There's nothing worse than trawling around the internet trying to find somewhere to stay that can provide a decent veggie breakfast, or wandering around a town hungry unable to find something to eat, so hows about some ideas for purely veg*n or veg*n friendly places? And perhaps some 'where to avoid' places too.

As Firinne mentioned Glastonbury here are a couple.....

Rainbow's End - Veggie & Vegan meals and cakes, gluten free stuff etc.....Very very nice food, counter service so food that should be isn't always very hot. Only open from about 11am - 4pm.

Cafe Galetea - Veggie restuarant. Open lunchtimes and most evenings. Personally I wouldn't recommend this if you're actually hungry. Even the simplest of food can take over an hour to make it to your table and most of the staff don't give a shit. Bit seedy too.
[/URL]
One to Avoid Blue Note Cafe - veggie fast food type cafe on the high street. Used to do average - good burgers n chips, breakfasts etc then was taken over by a complete dick (also called Dick!) who employs very very young staff and doesn't teach them their job. Several times had untoasted toast, and the worst (on more than one occassion) had breakfast with undercooked and overcooked eggs. One time the white was so not cooked you could scoop it up with a spoon! :vomit: Also met with BAD attitude when politely complaining about this.

WELLS

[U]Ask (http://www.glastonburybackpackers.com/) - Only recently discovered this Italian chain but I'm completely in love! There are no veggie symbols on their menus and I imagine the parmesan is not veggie, but they do have a huge range of non-meatiness and the food is of excellent quality. As everything's cooked fresh I imagine that the chef's would be more than willing to accept awkward requests........

Will add more later......

Fantastic, thanks for those!

Here's one for Plymouth ...

Veggie Perrins cruelty free restauraunt, Mayflower Street, Plymouth.
Open from midday-2pm for lunch and 6pm to 10pm for dinner (closed Sundays)

Serves a really good range of Gujerati food, no ingredients that cause harm to animals are used - not even eggs. It's a family run restauraunt, with a really nice atmosphere, really reasonable prices (you can get a lunch buffet for £2!) and they even have lots of yummy desserts (hazelnut ice cream, yummmmm!)

They do take away too :)

Demuths Vegetarian Restaurant Bath (http://www.demuths.co.uk/) This is an absolutely fantastic place. Me n Dok were taken here by some friends on a boiling hot evening. It was such a chilled, friendly place. The food was fantastic and the drinks were delightfully different. I'd highly recommend Demuths for those special occassions it's clean and classy!

If any of you's were to find yourself in Bristol, then check out the Vegan Bristol (http://www.veganbristol.makessense.co.uk) for info on where to eat, shop, and stay etc. ;)

If you know of somewhere that should be in the next Vegan Guide to Bristol let me know.

Vegan Thai food place, off soho square, London. It used to be a bit of a favourite of mine when I lived down that way .. dead cheap buffet and take away buffet lunch. Mmmmmmmm delicious, almost frighteningly in relation to some of the food looking all a bit to realistically meat but it is gluten :0) Worth a visit if you ever get to London :0)

Another was Heaven and Earth in Hastings, where I lived till recently. It is on the sea front and serves lovely vegan and veggie food, and cakes to die for hehehe!! Mind you was under threat of closure, so I am not sure if it is still there.

Some good friends have just started a vegan B an B in Scotland but I am waiting for a link to their new website, so when I get it I will post it for those looking for a vegan place to stay :0)

I am gunna try a place in Carlise, the biggest town near us or should I say city, called the source which serves organic vegan and veggies stuff, beers, and also live music. I tried recently with some friends but it was closed for refurbishment. Will let you know about that place too :0)

Yeah the George is good in Brighton, again scrummy vegan options :0)

Lancaster has a great vegetarian restaurant called 'The Whale Tail Cafe'. Many of the menu standards are vegan and they normally have a vegan special on to. On Fridays there is always an organic option. All beers, wines and ciders are organic.
Also have a fabulous vegan chocolate cake. Yummy:broc:

Fullers (as in the ale brewers) own a fair few places around the country. Along with their wide range of ale (not the best brewery in the world and the ale probably isnt vegetarian) they do serve really good food with over half the menu vegetarian! They specialise in their pies which are absolutely HUGE!! they do pies such as sweet potato and goats cheese. and erm asparagus and cheesee stuff and i forget the rest but theres loads and its yummy!:broc:

Theres a massive fullers place in birmingham, The Ale and Pie or something its called... just off new street. It was an old Lloyds bank and is in the style of an old victorian estate house with 2 flights of stairs, with stereotypical ballustrades to slide down ;), leading up either side to a second floor mezzanine platform. Central square shaped bar with seating completely surrounding it.

Me and Emma also saw one in London the other day on the way from Euston station walking towards hyde park direction (dont know london too well!). The building looked equaly as impressive :cool: Check it out !! especially if your into the ale too ;)

El Piano inYork is my favourite veggie/vegan cafe. Open 7 days a week, til late most days. http://www.elpiano.co.uk/ it is near the Minster. Just round the corner is a more upmarket veggie restuarant called Vanilla Black, but have never eaten in that one so can't comment on it.

Leeds - the is a veggie Indian Restuarant just on the outskirts of the city centre called Hansa's. Only eaten there once so don't really want to comment too much, but has had lots of good reviews.

Hebden Bridge - a few places such as the Organic House, cafe with wholefood shop as well, plus the canalside cafe (next to the canal of course) which has vegan only menu on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - run as an omnivore cafe by different people on a Fri, Sat and Sun.

Sky Apple Cafe in Heaton, Newcastle. It's only small, but does really nice veggie and vegan food. I went one night with a friend and had a 3 course vegan meal, it was so yummy! Oh, and they don't sell alcohol, but you can bring your own if you wish :)

For central Nottingham try the Alley Cafe (not the easiest place to find) www.alleycafe.co.uk. All vegetarian/vegan menu, brilliant staff.

If in Beeston, try the Victoria Hotel right by the railway station. The menu there has a wide and equally varied omivore and vegetarian selection and one of the best beer selections in the area. Oh and please PM me if you're going there as it's my local.

If you're in central London, particularly the Oxford St./Charing Cross Rd area, try "Beatroot" on Berwick St. It's a veggie fast food place with loads of vegan options and a realy nice friendly atmosphere ("fast food" in the sense of "it's already cooked, they just need to serve it to you", not "burgers and chips"). They usually have about 6-8 salads and 6-8 hot dishes and the price is based on the size of the container you get, so you can have lots of just one thing or smaller quantieties of everything in your box and it'll be the same price. They also do lots of cakes etc - many of them vegan.

In Bethnal Green (East London): "Wild Cherry" on Globe Rd and the "Gallery Cafe" on Old Ford Rd are both excellent. They are both run by Buddists, members of "Friends of the Western Buddist Order" (I think I have the name right). Both do have an eintirely veggie menu with lots of vegan options - including cakes and desserts. I was particularly impressed when I got a take-away from Wild Cherry recently, that they are obviously trying to make their take-away packaging as environmentally-friendly as possible - for example, the disposable cutlery was wooden, not plastic.

Fern Tor B&B in North Devon is fantastic! Cliff and Jane who run it cater for vegans and veggies, and have loads of rescued animals (hens, goats, pig, rabbits etc). They do evening meals to die for!! Perfect for anyone, but so cool for children! I remember that they do a deal if people want to help them then they can stay at a reduced rate. Worth an e-mail, they are lovely people!

I'd back up on Henderson's (http://www.hendersonsofedinburgh.co.uk/) in Edinburgh - fabulous place. And Scotland is really quite difficult for veggies wanting to eat out.

Personal recommendations are well worth noting because there's considerable bandwagon jumping onto web-based and other lists by so-called veggie / vegan-friendly establishments which turn out to be hardly, if any different from any other eating place (and often smell most horribly of meat and fish).

In the UK any place which doesn't reliably provide a couple of good veggie alternatives really deserves to go out of business.

Theres two veggy resturants in Bournemouth

Wessex Tales - Other than a couple of deserts the whole menu is Vegan. Went here recently and the food was really really yummy. The lady who runs it is really friendly and fun too :) Has a good variety of starters, main courses and deserts..perfect for going out for an evening meal.

Tudor Corner House,
20 Ashley Road,
Boscombe,
Bournemouth 01202 309869


The Salad Centre - Not as good as Wessex Tales in my oppinion but the food is ok. Vegetarian soups, salads, sandwiches, baked potato fillings and cakes. When I ordered Nut loaf there it wasn't very flavoursome and was made of too much bread and not enough nuts.

667 Christchurch Road
Boscombe
Bournemouth

01202 393673


I thought I'd also mention Bellini's in pembrokeshire. Its an italian resturant but its not actually vegetarian but has a few good vegetarian options. When I was vegan I phoned up and asked if there were any vegan options on the menu which there weren't but the main chef there is actually a vegan and so they made me something from scratch especially which I thought was really lovely of them and it was yummy too :)

Can I suggest a couple of places in Leicester.

Firstly for the cheapest pure veggie (milk only no eggs etc) or vegan curry I have ever had, I recommend Sahdar's on the Narborough Road, near the junction with Braunston Gate. The food is fantastic and Nudey and I never spend more than a tenner for starters, breads and a curry each. It is authentic Punjabi food made and served by the same family.

A slightly more expensive place to try is the very wonderful Hallie's http://www.hallirestaurant.com The food is fantastic (the dosas are recomended by everyone who tries them) and the service is lovely. The waiters made my friend a little birthday cake with a smiley face - it was so so sweet.

A few vegetarian/vegan eateries I've visited and like:

Cafe Pushkar: 424 Coldharbour Lane, Brixton SW9
The Juice Bar in Coldharbour Lane, Brixton (practically opposite Cafe Pushkar)
Both of these places are in the busy part of Coldharbour Lane near the Electric Avenue part of Brixton market. They're both vegetarian with some vegan dishes.

Tree-Top Cafe at the Monkey Sanctuary (http://www.monkeysanctuary.org/) near Looe in Cornwall. Purely vegetarian open-air (but covered) cafe built up on stilts. Lots of vegan options. Fresh produce comes by bicycle from nearby Keveral Farm. The cafe is not in the Monkey Sanctuary but just outside so you don't have to pay admission to go to the cafe.

Vegetarian/vegan B&B in South Wales/Black Mountains (near Hay-on-Wye):
Primrose Farm veggie B&B on a permaculture farm (http://www.organic-sacred-earth.co.uk/).
Jan makes amazing evening meals on request. Usually vegetarian, but they do vegan meals on request. Made from their own produce.

My daughter and I had a lovely lunch at The Beano at the Guildford Institute this week. Every weekday lunchtime from 12-2pm there's very reasonable vegetarian and vegan food available in a friendly atmosphere. It's not a restaurant as such, rather a room in the institute that is used during the week. Good nutritious homecooked food. Current prices are £4.25 for a main course, £5 for a main course and 1 salad, £5.75 for a main course and 2 salads. Very yummy!

Can anyone suggest a decent veggie eatery in south bucks, lived here long time and they are mostly pants, drives me mad, In Wycombe, where I work you've got noodles or um noodles, very nice but not all the time.They mostly look at you like you're stupid and offer you, yes, the dreaded MUSHROOM STROGANOFF, Bleh,

I live in North Wales, which like most places semi rural that i've visited means you need a crystal ball to find a decent varied vege menu. To be honest, unless I have to, I prefer to cook myself. There seems to be a distinct lack of imagination when it comes to pub food for us. If I eat out I want something different and special. I object to paying for something I can do easily and better myself. The friend I live with hates mushrooms, and so many times the only vege dish is something with funghi in.
I'll be off to Pontardawe festival in August, and thank goodness for the cafe there that does a decent vege breakfast for a reasonable price. A few years ago they had a good variety of food available on site, this has dwindled in recent years.
I went to a Tennis tournament last year in Liverpool. You would think being a sport event they'd encourage healthy eating. Not a bit, nothing but burgers, chips, dohnuts and icecream, and no vege burgers. All I could stomach was chips and they were aweful. If I go again I'll take my own food.
If anyone can reccomend anywhere in North East Wales, Cheshire and Wirral I would be grateful.

oh, years ago....1992 - 1997, up until I had my youngest son, Fergus. Then I moved to The Landing restaurant (over The Ark in St Martin's Square) in their joint venture with, what was, Environ.
I used to run the shop when the owners, Kevin & Vanessa, were on holiday, too. It was a lovely little job.....doing a bit of everything, working with a bunch of lovely folks, and I got to make loads of delicious cakes etc upstairs in the kitchen. I still have the recipes for Carrot cake, banana & walnut cake, date/apricot slice and a vegan one that you might like choc & orange cake (which btw was delicious) I haven't been in there for ages. I lost touch with the owners when they moved up to Yorkshire when V wanted to do teacher training. Someone told me the'd leased out the shop and had moved back down to Leicester. Good times:)

A new cafe in Glastonbury which I'm very happy about! Earth Fayre - our wholefood shop moved into the old Woolworths building this year and have opened a veggie cafe in the back. All food made on the premises, organic and lots of options for vegans & special diets. They make awesome GF pizzas!!

Whirler
17-07--2011, 11:51 AM
Well the above cafe has pretty much stopped doing a decent menu having lost, and not replaced all of their kitchen staff. Their menu is usually just a choice of soup or hotpot. But they do nice salads and other cold stuff and damn fine cakes still catering for all types of diets.

A few to add from Pembrokeshire - The Plantagenet in Tenby. A mixed menu of meat, fish and lots of veggie food. There was also an awareness of dietary requirements (they know what gluten is!!). The building is stunning and service was brilliant.

St David's - The Farmers Arms (http://www.farmersstdavids.co.uk/) which is a lovely pub and serves basic pub food (no real chips!) but they list food that's suitable for veggies, coeliacs & diabetics.

Laugharne - Portreeve's Tafarn. Stunningly good food and a quirky place - not a huge veggie menu but there are certainly options.

We have an extreme lack of veggie places in Shropshire (hunting country... blah) - but there is a lovely veggie place in Shrewsbury called Good Life (http://www.happycow.net/reviews.php?id=661). Lovely traditional-style healthy wholefood, nice homely atmosphere, good prices and really lovely staff. We always pop in and get a great seat upstairs. :)

St David's - The Farmers Arms (http://www.farmersstdavids.co.uk/) which is a lovely pub and serves basic pub food (no real chips!) but they list food that's suitable for veggies, coeliacs & diabetics.

:eek: Shhhhhhhhh... don't tell everyone! We get enough Grockles down here as it is ;) :p

I've just stumbled on The Coven (http://www.thecoven.org.uk/)in Wigan (too far for me:() which does veggie, vegan, raw and coeliac. I very, very, very much would like to try it out. If anyone lives near there, please test it for me? :D

For Oxford:

The Gardener's Arms (http://www.thegarden-oxford.co.uk/)
All vegetarian with a decent selection of vegan dishes too. I especially recommend the mushroom pie, thali plater and burgers with chili sauce.


The Royal Blenheim (http://www.royalblenheim.co.uk/)
This one is not exclusively veggie but deserves a mention as it is a pub very friendly to veggies and vegans. Half of the menu is veggie with a couple of dishes either vegan or available as a vegan option. The vegan chili is lovely. They also have an excellent selection of ales and yummy Weston's cider. :moyne: The staff are knowledgeable about which drinks are suitable for vegans.

Most of my favourite London places have already been mentioned about from Tibits (http://www.tibits.co.uk/e/) which is just off of Regent Street. It is all veggie with a big selection of vegan dishes. It is a buffet where they weigh your plate to calculate the cost. The food is always very fresh and tasty. Highly recommended!
