Stoke Place in South Buckinghamshire announces support for Veganuary with a brand new vegan menu available in its Michelin Recommended restaurant The King & Lamb. It is the first time that the hotel is supporting the charity Veganuary, which encourages tens of thousands of people to ‘try vegan in January’.
Stoke Place has thrown itself fully behind the Veganuary ethos with the hotel offering a choice of three vegan starters, three mains and three desserts throughout January.
Adam Salter, General Manager, said: “Stoke Place has a long history and association with food having been built by Royal chef Patrick Lamb. Many of our customers are vegan and we are proud to encourage more people to enjoy a plant based meal this January. Our chefs have enjoyed creating a vegan menu that we believe will delight both vegans and meat-eaters alike.’
