The Three John Scotts (Wetherspoons), Hull

So, last night we went to our local Wetherspoons, The Three John Scotts, in here Hull City Centre.

The last time we went to eat at a Spoons as vegans was back in Milton Keynes, and the experience was pretty depressing; we had the chickpea curry, and it came out cold, bland and although I don’t put much stock in presentation, kind of slopped on the plate. That said, this was last year, before the sudden explosion in big chains revamping their menus to include more, better quality vegan options.

So, in we went to see how things had changed. Now, I’m not going to explain to you the atmosphere or ambiance of a Spoons, I think pretty much everyone has been in at least one in their lives here in the UK, and we each establishment is so different it’s a meaningless statement. The important thing is the food.

Both Sam and I had the Five Bean Chilli, which came with rice and nachos. And you know what, it was tasty! The chilli itself was nice and warming without relying on over-the-top spice, the rice was good and fluffy and the nachos – well, let’s not lie, nacho chips are my kryptonite, so there was never going to be a problem there.

There’s not really much else to say on the subject; Wetherspoon’s offerings to vegans are still quite limited, but the quality has improved and as these things are all over the country and a popular pre-drinking/work-lunch option for a lot of people, it means that catering for the vegans in your party is even easier.
Sitting outside meant that it went cold pretty fast, but I can’t exactly hold old JD responsible for that.
