A pub near Romsey has launched a new green burger in a bid to rake in money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The burger, nicknamed the 'Green Warrior', will be sold at the Vine Inn, part of the Hungry Horse chain in Romsey Road, with prices starting from £7.49 and £1 of the cost going to Macmillan.

The brightly-coloured burger has been unveiled by Greene King and Hungry Horse as part of its partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support.

It features either a chicken or beef burger with a bun dyed green.

The limited-edition burger will be available to customers until Wednesday, September 30, or until stocks run out.

Managing director for destination food brands at Greene King, Andy Wilson, said: “It’s been a challenging year for Macmillan, which is experiencing a fundraising crisis due to COVID-19, so we hope the launch of our new green burger will help provide our guests in Ower with a fun way of helping to support the charity at a time of need.

“While it might look slightly unusual, the Greene Warrior is a delicious way to do your bit for a very important cause – with its eye-catching appearance, tasty chicken or beef patty and ‘Macmillan’ mac ‘n’ cheese filling, it’s guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser for local burger lovers. "We can’t wait to welcome our locals in to give it a try – your friends will be green with envy.”

Senior partnerships manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, Rachel Gascoigne, said: “Our partnership with Greene King is so successful and our sincere thanks go to their customers and team members.

"We are almost entirely reliant on the generosity of our partners and the public and are grateful to Vine Inn for their kind donation on every Greene Warrior burger and Mint-Millan dessert purchased in September.”

The Vine Inn will be offering a limited-edition Mint-Millan Sundae, featuring two scoops of mint choc chip and one scoop of vanilla flavour ice cream, with crushed chocolate mint balls, chocolate flavour sauce and topped with whipped cream.

The sundae starts at £4.49, with 20p from every sale going towards Macmillan.
