Whenever I’ve stayed at a premier inn there’s been a restaurant either attached or very close by and there’s always the option of a meal deal to include breakfast and an evening meal. This one happened to have a restaurant called Table Table attached, there was also a bar which is always a good thing 😉.
Although the vegan options were limited they are clearly labelled on the menu making them easy to spot. So for starters we have, well, nothing for vegans 😔 not the end of the world as I can live without a starter. There are options for vegetarians though and they do sound nice, I’m glad no one else chose to have a starter though as I was pretty hungry and didn’t fancy watching everyone else eating whilst I had to wait for the main!
The mains available for vegans consisted of either the Green Thai Curry or the BBQ Vegan Burger, this is a wheat and soya based burger in a vegan burger bun, topped with bbq pulled soya and burger sauce. It comes served with skinny cut fries and burger relish which is the option I opted for purely because I really fancied a burger 🍔. Like I said this doesn’t actually give me many options to go for but the burger was really tasty!
Everyone at my table had a burger and although I was the only vegan the rest of the burgers also looked good and were enjoyed by all. It’s nice to know this restaurant is easily accessed when staying in premier inns and it gives options for different diet types. Again the choices for desserts were extremely limited with the only option being Gin Fizz Sorbet which I’m not a huge fan of so I opted out and watched the others enjoy their Sundaes 👍🏼.
The following sides are available for vegans:
Skinny Cut Fries
Mixed Side Salad
Sweet Potato Fries
*unfortunately, as I was so hungry I ate the burger without taking a photo 🤦🏻♀️ such a fail! But I did find a pic online so you get the idea.
I’ve got to admit I’m not really one to shop in Iceland regularly, yes I pop in here from time to time to pick up the odd bit of shopping but lately I’ve been really impressed with what I’ve found in here. The no bull burgers were actually recommended to me so when I was in here picking up a no cheese pizza I had to give them a try.
They are soya based and actually look and taste like meat! This may not suit some long term vegans but for me it’s a great burger replacement which I hope will come in particularly handy over the bbq season. They are really easy to cook as you just pop them in the oven from frozen and I had them in a bun with curly fries 🤭 and salad 😋.
It’s a great Friday night dinner, I really enjoyed it and recommend you give them a go 👍🏼 I’m planning on trying out some more products from this range so keep your eyes open for the reviews.
Ok, so I had to comeback in here, not only for another couple of cocktails (I was not successful at dry January 😬) but there was more on the menu I wanted to try. So I had a look over the menu whilst sucking away at my love on the beach 🍹 and chose my starter of Chickpea Falafel served warm with a minted yoghurt dipping sauce.
I apologise for the fact I’d eaten most of this before taking the photo but I’d once again tucked straight in as soon as it arrived 🤦🏻♀️
This was a real treat for my taste buds, I love falafel although I don’t tend to have it too often and am yet to have come across a vegan minted yoghurt sauce which compliments this really well. The portion size was just right for me and after polishing off my drink I was ready for my main meal. I opted for the Veggie Supreme Burger although I’d enjoyed my jambalaya so much previously that I was close to having this again.
The Veggie Supreme Burger 🍔 is a chargrilled flat mushroom, sweet peppers, beetroot, tomato and lettuce with violife cheese in a ciabatta and was served with fries. Mmmmm it was my first vegan burger and I wasn’t disappointed, the flavours and texture of the vegetables with the sprinkling of cheese on top of the ciabatta was a perfect combination. It’s also something I could very easily make myself at home so I need to remember this for a good lunch time treat.
I wasn’t hungry for a dessert, I’d eaten plenty but yes I had a look at the dessert menu and yes there was a vegan option and yes it was chocolate 🤭
This happened 😬 and once again I almost didn’t get the photo 😂 but it was delicious! So glad I managed to find room for this and have a taste. I was once again really chuffed with this place and with the dessert this time too, I’m going to give this a 9.5/10.
This weekend we took a trip to Byron Burger, I’ve only been here twice before but the burgers were delicious and there’s a lot of choices available with both beef and chicken (plus vegetarian options) on the menu. This was my first visit since finding out about my intolerances so it was a bit of a test for me. I’d already taken a look at the menu online and had decided my safest bet was to go for the classic burger without mayonnaise and the sweet potato fries with a drink of water (I’m getting used to this but would be nice to have a little something different from time to time). When placing my order I let the waitress know I had a lactose intolerance as I didn’t want any butter or anything going in my roll, she immediately said the manager would need to come and speak to me before placing my order. I found this a bit embarrassing to be honest because I just hate making a fuss, but it was actually a good move as the manager came over with an allergy sheet. She asked me what I was planning on having and then went through the sheet to check if it was safe, unfortunately the roll wasn’t which meant I had to have the skinny option (this replaces the roll with some salad). I decided to replace the roll I would double up on my Burger, this really wasn’t necessary 🐽, but it tasted good! The sweet potato fries were safe although the manager did warn me that there is a possibility of cross contamination with other friers that have used milk – as my intolerances aren’t too extreme I went with it and had no ill effects. I had no dressing on my salad and I really enjoyed my meal, if anything I had too much food and was far too full for the rest of the day!! I was really pleased with how the restaurant dealt with my requests and would definitely feel comfortable coming back again and seeing what else I could have to eat from here. It’s worth checking out the website first to get an idea of what you could be ok having before you take a visit but for anyone with intolerances it’s worth giving it a go and seeing what you can have.
