Vegan pub grub

As we were staying in Oswaldtwistle for a few weeks, we decided to try out the vegan pub grub at the Stanhill.

They have a separate vegan menu with a choice of starters, mains and desserts. The mushrooms on sourdough starter was delicious and big enough to share. The banana blossom fish was interesting, but the batter was a bit too thick for me. Good to try if craving fish and chips.

All in all, a good place to go for vegan food.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Good portion sizes , Outside sitting

Separate vegan menu

It's fantastic that a small village pub has a separate vegan menu with lots of choices. the place was nice, with friendly and attentive staff. I had the 'flat mushroom red pepper & beetroot burger' (it's not a burger at all, just a slice of mushroom, a bit of red pepper, and a slice of beetroot in a bun, but pleasant anyway) with a side of the crispy tofu chips (not crips in the slightest, very very soft, but nice enough regardless) and my husband had the banana blossom fish & chips which was delicious. I had food envy to be honest. I'd go again, if I was ever in that part of the world again.

Pros: Accommodating for vegans , Vegan choices available at all times, Lots of vegan options

Excellent Vegan Options, What A Great Find

The Stanhill Pub is an unlikely place to find vegan options yet proves the growing popularity of veganism. The Stanhill recently introduced a vegan menu, which is not some token gesture either, but well thought out with creative dishes. I had a chat with head chef Nathan via email prior to our visit about my allergies and was impressed with his responses and patience with my queries.

We were shown to a cosy table for two and had a quiet drink whilst perusing the menu and chose starters of mushroom and spinach bruschetta for me and leek and potato soup for hubby. Our starters were excellent, the soup was thick and velvety, the mushrooms were perfectly cooked and the food was well seasoned.

I knew which main course hubby would choose, as he loves tofu and although my intention was to have the vegan fish and chips, I ended up choosing the gnocchi.
The main courses, like the starters were absolutely spot on, packed with great flavours and quickly demolished, although I left a little gnocchi as it was a huge portion.

My experience exceeded my expectations, so many menus sound promising and are a complete let down on eating, but not at The Stanhill. I had a quick word with front of house manager Sam, who said the vegan menu was proving popular with not only vegans but non vegans too. I think the fact they offer the vegan menu to all customers and is not hidden away as at so many places, is a great idea. My only slight critique is its a shame the wine list does not include vegan friendly wines, so I took a photo and will research before my next visit, but hope The Stanhill will look at this for future. I will definitely be returning, sooner rather than later, as there are so many dishes I want to try, as does hubby. Highly recommended.

Pros: Vegan menu, Creative vegan dishes, Vegan desserts

Cons: Vegan wines not labelled
