The Grilled Mushroom & Cheeze Muffin, which along with the other new menu items is available now, features a toasted muffin filled with vegan cheese, mushrooms, rocket, and ketchup.

The Chocolate & Banana Vegan Protein Shake, which is made from banana, dates, cacao and hemp, has 12g of organic vanilla protein powder.

A lower-carb option is the Paleo Plant Box with grilled aubergine, which contains 300 calories, and features ‘grilled aubergine with sumac onions, zhoug, and the best of British roasted summer vegetables’.

For dessert, the cookie, branded a ‘poshnob’ by the chain for being like a ‘posh hobnob’ biscuit is made from organic oats, maple syrup, pecans, and sultanas.
