Wimbledon Tennis and Vegan food

Hi All
I went to see the Wimbledon tennis tournament for a day yesterday.
Unfortunately going around the food options there was absolutely nothing available that was vegan apart from strawberries in the entire ground. Very disappointing as they had made an effort to make a lot of vegetarian options, and there was a large international audience of course with many diets needing to be catered for.

I asked the catering manager and in 15 minutes the chef had made a very nice vegan ragout, salad and bread dish - huge. So a negative turned into a positive. Sometimes I don't ask at venues but I think I always will in future :).

Well done Rich, perhaps they'll consider adding some vegan options in the future (though sad to see they hadn't already).
