    Getting a concession in from Rice & Peas on Grove Vale would be the local choice? Would be great if they were interested in doing something.

    Cyclodunc Where's the slam tent, mate?

    B.I.G told me a story about that place, but I can't remember it...

    I might mute this thread before it’s re-told. I still want to eat there...

    I can't remember most of the stories B.I.G tells me. Or I can remember them, but I struggle to comprehend their meaning. I'm still trying to visualise some sort of riot that allegedly broke out in the stand at the Oxford City match.

    As always, the vegan option is chips, though to be fair that's more than was ever on offer before at Champion Hill (unless plain boiled rice from the Thai place floats your boat)

    The Thai place seems to do a variety of vegetarian options. Once you start asking for vegan, it's basically non-league football and you're expecting a small business to cater for potentially a tiny number of of people and make a loss. Personally, if my requirements were that specific, I'd make my own arrangements. A greater issue for me has been not always having the same outlets at every game, therefore having something suitable at one match but not the next.

    Plenty of meat eaters will eat vegan food if it's tasty enough. Given our demographic, I'd imagine there's more than a few vegans coming to every game and it's hardly some tiny faddy food niche any more - almost all the mainstream fast food outlets at least offer one vegan choice these days...

    A story about Rice & Peas? Even I can't remember it :)

    I have zero expectations about getting fed at a non league football ground for the good reasons that Pink Panther raises...I always make my own arrangements, as does the other Hamlet Vegan that I know

    Me too but wouldn't it be great if Hamlet was one of the very few clubs that actually welcomed the growing numbers of vegans (and people trying to eat less meat)?

    I'm an omnivore. I could happily go several days without meat if the food is tasty enough. My grey area is vegan/vegetarian. It's a bit like skimmed/semi-skimmed milk. One tastes like water, the other tastes like milk. One Hamlet supporting friend who is vegetarian told me that "if I can't eat anything with eggs I'll starve."

    A vegan friend baked some cakes for a Halloween party in our local last year which were delicious. I couldn't believe how restricted the ingredients were. (I'm sure she could make a fortune as a vegan food entrepreneur, but she's wasting her time slaving for the NHS instead.)

    From what I can see we have put out a massive shoutout on Twitter, I guess if a vegan stall replies and is happy to take a space, they will be there, if none are interested or won't pay what we are asking (if anything) then there won't be.

    Good call. A specialist vegan stall is probably better than a well meaning small business attempting to offer a "vegan option".

    Don't Forest Green Rovers have exclusively vegan catering?

    Vegan food can be every bit as delicious as food with dead animals. But shit vegan food will taste as shit as shit cheap nasty meat.

    I don't mind if the veggie/vegan options come from a stall selling dead animals so long as it's not cooked in the same lard-tastic grill!

    And yes, Forest Green are 100% vegan and doing a good job of it, by all accounts:

    A few high profile sportspeople have gone vegan. Jermaine Defoe and another Premier League footballer I can't remember. Clearly it can be done. Knowledge and availability of ingredients seem to be the key. As I said earlier my friend Louise produces some delicious recipes. Too bad she's already spoken for!

    It's more than a few, by they way. Some of the biggest names in sport are vegan now.

    I used to work with David Haye in the same job for the same money at South Bank University media resources department in 1998. Now one of us is a multi-millionaire and world champion, but sadly not me! I recall him ordering a massive meat feast-type pizza on a staff night out and being unable to finish it. Lightweight! He's a lovely bloke though, and his mum Jane worked there too, and I bet she gave him a right bollocking for all his media trash talk.

    Slow Richie's are the best burgers in the world. Nothing beats them. Sadly they are busy on Saturdays at the Brick Tap room. Unless they franchised...?!

    Maybe they could sell us trade price sausage rolls.

    I used to go to the brewey on home game when you lot all drank there together before games. Just for sausage roll.

    Quite. There’s a tremendous effort going on to get us back to Champion Hill, across many workstreams and I tip my hat to all those involved. If, when we are in some sort of steady state, we are able to influence our food and drink providers to diversify to cater for a broader customer base then brilliant. But I recognise that can’t be a focus today.

    Make be we could just have burgers kept in warm water with tasteless onions, a stale roll and cut out all the crap. Never hurt me back in the day.

    Good point. We could just go back to the plague as well... That was proper, real, tough London then. Not a nouveau burger stand or patiserie shop in sight. Didn't even have football then to argue about... just corrupt bear baiting. The good old days...
