With vegan food believed to be the UK’s fastest growing culinary trend of last year, JD Wetherspoon has expanded its plant-based offerings with the launch of its new vegan burger.

The pub giant, which has around 900 outlets nationwide, has expanded its vegan menu with the launch of a vegan burger, made using plant-based patties from The Meatless Farm.

Priced at £9 per portion, the burger comes topped with avocado, salsa and rocket and is also available without toppings for those looking for a simple bite to eat.

Wetherspoon enthusiasts have since been posting pictures of the new product since its launch.

One user on Instagram said: “Wetherspoon launched a new vegan burger and you can bet I went straight there after work.

“I’m so glad restaurants are starting to stop launching veggie burgers as their vegan option and embracing fake meats.

“I actually really enjoyed it and would probably get it again.”

Wetherspoon's food development manager Oliver Addis said the pub chain is keen to offer its customers as wide a range of meals as possible including an array of vegan meals.

The budget pub and hotel chain has also recently launched a vegan full English breakfast to its menu, using Quorn's plant-based sausages.

"Wherever you live or travel in the UK, you're never far from a delicious hot vegan meal, thanks to Wetherspoon’s vegan options," added Addis.

The pub chain currently has a number of vegan-friendly options on the menu such as curries, bhajis, wraps, sausages and salads.
