The Horse and Plough at Bingham is part of the Castle Rock Brewery chain and they are definitely upping their game when it comes to vegan options in their establishments.
The pubs manager, Dan Brown put on a whole vegan night on Tuesday, I heard about it via a FaceBook groups called the Vale of Belvoir Vegan community. So I went with my vegan friend and had an amazing night, as did the sixteen or so other dinners who came along
For all you omnivores out there you are used to scanning a restaurant menu and taking your time to choose what you want from a wide array of options. It’s a whole different ball game when you are a vegetarian or vegan. There may be nothing on the menu other than chips or a salad. But on Tuesday evening I felt like a normal customer; decisions, decisions!
The pea fritter was really tasty and just the right size for a starter. The satay sauce was delicious and the accompanying salad had a great dressing. I’d say that was a good start!
The other diners also enjoyed their starters which included gazpatcho, beetroot hummus and potato bombas .
Other mains on offer were courgette lasagne, curried courgette chimichanga and Thai pineapple fried rice, served in the pineapple case. Portions were a good size, although the lasagne looked small compared to the others
And to finish; Strawberry Oreo Shake, Ice Cream and Sorbets or Waffles
There were empty plates all round and I think all diners left full and happy. The cost of the 3 course meal including live music by Matty Haynes was £25. It would certainly be less if you didn’t eat all 3 courses, but on this occasions it would have been rude not to!!
