The 2024 menu also takes inclusivity to new heights with the introduction of the Everybody’s Plate menu range.

Everybody’s Plate features a wide variety of options that cater to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-friendly dietary requirements. Ingredients include whole foods, pulses and legumes, as well as fresh salads. Desserts can also be completely vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free.

Executive sous chef of culinary development, Karl Edmonds, has been driving the shift towards inclusive, healthy and delicious alternatives.

“In 2023 we saw great success with our vegan, vegetarian and gluten-friendly options in our lunch menus. Expanding this across our entire menu range is a bold move and we know our customers will be delighted,” Edmonds said.

Approximately 35 to 40 per cent of all menu items are now suitable for all allergens and dietary requirements. Dishes are free from nuts, dairy, egg, sesame and seafood, ensuring every guest can enjoy a safe and delicious dining experience.

“A significant amount of research and development has gone into creating this menu and we’re proud to launch options we think everyone will enjoy, whether they have dietary needs or not,” shared Edmonds.
