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
