Went online today and you can pre-book your collection slot. Nothing really different to last year, was hoping for a new yummy dessert but at least they had Christmas Colin!

We had M&S shin of beef, turkey crown and ham on boxing day last year with some of their deserts. I was cooking for 12. The food was delicious and easy to do. Due to covod I don't think we will be entertaining the same this year and won't be able to afford m&s either.

I just came on to say this - my order's placed! grin

Never ordered from M&S before but am contemplating getting a few bits, particularly desserts. Is there anything anyone would particularly recommend? Is it actually any better than say top end Asda/Sainsbury’s etc? Thanks

We are ordering the shin of beef again. And a colin.

Had the beef last year and it was amazing.

Christmas Colin looks amazing but dd is coeliac and dh hates chocolate and I really don't think I ought to eat a whole Colin. 😁

Can you point me to the right part of the website for this please? Can't find it anywhere!

BeaLola Wed 30-Sep-20 13:17:40

Can I ask having never used it before do you have the chance to edit your order after placing to add extras like you can do for a Tesco's grocery shop or once placed is that it ?

I ordered the shin of beef last year, and when I went to collect my order they didn't have any left! They said they'd only received half the amount of them they ordered. Will try again this year.

Thanks, that's the turkey ordered plus a Colin and and cheese cake.

I love the mushrooms in pastry thing. I bought for a veggy one year and have bought again since as it's so lovely.

My local store is sold out of collection slots already. Think there must be loads of people not wanting to go shopping because of Covid. Can you book a slot and edit your order later like you do with Asda? Or is it one order and done?

Thanks for the heads up OP Ordered!! smile

That's really early; it's normally in early October. Obviously trying to get ahead of the crowds!

Ok that's just made me panic buy Christmas dinner. All booked.

I'm not sure it is significantly better than many supermarket top range things to be honest but I do think the quality is more consistent and reliable - whereas you supermarket can be more hit or miss between different products.

I do a supermarket British frozen turkey, but m&s for stuffing and cakes/desserts. I like m&S quiche. Bread good too.

Oblomov20 Wed 30-Sep-20 15:15:07

Blimey. Sold out already?

Trumpton Wed 30-Sep-20 15:31:29

22nd not available .
I got an early slot on 23rd .

Yes you can add stuff to your order later .

Thank you. I went for a turkey, sides and several desserts.

Is there a way to add to your order online or is it only via the customer care telephone?

FourPlasticRings Wed 30-Sep-20 16:00:16

Super! Thanks for the heads up

Splodgetastic Wed 30-Sep-20 16:04:59

I want to marry Colin.

Dillo10 Wed 30-Sep-20 16:29:36

Thanks for the heads up!
10am Xmas eve booked
We go to my mums every year and I always make all the "sides" from scratch - cauliflower cheese, red cabbage, stuffing etc.
This year I will be 6 months pregnant so it's all going to be M&S!
Added a Colin and a cranberry topped pork pie for good measure wink
