They cook fresh and in season. Some examples of food they would cook for vegans are starters of asparagus & houmous or broccoli & almonds, mains of char grilled pepper, aubergine & courgette with cheese free pesto or vegetable stir fry with sesame oil & fenugreek rice and desserts of strawberry, mango & blood orange or trio of melon with a mint & elderflower syrup. For overnight guests they can arrange to have soya or almond milk in stock and provide a breakfast of tomatoes, mushrooms, beans & sautéed potatoes, all cooked in oil with pitta bread. They get very few vegan customers, so the chef would work off the cuff, on the day to produce dishes.

There is always a labelled vegan cake available, this changes seasonally. The soups, when available are usually suitable and there are salad options, some labelled as vegan. The salads are interesting and substantial. Soya milk is available for drinks. Any of the frappes that are not white chocolate can be made vegan. The hot chocolate is suitable but not the powder they sprinkle on top but if you order a soya milk hot chocolate they don’t normally put it on anyway. The spiced chai is not vegan.
