Vegetarian friendly accommodation & eating out in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire

Nottingham, sherwood forest,  east midlands Nottingham  is home to the Legend of Robin Hood and  his merry men of Sherwood Forest.

A modern day vegan version of Robin Hood is Patrick Smith of  The
Veggies Catering Campaign based in Nottingham  that has made the middle of England  such a more empathetic place for  those on a quest to find good vegetarian food. He doesn't steal from the Sherrif of Nottingham but he does have a lovely bunch of merry vegetarian men and women ready to volunteer at the drop of a natural fibre green hat.

As you'll see from the list below there is a veritable cornucopia of establishments ready to  cater to your every vegetarian whim (within reason)

Entries in the guidebook are grouped geographically in sections and within each section alphabetically by county, then town or village, then name.
