The Hope and Anchor, in Wanlip Road, now has a menu which includes seven plant-based dishes, including pub classic fish and chips.

The meal, which is produced by VBites, is made of succulent fish-free ‘fish’ flakes - and the menu also includes a Bakewell tart which is served with vegan vanilla flavoured ice cream.

Samantha Butler, general manager, at The Hope and Anchor, said: “We know our customers have a wide range of diets and tastes, so it’s important that we experiment with exciting new dishes and flavour combinations to ensure we cater for this.

“We’ve not only introduced a number of new plant-based dishes to our menu, but we have also put a spin on some of the traditional pub classics we offer, such as fish and chips which is now available with vegan fish-free flakes and is already proving popular.

“So, whether you’re vegan, veggie, or just fancy trying something new, we look forward to welcoming you!”

The dishes on offer include a vegan roasted tomato soup, served with vegan poppy seed bun, chickpea and sweet potato curry and a vegan falafel burger.
