Veganism, an increasingly popular way of life, is a great way to restore a little bit of balance to your nutrition, particularly if you might have overindulged slightly over the past month (we don’t blame you for enjoying one, or two, more mince pies than you’d planned). No need to worry about any sad soggy salad offerings, your tummies will start to rumble when you hear our restaurants’ vegan dishes.
If you’re a breakfast lover, put down that bacon sandwich and scoot over to The Black Penny for a plate called “The Forager”. Start the day with sourdough toast, spinach, roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, black penny beans topped with hummus and parsley and red onion salad.
