100 per cent vegan pub to open in east London.London's first 100 per cent vegan pub is scheduled to open on Homerton High Street, a hipster district in the east of the city, on 19 January.
The Spread Eagle, which boasts that all of its "food, drinks, fixtures and fittings" are purely plant-based, is part of the growing international veganism movement which involves abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet.
Dishes on offer will include Jackfruit carnitas, vegan chorizo and nachos topped with “cheez” made with soya and coconut oil, as well as vegan pub classic like beer-battered “tofish” and chips, while its drinks menu is also strictly vegan.
The pub's opening comes as British supermarket chains such as Tesco and Waitrose offer an increasing selection of vegan products.
The launch of The Spread Eagle follows London’s first-ever vegetarian pub, The Coach and Horses, which opened in Soho in 2012.
