Price:

Our comments: Serve a full labelled vegetarian/vegan menu designed by Kathryn, a vegan who works at the restaurant. The suitable dishes are:
Spinach, mushroom & chickpea curry served with rice and/or chips and mango chutney.
Bean chilli served with rice and/or chips.
Garlic mushrooms cooked in olive oil or roasted Mediterranean vegetables served on toasted baguettes or jacket potatoes, drizzled with Balsamic vinegar or sweet chilli sauce and served with salad (the dressing is vegan).
The majority of the home-made soups are suitable.
For dessert there is Apple crumble, made with vegan Vitalite spread, and Alpro soya custard.
The breakfast menu will cater for vegans if you ask for mushrooms, fried potatoes, baked beans, grilled tomatoes and toast with vegan spread.
They also stock soya milk and vegan hot chocolate. The toasted teacakes and complementary biscuits served with hot drinks are also suitable.
On Sundays the nut roast is vegan, so you can have a Sunday dinner. Normally the roast potatoes, mashed potatoes and cabbage are not vegan but they will prepare them suitably if given prior notice by the previous Friday. The food is good, the staff friendly and helpful and it is well worth a visit for vegans.

Location:
The Garden Centre is behind the Total garage on Nantgarw Hill.
