Competition: WIN dinner and drinks at Common

Polly Checkland Harding

Enter our competition to win dinner and drinks from Common’s revamped – and rather fabulous – menu.

Common’s recent revamp from shabby, well-loved boozer to Scandi-chic ‘social, eatery and coffee spot’ might be controversial – but as far as we’re concerned, one thing is certain. The food there is top-notch; think beautifully prepared small plates like cauliflower cheese croquettes, Korean fried tofu with kimchi slaw and salt and pepper squid with lime aioli, alongside satisfying big plates and Common’s speciality burgers. Everything feels fresh, healthy (saving the burgers), and the menu evolves quickly enough that it’s impossible to get bored.

We’ve teamed up with Common to offer dinner for two, for free

As with most things, though, we don’t just want you to take our word for it: so, in the spirit of ‘show not tell’ we’ve teamed up with Common to offer dinner for two, for free. That’s two small plates, two large plates and two sides total – with one drink each thrown in for good measure. To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is enter your details in the form below. The competition closes at 10am on Friday 14 August – good luck!
