A vegan café which recently opened in a historic building has launched Sunday roasts and you won't miss the meat. 

Lisa Dunn opened Huggers along The Street in Long Stratton in December 2021 in the former home of The Tudor Bakehouse, with the premises dating back to the 1500s.

It proved an immediate hit with both vegans and non-vegans for its tasty homemade breakfasts and lunches.

On Sunday, May 22, she launched plant-based roast dinners, which completely sold-out and are available from 12.30pm until 6.30pm each week. 

It costs £12.95 and customers can choose either a nut roast, roast vegetable polenta or sausage wellington with all the trimmings, including cauliflower cheese with homemade Béchamel sauce and a Yorkshire pudding.

There are also vegan desserts such as sticky toffee pudding and Biscoff cheesecake.

Miss Dunn said: "Customers loved it and left with full bellies and hearts even without the meat."

You can pre-book by calling or messaging on social media, though there may be space for walk-ins.
