Welsh Pub Commits To Staying Vegan Following Veganuary Success
by Laura Barns
A country pub in South Wales has pledged to 'stay vegan' after trialling a vegan menu during Veganuary, which was extremely successful.
As part of Veganuary 2022, the monthly pledge program aimed at helping people go vegan for 31 days and beyond, The Queen Inn witnessed a notable increase in customers.
The Cwmbran pub had implored an entirely plant-based menu since the pub’s owners discovered the amazing effects of joining the movement. And there's great news for vegan locals and plant fans alike... the menu is here to stay, and is even being added to.
The pub is run by the Edwards family - Gareth, 50, and Jane, 56, who have owned the pub for 17 years, and their son, Ryan, 24. The pub is busy getting its vegan menu ready and has so far introduced four dishes: a vegan 'chicken' madras, 'chicken' kiev, baked Mexican 'chicken' enchiladas and a breakfast burger.
Ryan says the pub has received a lot of positive feedback for taking part in Veganuary and the support has been "overwhelming".
