Gloucestershire restaurant goes vegan

Veganism continues to grow in popularity across the UK with food outlets tailoring their offerings to exclude all animal related products and ingredients.

The latest Gloucestershire restaurant to follow this trend is The Wharf House, situated alongside the River Severn just outside Gloucester.

Customers travelling from far and wide will now have the opportunity to sample the all new dedicated vegan tasting menu alongside the existing tasting menu and vegetarian offering.

David Penny, commercial and technical director of The Wharf House said " We really wanted everyone to be able to come and share in the celebration of our success in gaining 2 AA Red Rosettes, and be one of the few restaurants to produce vegan and vegetarian tasting menus alongside existing traditional meat and fish-based options."

All three options include nine courses of delicious cuisine and are priced at £65 per person. For those with a smaller appetite, there is also a shorter six-course tasting menu in all three versions available at lunchtime.

All the tasting menus should be booked ahead to avoid disappointment and are available for booking Tuesday to Saturday lunchtimes and evenings.

Earlier this year figures from claimed there were now 3.5 million vegans in the UK, a market expected to grow and grow. Market researcher Mintel said last year the UK market for meat-free food was worth £572m, up from £539m just two years earlier. Retail sales are expected to rise to £658m by 2021. (See more:
