A chain of pubs across Suffolk and Norfolk is now offering up vegan ‘fish and chips’ – which looks almost identical to the real thing.

Hungry Horse has launched a vegan range as part of its new menu in response to the increasing popularity of plant-based diets.

The vegan range features seven plant-based dishes, including pub classic fish and chips, which is produced by VBites and is made of succulent fish-free ‘fish’ flakes, which contain fewer calories and more fibre than a standard cod portion.

Instead of fish, the vegan equivalent is covered in breadcrumbs and contains konjac flour (a herb popular in Asia), tapioca starch and wheat starch.

Dwayne Balfour, general manager at the Greengage in Bury St Edmunds, one of the pubs to offer the menu, said: “We know our local customers have a wide range of diets and tastes, so it’s important that we experiment with exciting new dishes and flavour combinations to ensure we cater for this.

“We’ve not only introduced a number of new plant-based dishes to our menu, but we’ve also put a spin on some of the traditional pub classics we offer, such as fish and chips which is now available with vegan fish-free flakes and is already proving popular with locals.”

More than 100 people could be facing the prospect of losing their jobs this Christmas in one Suffolk town.

The German budget supermarket chain is moving into a town still reeling from the loss of its M&S and Asda.

‘There is a tendency to talk Essex down - London looks down on our ability to prosper. But we should be hugely proud of our county.’ That’s the message from Adam Jones, a partner at Birketts law firm and one of the masterminds behind a new report showing profits at Essex’s top 100 firms have shot up by 14.3% in the last year.

Colchester Business Enterprise Agency has been announced as the winner of the Enterprise Engagement Award at the National Enterprise Network (NEN) Annual Conference.

Savills says political uncertainty is doing little to dampen the Suffolk property market - with changes in lifestyle driving increased demand for town centre homes.
