So, it’s time once again to revisit one of our favourite venues: The Lady Luck in Canterbury, which you will have heard about previously if you’re a regular reader. This time it’s the turn of the Greenhouse Burger, one of their specials which appears to pop up regularly (or has been available on at least two of our visits, at any rate).
The Pitcher and Piano is a bar in local Tunbridge Wells which changes its menu fairly regularly. We have previously reviewed one of their burgers, but this time it’s the turn of their new Burger to Bun menu. The mushroom and sticky red onion burger is described on the menu as follows:
Do you remember we recently did a review on one of the Lady Luck’s burgers and I promised more? Well, guess what we’re talking about today…
I’ve already gone on and on about how much I love the place, so let’s skip the decor and ambience and head right on to what you really care about: the food. The BBQ pulled jackfruit burger is described thusly:
I’m excited to start telling you all about the Lady Luck, because it has rapidly become one of our favourite places to go. Despite the fact that it’s over an hour’s drive away from home, we’ve already been 3 times – and I even took my parents! This is our absolute favourite bar right now, and with a fantastic veggie and vegan menu, there’s nothing not to like.
Last year I brought you a review of the then-veggie burger at Birchwood Farm, and on this year’s visit I was pretty pleased to find that they have changed the menu! That means another veggie burger for me, and a new review for you.
There’s not a lot of information on the menu – all it has to say is this:
Back when J and I were living 2 hours apart, we had a little routine when he would come to visit me. The O’Neills pub in St Albans featured heavily in this routine, as a place where we would often go to drink and eat. In fact, it’s where we went on the night we first got together, so there are plenty of memories there. We now live too far away to head back to that exact branch, but recently headed into London for a bit of Irish nostalgia at the King’s Cross venue.
We don’t usually head out to Ashford, but recently managed to meet my parents there while they were on the way to France. Next to the hotel where they were staying is a conveniently located pub with a rustic atmosphere, The Hop Pickers. The menu is fairly limited, so it’s a good job they had one thing that appealed instantly: a mushroom burger.
The Barn is a pub and restaurant in Tunbridge Wells, and until recently there wasn’t much to speak of on the bar menu (there’s only so many nachos you can eat). But the recent addition of a halloumi burger to the menu meant we absolutely had to go and check out the changes. Here’s what the menu has to say about this item:
I recently ate this veggie burger while out meeting friends to celebrate Christmas, and of course a great night was had. There was Baileys, good food, and good company, and what more could you wish for? The sweet potato and mozzarella burger, as described on the menu, is served “with peppers and soya beans served in a floured bap with seasoned chips, homemade coleslaw, and a salad garnish”.
You probably know by now that I unashamedly LOVE Wetherspoons. I’m the first to admit that in some towns you will find undercooked or burnt food, rude waitresses, and half the menu not available. But when you find the right Spoons, you will find a menu full of fantastic and great tasting veggie options, all at a brilliantly low price. After putting the Mexican and veggie burgers at the top of my top ten list, you can imagine my excitement when I read their latest new menu… featuring the all-new Texan burger.
