Vegan Places to Eat in the UK:
222 Veggie Vegan restaurant sells ONLY vegan food. The owners are vegan and have been for decades. Most of the staff are also vegan.
The restaurant has a vegan whole food menu currently comprising around 100 dishes. The 3 founders of the company are lifelong vegetarians but have become vegans in the last 20 years. They have all studied and experimented with vegan dietary styles including macrobiotic living and cleansing diets and one is a well known vegan chef in English vegan circles.
Their desire to spread the message about veganism and healthy lifestyle resulted in opening the doors of the 222 Veggie Vegan restaurant in West London England in 2005.
"We are committed to the healthy vegan lifestyle and to helping others on this healthy and peaceful way of living. We treat visitors to our restaurant as individuals and as friends and we always try to cater for any special needs including special dietary needs such as food intolerance, allergies, gluten/wheat-free diets etc." they inform us.
