lots of choices - Edit

Chain burger place but cut above. Lots of choice and a number of vegan burgers. Rosemary chips v nice. Beers are also marked as vegan or not which is nice addition.

Pros: great choice, beers marked as vegan

p good - Edit

I ordered TEX-MEX vegan burger with additional roasted peppers and rosemary salt fries. The burger itself was well seasoned, guacamole was fresh and it was overall really tasty. The con was that the peppers were undercooked and bun got a little soggy at the end. The fries were not as salty as i wanted them to be but the portion size made up for it.

Pros: Filling meal, Nicely seasoned burger, Staff

Cons: Underseasoned fries

vegans friendly but animal unfriendly - Edit

I do not understand why this establishment is on happy cow, ok they serve vegan options but they are a company whose main product is basically a fried chunk of an animal. They serve soya milk which is progressive but so do all the major coffee shop chains, are we supposed to litter happy cow with these also. I applaud the vegan society for influencing any meat based company to include ethical products, it's great to highlight veganism in a positive light to show others than we don't just eat salads and for young vegan or vegan curious individuals it's great they can go to a burger joint with friends and not have to feel abnormal.

But seriously is any long established vegan really gonna visit this place when there are so many more ethical options to be found in all the major cities. I know that Heather Mills Mcartney once introduced a vegan burger to Burger King, I don't know if they still sell it because I have no intention of ever frequenting such an awful place.

And finally, I really question the cruel slaughter methods used for some of the animal products and would not want to be anywhere that condones such barbaric practices.

Pros: vegan options

Cons: meat, meat and lots more meat

Burger Off - Edit

Fair enough and most certainly a marketing strategy but there are indeed quite a number of vegan options here for those who are happy to consume them in an environment driven by meat. Not on my watch and certainly not in the Mos Eisley of Newcastle otherwise known as The Gate.

Pros: some vegan options

Cons: too much meat on the menu
