I’m not a Vegan or Vegetarian but decided to try something off their Vegan menu. What an amazing Vegan burger B12 with delicious sides I’ve just consumed. What an amazing menu!

Description
The Pine Marten in East Lothian has the warmth and character of a pub, and the kind of food you'd expect to find in a restaurant. We also offer modern ensuite lodge accommodation. Stay with us and discover historic Dunbar, a major fortress in the Middle Ages, and the birthplace of pioneering conservationist John Muir. Non-residents are welcome to join us for breakfast as well. There's a meal for everyone on our comprehensive menu. Get creative and craft your own sharer platter by mixing and matching starters. Whet your appetite for the main event: rotisserie chicken. Our chickens are Red Tractor farm assured, and roasted right in front of our customers every day. The smell alone is divine. The crispy skin coupled with succulent meat is sublime. Rotisserie chicken is the bedrock of the menu, but we offer plenty of alternatives. Classic mains are perfect for those days when you crave a hearty meal but there's more to us than meat; vegetarians will also find plenty of choice on our menu.
