Pret A Manger, Starbucks and Costa Coffee release festive menus each year. With the return of some classics as well as some new additions to their menus, the popular coffee chains will stay open throughout England’s lockdown although it is thought that they will only be available to food and drinks to go.
Pret’s menu this year will include its first ever Christmas hot food range including Pigs in Blankets served in a pot, or in a hot crusty roll with a layer of caramelised onion chutney.
Veggie Pret will also be launching two exclusive new vegan recipes, the Vegan Christmas Lunch Baguette and the Vegan Christmas Lunch Hot Roll.
Their entire menu will also be available for delivery so customers can enjoy the food from the comfort of their own home.
For those after sweet treats, the Christmas Tiffin and Melvin, Pret’s Melting Gingerbread Snowman, will return alongside their Mince Pie which will be an exclusively vegan product this year, available for 99p with any takeaway hot drink.

The indulgent hot chocolate includes a biscuit syrup, topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of dark chocolate curls.
Briony Raven, UK Food & Coffee Director at Pret said: “As it continues to be a challenging year, we’re more excited than ever to launch our Christmas menu, which we hope will bring joy to our customers.
“Not only are we bringing back our much loved iconic items, like our Christmas Lunch and Christmas Tiffin, but we’ve worked hard to add some extra indulgence to spread joy in a way that only Pret can, with pigs in blankets, three new vegan items and a S’mores hot chocolate, topped with Melvin, our marshmallow Christmas mascot.
