Vegans and foodies rejoice: there’s a brand new vegan pop-up restaurant in Peterborough that’s making quite the name for itself. Resist! Vegan Kitchen appears at The Ostrich Inn (17 North Street) on selected days, and is already proving a big hit with local residents.

Resist! started when Peterborough local Gareth Ellison’s solution to feeding hungry gig goers went down so well that he became inspired to take the idea to the next level.

Resist! Vegan Kitchen is run by Gareth with the help of another Peterborough local, Lynn . As well as their in-house set up, they provide the food for “Battle Lines” – a monthly live art head to head- and cater for weddings, events and a range of fundraisers.

Vegan menu 

Despite having purely plant-based menu, Resist! aren’t trying to create an environment that only vegans are welcome in; their food has been enjoyed by people with a varied range of diets and tastes, and their Doner Kebab has proved to be a massive hit across the board.

Other strong performers from the current menu are the Slow Cooked Sticky BBQ Ribs (with Sugar Cane ‘Bone’) and Pulled Jackfruit, with the menu set to expand and adapt to customer feedback.


Resist! has made its home at The Ostrich Inn – which supports local music and art as well as many of Resist!’s own events. The vegan eatery actively promotes Peterborough music events, with recent performers including Billy Pettinger aka Billy the Kid (Canada), Andrew Paley (Chicago) and Norwich’s Ducking Punches (Dan Allen of Ducking Punches also designed the Resist! logo).

Independent vegan restaurants 

Resist! Vegan Kitchen joins a growing club of independent vegan restaurants and pop ups across the UK that include Beelzebab in Brighton, V Revolution in Manchester and Temple Of Seitan in Hackney, which all look set to enjoy a great 2018 as the vegan diet heads further into the mainstream. For those looking to support independent businesses that makes their food fresh, tasty and cruelty free, Resist! should be next on your list of “must tries” in Peterborough.

Resist! can be found on select dates at The Ostrich Inn, 17 North Street, Peterborough. For more information, head to https://www.facebook.com/resistvegankitchen/.
