Plant Dawgs at Pooley Bridge

Lovely location-parking outside & seating available on outside of restaurant for hotter days.

Dog friendly- practically dogs at every table.

Staff are attentive. Clean & friendly atmosphere.

As for vegan options, the menu is very limited! We had vegan hot dogs & chips with purple slaw. The bread was a bit too hard (rustic roll) and it was quite difficult to eat. Chips were nice and the slaw.

Wouldn’t go back due to the fact the menu was very limited.

Pros: Nice location, Attentive staff

Cons: Limited options

Had vegan hot dog with chips and vegan cheesy garlic bread. Really generous portions. They had other vegan options on the menu such as a moving mountains burger and also a vegan pizza.

Hot dogs!

Easy meal for vegans with multiple options on clearly labelled menu. We both went for the hot dog which comes with generous side salad, chips and coleslaw. Very fast service through ordering by phone at table. Loss of outdoor seating and a car park. Next door to a lovely independent book shop with great coffee!

Pooley Bridge Inn

Great option in the area. The risotto was vegan and delicious. The focaccia bread was also pretty tasty. The rice and chickpeas felt a little basic but it was still pretty good. I would definitely eat here again.

Delicious food, however forgotten order!

Visited here a week or so ago with friends, the setting was beautiful and the outdoor seating area was lovely. My two non-vegan friends received their food, and there was no sign of mine. I had to ask where my food was, and it turned out it hadn’t been made and the order was nowhere to be seen! We all ordered online, so who knows what went wrong, but my friends were almost finished eating by the time mine arrived. The food was delicious and I was really impressed with the options available, however I just wish the order hadn’t got lost and all our food arrived together as I would have rated higher.

There was a lot less choice here than we thought (maybe a reduced menu for covid?) and the prices were higher than on the website too. We got the loaded nachos to share (£9) and a burger (£13). Both were nice but I felt like they were overpriced and nothing special. The nachos were all store bought stuff - nice but not for £9.

After a days walking the next challenge was finding food ....

The main and vegan menu were immediately available. Plenty of variations of burgers, I don’t normally have burger but went for the Mexican. I love cooking and know how easy good tasty food can be to make; often pub food is “token” food but this was sooooo tasty!

Pros: Friendly Staff, Vegan home made cake available, Equal concern of quality for the vegan choices

Cons: No vegan cake left for me 😆, Only visited for the day
