Good ol’ M&S. Despite it only appearing for a week at a time, the Marks and Spencer £10 meal deal is iconic. Where else could you get a high quality main, some fairly tempting sides and an often luscious dessert – along with a bottle of whatever you fancy – and dine for two for just £10?
However, we’ve noticed here at vouchercloud that it’s near impossible to discover the kind of dishes that are on the Marks and Spencers meal deal menu until it’s actually live – and then it’s only for a week at a time. So, let us guide you through some of the typical items you’re likely to discover, and share some of our personal favourites.
And boy, are there some personal favourites.

Menu is updated as of 19th May 2016. Dishes included in the Dine in for Two Deal may vary from store to store and from promotion to promotion.
M&S Sirloin and Rump Steak
Considering the ready-to-cook and straight in the oven approach to many of the dishes – not that there’s anything wrong with that – Marks and Spencer is becoming quite the expert in selling some pretty high quality steak that you can lovingly prepare at home.
The rump and sirloin steak available in the M&S two dine in for £10 deal is as good as it sounds, and is definitely a cost-effective approach to picking out the items for your meal deal. Four thick-cut sirloin and fillet steaks cost £28 and £26 respectively in the normal Marks and Spencer range, and although you may not get the same size and quality with the meal deal, you’re looking at some true quality at a pretty competitive price.
Cows from specially selected farms, reared on a grass and cereal diet, are a guarantee though. Partner these up with the crispy wedges or garlic potatoes for a classic combination, or stick with some greens for a slightly healthier contrast (until you tuck into your Millionaire’s Shortbread, that is).
The Utiel Requena GSM, one of M&S’ staple house reds, is a perfect wine to accompany.
M&S Ready to Roast Gammon
Just because it’s an oven-friendly dish, doesn’t mean you aren’t going to be eating something great. the ready to roast gammon is a Marks and Spencers staple, and comes in at a healthy £5.49 in the standard range. That’s quite the healthy profit margin you’re tucking into.
… it’s also, obviously, delicious.
Gammon and minted new potatoes are an ideal combination, while the broccoli, carrot, courgette and fine beans combo is another wonderful accompaniment.
Crisper white wines can work really well with gammon, and picking out one of the Chardonnays in the wine selection could leave you with a pretty delicious combination.
M&S Tarte au Citron
The M&S Tarte au Citron, when you buy a full cake, comes in at a healthy £10 – so take two slices out of a 12 slice tarte and you’re looking at a decent £1.66 worth. Not too bad, especially considering the mark up.
Again, it’s also a Marks and Spencer speciality, famed for thin and crispy pastry and a tart but well flavoured filling – something of a perfect palate cleanser after some of the heavier dishes available in the meal deal.
Although the strong citrus flavours are notoriously difficult to match with wine, a punchy chardonnay can do the trick fairly elegantly.
Who can argue with the best of French?
M&S Millionaire’s Shortbread
See, now? NOW you’re talking.
Obviously it’s hard to go wrong with caramel, chocolate and biscuit – in fact, you’re pretty much guaranteed success feeding me any combination of three at any point.
But there’s something rather luxurious, rather iconic, and rather irrefutably irreplaceable about the Marks and Spencer Millionaire’s Shortbread.
M&S Meal Deal Dates
A quick note on the dates of Marks and Spencer 2 Dine for £10 meal deals – they are never released in advance.
However, you can check on the website for a variety of ways to be first in line when new dates are announced. Aside from checking out the in-store advertising, you can subscribe to free text alerts by texting FOOD1 to 65006 – that way, if you’re out and about when a text comes in, you can barge through other shoppers to get to M&S first, like the crazy deal-hungry foodie you are.
You can also keep an eye out on vouchercloud for any ongoing Marks and Spencer deals and offers, as we’ll keep you in the loop when there’s something worth saving your money on (and credit goes to M&S for the assortment of pictures, of course).
You can also scout through our review of the Ocado meal deal to see what else is out there – if you’re curious!
