Where to do Veganuary with your pooch. 7 dog friendly vegan restaurants in London.
Our humans are flexitarians which, less face it, means they will eat absolutely anything. Just like us!!
They tell us it actually means that they are trying to eat less meat but they just don't quite have the willpower to give it up completely. But hey, who are we to judge 🤣
As this month is Veganuary, they are putting in extra effort to make more of their meals plant based and we have decided to join them.
Here are some great dog friendly places where you can get your plant fix this Veganuary.
No need to fly to Portugal for vegan tapas, you can them in Peckham at UVA London.
Situated on the very hip Bellenden Road, the restaurant, like it's plates, is small but perfectly formed. Four legged foodies are welcome throughout, including in the indoor garden space at the back.
Staff are super friendly and brought us water and a cup of treats. Puppacinos are also available for free.
The restaurant is not 100% vegan but has a good selection of plant based dishes. Our humans recommend Seasonal vegetables and chestnut broth and the courgette and carrot no meat meatballs.
UVA London 139 Bellenden Rd, London SE15 4DH
If you lived on planet vegan would you worship seitan?
Luckily we didn't need a spaceship, just had to get the tube to Camden to enjoy this amazing Chinese vegan restaurant.
The restaurant is right by Camden station or a short walk from Regent's Park. Which is a good option as you will need to work up an appetite to get through their extensive menu.
All well-behaved doggies are welcome in the spacious restaurant and will get water and treats from the staff.
The restaurant is 100% vegan and our humans recommend the dim sum platter, wontons in spicy sauce and salt and pepper oyster mushrooms.

Fancy some California Dreaming on a Winter's day?
January in London can be bleak but once you're inside this restaurant your winter blues will disappear. Yeotown is a California inspired restaurant in the Inhabit Hotels Queens Gardens and Sussex Gardens, Bayswater.
The mood is chill and the food is a work of art. The restaurant isn't 100% vegan but has a great selection of small plates that are. Our humans recommend the rice paper wraps which are filled with fruit but it works and the beautiful potato pave with edible nasturtium.
And if the weather isn't too bad it's just a short hop over the road to Hyde Park for walkies.
Our friends at Shake Shack never let us down with quality food and a warm welcome for pooches.
In January they have a limited edition Crispy Shallot burger to celebrate Veganuary with crispy shallot fries too!
All Shake Shack locations in London are dog friendly and they have red velvet bone biscuits and poochini permanently on the menu.

If you have a sweet tooth Veganuary can be difficult as most baked goods have butter or milk but we have some great news for cookie monsters...Floozie cookies are 100% vegan.
Their cookies are stuffed with such deliciousness as peanut butter and jelly and pecan pie. They also have a selection of vegan drinks and ice cream.
The shop is downstairs at Covent Garden Market and has a few tables inside and out where pooches are welcome. We had our own vegan puppacino while the humans stuffed their faces.
If you're looking for a 100% Vegan restaurant in Barbican where every dish is not just delicious but also beautifully presented, then look no further. The food at Stem and Glory is packed full of flavour using ingredients such as kimchi, seaweed powder, and coconut yoghurt.
The restaurant is in a quiet, traffic free location with a few outdoor tables so is a great place for pooches who prefer more space.
Our humans recommend the golden hummus with multiseed crackers and BBQ cauliflower wings with creamy ranch dip.
Stem & Glory 60 Bartholomew Cl, Barbican, London EC1A 7BF
Having a plant based diet does not mean you have to miss out on a Sunday Roast. which is lucky because a roast at the pub is one of our favourite ways to spend a Sunday.
At the Mall Tavern in Notting Hill you can get this nut roast with all the trimmings and you won't even miss the beef!
Our human is obsessed with gravy so she was worried about how it might taste but she said it was one of the tastiest ones she ever had (apart from grandpaw's). She did cheat a little though and had the Yorkshire Pudding which you have to leave out for a full vegan dish. That's because she is a Yorkshire Pudding herself!
Mall Tavern 71 Palace Gardens Terrace, London W8 4DY
We decided to support our humans this Veganuary by joining them on no meat Mondays and replacing our usual dinners with quinoa and pumpkin casserole by Hownd and regular helping of treats from W'Zis.
Dogs can have a vegan diet or just try it occasionally like us but please always make sure your humans check it is suitable for you in case of any allergies or medical conditions.
