M&S has cut the price of its Dine In meal deal to £10, but you’ll no longer get a bottle of wine or non-alcoholic drink. Is the food offer still good value?
M&S has made a big change to its hugely-popular Dine In meal deal.
The food offer previously let savvy shoppers pick up a main, side and dessert plus a bottle of wine or non-alcoholic alternative for £12.
However, M&S has now removed the drink option and changed the price to £10.
Long time M&S Dine In fans will remember that the offer was actually priced at £10 up until 2018, so M&S has now simply reverted to that price but removed the drink.
Is the Dine In meal deal still good value?
Given the wine was worth around £7 on its own, there's no question the deal is less attractive to those who really enjoyed a tipple with their meal.
That said, the revised deal still works out cheaper than buying the items included in it separately.
For example, getting a steak pie, potato gratin dauphinoise and profiterole stack separately would set you back around £13.
If you’re interested in getting a bottle of wine (or non-alcoholic alternative) as part of a meal deal, you could try the Tesco Finest deal, which offers one side, main, dessert and drink for £10.
While Tesco’s deal offers less choice, you would get better value for money.
I don’t know where I’ve been, but how scandalous that M&S Dine in for Two no longer includes a bottle of wine? 😭— HelenaParkinsonArt👩🎨 (@hs_parky) January 7, 2021
What M&S said about the meal deal changes
According to an M&S spokesperson, the Dine In deal was changed so that customers who don’t drink alcohol can enjoy the offer, although arguably this was always the case.
“We want our much-loved Dine In menu to offer you delicious, restaurant-quality food at a fantastic price,” the spokesperson said.
“We've lowered the price of our Dine In offer to £10, and it now includes our very best quality dishes, with lots from our premium Gastropub and Our Best Ever ranges.
“This also means customers who don't drink alcohol can enjoy Dine In.
“If you do fancy some wine alongside, there are some excellent, great-value pairings as chosen by Fred Sirieix on our menu cards in store.”
@marksandspencer Why is the wine missing from the dine for two? I’d rather pay £12 and have wine included!! Also, the menu looks suspiciously similar to usual dine for two! Why try and make it look different by adding Fred?— Helen Bish (@HelsbellesBish) January 6, 2021
