4 Vegan Friendly Restaurants in Wales
2 July 2020
When visiting somewhere new, if you have special dietary restrictions, it can be helpful to already have a few places in mind where you will be able to eat. The last thing you want to do is traipse around lots of different cafes and restaurants becoming more and more hungry.
Luckily, if you’re a vegan, options have become much more widely available in recent years, with most places able to at least veganise dishes if you ask.
However, if you’re heading to Wales and want to know where the best vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants are, then you’re in luck as we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourites! We have included some wonderful places to visit once it is safe to do so again, as well as a number that are offering contact-free collection or delivery options during the current COVID-19 crisis.
Glaslyn Ices Ice Cream Parlour & Pizzeria – Beddgelert
This award-winning ice cream parlour is often featured in Lonely Planet guides. It is also known for the incredible stone-baked pizzas served at the accompanying pizzeria.
The family-run business has been serving the people of Wales for 50 years. Their ingredients are fresh and usually locally sourced, including Snowdonia mushrooms from the Mushroom Garden.
No many things are better than a freshly baked pizza. But if you do fancy something different, they also serve homemade paninis, coffees, and cakes.
They cater to vegan and dairy-free diets, and their pizzas can be made gluten-free, so everybody can enjoy eating together.
During the COVID-19 crisis, they are offering a contact-free collection and delivery service locally, with payments being taken online.
The Anglesey Arms – Menai Bridge
The menu at the Anglesey Arms is extensive, with lots of fantastic options for people with all dietary needs. Including a generous and imaginative range of options for vegans and plenty of gluten-free options to choose from too.
From butternut squash and chickpea burgers with melted vegan cheese and avocado to pumpkin and sage tortellini, there are fantastic options available.
They are currently closed but will be reopening once it is safe to do so. They are offering a range of gift vouchers to buy online and redeem in the future.
Mother Nature – Cardiff
This brand new venture in Cardiff serves innovative vegan food and drinks, and only opened its doors on the 5th of February. But it already had a loyal fanbase by the time it had to temporarily shut its doors due to the current pandemic.
The cafe serves food that is 100% vegan, and the menu features everything from a vegan full English breakfast and pancake stacks to vegan Philly cheesesteak sandwiches with homemade double-dipped chips.
The cafe is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy veganised versions of their favourite dishes. It’s clear that the menu and cafe itself are a labour of love. If you’re planning on visiting Cardiff once it is safe to travel again, we highly recommend popping in!
The Greenery Kitchen – Cardiff
Another wonderful entirely plant-based eatery, also located in Cardiff, is the Greenery Kitchen. They serve a menu of seasonal and locally inspired dishes, focusing on lunch. From soup to soul bowls and even vegan burgers, there’s something delicious for everyone.
They are currently available on Uber Eats if you are local to Cardiff. So you can still get your vegan fix if your fridge is looking a little bare.
Their website also features a number of recipes, which is perfect if you’re finding yourself lacking inspiration and wanting to try something new!
We hope this has given you some inspiration for some wonderful vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants in Wales to visit in the future. We hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe. And we look forward to welcoming you all back to our leisure parks soon.
