Moving Mountains® Foods certainly have no beef with their burgers. No bun intended…🍔🙅
Recently we had the absolute pleasure of being invited to try Bill’s new vegan menu for Veganuary and we can’t wait to share what they have in store for us! We would also like to add how excited we are that Bill’s have a Vegan Set Menu! We have been huge fans of them since before our vegan days and now that does not have to change!

Let’s start with our favourite dishes of the evening. We absolutely loved Bill’s new Moving Mountains Burger. Made with a mushroom and beetroot patty with lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayo, the burger was soft and flavoursome, but most importantly very cheesy for all you cheese lovers out there (you can add extra cheese for an additional £1.35, smashed avo and fried aubergine for £1.95).
Our next favourite dish was the Duck Salad starter. Despite the menu not revealing exactly what it is made from, we can confirm that it is nice and chewy, thus very similar to actual duck or at least what our memory deems duck to taste like! Thanks to the chilli added, the Duck Salad has an unexpected, but not overwhelming, spicy kick to it! Now normally we are not one for a salad, but this can certainly be the exception.
Our favourite dessert would have to both – we have the biggest sweet tooth so frankly any dessert is good dessert (that’s not true we can think of plenty which do not suffice – fruit and basic sorbets!). The Coconut Ice Cream was, firstly thankfully not a sorbet, and secondly creamy and refreshing thanks to the mango sauce. The Chocolate Fondant certainly lives up to its name, it is nice and chocolatey. What makes it stand out, however, are the hazelnut crumbs it is sprinkled with.
What we didn’t like as much was sadly their Roasted Butternut Squash, Lentil and Coconut Soup. There was nothing significantly wrong with it, besides the fact that it could do with some extra spices. The main issue is that it did not really stand out to us. This is also true when it is compared to the Duck Salad Starter.
With mains coming in for just over £10 and dessert for around the £5 mark we certainly think the food is value for money. They also had a special deal on their vegan set menu – you can enjoy 2/3 courses for £13.95/ £15.95! Now how can one say no to that?
Please note that their Vegan Set Menu is served only until 7pm Monday to Friday.
