This week, the 18th-24th May is National Vegetarian Week.
National Vegetarian week 2015 is organised by the Vegetarian Society and sponsored by ‘Nothing But’. This year the theme is all about sharing and enjoying delicious veggie food with your friends, family, colleagues, neighbours, and community. It’s a great way to connect with those around you and explore tasty meat-free food together.
Vegetarian food is vibrant, exciting and flavourful. Whether using the freshest ingredients, from the supermarket, farmers market, or from your garden, or eating out, good meat free food is getting easier to find and is great to cook. Meat-free food benefits the environment, animals and yes your health and well being.
Some Restaurants and individuals are all doing their bit to promote and celebrate the week.
In the UK a national pizza tour is taking place. The Vegetarian Society is visiting seven cities (but not Birmingham) creating and delivering pizzas to share. So watch pizza being made, and help choose the toppings.
For the seven locations see below:
To find out more about the week and how you can get involved see the below link for National Vegetarian Week.
In Birmingham, try out vegetarian restaurants Warehouse Cafe, Bistro 1847, Veg Out Cafe, Deepalis, Jyoti, or Mr Singh’s, or try a veggie dish on any menu for a change.
In Sutton Coldfield Moor Hall Hotel and Spa ‘Veges out’ for National Vegetarian Week.
Moor Hall Hotel & Spa in Sutton Coldfield is inviting customers to join in a delicious and fun celebration of vegetarian food as part of National Vegetarian Week, which runs from 18th – 24th May.
Now in its 23rd year, National Vegetarian Week is organised by the Vegetarian Society to promote delicious and inspirational vegetarian food.
There are always plenty of choices for vegetarians at Moor Hall’s restaurants and whether you have been a vegetarian for some time or you would like to try a meat free meal, the hotel is well worth a visit during the week as there is 20% off all vegetarian dishes from the Oak Room and Terrace & Bar menus. The dishes on offer include starters such as warm walnut encrusted goats’ cheese with baby leaves and main courses such as pea, mint & feta risotto or warmed halloumi cheese with lime, pine nuts and a tomato fondue.
Head Chef, Charlotte Foster commented “National Vegetarian Week is a fantastic opportunity to try going meat-free for a change. At Moor Hall we take great pride in producing a variety of creative and tasty vegetarian dishes that meat eaters will enjoy too, so we hope our special offer will encourage more customers to give our vegetarian dishes a try.”

Such a shame they are not visiting Birmingham!
I used to live in Sutton Coldfield but I now live quite far otherwise I would be really interested in visiting that hotel.
I need to visit some of the Birmingham restaurants you recommend above when I am in Birmingham next time. Thanks for sharing Andy!
I know it’s a shame, not sure why they haven’t visited Birmingham. I’ve not visited the hotel either, but like and respect that they’ve bothered with NVW, unlike a lot of restaurants in Birmingham. My aim is to get as many restaurants as possible partaking next year. The plan starts now. 😊thanks for your comment and support x
That’s great what you are doing Andy! It would be really amazing if more restaurants would participate. Love your blog!
Thank you Petra. It’s also about making more restaurants accountable to provide better and more interesting vegetarian and vegan dishes per se on their menus. Some though unfortunately in Birmingham are lazy and don’t care about the veggie diner that much. Thanks for reading and liking. I love your blog too and its healthy content. Keep up the good work.
I agree, Birmingham restaurants should have more variety of vegetarian dishes but it seems this is a problem in some other other cities as well (at least from my experience, I get very excited if I find a lentil salad in a normal restaurant! ). Thanks Andy, I am glad you like my blog!
