Pret launches new dinner range for delivery

Pret A Manger is all set to launch a new dinners menu in lockdown inspired by some of the nation’s favourite dishes.

Exclusively available for delivery via delivery partners, the new Dinners by Pret range has extended its trial and will be available from 30 shops from this Thursday, 19 November.

Freshly made from Pret’s kitchen to be enjoyed in your home, the delicious menu has something for everyone. The range introduces new freshly baked to order focaccia-based pizzas: Tomato, Mozzarella & Pesto and Mozzarella & Prosciutto.

Pret’s Mixed Focaccia Pizza Box option is perfect for sampling the two new rosemary and focaccia-based pizzas as it comes packaged up with one piece of each.

With Christmas just around the corner, Pret have unveiled another new hot baked dish combining everyone’s favourite Christmas dish with a cheesy comfort classic: that’s right - Pigs in Blankets Mac and Cheese. The festive bake is joined alongside Pret’s iconic Mac and Cheese range including: Prosciutto Mac and Cheese, Kale and Cauliflower Mac and Cheese and Lasagne Mac and Cheese.

Wintery evenings upon us, the creation of five new hot rice bowls will be a welcomed takeaway addition to households at night – that’s right, Pret now does dinner exclusively available for delivery.

Classics like curry and chili make an appearance including the Thai Red Chicken Curry Hot Rice Bowl which includes pulled chicken in a fragrant Thai red curry sauce finished with hot sweet potato, chargrilled peppers, crunchy coconut chips and sliced spring onions.

Joining the fiesta is the Chipotle Chicken Burrito Hot Rice Bowl - delicious pulled chicken on a bed of hot rice served topped with sliced avocado and sweetcorn salsa and accompanied by a side of Pret’s famous spicy chipotle ketchup.

The new dinners menu also includes three new vegan friendly hot rice bowls including the Sweet Potato Chilli Hot Rice Bowl, made with Pret’s warming vegetarian bean and red pepper chilli, the Sticky Aubergine Hot Rice Bowl served with a deliciously tangy tamari and ginger dressing and a Thai Sticky Aubergine Curry Hot Rice Bowl. These three new dishes are joined alongside Veggie Pret favourite, Butternut Squash and Cauliflower Gratin bake.

Spicing up dinners is the brand-new Spicy Chicken Enchilada bake made from one of our famous kibbled rye wraps filled with British chicken and our rich bean chilli, a spicy pepper sauce and topped with our creamy bechamel sauce. Finished with a sprinkle of breadcrumbs and Italian cheese for a satisfying crunch.

Pret’s two classic hot wraps and Salmon and Pickles Rice Bowl remain on the dinners menu, ensuring there is a bit of something for everyone.

Rounding out the freshly prepared dinners range are three indulgent milkshakes to make staying in more enjoyable. For pudding enjoy either Pret’s Chocolate shake, 5 Berry shake made with Pret’s famous five berry compote or the Chocolate Chunk Cookie shake, which blends a whole freshly baked chocolate chunk cookie into a creamy after dinner dessert.

Briony Raven, UK Food & Coffee Director, said, “We’re thrilled to be able to offer more customers new (and freshly made) Pret Dinners for their evening takeaways. With many of us having tried to take up cooking in the last lockdown, we decided it’s time to let our customers sit back and relax while Pret handles dinner – you’ve seen enough of your kitchen this year.

“We’ve worked hard to take some of the nations most beloved comfort foods and give them a Pret twist including our new Focaccia Pizzas. Not only have we created new items to add to our dinners menu range but we have expanded the delivery services to be from thirty shops with our delivery partners. Not only that but we have also made sure to include something for everyone including more vegan dishes than ever before.”

Pret continues to adapt and innovate by not only launching a new dinners menu range, extending its delivery trial through delivery partners (Uber Eats, Deliveroo and Just Eat) but they have also launched a brand-new Order Ahead service this week. Customers looking to arrange a takeaway from their local Pret for breakfast or lunch can now visit the Pret website and order directly through the new system to safely pickup their order at their designated shop at the specified time.
