Eat and Two Veg

Went there about one week ago and regretted it. Food was not tasty, not the least bit inspired, and terrible value for money!

First of all I the menu seems almost entirely composed of pretend meat that generally comes from a can or package of some sort (soya burgers, sausages, "chicken"), which frankly requires no imagination or effort to prepare whatsoever, and in themselves are not very tasty. Then, on top of it everything seems to be fried or drenched in litres of cream sauce - to hide the lack of taste maybe? Vegetarian maybe; healthy or even enjoyable? certainly not.

Vegetarian food can be SO interesting, tasty and full of flavour that I find it really disappointing when I go to places like this which seem to be like McDonalds, but, of course, because it's "vegetarian" (trendy?) they think they can get away with charging 10 pounds for a processed burger and 13 pounds for some kind of (tasteless) thai dish. I think not. You can generally get a better vegetarian option in any regular "non-vegetarian" restaurant or pub nowadays than what is being offered at this place.
