Bandook Indian Kitchen

India's street food and roadside restaurant culture inspire Bandook's menu, which is stuffed full of fantastic veggie options. This includes a meat-free selection of chaats, small snack dishes that pack in big flavours, as well as curries, biryani and dosa. Their breakfast menu is also nearly all vegetarian, offering a mix of Indian twists on dishes like granola and a full English alongside parathas and uttapam. 

Dishes from The Coconut Tree

The Coconut Tree

For more street food-inspired fare, this time with Sri Lankan flavours, head to The Coconut Tree. Much of the menu is veggie and most of the veggie dishes are vegan, with a dedicated Roots menu showing off all the plant-based options in one place. The lively atmosphere, tropical 'cocotails' (non-alcoholic versions also available), and tapas-style sharer plates make it a great spot for meals out with friends and family.

Henry's Restaurant

For a special occasion, try the vegetarian tasting menu at Henry's Restaurant, which is every bit as imaginative as its counterpart for meat eaters. If you love the idea of refined seasonal food in a relaxed, humble setting, you're sure to love the Henry's experience. There's a green-minded ethos here too, with locally sourced ingredients and a zero-waste approach in the kitchen. 

Vegan pizza from Dough

Dough

If pizza is your favourite treat, look no further than Dough in The Corridor and Kingsmead Square. With a variety of different pizza doughs on offer (all of which are vegan, and with gluten-free options to boot), you'll be spoilt for choice. Sub mozzarella for their tasty vegan alternative and you can enjoy a plant-based version of the Italian classic.

The Mint Room

The ethos of Indian restaurant The Mint Room is that tradition and modernity should go hand in hand. Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, The Mint Room has a contemporary ambience and offers traditional Indian cuisine cooked and presented in an innovative and exciting way. Those dining on a sunny day can enjoy their meal on The Mint Room's stunning terrace.

The Mint Room has a generous offering of vegetarian dishes to enjoy inside the restaurant or order to take away.

Newton Farm Café 

Newton Farm Café is situated just ten minutes from Bath, in the picturesque village of Newton St Loe. The café is family-run, and a part of Newton Farm Foods, which incorporates a farm, award-winning farm shop and café.

Another fantastic option for vegetarians is one of Bath’s delicious independent bakeries. Bertinet Bakery offers a stunning range of artisan breads, sourdoughs, pastries and savouries. Make sure you give their famous almond croissants a try – the perfect quick and delicious breakfast option.

Yak Yeti Yak

Tucked in the basement of an eighteenth-century townhouse in the centre of Bath, Yak Yeti Yak was the first purely Nepalese restaurant to open in the UK. In accordance with the heavily plant-based diets of the people of Nepal, vegetarian and vegan food is given equal billing on the menu to the meat dishes, and you’ll find a wide variety of delicious vegetable dishes to whet your appetite.

If you’d like an authentic Nepalese experience, there is a cushioned area where you can sit on the floor to enjoy your meal, although there are tables and chairs for those who aren’t feeling so adventurous!

Phat Yaks

In December 2016, the owners of Yak Yeti Yak also opened Nepalese street food café Phat Yaks. Following the same ethos as their parent restaurant, Phat Yaks offers delicious vegetarian and vegetarian breakfast and lunch options which are great for on-the-go dining.

Giggling Squid

Giggling Squid opened its doors in Bath in January 2018, offering mouthwatering Thai fare in beautiful surrounds. With a dedicated vegetarian and vegan menu, there's plenty on offer for those looking to avoid a meaty dish. We're big fans of the Crispy Pak Maew to start – a delicious plant-based alternative to crispy squid – and a thick and creamy red vegetable curry or a flavoursome cashew nut stir fry as an appetising main course.
