Café Paradiso – Cork

I recently visited Ireland with my husband and was blown away by its beauty and the friendliness of everyone we met. We stayed in Cork and quickly discovered that Ireland is a nation of foodies who are lucky enough to have some incredibly tasty ingredients grown on their doorstep. We found that we structured our […]

The Canteen – Bristol

Despite its name, the Canteen in Bristol seems to be known better for its music than its food. This is a shame because they serve incredibly tasty dishes at outrageously low prices. There is a simple reason for this – the Canteen is ran by a cooperative and therefore there isn’t someone trying to make […]

Picture Restaurant – London

Picture Restaurant is a small modern-British establishment that serves wonderful food in a relaxed and toned-down atmosphere. Situated just behind the revamped central London BBC offices, it is often awash with BBC executives looking to finish their long day with a plate of something lovely, and do doubt; a glass of something bubbly. I recently […]

The Ethicurean – Bristol

I was a little apprehensive about going to the Ethicurean as I was worried it might not live up to the hype. Friends based in Newcastle have heard how good it is and managed to shoehorn it in to their holiday en route to Cornwall. Luckily for me I wasn’t at all disappointed. The drive […]

Copita – Soho

While you may have to queue to get a seat in this busy little tapas restaurant, it is totally worth the wait. Tapas for vegetarians can be a bit hit and miss. Sometimes there are some great choices and in other restaurants you are lumbered with olives and bread while meat eaters get stuck into […]

Panis – Newcastle

I have a love / hate relationship with shopping. It is one of those activities where I have to be in a good mood, hangover free, and feeling flush as well as slim. It is therefore quite a rare occasion when all of these things to be aligned. Mostly I trudge around the shops, look […]

Great places to eat in and around Hexham and Corbridge for vegetarians

As a vegetarian, there is nothing I love doing more than eating at vegetarian restaurants. Having a choice about what I want to eat is a delightful treat. However, like the majority of vegetarians, I am surrounded by friends and family that are meat-eaters. When I do go out to eat with my husband, friends […]

Grosvenor Arms – Chester

Down the road from the Duke of Westminster’s estate in Cheshire is the Grosvenor Arms. It is set in an imposing but decorative red brick building, indicative of the architecture belonging to most of the buildings owned by the Grosvenor family in that part of the world. While I quite like the building’s appearance, its […]

Pho Hanoi – Bristol

Pho Hanoi is an unassuming restaurant on the vibrant Gloucester Road in Bristol that serves beautiful Vietnamese dishes at incredibly low prices. I ordered crispy vegetarian spring rolls to start which had a surprising rich and curry-like flavoured filling. For my main course I had Pho Vegetarian. Out came a huge bowl of steaming broth […]

Burger Theory at the Golden Lion

Burgers are not what they used to be. 30 years ago, the humble burger was made of god-knows-what and could only be bought in Wimpy or McDonalds. Vegetarians didn’t get a look in. 20 years ago saw the rise of the veggie burger which meant that vegetarians, like our fellow meat-eaters, could eat a slice […]
