Vegan lovely!

We don't think just because you are vegan you should miss out on some of the good things in life.

Like 'fish' and chips for example. The latest additon to our ever growning Vegetarian and vegan selection is this delicious take on a classic.

Tofu wrapped in Nori, with a tangy vegan beer batter, served with our own tartar sauce and of course chips and mushy peas!  

Even if you just want to eat less meat or are having a meat free day. This dish really packs a punch with a real taste of the sea and you don't feel your are left out with ' just the veggie option'

Let us know what you think.

Zwanze Day 20th September 2014 at 8pm at The Dove Broadway Market.

Every year the brewers at Cantillon famous for their Lambic beers, produce a very limited quantity of an exclusive beer known as the Zwanze. This year it is 'Cuvee Florian' and you can find out more about its history here.

Only 45 outlets around the globe get a barrel of this exclusive brew. This year The Dove on Broadway Market is one of only three proud outlets in the UK who will be serving this great beer.

The tradition is the Zwanze is simultaneously tapped with the Cantillon Brewery in Belgium, 8 pm on Saturday 20th September, 2014.



All proceeds from the sale of the Zwanze will go to St Joseph's Hospice in Hackney. We only get one barrel and the beer will be sold on a first come first served basis from 8pm. 

We look forward to welcoming you then.

Happy Zwanze Day!
