Veggie Friendly Pubs/Restaurants
Posted by bigdave at 06/20/2007
How about including in the guide pubs/restaurants that cater for vegetarians/vegans? Here in the UK purely Veggie eating places can be thin on the ground but, a lot of places offer decent veggie/vegan options.
Just a thought.
Yes, Johnnysensible is right. You may submit places that not 100% veg., but they ought to be over 70% veg, or located in an area where there are no other choices. ALSO, you can always add notes about these veg-friendly places on the notes page for the relevant city. (see the link "Read or add city travel & events notes for [city name]" at the top of each city listings page).
There are already pubs listed. e.g. Bob Trollope's in Newcastle upon Tyne which has a menu of 100% vegetarian food. A shame they spoil it by selling non vegetarian beer.
I cannot remember the name now.
Does anyone else remember it? Does it still exist. The raw & veggy food there was glorious.
Most English towns have at least one veg-friendly place.
We need a really enthusiastic "Brit" to list some of them.
Going back to what Dave said, I also think it would be good to list restaurants with Vegetarian/Vegan options or who have a Vegan night once a week for that matter. However, I don't think that these restaurants should be intertwined with the restaurants that are 70%+ Vegetarian. Maybe, and this is just an idea, the notes section can be moved to the top of the listings [i.e. like under the city] and change the name to something like "Other Restaurants with Vegetarian Options, Travel Notes, and Events."
Also, I don't think it's necessary to have a review option for these places. It would just be nice to have their name, site, address, phone number, and maybe a brief description as to what they have that's Vegetarian [for instance McAlister's deli here has a Vegetarian menu (includes Veggie Chili); also, there are plenty of Indian restaurants here]. I know of several places here with Vegetarian/Vegan options, but they can't be added because they're not 70% or 30% for that matter.
Webmaster, sorry to keep you busy with my suggestions, I just like helping! I think I'm going be quiescent regarding the suggestions for now ;)! TTYL!
Firstly, no need to be sorry... I am very grateful for your suggestions. We're working on many new things here and are releasing many features in the next couple months.
The city notes pages may already be used to post the places we don't include in the regular listing pages.
Currently the link from cities reads:
"See or post additional info on Vegetarian [city name]."
If you have a better suggestion we can change it.
Please keep the suggestions coming!
