Veggie and vegan burgers are also available.
All skewers come with flatbread, salad and beetroot & raisin coleslaw, with gluten-free wraps available. Choices include Moroccan spiced lamb balls, chicken & chorizo, salmon & king prawn, halloumi & sweet potato, and a vegan turmeric sweet potato with peppers, courgettes & red onion.
