Vegan Eats: Best Vegan-Friendly Restaurants in Nottingham

by Laura Barns

7min read

Nottingham has a whole lot going for it than just men in tights. As well as Robin Hood, we have the East Midlands city to thank for running water, ibuprofen, traffic lights and MRI technology. Not bad, right?

With a young, student feel, it’s no surprise the city is home to a growing vegan and veggie population. Here’s our favourite vegan restaurants, cafes and bars in Nottingham. Don’t spot yours below? Let us know in the comments.

Annie’s Burger Shack

Where: 5 Broadway, NG1 1PR

This American-diner style spot is distinctly different to any other burger joint you’ve been to. Why? Because every single burger on the (pretty extensive) menu can be made either meaty, veggie or vegan. Our favourite – and it was a tough choice – has to be the Kogumaza – a burger slathered with peanut satay sauce, topped with crunchy onions, a pinch of coconut and fresh coriander. Oh, and don’t forget the curly fries, which are 100% the superior fry.

Oscar and Rosie’s

Where: 8 Stoney Street, NG1 1LH

Vegan pizza doesn’t always have the best reputation, but thanks to places like Oscar and Rosie’s, that tide is slowly turning. Their vegan menu is almost as big as their meat/veggie menu, meaning you won’t be stuck with just one choice. In fact, you’ll be totally spoilt – the options are creative and unique, right from the ‘vegan sham and pineapple’ to the ‘vegan cheat sweats’. The vegan wines and beers are clearly labelled too, if you’d like to make a night of it.

Cafe Roya

Where: 130 Wollaton Road, Beeston, NG9 2PE

The menu at this all-veggie (and vegan-friendly) cafe is as diverse as it is colourful, thanks to the founder’s heritage. From Spanish to Iranian, Gujurati to Persian, there are spices and influences from different spots on the globe, all working together to create a delicious, nutritious menu offering. Think salads and soups, Katsu curries and Samosa Chaat Pies, and get ready for a global culinary adventure, whilst working towards your 5-a-day.

No. 12

Where: 2-3 Eldon Chambers, Wheeler Gate, NG1 2NS

This beautiful restaurant is situated in the historic Eldon Chambers in the heart of the city centre and is a must for vegans and vegetarians in Nottingham. The menu consists of wholesome, hearty plates both big and small, with absolutely no falafel in sight. And the surroundings are as inviting and elegant as the menu. So if you like your salads with a side of sophistication, this is the place for you. There’s also the option to take home your favourite bottle of wine, too.

Adam’s Restaurant

Where: Stoney Street, NG1 1NG

Fancy a fine dining experience from a star-chef-in-the-making? The Adams Restaurant offers a unique dining experience for customers: serving contemporary cuisine, prepared, cooked, presented and served by culinary students to the highest standards, at a price which is affordable to all. Student chefs rustle up a feast of dishes including Vietnamese rice paper rolls, chilli soy dipping sauce, and beetroot soup with parsley oil and sourdough croutons. Oh and save room for dessert delights, such as the chocolate brownie, lemon and blueberry cheesecake or spiced poached pear.

Where: 192 Derby Road, NG7 1NF

Students of Nottingham, add this to your list of places to get your mum and dad to take you when they visit. Unique and imaginative plant-based dining is their thing, and they do it to a Michelin standard. There’s a ten-course tasting menu available for vegans that will leave you feeling satisfied and hungry to go back. Booking as far in advance as possible is advised, as tables get snapped up quickly.

Where: The Corner House, Trinity Square, NG1 4BD

Indian restaurants are known for being a haven for vegans and veggies, and Tamatanga caters to the plant-based community a little differently. ‘Not your average Indian restaurant’, here you’ll find curry bowls, thali, biryani bowls and more. Celebrating something special? Opt for a party platter complete with poppadoms, snacks, mains and plenty of prosecco.

Angel Microbrewery 

Where: 7 Stoney Street, NG1 1LG

The Angel is one of the few pubs in the city serving vegan, veggie and meat versions of nearly all the dishes so everyone can enjoy a pie, 'fish' and chips, burrito and even steak, with tasty seitan options on offer. Vegan beers brewed in its on-site microbrewery in Stoney Street are also on sale, meaning it’s the perfect place to kick back with some friends, enjoying food and drinks in the chilled out surroundings.
