Cheeze! - Edit

Ponga specialises in vegan cheeze so there are lots of cheezey options on the menu including (but not limited to) pizza.
After sharing the baked camambear to start (delicious gooeyness!) I opted for the mushroom pizza which was great.
The portions are so generous we couldn't manage desert. I will need to go back for the cherry bakewell cheezecake.

Pros: Food is all vegan, Generous portions, Central location

Superb - Edit

Maidstone is full of generic eateries but it is refreshing to find to a plant based menu in the medieval pub that is Drakes. It’s a Thursday night with good tunes in the background, inspiring food and vegan wine. Impressive x

Thank goodness - Edit

Maidstone isn’t brilliant for independent food. Loads of chains but little else survives.
I’ve only just started trying the plant based way of life so I was delighted to find we do actually have a place to eat in town.
I’ve only been once and it appears mainly to be pizzas, but they are gluten free and vegan and above all delicious. Loaded with toppings and almost too much (though I did manage it all I think you could take away anything you couldn’t manage), I certainly didn’t need a dessert so next time I’ll make sure I’m more hungry!!
Very rich flavours, very crusty delicious bases and so much no cheese cheesyness!! Perhaps not all that healthy but what a lovely treat.
Please go, let’s keep this inspired restaurant going!

Pros: Generous portions, Gluten free and vegan, Good venue within Drakes

Cons: Parking not always easy in Maidstone
