Nice vibe, good options, great Sunday lunch!

The Jackdaw is a nice country pub that has put a lot of effort into their vegan options, with lots of pub grub staples such as a full vegan roast complete with Yorkshire puddings and battered banana blossom with chips, as well as lighter options. On my first visit I had the avocado and vegan bacon sarnies and that was tasty. On my most recent return I had the three course vegan Sunday lunch which was excellent - crispy potatoes, decent amount of veg and a good nutroast. There's also a butternut squash and beetroot wellington option. Of course the most impressive thing is the vegan Yorkshires! So nice for a pub to put in the effort - they're not massively hard to make (I do them at home all the time) but they're something most omnivores would think are impossible so it's great that a non-vegan pub goes above and beyond to try new things, it really makes it worth travelling to. Dessert options on the menu were a crumble or ice cream, but they let us know they can veganise the affogato by swapping the biscotti with crumble topping and that worked nicely!

The bar area is dog friendly and there are some really nice walks in the area, and it's right on the 16 bus route so that was a plus for us as it makes for a very nice afternoon out.

Do book ahead, especially for Sunday lunch, as it's a popular choice so is often fully booked! They also do events so It's worth checking ahead to make sure the full menu will be available.

Fantastic vegan food, dog friendly, lovely!

Lovely food here, vegan options for all three courses, we had falafel bites to start, moving mountains burgers and apple tart with fruit and vegan ice cream, it was delicious, by far the best vegan food we have had out in a long time and definitely the best vegan food locally to Folkestone. Our little cockerpoo Rollo was made very welcome, theres a lovely garden outside and the covid safety measures are to a very high standard. The most surprising thing was the knowledge of the staff in terms of veganism, very impressive. We will definitely return and cant recommend high enough!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Knowledgeable staff, Lovely garden and Dog friendly
