When youre after some vegan grub, Wetherspoons likely isnt the first place you think to go.
For pints, sure. But plant-based meals?
That could be set to change with the pub brands newest addition to the menu.
JD Wetherspoon has teamed up with startup The Meatless Farm – the UK rival to those Impossible and Beyond Meat burgers youve heard about – to create a vegan burger with the taste and texture of meat.
The burgers first landed on the menu early this year. Now, after a successful six-month trial in 40 Wetherspoons pubs, itll be available at all 880 Wetherspoons branches.
You may have sampled The Meatless Farms offering before – they sell their plant-based mince, burgers, and sausages in loads of major supermarkets.
Made of pea, soy and rice protein, chicory root, and carrot fibre, the burger is designed to have that meaty feel that will convert even the staunchest carnivores to give it a go.
While Wetherspoons already does a vegetarian burger, this will be the first ever vegan patty the pub has sold.
Its served with a side of chips and onion rings for around £6 (prices vary depending on which Wetherspoon you head to).
Wetherspoons head of catering, Jameson Robinson, said: We are keen to offer vegetarian and vegan pub-goers an excellent choice of meals to enjoy at Wetherspoon.
The plant-based burger is a great addition to the menu and we are confident that it will prove popular with vegetarians and vegans as well as those who eat meat.
