Hugo’s Greengrocer Deli

73 North Street, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 1ES

A Greengrocers opening in the heart of Bristol supplying fresh fruit and vegetables almost entirely from a 15-mile Radius, the most local greengrocer in Bristol.

Hugo’s aims to keep locality and quality at its centre, not margins and prices. The shop will use 6 key suppliers, so we will always clearly display the supply chain from the soil and grower to how it has ended up in the tray the customer is considering. This transparency allows our shopper complete trust in the fact that what they are eating is from a sustainable source, local and either organic or non-organic.

In addition to trust in the produce, Hugo’s local aims to serve a variety of healthy extras, such as coffee roasted Bristol, Fresh Pasta made less than 200 metres away and great pro-biotic products like Kefir and other exciting items.

The Beaufort (veg)

1 Beaufort West, London Road, Bath BA1 6QB

An award-winning Bath restaurant is set to reopen next month – but it will only serve vegan and vegetarian dishes.

The Beaufort on London Road closed earlier this year after the owner decided to re-brand the restaurant by only serving a plant-based cuisine. A notice posted on the website for The Beaufort reads: “We are currently undergoing a transitional period and we will be reopening as an exciting new vegetarian and vegan restaurant in October.”

Robbie Tack, owner of The Beaufort, said: “I am a plant-based lover and our head chef is too, so it makes sense. “There aren’t many vegetarian restaurants in Bath but more people are choosing to follow a plant-based diet or are cutting down on meat.”

He had hoped the new restaurant would open this month but says it will now open its doors to customers in November.

Mr Tack follows a plant-based diet himself and hopes the new restaurant will give vegans and vegetarians in the city more choice when eating out.

He said: “There aren’t many places in Bath which just offer vegan or vegetarian food and most of them aren’t open past 7pm. “In restaurants, there aren’t many options [for vegetarians or vegans] and they’re normally just something like a risotto.” But Mr Tack hopes to change this, saying: “There will be a wide range of food which will have lots of flavours. “There will be a bit of everything really, but dishes with lots of flavours, spices and just wholesome meals.” bathchronicle

Chance & Counters

20 Christmas Steps, Bristol BS1 5BS

Chance & Counters is Bristol’s first board gaming café, opened in May 2016. It is a space for board gamers of all ages and abilities to enjoy, whether you’re a casual player or a seasoned strategist. As well as fantastic games we also serve amazing food and drink, ranging from locally-sourced ales and ciders to quality snacks and light meals.

It’s that time of year. The time for… a new menu! You can look forward to loads more choice for vegans (take it from a meat-eater, it’s gonna be tasty and ethical) virtually no gluten, and a worldwide spread of influences. We’ve got dishes from Africa, Central America, India… even Kentucky. I know, right? Tom, our dear and wonderful Kitchen Manager has been busy. And we’re excited to share it with you.

Sooo many vegan options on the new menu. 3 out of 5 wraps is impressive! Just shows how easy it is to eat out as a vegan! beki.bee


Tailored Jackets

I’m just a one man operation trying to make it in the street food world. Perpetuating stereotypes I hail from Dublin originally. Casually trading on St Nicks market on Tuesdays and sometimes Fridays, 11-2.30pm. I think there’s a gap in the market for someone doing a baked potato with a bit of love. Most places they’re either undercooked or cooked and then reheated in the microwave before service.

I lightly oil and salt my spuds and cook them in a Faux victorian potato oven to get them crispy. My smokey baked beans are vegan and have ingredients such as smoked paprika and liquid smoke to give them that distinct flavour. My vegan chilli has pretty much all the ingredients under the sun to give it that depth of flavour but the stand out ones are dark chocolate, lime juice, coffee granules, liquid smoke and treacle along with pinto, cannellini and kidneys beans with smoked paprika, cumin, coriander and chilli powder and a fair few more. You also have the option of adding my homemade guacamole to the chilli which has gone down well.

Casa Mexicana

29 – 31 Zetland Rd, Bristol BS6 7Ah

We’ve been in operation on Zetland Road since 1986, and are proud to have remained independent and family-run. Here at Casa Mexicana we go beyond standard street food fare and offer a more authentic taste of Mexico in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We use only the finest fresh ingredients, organic herbs and vegetables, all cooked in the finest Mexican tradition. Along the way, we have been recognised as the best Mexican restaurant in Bristol and one of the best in the UK by The Guardian, The Independent and The Sunday Times, but our focus has always been on the satisfaction of our customers and offering a real experience.

We have a fully stocked bar of beers, wines and sangria, not to mention a wide selection of tequila and cocktails. So whether you are looking for dinner, a cheeky churros or just popping in for a margarita, come and see what we can do for you!

Our vegan menu as it currently appears is attached. I know for a fact we have one vegan friendly wine but have not been able to confirm all of them. We also have a couple of vegan desserts available on rotation so when we update the menu with this extra info I’ll send a new one over.
