Our comments: Harvester restaurants have labelled vegan options. The suitable mains are aubergine & red lentil tagine (giant couscous cooked with apricots, raisins, coriander & red pepper, topped with a Moroccan-inspired spiced stew, with flat bread & houmous), penne arrabiata (with black olives & grilled kapia pepper) and stuffed red pepper (stuffed with sweet potato, black bean & quinoa chilli, with golden rice & beans and sweet potato fries). The vegan sides are fries, sage & onion seasoned fries, sweet potato fries, golden rice & beans. For dessert you can have the coconut & black cherry rice pudding. The breakfast menu is served until 11.30am and the Hipster breakfast is labelled vegan. This consists of two hash browns, two vegan sausages, grilled tomato, flat mushroom, spinach, baked beans, avocado & a roasted red pepper dip.

Our comments: They state on their website that on request they can cater for vegans. If diners inform them of their requirements, when booking a meal, they can provide a vegan menu. They offer really nice traditional pub food in large portions and the staff are very helpful. The vegan menu follows but as everything is cooked from fresh visitors can suggest something that is not on the menu.
Starters: Pan fried garlic mushrooms; served on a bed of salad, bruschetta; diced tomatoes & red onions in a herb & garlic oil, served on toasted bread thins, homemade rich tomato soup; served with warm crusty bread.
Mains: Provençal pasta; rich tomato & herb sauce served on a bed of pasta, braised mushrooms & leeks; in white wine & garlic, served with fragrant rice & hand cut chips, mushroom & black pepper potato pie; mushrooms & pepper corns in vegan gravy, topped with sliced potato & oven baked, served with seasonal vegetables.
Desserts: Sorbet, poached pear.
The Little Crown comes highly recommended by vegans who have had meals here.

Our comments: The Unicorn is a lovely, welcoming pub. They suggest looking at their menu to see if anything looks it can be adapted to meet vegan needs. Previous visitors have had suitable versions of the vegetarian bean burger and the chef’s mushroom jalfrezi. The portions are generous.
