Following 'Horsegate' (Minced meat in prepared meals found to be from horse and other undefined animals) interest in vegetarianism doubled. Tens of thousands of people visited vegfests (vegetarian / vegan festivals of food, health sustainability and lifestyle) all over the UK to find out more about a plant based lifestyle.
The UK has a long tradition of vegetarian cuisine, the Vegetarian Society UK was formed over 160 years ago in 1847 in Ramsgate, Kent and The Vegan Society celebrates it's 70th Anniversary in 2014 , formed in London, November 1944. Britain has one of the world's most diverse selection of vegetarian dishes available, from good old fashioned vegetarian pub grub such as a vegetable crumble (vegetable stew with crumbled pastry on top), Asian, Caribbean and Mexican through to London's best gourmet raw botanical haute cuisine with marinated wild mushrooms, sundried tomato pesto with courgette tagliatelle, macademia nut garlic and herb boursin cheese and fresh coconut and cashew nut ice cream.
Britain has been home to many famous vegetarian celebrities, not just John Lennon, Paul McCartney , George and Ringo of the Beatles but Spike Milligan, Sir Isaac Newton, George Bernard Shaw, HG Wells, Annie Lennox, Leona Lewis, Sting, Russell Brand, Jude Law, Tony Benn, Elvis Costello, Benjamin Zephaniah, Kate Bush, Sir John Gielgud, Bryan Adams and many more.
Entries in the guide are grouped geographically in sections and within each section alphabetically by county, then town or village, then name. For London the accommodation addresses are listed first, with the eateries divided into Central, East, North, South and West and under these headings arranged first by postcode (i.e. W1, WC2, E1, N16, SW16, W6), then alphabetically by name
