How much is a pack of 4 sausage rolls from Greggs?
M&S and New Look have outlet stores in Perry Barr, but did you know that Greggs also has one two miles away? Well, I didn’t until I found it on my hidden gem bible – Tik Tok. A user had documented deals they’d found in the bakery outlet so ordinarily, I had to find out if there was one in Birmingham,
- My search found me heading to Villa road in Lozells,
- As of last September, there are only 27 of their outlet stores in the UK so it’s not surprising that I had to travel to locate one.
- The signage of these surplus stores host a bright red background behind the well known white Greggs font as opposed to the blue we all know it to be.
Read more I tried kebab and chips for £3 at the ‘Best of British’ chippy in Birmingham and I was surprised Getting to the location was relatively easy as I opted for a taxi, at least it was until the last three minutes when I was stuck in traffic on a very slim road. Greggs Outlet store off Villa Road in Lozells (Image: Birmingham Live) Outside of the Greggs outlet in Lozells (Image: Birmingham Live) Stock was limited when I arrived as I definitely made the mistake of going after lunchtime but I was expecting a bigger store than I was met with. It was much smaller than my local Greggs stores.
The range of stock felt odd as it appeared that they either had surplus of an item or none of it left at all- no in between. I still managed to find some of my usual Greggs buys though. Life through a new lens. We are Curiously. Follow us on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter My favourite deal was getting eight sausage rolls for £2.
They came in packs of four that would set you back £1.55 but the lady behind the till convinced me to spend an extra 45p for four more. Greggs Outlet store off Villa Road in Lozells (Image: Birmingham Live) At an ordinary Greggs, the four-pack would cost you £3 and there’s no additional discount for the amount of packs you buy, so trying this at one of them would have you paying £6.
Another great deal I found was a box of two Belgian buns for 55p! One of these alone costs 90p in the bakery chain’s normal stores so I was elated at this price tag. These were the first items that showed me why they were discounted as one was missing the sweet cherry on top, but luckily for me, I don’t like those anyway.
If you’re wondering why the Greggs bakery outlet can offer food at such a reduced price, it’s because of a few reasons. A sign inside explained the function of the outlets is to distribute products that had an incorrect surplus made, products that were slightly misshapen and for unsold products from local stores, Greggs Outlet store off Villa Road in Lozells (Image: Birmingham Live) To shop at the Greggs outlet, there are no shopping restrictions so there was no need for me to sign up to anything or take out another store card. I just turned up and walked right in.
The outlet doesn’t just sell food as it had a range of hot beverages on the menu and a fridge with a section dedicated to drinks. These didn’t seem to have discounted prices though which didn’t surprise me as I’d entered with the preconception that there was going to be a focus on the perishable products from elsewhere.
Greggs outlet stores boost the bakeries already established sustainability credibility as users of the Too Good To Go app will already know. However shopping at these stores allow for a more tailored deal than the randomised bag you’re given shopping on there.
Despite the great deals I found, I don’t think I’ll be rushing back there again unless I’m in the area as the location isn’t a quick and easy trip for me. The Belgian buns offer was fantastic as I’ve never seen a treat so cheap but I’d spend the extra pennies to get them locally than travelling far out for them as I only ever buy them as a treat.

Greggs | FAQs View the frequently asked questions below Click + Collect & Delivery What are your opening times? Opening times for all Greggs shops can be found on our, Just enter your location into the search bar to find opening times, contact details and available facilities.
- What happens to your leftover food? We’ve been donating unsold food for a long time.
- Originally our bakeries would team up with large charities who would help distribute it to smaller organisations.
- This process remains in place, though we’ve also worked hard to increase the amount of unsold food donated by our shops and we currently support a network of 1,077 local good causes.
In 2022, we redistributed 1,800 tonnes of unsold food through our Outlet shops. A share of the profits from the outlets, totalling £450,000, was then donated back into the communities we serve. We’re no longer taking new applications for end-of-day food donation partners, but we continue to identify regions where our shops could support a local charitable collection.
- To find out more or nominate an organisation visit:,
- Why do you have different prices regionally? It is very common for retailers to have regional prices.
- This is because the costs of running a business can vary across different parts of the country and in certain locations, for example rent costs.
- We always keep our prices as low as possible for our customers.
Why do I pay more to eat in? We have to charge VAT if you wish to ‘eat in’ which we then pass over to HMRC. We also charge a little extra in our café shops as we provide additional services. We’ll always let you know by showing both the eat in and takeaway prices on our shelf tickets.
- Where can I see your nutritional and allergen information? While every effort is made to prevent cross contamination happening in our products, due to the way that we make, bake and deliver our food we can’t guarantee that any cross contamination hasn’t occurred.
- To find out more information on this, you can read our Nutritional and Allergen information,
We also have an advice notice in every shop to explain this. At Greggs we’re proud to use fresh produce and although every care has been taken to remove small pieces of fruit stone, egg shell, bone and nut shell sometimes a small amount may remain in our products.
- As some recipes vary by region, our nutritional information can differ from shop to shop.
- This means that the nutritional information in our shop does not include all products.
- To get nutritional and allergen information for a specific product, please contact our,
- We’re always looking at ways that we can broaden our range, but at the moment we don’t have a Halal menu.
Like many brands in the food industry, we use a range of suppliers, some of whom provide chicken that is compliant with the HFA. However, we can’t label this as Halal because we don’t provide separation in either our shops or our bakeries. We take great care to ensure that the animal products used in our recipes are produced in a way that avoids the abuse or exploitation of animals.
- Animal welfare is a top business priority at Greggs and to this end, we measure our progress against the Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare (BBFAW).
- We’re proud to be one of the few businesses in our industry to have maintained a Tier 2 with them for the fourth year running and work hard to drive continuous improvement throughout our supply chain.
Do you use free range eggs? Whether we buy them as whole eggs or as a liquid, 100% of the eggs we use come from free-range hens. This means hens that spend their lives free from close confinement such as cages and have more freedom to move around. Is your mayo pasteurised? All of our mayonnaise is pasteurised and suitable for pregnant women.
We’d always recommend you check with your doctor to ensure they’re comfortable for you to eat this. When we do, we only ever use 100% sustainable palm oil ingredients in our food and drinks and we are proud members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). What does gluten free mean at Greggs? Greggs gluten free products are manufactured using recipes that are free from gluten and the manufacturing sites have strict gluten controls and testing regimes in place.
Our shop teams have undergone gluten training, and there are gluten controls and a testing regime in place to manage cross contamination with gluten within our shops. Are your sandwiches / products freshly prepared? Our daily-fresh sandwiches are made in our own shops, using bread baked that day and our savouries are baked fresh in the shop ovens throughout the day.
- We sell savouries that are freshly baked in our shop ovens, then put on the shelf to cool.
- We don’t keep them in a heated environment, use heat retaining packaging, or market them as hot because of this.
- As bakers, we believe that baking our savouries fresh each day gives customers the best quality product.
If the sausage rolls and bakes were kept hot after they had been baked, then they would be subject to VAT and the customer would have to be charged a higher price, in the same way that we charge VAT on our hot sandwiches which are kept in a heated cabinet and are subject to VAT.

What is the most expensive sausage UK?
A butcher has created what he claims is the world’s most expensive sausage. Kevin Turner, from Aldershot, Hampshire, created the £37 sausage, which includes Mangalitsa pork, truffles, Stilton cheese, powdered cep mushrooms and vintage 1947 port, to mark British Sausage Week.
- Speaking of the sausage, which would cost £700 per kilo, he said: “The average British sausage will cost you 35 pence each.
- These will be more than 100 times more expensive at £37 per sausage.
- The single bottle of port is £450, the Stilton was £250, the pork works out at £25 per kilo, the truffles at £70 and the cep mushrooms at about £50.” He described it as a “posh banger” which might appeal to “those sausage connoisseurs with a more discerning taste”.
British Sausage Week, now in its 18th year, runs from 2-8 November and celebrates the taste, quality and diversity of British sausages.
Is Greggs the same price everywhere?
Ah, Greggs – the bakery chain popular for its tasty sausage rolls, steak bakes and sticky buns. But it appears Greggs’ pricing isn’t quite so consistent as its products. Prices fluctuate depending on which Manchester shop you head to. If you stop off at the Manchester Victoria Station branch you’ll pay up to 20 per cent MORE for your pastry treat than if you walked five minutes down the road to the Manchester Arndale branch. So what’s behind the price discrepancy? Greggs say fluctuations in prices depend on the location of certain stores, particularly around travel hubs – like in the case of Victoria. A spokeswoman for Greggs said: “We always keep our prices as low as possible for our customers. That means higher prices at Greggs branches at petrol stations and service stations too. Interestingly, however, the Greggs store just outside the entrance to Piccadilly Train Station in Manchester has the cheaper pricing structure. It’s also worth remembering that if you choose a Greggs cafe with a seating area in Manchester (like at Piccadilly Gardens, the Arndale and on Spinningfields ) and eat inside, you will also pay an added premium – up to 20 per cent on the takeaway price.
Is Greggs sausage roll healthy?
What To Order At Greggs, According To A Nutritionist Photography @GREGGS_OFFICIAL Verdict : Pretty delicious, but unfortunately not very nutritious. I wouldn’t recommend this as a breakfast staple because bacon is a processed meat. The evidence is pretty solid that higher consumption of processed meat is associated with an increased risk of cancer. Healthy Alternative ? The Omelette Breakfast Roll. Eggs are highly nutritious and packed with vitamins and antioxidants. They’re also the perfect source of protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. Eggs used to get a bad rap with concerns over cholesterol content, but research has shown this isn’t the case. Verdict : Being vegan doesn’t mean it’s healthy. This is a huge misconception, as many vegan meat substitutes are often highly processed, higher in salt and contain added sugars and additives. This vegan sausage roll is high in saturated fats (nearly 9g), contributing 44% of your recommended daily intake. Healthy Alternativ e? Ambitious perhaps but, if you’re looking for a nutritious snack, the Fruit Medley would be a much better alternative. Fruit is a great source of vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants, which are especially needed at this time of year to defend against cold and flu germs. Verdict This roll is packed with protein (22g) and low in saturated fats (<1g) – a win-win. Tuna is a great source of protein and contains many vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D, which is necessary for optimal immunity and bone health. Healthy Alternative ? You could try making your own tuna mayo sandwich at home, using a wholemeal bread roll and adding an extra portion of veg, such as sliced tomatoes. These two simple changes will make your roll more nutritious and help to balance blood sugars, keeping energy levels steady and cravings at bay. Verdict If you're worried about your saturated fat intake, this tomato soup would be a healthier alternative to the pastry bakes and processed meats. However, this soup has no halo – it's low in protein (6g), high in salt (nearly 2g) and super high in sugar (21g). That's nearly as much sugar as you'd find in a bar of Dairy Milk. Healthy Alternative ? To make it healthier, add a source of protein such as a chicken breast, or swap it for the Spicy Chicken and Red Pepper Soup. Verdict Due to the puff pastry and beef, this bake is incredibly high in saturated fats (13g – which is 65% of your daily recommended intake). Although beef can be high in saturated fat, it can still be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet. It's also a good source of protein that helps muscle growth, and contains iron, which can reduce fatigue. Healthy Alternative ? The Roast Chicken Salad Roll would be a far healthier alternative – chicken is a better meat option when it comes to cardiovascular health. Verdict This may be a Greggs classic, but nutritionally it's very poor. It's high in saturated fat (12g or 60% of your recommended daily intake). Saturated fat is a ‘bad' fat, connected to high blood pressure, high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. In contrast, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are 'good' fats that support health and lower disease risk. Foods that contain these good fats include olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds and oily fish. Healthy Alternative ? Opt for the Tuna Mayo sandwich, which contains barely any saturated fats – the fibre in the brown bread will keep you fuller for longer too. Verdict I have a couple of concerns here. One is the high level of salt: this baguette contains 3g, which is over half of your recommended daily intake. The other is the saturated fat content, which comes in at nearly 8g. These are significant contributors to rising blood pressure, which increases the risk of developing heart and circulatory diseases. Sausages also fall under the umbrella of highly processed meat – I'd recommend reducing your intake of all processed meats to once every couple of weeks. Healthy Alternative ? The Omelette Breakfast Baguette – ditch the sausage. Verdict This is one of the healthier options on the Greggs menu, although it's not perfect as it's pretty low in both protein and fibre. White pasta is a refined carb, meaning it's been stripped of many nutrients (including fibre) during processing. When eaten, the body breaks it down into glucose and is rapidly absorbed, causing a spike in blood sugar. Healthy Alternative ? In an ideal world, this would contain more protein, so pair with a chicken breast if you can – you can buy these pre-cooked in most supermarkets. You can even consider making your own pasta salad at home – use wholewheat pasta for maximum health points. Verdict The classic ham and cheese toastie may be comforting, but it doesn't bring much on the nutrition front. It's high in protein (26g per serving) which will keep you full, but it's downfall is the high saturated fat content (10g) and high salt content (2.5g). Healthy Alternative ? The Honey Roast Ham Salad Baguette is a better option – it contains just 1g of saturated fat, with the tomato and cucumber providing additional nutrients. Verdict Hash browns are made with shredded potatoes, oil and salt, which provide minimal nutritional value. They're considered a high glycaemic index food and are low in protein, meaning they're rapidly digested, causing havoc with your blood sugar, which in turn can affect mood. The vegetable oils used to fry hash browns are high in omega-6 fats, which oxidise when heated. In this form, they become more dangerous to body tissues, increasing inflammation. Healthy Alternative ? If you're craving carbs, go for Greggs's Simply Creamy Porridge instead. This is made with complex carbs and is a good source of fibre, which will aid digestion and prevent constipation. Verdict This sandwich contains 3g of salt – 50% of your daily intake. The sugar content is also high at 16g and it contains 80g of carbs. Carbs aren't the devil as they're an essential macronutrient that play a primary role in supplying our bodies with fuel. We just need to be mindful of the types of carbs we eat, and this baguette is classed as simple carbs because it's made with white, refined flour. Healthy Alternative ? Removing the top layer of bread would make a big improvement on the carb front. I'd also recommend the Tandoori Chicken Baguette, as it has 10g less of sugar (that's over two teaspoons less) as well as fewer carbs and less saturated fat.

Are Greggs sausage rolls any good?
£1.20 – £1.45 per roll
8 Greggs’ own fresh sausage roll are not the cheapest The original Greggs sausage roll fresh from the oven is hard to beat. There’s just enough flaky pastry surrounding the sausage which has the perfect texture – not too hard and not too soft. The meat filling also combines the best blend of seasoning for a tasty flavour that’s neither bland nor overpowering.
I think it’s fair to say that like many other food fans, the Greggs’ own sausage roll will always hold a place in my heart – it’s what the brand is best at. A single sausage roll will set you back around £1.20 but prices can vary by location. In some parts of London you’ll have to fork out as much as £1.45.
Greggs sets the standard when it comes to taste – the original is best. But I had to mark the original down on value as several supermarkets offer far cheaper options.
Taste: 9/10 Value: 5/10 Sausage to pastry ratio: 8/10 Total score: 22/30

In 2013, Greggs started to transition out of the bakery market, instead targeting the ‘food on the go’ market that was accounting for 80% of its business. Having stores open earlier and close later meant it could target those going to and from work, and the company expanded its breakfast menu to suit consumers’ changing food habits.

Is Greggs sausage rolls pork?
Sausage roll secrets –
- The main attraction at any Greggs is the iconic sausage rolls.
- “There are not many places in Britain you can get a lunch for £1 that is as tasty and satisfying as a sausage roll and that is the reason they sell five every single second,” says consumer journalist Harry Wallop in Channel 5 documentary Inside Greggs: Britain’s Best Bakery.
- But how do they make them taste so good while keeping the cost down?
- Chef Ed Warren, who has spent years helping major supermarkets develop their own brand pastry, knows how Greggs put theirs together.
- All sausage rolls are filled with a mixture of fat, rusk and 22% pork mince, which is the lowest proportion going.
“As far as sausage rolls go, I believe that is the lowest out there,” says Ed. “But they have a price point they have to work to and that’s what it has to sell for.” The low meat content helps to reduce costs but doesn’t taste great, so Greggs has developed a special blend of spices to boost the flavour.
Texture is everything with the pastry, which consists of layers of dough and fat and has to meet very specific requirements. “You want it to be flaky, but not too flaky. You don’t want people to have a lap full of greasy pastry,” says Ed. “There is 96, not 95, not 97, 96 layers. You can have more layers but more layers mean you have to add more fat.
More fat means a higher price point.” Once filling and pastry come together, Greggs use every trick they can find to keep production overheads low. Any excess pastry is trimmed off the rolls and goes back into the production cycle to keep those costs down – and they don’t use egg for the gloss.
Are Greggs sausage rolls hot?
Top Trending Stories Today – Greggs answer read: “We sell savouries which are freshly baked in our shop ovens then put on the shelf to cool. We don’t keep our savouries in a heated environment, or use heat retaining packaging, or market them as hot, as they are simply freshly baked throughout the day then left to cool.
As bakers we believe that baking our savouries fresh each day gives customers the best quality savoury. If the sausage rolls and pasties were kept hot after they had been baked, then they would be subject to VAT and the customer would have to be charged a higher price, in the same way that we charge VAT on our hot sandwiches which are kept in a heated cabinet and are subject to VAT.” Many Greggs fans were floored to learn this, with one person saying: “I honestly never knew that.
It explains a lot!!” while another said they were “shook” by the revelation. Speaking on how Greggs should serve their products, one person said: “Molten hot is the only way. Nothing like a searing lava of beans and sausage to warm your cockles.” While another said: “I wish they would.

Do Greggs charge for bags?

Angry punters have condemned the change — pointing out that they are of poor quality and the government levy applies only to plastic ones, which the bakery chain has phased out. 3 Greggs sparked fury after it decide to start charging customers 5p for paper bags Customer Paul Brooks said: “The bags are cheap rubbish and no one should be charging for paper bags !” And Scott Winchester tweeted: “I know it’s only 5p but imagine how many people have been charged.
In a nutshell, you’re taking the proverbial.” Greggs said the profits go to its Greggs Foundation charity, which supports good causes in local communities. Another customer, Adam Grimes, 28, of Great Barford, Beds, said: “It’s great that they donate the charge to good causes but it would be nice if customers had the choice over whether to pay.

How many sausage rolls Greggs sell?
Five facts about sausage rolls Sticking with Greggs, the company sells around two million sausage rolls – it’s most popular product – every week.
How much is a Greggs bag?
Here’s what she had to say: – After the great success from my first ever Too Good To Go ‘magic bag’ from Toby Carvery – I got myself back on the app in search of another bag of goodies. Was it too good to be true or a stroke of luck for my first go? We would soon find out. Greggs’ ‘magic bag’ which cost just £2.95 (Image: Dayna Farrington) After an hour or so of browsing and trying to find some good deals from big named brands, I happened across two bags that spiked my interest. Greggs and Starbucks. Both were from stores around a 15 minute drive from my house at a service station in Worcestershire.
There were two left of each bag – so a decision had to be made quickly. I must admit, I was more tempted by the thought of pastries and sweet treats aplenty from Greggs. Plus it was the cheaper option of £2.95. So that Monday lunchtime I nabbed one – ready to be collected between 5.15pm and 5.30pm that evening.
And spent the rest of the daydreaming of what delights I would be collecting. The time came and I packed myself off into my car to make the quick drive and arrived at the Greggs just ahead of my collection time. There was no one to be seen – but I could spy five or six white bags behind the counter.
After a few minutes, an orderly queue formed behind me as others came to the store in anticipation for their magic bags. I was greeted by a member of staff, who checked the app and code I had been sent – and got me my white bag with the Greggs logo on the side. I quickly got back into my car and took a sneak peek in the bag, which I must admit was heavy – and saw two white packets, four doughnuts, and two baguettes.
This looks good I thought, as I drove off home. A sausage roll from the ‘magic bag’ that was warmed up in the microwave (Image: Dayna Farrington) I opened the bag up on our dining room table at home to find a mixture of sweet and savoury items – a sausage roll, a sticky toffee muffin, four jam doughnuts, a ham salad baguette, and a roast chicken mayonnaise salad baguette.
All for £2.95! A sausage roll alone costs you £1.30 to take out now, while a baguette can cost between £2.85 and £3.05. While a four doughnuts in a pack is £2.10. I was gobsmacked once more. It could fill us both up for our evening meal – as well as a doughnut each for the children too! First up was the sausage roll.
Which we will admit, we warmed up briefly in the microwave. But then again, it wouldn’t be Greggs if it was piping hot now, would it? But this was still as delicious as when you pick them up fresh from the counter. The pastry was still nice and flaky, while the sausage inside was succulent. We got two baguettes included in the ‘magic bag’ including roast chicken mayonnaise and honey roast ham salad (Image: Dayna Farrington) Both were nearly, if not more, than the cost of the entire magic bag. Incredible right? They also both tasted delicious.
And tasted really fresh. Both had been freshly made that day with clear allergen and ingredients lists, so need to worry if you have any food allergies. And the packaging was all sealed. The roast chicken was tasty and the mayonnaise was creamy, while the salad in both was crunchy. There were nice big slices of ham in the other baguette too.
I don’t often order a baguette from Greggs, so was surprised at how much filling was in both. Top marks all round from us. Moving swiftly onto the sweet treats. First up was the sticky toffee muffins – one of my personal favourites to pick up as a treat from Greggs, so I was over the moon to find it in the bag. We also got a sticky toffee muffin (Image: Dayna Farrington) It was soft, spongey, and gooey. The toffee and caramel flavours were beautifully delicious. It was the best by far out of the bag. It could satisfy any sweet tooth. And to satisfy the sweet tooth even further, step forward a bag of four jam doughnuts.
- Normally £2.10 for a pack of four – it was close to the cost of the whole bag.
- While it wasn’t awful, it wasn’t the best part of the bag at all.
- The sugar had really soaked into the doughnut, making it very soggy and the taste wasn’t as sweet.
- But the doughnut itself was still very edible and the dough still felt fresh.
The jam centre made up for the soggy outer. And it didn’t stop us demolishing all four in the house. I don’t think the kids batted an eyelid either. We were delighted with the contents of our Greggs magic bag. The amount of food we received was amazing, and the price was really just something else. A four-pack of doughnuts was also included in the ‘magic bag’ (Image: Dayna Farrington) You really can’t deny the appeal of this app at all. It is a great idea and makes a lot of sense. And with how quickly they sell out – people obviously agree. The food is better given out at a discounted price than going straight in the bin.
