one

Dine in for 2 mice, maybe.

Looks good!

I've remembered the date this year, after getting an earful last year, for not even knowing what month it was lol.

Valentines Dine In does not launch until Thursday morning.

Rather wait for 2 for 10

I preferred last year's main course choices as they had lobster!
Still, it's not bad.

They clearly say it's a trademarked brand not a place..........

Starter, Main, Side, Dessert, Prosecco or Wine, and a box of chocolates for £20.

+1 - the similar deal that I had on New Year's Eve barely lined my stomach at all.

It did before it didn’t show respect. Capish?

Will they actually have all these choices in store or is it store specific/online. Whenever i go into m&s the choices tend to be restricted down to about 4

Check to see if you have a voucher for £5 off a £35 spend - these have been given with till receipts over the past few weeks so you could in theory buy 2 deals for £35!

Perfect for a night in front of LOTR boxset

Wife will be in Scotland. Do I hire an escort or can I get meap for one for £10?

I'll have to buy a load of these,got maccy,summer,twoo,shabs,daffers oh and deeky coming over to mine for valentines

It doesn't claim to be a place... It's a brand name... No more than kelloggs is a place.

Sounds good would be happy if oh got this & placed in oven for us & then washed up

Just use for that day?

He's right, you know.

Thanks for your long detailed list. It's very useful to have.
A little tip I do is save it as an email to my ' Own ' email and then when in M & S I know what's exactly available as M & S don't have the full list of what you can get on the display, just what you can pick.
It's also worth checking where the sides, mains, desserts are usually if they have none on their front display. So long as it has the Black sticker on the dish you choose, e.g. Starter, Side, Main and Dessert.
Great post ' Thoughtful '

Also worth asking the staff for a print out of the available drinks, which they claim they don't publish because it differs from store to store.
The real reason is because they have a preferred list, which is the stuff they want to get rid of, and a 'reserve' list which is the better stuff which probably costs more to use in case they run out. When the wines of the month are on the dine in deal they are on the reserve list.

Oh dear!

Anyone had any luck getting the Beef Wellington?, There were some in the usual place though I wasn't allowed to buy those as barcode wasn't correct . They did say the " dine in" ones had not arrived at all.
