Separate from their regular a la carte menu, this new selection of dishes will offer greater variety to vegan and vegetarian Customer.

The new meat-free range boasts delectable sounding dishes such as asparagus with truffle hollandaise and HLT open sandwiches (a halloumi twist on the classic BLT). Omnivores could well be tempted to sample the new menus delights with side dishes including truffle arancini and zucchini fritti.

As well as a wide range of vegetarian-friendly dishes, vegans can also enjoy tucking into completely plant-based plates like warm Asian salad with watermelon, pak choi, broccoli and cashew nuts with a sesame, coriander and hoisin sauce, or sweet potato Keralan curry with chickpeas, broccoli and coconut.
