Amazing 3 course vegan menus served up by Ashton Gate’s catering team

9th February 2018

The VegfestUK team were kindly invited by the Ashton Gate hospitality and catering team to sample some of their dishes in preparation for their in-house restaurant’s full offer of vegan cuisine at the upcoming VegfestUK Bristol on May 26-27. And they certainly hit the spot with their 3-course vegan menu which offers not only rich taste and flavour but also diversity to suit a variety of taste buds.

The VegfestUK tasting team had a really awesome experience in one of the hospitality boxes with the quality food on offer, and before the big event in May, the organisers would like to demonstrate to their followers in this blog post, the effort and ingenuity from our new event venue in showcasing the depth and breadth of flavours, textures of plant-based cuisine in style.

This 3-course menu will be available at the event on May 26-27, by pre-order only. Details of bookings will be available shortly as well as times when the restaurant is open and serving. Please email katie.griffin@ashtongate.co.uk for advance bookings.

Supporters tickets are also available for those who wish to enjoy the hospitality features on Level 3, plus a goody bag on arrival and priority entrance – see the link here for details.

This new feature is expected to add a new dimension of in-house dining to VegfestUK’s currently mouthwatering selection of vegan street food, and it is our hope that visitors to VegfestUK Bristol have a really good experience at our re-developed event at this superb new venue.”
