It’s the Vegan Eats and Cheats on the High Street special!
For Bury Borough Vegetarian and Vegan group Christmas meal we headed down to Greenmount Toby Carvery… ‘Vegans at a carvery?’ you might say! Well, prepare to be surprised. Toby Carvery offer 3 regular vegan main courses – Butternut Squash, Brown Rice and Kale Crumble,Spicy Chickpea and Carrot Wholegrain Wellington and Lentil and Parsnip Cottage Pie! All of these can be joined by flavoured or plain roast potatoes, maple syrup parsnips, cranberry sauce, mustard, mint sauce, sage and onion stuffing, apple sauce and vegetarian gravy along with all the veggies on the deck. * your local Toby may butter the ‘on deck’ veg, but if you check in advance they can prepare you some separately if this is the case.
Fun was had by all and we got free crackers and coffee as booking with the festive menu. The festive menu also included a mushroom and ale pie! I tried all of the mains and they were all delicious, but the best bit was the parsnips! For dessert we had the amazing chocolate cherry torte, surprisingly good, more like a dense brownie or flour-less chocolate cake, with a lovely black-forest note to it. *we took our own soya cream and soy milk for coffee and tea.
So a big thank you to Toby Carvery UK for your excellent vegan menu choices and another thank you to the staff at Greenmount for your accommodation of our group.
Merry Christmas love from India
