As of 2019, almost one third, 33.5%, of the British population was either cutting down or cutting out meat according to Waitrose Food and Drink Report 2018-2019.

Many of those have changed their eating habits within the last 5 years, whether due to health, environmental or animal welfare concerns.

It is, therefore, no surprise that we’re seeing increasing numbers of vegan options on menus and plenty of fully vegan restaurants popping up all over the place.

And plenty of those are in the Midlands!
