  • More of us our choosing Vegan

    More and more of us are choosing to go vegan which we have noticed here at Greens. Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. A follower of either the diet or the philosophy is known as a vegan.

    Over the years there has been a rise in people choosing to go Vegan. The most recent survey conducted in the UK found that over 542,000 people are following a vegan diet, an increase of more than 3.5 times the number of vegans over the past decade, making Veganism one of Britain's fastest growing lifestyle movements. The rise in Veganism is due to more young people making more compassionate and ethical life choices. More and more big eating chains are offering more vegan options as well as abstaining from using animal products in their foods.

    Studies have shown that choosing a vegan diet can also benefit your health. Whole vegan diets are generally higher in certain nutrients providing more fibre, antioxidants and beneficial plant compounds. They have a tendency to reduce your calorie intake, making them effective in promoting weight loss. The diet reduces the risks of developing certain health problems such as type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, and heart disease. If you suffer from arthritis studies have shown that vegan diets based on probiotic-rich whole foods can significantly decrease symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. As well as reducing the risks of certain diseases a vegan diet can reduce the onset of a migraine.

    Here at Greens, we have seen a rise in customers asking for vegan dishes. Our philosophy is that anyone can enjoy vegan food, so we take pride in ensuring our vegan offering is delicious and tasty. If its breakfast and scrambled tofu, or a full-on main meal of toad out of the hole complete with vegan yorkies, or just a snack or lovely vegan ice cream sundae you're after  Green's is the place to go in Grasmere. Aga makes delicious vegan meringues that mere mortals think are the real thing!

  • Nobody's Fool!

    Check out the latest sweet treat to adorn the dessert menu for our evening diners.

    Homemade 'Gooseberry and Elderflower Fool', served with a shortbread biscuit, damson coulis and mint.

    It's a perfect serving for summer and at £5.95, you'd be a 'fool' not to snap it up (sorry!)

    Don't forget we are open tomorrow evening for dinner, from 6.

    And a triumphant finish: tuck into a marmalade glazed bread and butter pudding with lashings of custard or clotted cream, or our famous lemon posset topped with blueberry coulis.
