Falafel King, Cheltenham

As the name suggests, Falafel King serves falafel that's fit for a, well, King! This little High Street gem, serves Falafel any way you can imagine, whether you like it in burger form or a wrap, on its own or with a side of salad. It's not just falafel either; their baked potatoes are fabulous and so too is the Tabbouleh salad, not to mention there's a full salad bar too. Oh, and the food here is so good, even Bill Bailey used it as a pit stop during his recent trip to Cheltenham to perform!

Not Just Juice

Don't let its gym-based location fool you; this foodie haven is worth a visit even if you haven't worked up a sweat first. The menu is 100% vegetarian / vegan and also has a fabulous range of raw food options too. Their pasties, turkish delight tiffin and well pretty much everything is worth a try, and if you double check on their Facebook page, they also regularly host a pop-up sushi bar on a Friday.

Vinnie's Eatery

A clean eating, vegan haven, Vinnie's is run by none other than Vincenzo (Vinnie) Mangone and his husband Louis. Vinnie's passion for plant-based foods was developed as he trained under renowned chef Chantale Roy, and is reflected in the choice of breakfast, lunch, dinner and of course cakes and desserts!

The Coconut Tree

For an exceptional, vegetarian or vegan meal, Sri Lankan restaurant The Coconut Tree is a must. Don't expect a napkin - you'll get a paper towel - but what this place lacks in refined dining, it more than makes up for in flavour, choice and speed. The deep fried potato 'pringle' - a spiralised potato, deep fried on a stick - is fabulous and really tasty, while the Dahl's, cashew and pea curry and pineapple are all fab too. The brilliant thing about this restaurant is that they plates are small and cheap, so you don't have to stick with just one dish, you can have lots!

While some of these restaurants are 100% vegetarian / vegan, some do serve animal derived products in some of their dishes. In all cases, their vegan and vegetarian dishes are clearly labelled, and all are happy to guarantee an environment free of meat and animal products for the preparation of their vegan and veggie dishes.
