Whether you love or hate the tradition of Valentine’s Day, there’s no denying that it’s a great time of year to get a deal on a meal – especially if you’re planning a cosy night in. The M&S Valentine’s Dine In is one of the most popular promotions of the season, and judging by the menu we’ve just seen, 2020 might be the store’s best offering yet.
For £20, you can get a three-course extravaganza, with decadent options including steak, baked camembert, rack of lamb and profiteroles. Veggies and vegans are also well catered for, with delights like sweet potato falafel and butternut and red onion en-croute – in fact, there’s over 200 possible menu combinations to create.
But of course, it’s not just dinner that’s included – every package includes a box of heart-shaped chocolates, and your choice of drink.
Select a bottle of fizz, white, red, rose and a non-alcoholic drink – or if you’re feeling really fancy, you can also opt for the new glittery From Mojito to You cocktail, a romantic reinvention of the shop’s smash-hit Christmas gin snowglobe, complete with flakes of 23 carat gold leaf.

We have introduced delicious new options this year whilst bringing back the classics that we know our customers love. For chocolate lovers – you must try the Nuts About You Cheesecake – it is magical!’
