Bristol is surprisingly vegan-friendly - Media Credit:

An article in The Bristol Post has claimed the city is fast becoming the most vegan-friendly in the UK.

According to the article, the city offers a range of ways to enjoy an animal-free lifestyle, with its plant-based eateries, vegan hairdressers, and a festival.

The piece states: “It may come as a surprise to some to learn that Bristol is fast becoming one of the best vegan cities in the country.

“In recent data from holiday lettings company Holidu, Bristol has been named the fourth most vegan-friendly city in the UK, behind Manchester, Edinburgh, and Leicester.”

Eating out

According to the paper: “Bristol has more than its fair share of vegan-only food establishments, with more and more other non-vegan restaurants willing to create dishes to suit customer needs.”

It lists vegan eateries Café Kino, Earthcake, Vx, the Spotless Leopard van, and Matter in Fishponds as worthy of a visit, adding: “As well as these dedicated vegan eateries, other non-vegan restaurants are beginning to listen to their customers who prefer not to eat animal products, and now offer at least a handful of vegan options.”

Vegan support

The article also lists a number of outlets vegans can visit, with shops, and a cruelty-free hairdresser topping the bill.

Campaigners are also well-supported in the city, as it is the home of Viva! – a vegan charity that ‘aims to support vegans across the country with their lifestyle choice’.

Last but not least, the city offers a reasonably proposition in the form of its vegan MPs.

The piece states: “And if that’s not enough for you, three out of four of Bristol’s MPs are vegan. Kerry McCarthy, Thangam Debonnaire, and Darren Jones are all committed to leaving animal products off their plates.”
