Burger with a view
I’m about to break the vegan Internet.
You can buy one of the nicest vegan burgers in the UK and consume it in one of the most glorious settings in London. This is happening right now in the capital and it is fabulous.
What the heck am I babbling on about? Check out this vegan burger.
This burger was one of the best meals I’ve enjoyed in London. I bet you wanna know where I got it, right?
The Old Ship W6 is a historic pub on the Thames (since 1722), just a short walk from Hammersmith bridge on the Chiswick side. It has some of the best river views in the city and makes the most of them with fabulous outdoor dining decks and patios.
Check out the glorious location. It’s all about ducks and sailboats.
I adore the views, but The Old Ship W6 comes into its own when we start to discuss the vegan items nestled within its menu.
You’ve already seen my glorious burger, but the pub regularly serves several vegan dishes including:
- Pearl barley risotto with asparagus, chestnut mushrooms and tomato
- Beetroot hummus with grilled sourdough and organic sprouting salad
- Warm roasted roots salad with quinoa, organic sprouts and chickpeas
- Kale slaw
- Chunky chips
I spoke with pub general manager Imogen and she was happy to inform me all of their food is prepared with much consideration. A separate fryer is utilised for non-animal based ingredients, while the kitchen staff use separate tongs and cooking utensils when making vegan food.
She added that the chef is working to expand the vegan offerings and the evolving menu has recently featured a vegan brownie with almond custard as well as a meat-free cottage pie. Imogen also had a lot to say about their selection of vegan beers, including some on draught and a wide range of bottles.
This is what we need, London. Gorgeous pub food. Glorious river views. Vegan beer. Outdoor dining. Vegan-friendly chefs.
Get ready for summer.
