Hubbard & Bell – Holborn

Two words: Bottomless roasties {gifted} 🤤⁣

OK, so bit of an unusual experience to share from @hubbardandbell 💭⁣

First of all, they’re making a real effort to think about what vegans really want to eat on a Sunday and I appreciate that 👏🏼 Vegans love cauli cheese too, ya know 😍 and bottomless potatoes? HEAVEN.⁣

However, some improvements are definitely needed. We were invited to review the mushroom wellington which the restaurant advertised as vegan. When our plate arrived, I could see that it was a nut roast (which wasn’t on the menu) so we asked a waiter, who insisted it was a wellington. When we asked another waiter, he confirmed this was a nut roast and said that it’s because the wellington isn’t vegan after all. I’ve fed back to the restaurant (but haven’t heard back) that this info *really* needs to be made clear, not only for vegans but also for people with allergies. It’s a serious issue.⁣

Anyway, here’s what we thought of the food:⁣

🌱⁣⁣Nut roast w/ kale, carrots, bottomless roasties & cauli cheese⁣⁣
💰£20 which isn’t cheap⁣
💭Roasties were fab – crisp outside, fluffy inside, lovely flavour. Mushroom gravy was delish but too salty – it dominated the whole dish. The cauli cheese had a good texture, v creamy but could’ve been thicker, and it was lacking flavour. The top layer was cheesy but that got lost underneath. I reckon some nooch up in there would work a treat! The nut roast was alright but didn’t hold together, it was more of a scramble and didn’t boast strong flavours. Veg was all great! Would’ve preferred a wellington, which is what I originally visited for ⁣
❓Order again? Maybe, there’s potential but change is needed⁣
