Some people may be able to cope with some strange food combinations, and one pub chain is offering patrons a free carvery if they manage to eat an unusual concoction.

Customers are challenged to eat a  limited-edition Carvery Sundae at Greene King which combines the sweet with the savoury.

It consists of either the brand’s ‘ultimate ice cream sundae’ (2 x scoops vanilla & chocolate ice cream, Twix, Maltesers and Smarties) or the Choctastic Sundae (1 x scoop vanilla & chocolate ice cream, lava cookie, Twix, Maltesers and Smarties).

The twist is that it comes with a ladle of gravy drizzled on top.

Customers will need to ask for a topping of gravy on their sundae when ordering, and anyone who finishes the dish will get their next carvery meal for free.

When will this offer be on at Greene King pubs?

The Carvery Sundae will be available only on Sunday, November 25 & Sunday, December 3 at 40 participating sites across the UK. 

A list of participating Greene King sites can be found on their website here.

Sophie Howells, Marketing Manager for Greene King Pub & Carvery said: “The Carvery Sundae is the perfect balance of sweet and savoury, featuring two types of ice cream, and a wide range of toppings.

"The hot gravy might not be for everyone, but it certainly makes for a unique experience! Best of all, if you finish it, you get your next carvery on us!” 

“Once you’ve polished off your Carvery Sundae, a team member will give you a receipt to redeem a carvery meal the next time you’re in pub.” 

Greene King often offers discounts on drinks related to specific events, such as the Rugby World Cup, but this particular challenge appears to be a different flavour to their usual deals.
