Review: Heavenly Desserts

Both new and old vegans will know that getting a good dessert when eating out is something of a rarity. Regular readers of this blog may have noticed that when it comes to pudding at local restaurants, I can be quite scathing (and I still maintain that a scoop of sorbet alone is not adequately meeting my cravings, while my friend is tucking into a rich chocolate brownie).

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: Papa John’s

I’d seen the hype around Papa John’s initial launch of their vegan options using Bute Island’s Sheese, and it seemed like enough time had passed for any teething problems to be ironed out, so I was keen to give them a try.

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: The Story Cafe

You may find yourself wondering how I found my way to The Story Café at The Story Museum as an adult without small children (to be honest I was slightly questioning it myself at the time!), but a quick glance at their menu and you’ll quickly figure it out.

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.
