Food & Drink

More and more of us are choosing a vegan lifestyle, which is great fun in the kitchen, but can still be difficult when eating out, especially on holiday.

With over half a million people in the UK eating a plant-based diet, the trouble isn’t the lack of locations, it’s knowing where to look! Last minute rental property provider has put together its top picks of vegan friendly gems that might leave you pleasantly surprised… and hungry. It's not such a gamble eating vegan nowadays as it used to be. You're not likely to discover a bit of ham hidden in your vegan carbonara and if you still want a flutter you can always head to eSports Betting. (Just so you're still taking a bit of a gamble if you really want to follow this tangent to its inevitable conclusion!)

  1. Swindon

With a thriving vegan scene, Swindon is definitely worth a visit. If you’ve recently turned vegan you might have thought you’d never eat fish and chips again. However, Swindon is home to a unique fish and chip shop on Thames Avenue that offers a vegan night once a week, to cater to the growing vegan community. You’ll no longer have to give up your chippy favourites.

2. Devon

There is so much to see in Devon, but if you’d rather have a quiet night in you’re in luck as Chinese takeaway, The Imperial Garden, offers a vegan only menu. Offering plant-based alternatives to your favourite meaty classics you’ll find vegan chicken, duck and even squid made solely from veggies and nuts! Treat yourself to a duck chow mein – you won’t believe it’s vegan.


3. Cornwall

If you want to try something a bit more sophisticated, Cornwall is the place for you! Bustopher Jones restaurant in Truro offers a fine dining vegan experience. Here you can enjoy an amazing five course meal full of vegan delights. The delicious menu definitely proves that a plant-based diet is more than just eating carrots and hummus.


4. Bournemouth


Known for its beautiful beaches, Bournemouth is the perfect staycation for any vegan. Offering a wide range of vegan-friendly restaurants, you’ll be spoilt with choice. After a long day at the beach head to Lollipop Gelato LAB where you’ll find an amazing selection of dairy-free ice creams to choose from.
