Vegetarian & Vegan Options

Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate have a growing number of venues offering delicious vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

Whether it's relaxing lunches, evening meals and fine dining, or afternoon teas and seaside treats at ice cream parlours or fish & chip shops, you can enjoy a full range of delicious vegetarian and vegan food in Thanet's wide choice of eateries. Many other venues will also have vegetarian or vegan options available.

2022 marked the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Vegetarian Society - in Ramsgate, on 30th September 1847. The world's oldest vegetarian society was established by political progressives, involved with women's suffrage, anti-slavery, and animal welfare campaigns. The Vegan Society, founded in 1944, celebrates World Vegan Month every November.
