‘Goodbye money, hello tummy!’ Dinners go wild as Wetherspoon’s becomes the latest restaurant to serve halloumi fries – for just £3
- JD Wetherspoon is trialling the salty sticks at 30 pubs out of its 900 outlets
- Customers are itching to try the new treats, which cost £3.10 as a side dish
- They are served with sweet chilli sauce, rocket and contain 517 calories
Say ‘halloumi fries’ to a cheese fan and their mouth will water on the spot – which is why diners have been whipped into a frenzy by pub chain Wetherspoon launching its own version.
The chain is testing the nation’s love of halloumi by adding the £3.10 deep-fried sticks of salty cheese to menus at just 30 out of its 900 drinking holes.
But the trial has already sent fans into meltdown, with customers itching to try the treats on social media – especially as they’re 60p cheaper than the halloumi fries at Nando’s.
Wetherspoons is selling deep-fried halloumi sticks served with sweet chilli sauce and rocket (not with pomegranate seeds and yoghurt, as pictured here)
Those who have tried them have expressed their love for the gooey cheesy sticks online.
The fries are served with a sweet chilli sauce, and a side salad of rocket, according to Joyscribe.com.

There is hope for those who are unable to get their hands on the new menu addition because of where they live.
A spokesman told FEMAIL: ‘If a success they might be rolled out to all pubs nationwide.
Halloumi fans were whipped into a frenzy on social media by the launch and tweeted about how excited they were to try them. They are only available at 30 selected Wetherspoon pubs
‘Wetherspoon always keen to offer its customers as wide a choice of food as possible, so why not halloumi fries?’
A plate of the fries contains 517 calories, so they’re not the healthiest side to order from a Wetherspoon menu.
However it hasn’t stopped one halloumi lover from ordering two plates of the cheesy treats, they revealed on social media.
Dozens of cheese fans have taken to Twitter to express their excitement at the new addition.
The Wetherspoons menu item will rival Portugese-style restaurant chain Nando’s, which also launched halloumi fries as a starter for £3.70 in February.
It comes a couple of months after Aldi launched its own version of halloumi fries that you can cook at home for £1.99 a bag.
The supermarket said that ‘foodie dreams are about to come true’ when it announced the launch before admitting inspiration had come from a well-known chain restaurant.
