Review: Plant Kitchen at M&S

This post is a little different and one which I hope people all over the UK will be keen to read! In January, M and S launched Plant Kitchen, its new vegan range numbering 50+ ready meals, ingredients, and grab and go options. M and S shared a generous handful of their flagship options with me to try out at home and share my verdict.

Review: Pizza Hut

All in all, we really had no complaints about our meal. If you liked Pizza Hut before going vegan, you’ll certainly like it now. And if you didn’t really like Pizza Hut before going vegan (I probably fall into this camp) you might find yourself pleasantly surprised.

Review: Leon

It seems almost impossible that I haven’t reviewed Leon yet, as it’s been a staple grab and go lunch option for us ever since it opened in Oxford. However, in the name of Veganuary and enticed by some of the newer options I had yet to try, we headed back there to try it out.

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: Browns Brasserie & Bar

Happily there is at least one vegan option for each course, including nibbles, sides and extras. If you want a coffee or tea, there is soy milk available on request. For a pretty traditional restaurant (we entered to a live pianist) which I wouldn’t have expected to be particularly vegan friendly, it fares surprisingly well, even if there isn’t lots to choose from.

Review: Fressh

I thought I’d review this cute little plant-based fast food restaurant after enjoying a great value, tasty lunch there when meeting a friend. Yes it’s a journey away from Oxford, but Birmingham is one direct train ride away and I’m sure some of the people reading this blog will go or have been on a day trip there at some point.

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.

Review: Victors

Thanks to the lovely Tilly at That Oxford Girl, I was recently invited to try out Victors, a Hamptons style restaurant on the rooftop terrace at the Westgate shopping centre, with a couple of friends. I’ve heard mixed things about the restaurant.
