    Oh lordy, not this again.

    it is NOT TRUE!!!!

    Chuck "weatherspoons" in the search engine on here and you will find dozens of threads about this as the rumour mill brings it up again and again.

    But it does not happen.

    Check the nutrition info on weatherspoons own website and plug it into the syns calculator and it will come up as free.

    Or search for Jacket Potato from JD Weatherspoon on the SW website - I don't think its on its own anywhere on the database, but you will find that a rump steak, jacket potato and salad meal comes up as free (fat removed, no butter, no dressing)

    So eat. Enjoy.

    And tell the facebook lot to get back in their box and stop spreading rumours!

    gosh is this load of rubbish still doing the rounds.

    it would be one very unedible potato if it was deep fried, for one if it didnt explode before it hit your plate, it would most definately crack a tooth or two.

If i was going to wetherspoons i would always have.. Jacket potato with 5 bean chilli.. cos its sooooo nice. Duno the syns for the 5 bean though, but its quorn and various beans. And just ask for the salad to be served with no dressing xx

    can anyone help....i am heading to Scotland on Thursday for a week...and i was flicking thru the SW Food directory....thinking about where and what i might eat...
    i was thinking...sure i could have steak and jacket potato....(free on EE)...but when i checked the wetherspoons section..i was shocked to see this is 49.5 syns...:eek:

    how could that be....even with the steak fried...how could it be so high?

    any idea folks?

    Could it be the fat on the steak? Mushrooms are cooked in butter.. Salad dressing is quite creamy.. I'd be really interested in knowing
