1. Guildhall Bar & Kitchen


Located at Gloucester’s leading live music venue, the Guildhall Bar & Kitchen is a great place to visit for a spot to eat whilst in the city – and with a dedicated vegan menu, it’s perfect for plant-based diners.

Light lunches encompass sandwiches, toasties, and jacket potatoes with fillings such as humous and olive tapenade; vegan cheese and tomato; and pan-fried mushrooms. For main meals, tempting choices include Homemade Falafel with onion rings, pitta bread, and red pepper dip; and a Seasonal Vegan Pâté made from roasted pepper, butternut squash and lentils, served with homemade chutney, oat cake and salad.

For the final touch add a side dish such as Cajun chips, cheesy chips, olives, falafel or green chutney. What’s more as each dish is made fresh to order, the majority of items on the main menu can be changed into vegan alternatives at a customer’s request.
