With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, those who celebrate the occasion may be brainstorming ways to make it memorable – from working out the logistics of breakfast in bed to launching a covert operation into what that special someone’s favourite flower is.

If, this year, you would prefer not to fork out for pricey restaurant fare, there are plenty of dine-in options that could feel just as decadent (that don’t leave you with a mountain of pots and pans to wash up) – namely, supermarket dine-in deals for two.

With the likes of Sainsbury’s, Asda and Waitrose all offering their own romantic meals this year, another supermarket meal deal to have on your radar is from Tesco. Available to buy online and in store now, there’s plenty on the menu to share the love.

With a main meal, side, dessert and drink all included, it is important to note that the £12 deal is only available if you have a Tesco Clubcard – that isn’t to say you can’t buy the items individually, of course, but they will be at full price.

Find out whether the 2023 Tesco Finest dine-in deal is your cup of tea by perusing the menu here – there are some returning dishes from last year, as well as brand new additions.

Tesco Finest Valentine’s dinner for two

(Tesco)

As you might expect, the Tesco Finest Valentine’s dishes hail from the supermarket’s premium Tesco Finest range, with a main course, side, dessert and drink all included. There have been plenty of new additions for 2023 – including a bottle of prosecco that would cost £10 when bought separately – with 22 dishes in total on the menu.

If having a starter is non-negotiable for you, however, you may want to look at similar supermarket Valentine’s Day meal deals.

Moving straight into mains, new for this year is a vegetable moussaka (£6, Tesco.com), while dishes back for another year include salmon gratin (£6, Tesco.com); chicken in cabernet sauce (£6, Tesco.com); and mascarpone-and-basil risotto (£6, Tesco.com). It is worth noting there isn’t a vegan main course on the menu.

To accompany the main event, you can expect a choice of truffle mac and cheese (£2.60, Tesco.com), heart-shaped potato croquettes with black pepper and parsley (£2.60, Tesco.com) if you really want to embrace the Valentine’s Day theme, while other options include creamed spinach (£2.60, Tesco.com) and potato dauphinoise (£2.60, Tesco.com).

Of the six desserts on the menu, we have our eye on the vegan chocolate brownie heart (£3.25, Tesco.com), while other options include the raspberry royale profiteroles (£3.25, Tesco.com), millionaire’s tarts (£3.25, Tesco.com), lemon meringue cheesecake slices (£3.25, Tesco.com), and caramel melt-in-the-middle puddings (£3.35, Tesco.com).

Alcoholic tipples span Tesco finest malbec (£7.50, Tesco.com), sauvignon blanc (£7.50, Tesco.com) and cinsault rosé (£7.50, Tesco.com). If you would prefer something non-alcoholic though, there is also a choice of fizzy soft drinks including sparkling elderflower and raspberry (£5.80, Tesco.com). All of this for £12? We’ll cheers to that.
