Group Recognises Hot Spot for Its Luxurious Cruelty-Free Fare

Bath – As the demand for delicious plant-based meals soars, restaurants are upping their game and vegan menus are popping up at fine-dining establishments across the UK. That’s why PETA has compiled a list of offering high-end animal-free options – and Bath is home to one of the fanciest: Acorn.

Chef Richard Buckley’s five-course taster menu includes dishes such as Wye Valley asparagus compressed with lemon and served on a bed of spring greens braised in porcini stock and whipped smoked almond curds. There’s also a fresh strawberry jelly with strawberry duxelle, fennel-bulb cream, thyme and anise meringue, and a prosecco surprise.

“Premier restaurateurs are cashing in on the growing demand for exquisite plant-based cuisine,” says PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “PETA is calling on caring people everywhere to ditch meat, eggs, and dairy ‘products’ and instead enjoy a gorgeous fine-dining experience at one of the UK’s most high-end establishments.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that in addition to sparing countless animals daily suffering and a terrifying death, choosing vegan meals is a great way to reduce the risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. These are just some of the reasons why millions of British people – including 20 per cent of 16- to 24-year-olds, according to Mintel – have chosen to ditch animal-derived foods.

Other restaurants on PETA’s list are located in Birmingham, Brighton, Leicester, Liverpool, London, and Londonderry and elsewhere in the UK.

PETA offers a free vegan starter kit, which can be ordered here. For more information, please visit
