Greggs Menu Prices (Updated for 2017)

Greggs

Greggs menu prices are some of the lowest you will pay in any bakery. This is part of the reason why this chain has grown so big, so quickly. But there is much more to this brand.

You can generally grab a meal deal for change on a fiver. And there are all kinds of hot snacks to enjoy for around £1.

Of course, price has been an issue in the past, most notably with what would become known as “PastyGate”. But as explained below, where we go into a little more detail, this was something that the popular bakery chain had no control over.

To see how far your pound will go in this chain, check our full list of Greggs menu prices below. We try to update these as often as we can. But with the ever-changing UK economy, and all the problems brought about by Brexit and changes in government, there will likely be a lot of fluctuations in the near future.

Still, even if that is the case and these prices are not on the money (pun definitely intended) then they won’t be too far off. If you notice some discrepancies, feel free to get in touch and let us know. We want these to accurate and helpful and will always look to make amendments when that is not the case.

What was Pastygate?

Greggs menu prices took a big hit in 2012 when a change in the VAT law targeted their chain.

For many years, VAT (which is essentially a flat-rate 20% sales tax) was only charged on meals that were eaten in restaurants. However, there was no VAT charged on meals that were bought cold and taken home. So, if you were to buy a Take-n-Bake pizza, such as those served as Papa Murphy’s, then theoretically, you wouldn’t be charged this tax. However, if you were to pull up a chair at a chain like Pizza Hut, you would.

The “Pasty Tax” was quickly amended, only to change again. Now it’s all a confusing mess. But to the customer it means you might pay more, or you might get a product that has been intentionally cooled.

That should have been pretty straightforward. But there was a loophole and Greggs were the biggest exploiters of that loop-hole. The food was still prepared and baked in-store like it would be in a restaurant. But it was eaten out of the store.

To get around this, the government launched what colloquially became known as the “Pasty-Tax”. They basically changed the definition of where that initial tax could apply. Instead of being limited to food served to diners in a restaurant, it turned into an umbrella term that covered all “hot takeaway food”.

As a result, stores selling sandwiches and other cold snacks were exempt. But stores selling hot snacks like Greggs pasties, were not. Outrage ensued, the newspapers got onboard and the government realized that while you might be able to take away people’s money and freedom, you can’t take away their pasties.

What Happens to Uneaten Greggs Food?

Profit is at the top of the agenda for any fast food chain, and Greggs is no exception to that rule. However, they also do things a little differently in order to give their customers a better product and to ensure they help out the communities that support them.

In most fast food chains they produce the food in bulk and then keep it heated during the day. This means that your food is served fast, but rarely fresh. These chains also tend to buy their burgers in frozen. With some being cooked in under 50 seconds!

Speed is also important at Greggs, but they are careful to avoid waste. They stagger their cooking throughout the day, ensuring that there are always fresh and toasty pasties to enjoy.

And at the end of the day, when other chains would throw their food away, Greggs donate it all to charity. They work with homeless charities up and down the United Kingdom, feeding those who can’t afford to feed themselves. In a throwaway society, one where food waste is at the top of the agenda, this is exceptional. It shows that some of the big brands do have a heart. Even if that heart is only there for good PR.
