Greggs, Pret A Manger and Marks & Spencer release their Christmas menus

Greggs, Pret and Marks & Spencer have all delighted fans by releasing their Christmas menus.  

To mark the start of the festive season, commuters’ favourite Pret has launched an indulgent menu for Christmas,  with the inclusion of hot food for the first time.

Alongside its popular sandwiches, the chain has unveiled its first ever hot Christmas range: Pigs in Blankets, which is made up of  Lincolnshire sausages wrapped in streaky bacon and served in a pot, or in a hot crusty roll with a layer of caramelised onion chutney and finished with a dab of mustard mayo. 

Alongside the return of its staples, Pret’s freshly-made Christmas Lunch, craved by customers all year round will make a welcome return, combining thick slices of British turkey with port & orange cranberry sauce, herby pork stuffing and baby spinach leaves, topped off with free-range mayo and crispy onions. 

Fans have taken to social media to share their excitement at the new menu with one writing ‘omg yas can’t wait,’ while another added: ‘The Christmas menu has arrived in Pret!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL’ .

‘Yes the world is on fire. Yes it feels never ending. But. Today. Pret’s CHRISTMAS MENU IS OUT’. IT IS ALL GOING TO BE OK BECAUSE THE CHRISTMAS MENU JUST LANDED,’ said another. 

Meanwhile Greggs has also delighted customers with the release of its range, including the return of the festive bake, and in a festive first for Greggs, the 2020 Christmas menu is available for delivery via Just Eat. 

Meanwhile, Marks & Spencer have also brought back their festive menu of Christmassy sandwiches and sweet treats.

The range includes Turkey Feast Sandwich, Mini Mince Pies as well as the a Truffled Egg & Honey Roast Ham Sandwich complete with poached egg (a first on the high-street).
