Are you looking for the perfect vegan escape? As well as being a great cultural city, steeped in history, Bath offers an array of vegan cafés and restaurants for you to indulge in.
1 Beaufort West, London Road | nourishbath.co.uk
For Bath’s latest plant-based offering, take a trip about a mile from the centre of the city to Nourish.
As well as the bonus that you can eat everything on the menu, the options are far from boring, with starters such as enoki mushrooms with tofu and ginger Chinese spring rolls and falafel croquettes, and mains walnut, red pepper and cashew lasagne, Arborio & black venus risotto or mushroom and ale pie.
Plus there are great options for the kids, too.

Popular coffee shop and cafe Cascara has reopened as a stylish new plant-based cafe.
Its menu is packed with delicious items such as their incredibly popular blueberry-filled croissants and a selection of freshly baked goods like the delectable Bakewells from Relish Vegan caters.
If you’re heading there for a bite to eat be sure to try the Kimchi and Cheeze toastie, smokey beans with freshly toasted bread or their trio of dips served with a selection of bread that’s perfect for sharing with friends.
The Green Rocket Café
1 Pierrepont St | thegreenrocket.co.uk
This vegetarian café is a wonderful choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just a juice and piece of cake.
The menu changes seasonally, but for breakfast you can find dishes such as mashed avocado and bloody Mary salsa on sourdough toast or mixed mushrooms and spinach with cashew crumbs.
Lunch offers tempeh ceasar salad, mushroom, sundried tomato and basil rice burger, or General Tso’s broccoli and tofu stir-fry with jasmine rice.
The evening menu offers King Oyster mushroom scallops, Vietnamese coconut curry bowl or smoked mushroom, chestnut and sage sausages.
Finish off with a vegan cheeseboard, apple, berry and lavender crumble or sticky toffee pudding.

If you’re in Bath for a celebration or special occasion, treat yourself by booking a table at plant-based bistro Oak.
It’s not the cheapest of Bath’s vegan eateries, with the 2-course set menu coming in at £27.90, but the food is exquisite and has won many awards!
Think gourmet vegan dining with dishes such as parsnip and hazelnut veloute with hazelnut tortellini for starter, mushroom tart with celeriac or butternut squash terrine with pine nut risotto for mains, and we thoroughly recommend the chocolate and coffee light espresso parfait with a bar of chocolate ganache for dessert.
You’ll feel like you’ve experienced something very special and unique by the end of the meal. A slightly more budget-friendly option is to opt for the lunch menu. The choice is more limited, but two courses comes in at £17.90.
Sweet Little Things
6 Lower Borough Walls, Bath BA1 1UQ | www.facebook.com/SLTbath
Whilst not a strictly vegan eatery, Instagrammable tea room Sweet Little Things is well worth a visit as it boasts a huge vegan menu filled with everything from savoury buddha bowls to milkshakes and a mouth-watering selection of vegan cakes and bakes.
The vast majority of the non-vegan options can also be made vegan, including the cream tea. Fans of flowers and the colour pink will love the beautiful decor too!
Stock up on supplies
If you’re looking for some vegan treats to get you through your journey home, or need supplies for when you get back, head to Harvest on Walcot Street. Packed with everything you could possibly need, the deli also does some great wraps for lunch.
Take a class
If you’re in Bath for the weekend, you might want to take a break from sightseeing and try a class at Demuths Cookery School.
