VEGGIE lovers are being encouraged to create their own meat-free masterpiece for a Goring pub.

The Bull, a traditional pub restaurant in Goring Street, is looking to strengthen its vegetarian offering after finding 46 per cent of British adults eat less meat than they did ten years ago.

The Bring it to the Vege-Table competition was launched nationwide by Chef & Brewer to find two new vegetarian dishes for its menu.

Residents can submit starter and main course suggestions via the Chef & Brewer website.

A shortlist of five starters and five main course dishes will then go head-to-head in a nationwide public vote, to decide which vegetarian dishes will feature on all 136 Chef & Brewer pub menus up and down the country, including The Bull.

The creators of the winning dishes will each be rewarded with a new Le Creuset kitchen set, worth up to £500.

Charlotte Williams, general manager at The Bull, said: “Our research shows that Goring residents love the occasional vegetarian meal. But it’s surprising to see beans on toast (60 per cent), egg on toast (59 per cent) and vegetable soup (58 per cent) came out on top as the most popular meat-free dishes.

“We are confident that our locals have a bit more of a creative flare when it comes to their veggie dishes and can’t wait to see the tasty dishes they propose.”

The report, which surveyed 1,500 adults, found the average Brit is now eating up to two meat-free evening meals per week and three meat-free lunches. Whether it is a vegetarian lasagne or a goat’s cheese tart, The Bull is looking forward to seeing what exciting suggestions the public comes up with.
