This month, pub-goers across Manchester will be able to grab themselves a free carvery if they finish a new dessert challenge. To celebrate carvery season, Greene King have launched a limited-edition Carvery Sundae - a sweet ice dessert served with hot gravy.

The limited-edition dessert, which is sure to divide dessert lovers, will be available only on Sunday, 26 November and Sunday, 3 December at 40 participating sites across the UK. It will be available here in Manchester, with five pubs getting involved in the food challenge.

For the base, those dining at selected Greene King pubs will be able to choose between the brand’s ‘ultimate ice cream sundae’, which consists of two scoops vanilla and chocolate ice cream, Twix, Maltesers and Smarties, or the Choctastic Sundae - one scoop vanilla and chocolate ice cream, lava cookie, Twix, Maltesers and Smarties. Of course it wouldn't be a challenge with a twist, so naturally the pub chain have stipulated that it must be consumed with the brand's own gravy drizzled on top.

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.”

Here in Greater Manchester, a number of pubs are getting involved in the action. Those involved include: The Barlow Croft in East Didsbury, Beach in Littleborough, Bee Hive in Bolton, Mottram Wood in Hyde, and Red Robin in Wigan. Not far from Manchester, the Star in Burnley, Plough Inn Stoke on Trent, Heath Farm in Congleton, and Waggon and Horses in Handforth are also taking part.

As well as a range of ice cream and other desserts, customers at Greene King Pub & Carvery can tuck into a selection of three 14-hour slow cooked glazed meats, available every day.

Customers will need to ask for a topping of gravy on their sundae when ordering, and anyone who finishes the Carvery Sundae will get their next carvery meal for free. The limited-edition Carvery Sundae is available Sunday, 26 November and Sunday, 3 December.
