Greggs (rolling)

eggs

#1

they’re trialling delivery now http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/business/business-news/greggs-launches-delivery-service-newcastle-12035693

anyone had any of the new additions (chicken katsu pasty, but it’s in bread instead of pastry)?


#2

I’ve had it. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it just doesn’t work. The filling’s nice but the casing’s too crunchy so it falls apart, filling goes everywhere and the texture’s just not very pleasant


#3

Got a scotch pie at a Greggs in Livingstone at the weekend. Was overdone and the crust was burnt. A rare disappointing greggs experience :pensive:


#4

Been craving Greggs doughnuts recently, wish there were more in London.


#5

coming soon to the city https://greggs.co.uk/delivery


#6

Had a cappucino and a jam doughnut at Toddington services a couple of weeks back.

First time I’ve been to one for ages.

Really fancy a sausage roll now.

Really annoying that they don’t do the corned beef pasty in any London greggs


#10

LOVE a corned beef pasty. Not seen those in a Greggs for ages.

Used to have a sausage roll and corned beef pasty from the Wright’s (the local Stokie version of Greggs) around the corner from uni for lunch every day I was in.

(not being able to eat greggs is probably the saddest thing about my existence)


#12

you can definitely still get them in certain places - they just stare blankly when I ask about them in London though :frowning:


#13

does everyone in newcastle work for greggs in some capacity?


#14

not really, but theres one on every highstreet, no matter how large. the bigger ones have one at each end. and there’s one on every street in town.


#15

you work for Greggs, don’t you.


#16

have never worked at greggs, nor have any of my family members. some of my friends have done.

something notable is that a mate of my dad’s worked there for years and still gets staff discount, which is of great benefit to him.

also worth noting is that my brother has a colleague whose ‘thing’ is that he steals something from greggs every single day.


#18

my granddad worked for sainsburys for like 30 years and when he retired they never cancelled his staff discount. he lives in Spain now, but he’s really proud of his sainsbury’s staff discount card, which is preserved in a little box in a drawer. i’ve seen him get it out and show family members at dinners before, which is great.


#19

According to their store finder, I have 6 branches of Greggs within 700m of my office


#20

Greggs has only recently come to Belfast. it’s all very exciting. it used to be a highlight of all my trips across the water. the steak and cheese roll is the best one.

have you been to the one on the motorway
