Review: Giggling Squid

Having visited the Giggling Squid restaurant in Henley for their lunchtime ‘tapas’ and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, I was excited to hear the news that they were opening a new branch in Jericho, where Loch Fyne used to be.

Review: Glut

The burgers came presented on a tray in classic American comfort food diner style, wrapped in paper matching the restaurant’s unique decor. Just looking at these burgers, you can tell they are going to hit the spot when it comes to your junk food craving.

Review: Bella Italia

Bella Italia is one of those ‘Italian’ chains I’ve meant to get to for a while, repping a separate vegan menu with options for every course of your meal. Bizarrely (or perhaps not when you consider it’s next door to the theatre) I’ve actually struggled to get a table.

Review: Vivera

A few weeks back Vivera kindly gifted me a huge box of their products, and it’s taken me a while to get through them all but this review was much requested through Instagram so it was definitely time to write up my thoughts!

Review: Banana Tree

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Veganuary launch party in partnership with Banana Tree, who were donating 25p from every vegan dish sold in January to the charity. Following the event, the restaurant launched their new vegan menu in London, and then rolled it out to the rest of their UK sites.

Review: Frankie & Benny’s

Despite an epic fail on Frankie and Benny’s part the last time I visited in Oxford, we decided to give them a second chance. I’d noticed their menu was flaunting a hugely expanded range of vegan options, which all sounded pretty promising to a vegan junk food fiend, so was hoping that this time our experience would turn out to be better.

Review: Bill’s

I’ve been a Bill’s customer since well before I was vegan, and it’s a good place to have a family gathering as they seem to cater well for a big variety of dietary requirements. I probably haven’t been since last Christmas though, so was happy to be invited along by them to try a couple of their newer vegan dishes on the menu, including their festive specials.

Review: Wildwood

I wanted to start my review by saying I had a really bad experience at Wildwood. However, this should come with the caveat that I visited the Covent Garden branch, and my experience may not be indicative of what the restaurant chain has to offer as a whole.

Review: The Cape of Good Hope

I noticed a while back that The Cape of Good Hope updated their menu and it included a host of vegan options, including a lasagne. My mind had been fixed on that coveted of dishes for some time, and when my sister (who is also vegan) came to visit, I finally found my reason to go and try it out.
