Inviting options and locally sourced ingredients

I was not expecting to find many vegan options in a small village like North Berwick, yet the Herringbone had plenty! I wasn't very hungry so I only got a starter (bread, olives, oils) and two sides (sweet potato fries and sautéed potatoes), but they also had a beetroot risotto, veg haggis, a chickpea and squash burger, and many sides. I really liked my dishes, simple but incredibly tasty and ingredients locally sourced. Wines clearly marked vegan too!

Pros: Vegan menu, Good prices , Nice atmosphere

The best burger!

I’ve been to the Herringbone a few times and every time I get the chickpea and squash burger, it comes served on a warm wrap with mango chutney! Absolutely delicious!!!

Pros: Good vegan options, Nice for a dang meal (birthday etc)

Cons: A bit pricey but worth it

Great Vegan Food!!!!

This is the first time to Scotland and what a lovely way to start it at this restaurant.
Lovely friendly staff, huge array of drinks including some nice alcohol-free options.
Very chilled atmosphere, pets are allowed.
The vegan menu was very good we ordered 3 of the chickpea and squash burger, the 'bun' was actually a very tasty grilled wrap that tasted similar to a japati. Served with fries a small Bombay mix and lovely mango chutney.
We also had bread and olives and gnocchi for starters.
The olive that came with two oil dips, one was balsamic the other I think was pesto.
We finished it off with a almond and pear tart with sorbet ice cream.
It was absolutely excellent.

Oh and the strong flavoursome coffee with hot oat milk was divine.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, animal friendly, very genuine, Nice interior

Cons: I can't actually think of any.

Nice place!

Really cozy bar and restaurant with friendly and attentive staff. Lots of vegan options (according to earlier comments the menu must have been updated), which is always nice!

Impressive Vegan menu

For a small town like North Berwick, it is great to see a restaurant with a dedicated Vegan menu with a great variety of choices. I recommend the slow roasted tomatoes, cauliflower and roquette salad. Delicious!

Pros: Vegan options, Serve Oat and Almond milk

Nice vegan menu

Vegan menu updated regularly, we had a good burger with chips and cauliflower with mashed potato - unfortunately not sure it really was vegan as tasted like goat cheese.

Pros: vegan menu, probably best choice in the area

Cons: really vegan?

Generous & tasty vegan menu

Two of us shared the large jackfruit spring rolls, a chickpea & squash burger and a cashew nut curry. All were very tasty, with the (mild) curry particularly nicely spiced. Portions were generous.

Looks as if they've cunningly designed a number of vegan meals for which meat is an optional extra on the main menu.

They did admit that their vegan menu is very new though, and some of the desserts weren't yet available; would definitely have given the cashew cheese with poached figs a try if we could have.

Good range of drinks, from beer through wine to a very attractive range of cocktails.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Vegan desserts coming in May 2018!, Beer range misses out on modern "craft" stuff
