This is a great little restaurant, tucked away near the river in Sowerby with great ambience and friendly staff. It outshines the area and gives hope that things are on the up for this Northern Milltown. The dishes are all vegan and range from huge seasonal dishes like aparagaus and new potato salad to baked plantains with spicy mango salsa. The puddings are great, really traditional and everything is prepared fresh in the open kitchen. The wine is organic too, but reasonable so a three course meal for two plus wine is just under £45 - splendid.

You don’t travel 650 miles from Surrey for nothing! We have stayed at the cottage on many occasions and will repeatedly return to savour the delights of exceptional accommodation in an idyllic setting.
We cannot speak too highly of the Taigh a’ Bhraion experience, try it for yourselves, especially in the winter, it's cosy and warm and very beautiful outside.

Its originality of recipes and high ingredient quality mark it out from the rest. The wonderful informal Bistro atmosphere enables one to enjoy a meal in comfort and quiet if necesary. It also has some good bottled beers.
It is on Penny Street; slap bang in the centre of Lancaster's pedestrian zone; 10 minutes walk from the station or the Duke's Theatre.
Rasa vegetarian restaurant in Stoke Newington is great - delicious variety of interesting Keralan dishes and all completely vegetarian. For carnivores, there's a non-veggie version opposite.

Tucked away in a converted church near Hammersmith tube, this is the best British veggie restaurant we've found. Particularly fantastic are the wild food menus, which include everything from nettles and wild mushrooms to strange salad ingredients and inventive elderflower puddings. It's pretty good value for top-notch food and even has an original mural covering one wall!
Simply the place to get the most fantastic fresh fish and seafood, Malliag is a proper fishing port rather than a tourist destination. Most people arrive there and stay only briefly on their way to Skye, Rhum or Knoydart but the excellence of the food, served in a harbourside setting, is such that it is worth organising an overnight stop on your way to these places. The service is helpful, friendly and unpretentious and the helpings more than generous.
Right on the harbour near the ferry terminal.
Not far along the coast road from Lynton you’ll find a signpost for Hunters Inn, which as well as being a pub-restaurant and place of accommodation, is also a beauty spot near the bottom of the alarmingly steep and deep Heddon Valley.
The walks in this area are spectacular, whether you follow the river path down to the sea or climb the cliff paths which cut narrow tracks along steep, heather-covered inclines.
This is a truly beautiful place to spend some time, just make sure that your car brakes are in good working order before you make the journey.
Take the coast road from Lynton towards Ilfracombe. Watch for the signposted road for Hunters Inn.
Several kilometers of unspoilt golden sand. Stunning views out into the Atlantic and up to the Mountains of Harris. You'd be unlucky to bump into anyone else. Can get windy - bring your kite!

As a regular visitor to Inverness, for me this is the best restaurant in town with an exciting mix of European/Scottish food. The stylish interior and warm welcome everyone receives make it a must.

A hidden gem in Halifax - freshly cooked veggie & vegan food. North African dishes seem to be a speciality, and there are wonderfully presented Bento boxes on Fridays. The soya lattes, fresh juices and imaginative salads are delicious.

Varied veggie and vegan menu - inspired by flavours from around the world. The tapas is excellent, the veggie breakfast is tasty and very filling and the cakes are delicious. We enjoy the leisurely atmosphere - you are not rushed to finish and move on. We can't wait to go back.

Delicious, freshly prepared food using wholesome ingredients. A really friendly and welcoming atmosphere. It is always hard to choose what to have as it all looks so inviting. The Bannoffi Pie is to die for! I challenge you to eat a whole one!

Simply the best veggie restaurant that I have ever visited. Reading the menu is part of the pleasure - it has a language all of its own, e.g. Bengal Babs -Tandoori spice loaded halloumi kebab, served with smoked almond custard risotto, tamarind tang, pink onion and green mango sas, and podi dust tomatoes; Cigarillo Mejoolie - Deep-fried parchment pastry crammed with cardamon mejool date and pistachio lemon mince, cinnamon dust, fennel seed sugar, served with pomegranate bead, orange and grapefruit fillets and a mint tisane granita. The flavours and textures are divine. The staff are efficient and friendly and the restaurant also caters for vegans and those who need a gluten free diet. I visit regularly and am never disappointed.

If you come to Leicester, you can't leave without having a curry, and if you're veggie, you can't leave without visiting Bobby's. All you can eat buffet downstairs, a la carte upstairs, and a great snacks and sweets counter too. I could eat the Paneer Shashlick and Lemon rice every day and never get bored.
Bobby's, Belgrave Road, Leicester
Fab veggie all you can eat buffet. Friendly staff, amazing food and great ambience. They have a novel means of ensuring the menu is always fresh and exciting - the first group to book a table get to pick the food for the evening. Hitchcocks has been a favourite haunt of ours for many years, and I've eaten everything from Nepali to Italian, Sri Lankan to Mexican - all delicious. And the deserts are to die for...

It's a favourite haunt. It does a really nice buffet with a good variety. Plenty of nice vegetables. Polite and pleasant staff. The 'meat' dishes look and taste authentic. We took some devoted-meat-eating friends there a few months back and bundled them in without their seeing the word 'vegan' on the outside. They didn't believe us when we confessed they'd just heartily enjoyed a vegan meal!! Great! A recommended evening would be to go there for the main and then over Soho Square to Soho Street and Govinda's for desert (very yummy!), though the latter closes at 8pm.
Old Compton Street, Soho.
