After initially launching as a vegetarian restaurant, Vinnie’s Eatery are now 100% plant-based after ditching dairy and eggs from the menu.

Owner Vincenzo explained the reasons why they decided to go vegan, saying:

“For the first 4 weeks of opening we had eggs as an option on the breakfast menu, and cheese as an add-on to one dish on the supper menu. We decided however that it was not much of a step to take those off, and it means now we are a vegan eatery. We hosted the Gloucestershire Vegan Group on May 19th and it was a packed restaurant of like-minded individuals.”
