Fantastic and amazing food - Edit

This is a fantastic place, not only is the food vegan but so is all the drinks. They will even bake a vegan cake for you, which is absolutely delicious (I ordered a vegan chocolate cake for my daughters birthday) which was massive and delicious. The staff are always so welcoming and friendly.
I highly recommend this place, they also have a great beer garden in the back.

Friendly pub, good food - Edit

Great relaxed atmosphere and friendly service.
The menu included quite a range of burgers, hot dogs and a kebab. Tofish and chips too. In fact most of the mains were served with chips and a side salad. They also had panini and bar snacks (ten acre crisps, vego bars, vegan wagon wheels aka Round up!).
I enjoyed the hot dog and also shared a side of coleslaw - a proper homemade version which I really enjoyed.

Pros: Food AND drinks all vegan, Generous portions and reasonably priced , Nice atmosphere

Cons: Limited tables (book or a drink at the bar)

Best vegan junk food I've ever had! - Edit

I've visited the monument a few times with friends and family, and I'm always satisfied.
Great bar staff, selection of drinks and snacks too.
The main menu has so much to choose from since opening early in the year. Burgers, hot dogs, panini's and a few special choices that always leave me full and content.
Highly recommend the Döner Kebab.

Pros: Excellent food, Low price, Wide choice + GF options

Delicious! - Edit

A really lovely vegan pub with a nice and relaxed atmosphere. The food was delicious, we had a really lovely Linda McCartney burger with salsa, nachos and fries which we all LOVED. Gluten free options are available here which was fantastic as there was an entire menu dedicated to this rather than one or two options, my mum said it made her feel normal again which is great. The staff were super friendly and it was such a lovely experience to eat "normally" again, we'll definitely come back!

Pros: Everything is vegan so you can dine with absolutel

Cons: Only serves fast food style food such as burgers,

Vegan Junk Food - Edit

We were visiting Canterbury for the day and went off to find this place as it sounded good. However it really did not live up to expectations in terms of food.

All the burgers are simply soya protein so no variety in taste and the seitan was basically deep fried dry greasy strips served in a dry pitta....not at all appetising.

A real shame as they could create something good here if they took the time to actually cook fresh food and use full flavours, which is what vegan food should be made of!

Pros: Nice garden and pub

Cons: Food lacked taste

excellent - Edit

I'm vegan and took my omni husband, the food was delicious, although I'd have swapped the halloumi salad I had for the hubbys battered prawnz! Staff are lovely and friendly, can't wait to go back with the rest of the family.

Pros: everything is vegan, so I dont have to think about

Cons: none that I found.

veggiegal97 21 Nov 2017 - Hi Veganhippychic! I'm a bit confused as you state that you're a vegan yet you ordered the halloumi salad and yearned for the battered prawns? I'm thinking about going to the Monument soon and I was just wondering does this mean EVERYTHING is vegan - such as vegan halloumi and vegan prawns? My omni-boyfriend will probably want something that he would consider 'real' cheese and mea/fish. Hope you can clear this up for me, thank you.

Great vegan food and drink - Edit

It's great that Canterbury now has a vegan pub. The Italian burger was excellent and the staff friendly and welcoming. A good selection of beers. We ate in the large garden, a pleasant space. We were too full to try the desserts.

Pros: Excellent food, Good selection of vegan drinks, Friendly and welcoming.

Lovely friendly vegan pub - Edit

Really liked this place, tried it on a Saturday lunchtime and it was quite quiet around 12:15 but did get busier. I was glad to have the choice of seats in the lovely beer garden as not all tables have parasols and I'm a sun-hater :) The garden was really pleasant and quiet, a proper garden with border plants and a friendly cat (who didn't pester for food).

I had the battered 'prawns', chips, and peas, it was great. My friend's poppers and gravy were lovely too. And the torte and cheesecake for dessert were fantastic! Mocktails not bad value (2 for £7 then) and a free tap water dispenser was appreciated. I can't wait to go back and try more of their menus.

Pros: Delicious food, Good selection of food, Lots of seating inside and out

Cons: Struggling to think of any - more parasols maybe?!

Friendly staff, fully vegan alcohol and junk food = win! - Edit

We went on a Tuesday evening and they had a really fun quiz. We had some drinks and food. The mexican burger and seitan doner were both fantastic and their cheesy chips were to die for! Only just opened but would be great for them to get a desert menu together at some point.

Pros: Friendly staff , Good Prices, Great Location

Cons: If not into fake meat then their food may not be f
