Here at Watershed we are proud of our ethical, sustainable approach to locally sourced and seasonal food, and are committed to providing a broad range of options for our customers with special dietary requirements. So we are very excited indeed to announce that the good people at PETA have named us as one of the top five vegan-friendly cultural venues in the UK!
One of the fab vegan dishes on our Winter Menu that got the taste buds of the PETA crowd going was our Chickpea Patties with wilted spinach and carrot and coriander puree, which topped their list of favourites.
Other big crowd pleasers included our Vegetable Coconut curry (which is no longer on the menu - although we still do curry a couple of times a month with our Cinébites offer), the Roast Crown Prince squash baguette, and the popular mezze board served with chargrilled artichokes, olives, sundried tomatoes, roast squash, hummus, carrot and coriander dip and toasted pitta.
We were praised for "mastering the art of finely prepared vegan food", and helping customers choose meals that are as delicious as they are good for our health, the Earth and animals.
Our Executive Chef Oliver Pratt said:
"I am delighted that Watershed has been recognised by PETA for our vegan offer, which has always been a really important, critical focus in our menu creation. Our aim is to produce vegan dishes of excellence and this award is a ringing endorsement of all of our efforts. Thank you to PETA and thank you to all of our vegan customers for their support!"
We are in good company on the list - our friends at Chapter in Cardiff, Komedia in Bath, QUAD in Derby and the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal round out the top five.
