Generally speaking, most eagles aren’t vegan.
Which makes it all the more impressive that London now has one.
It’s the first London pub where everything – from the food and drink down to the fixtures and fittings – has been sourced from sustainable, non-animal sources. Spruced up with midnight blue and copper accents, a hefty central bar and cosy wall seating, here’s how it breaks down…
Their all-vegan menu is based around seasonal ingredients, with an emphasis on reducing waste. Not that there’ll likely be anything left over when the menu includes things like vegan pie, mash & liquor; ‘hen of the woods’ mushroom burgers with buffalo-style hot sauce; croquetas with truffle mayo; falafel with artichoke hummus, and that great pub classic, sticky toffee pudding.
Also 100% vegan. Which might not sound like a huge deal, until you learn that most wines and beers have ‘finings’ added at the end of the brewing process to improve clarity – ingredients which usually include gelatin or milk derivatives. So the drinks served here are all carefully chosen from vegan producers; including a rotating range of 14 beers on tap, a concise list of organic wines, and a swathe of cocktails.
Which, of course, contain no actual tails.
NOTE: The Spread Eagle is open daily, 12-10pm. You can find out more and book right HERE.
