LOVEBIRDS could get themselves a free Valentine’s Day meal by getting a date online.


Ten couples can claim a free meal at the Rovers Tye, in Ipswich Road, Colchester, by asking out their date using the pub’s Facebook site.

Fans of the Flaming Grill, the pub’s restaurant, will ask ‘Grill you be mine’ on the Facebook page and if the offer is accepted, ten lucky couples will eat for free.

Stephen Playle, general manager at the Rovers Tye, said: “It’s not easy to pluck up the courage to ask the object of your affection on a date, so we thought we’d lend a hand and play Cupid in an innovative way.”
