Features: 7 best restaurants in Bristol for vegans

Written in association with PETA, May 23, 2016

Plant-based eating is on the rise: one in eight British adults now identify as a vegetarian or vegan, according to recent research by Mintel.

With benefits that include a lower risk of developing cancer, better skin, a slimmer physique and a clearer conscience, it’s easy to see why more and more people are making the switch. 

And when it comes to eating vegan, Bristolians are spoilt for choice – from classy cuisine to juicy burgers, the local vegan scene doesn’t disappoint.

Here are seven of PETA‘s top places to enjoy delicious animal-friendly fare in Bristol:


Maitreya Social, Easton

Presenting an inventive take on vegetarian food, Maitreya is famous for its high-class delicacies. With a relaxed atmosphere and beautifully prepared dishes, this reasonably priced restaurant is a local favourite.
