Queen Inn in Upper Cwmbran, Wales to serve vegan food for weeks | United Kingdom | News

The Queen Inn, located in Upper Cwmbran in South Wales, participates in the Veganuary, a tradition where people adopt a meatless diet throughout the month of January. So, he’ll serve plant-based meals for the month and ditch his usual fare of steaks, burgers, traditional roast dinners, and other entrees.

All drinks and snacks will also be suitable for vegans, reports Wales Online.

Gareth Edwards, 50, who runs the pub with his wife Jane, 56, and son Ryan, 24, say they have already received positive reviews. Jane herself went vegan a year ago.

Ryan added, “We have seen the incredible effect a vegan diet can have on your health.

“Overall the vegan diet is known to be much better for the environment and to avoid unnecessary killing of animals. My dad also participates in Veganuary.

“The vegan community is growing massively and it deserves more than a few options on a pub menu. Our vegan options have increased a lot this year and even after Veganuary our menu will still be at least 50% vegan.

The pub is busy putting together their vegan menu and has so far introduced four courses: vegan “chicken” madras, kiev “chicken” kiev, Mexican “chicken” enchiladas and a breakfast burger.

However, the pub has published an extensive menu of small vegan, dairy and gluten-free dishes, pub classics, desserts and even a Sunday lunch menu which can be viewed on their Facebook.

Ryan continued, “A lot of vegans and customers are interested in trying the options – even people we didn’t expect to try them are open-minded and will try some of the options.

“We’re on track to have an incredibly busy January as we’ve had more bookings for the month than ever before in our 17 years of experience.”
