Acorn Vegetarian Kitchen is tucked away down a side street off Abbey Green, but its reputation precedes its low-key location. The creative menu offers a wealth of vegetarian and vegan dishes that vary with the season but are always delicious. Some mainstays include a heavenly carrot and cashew pâte and smoked, glazed field mushroom — their long-running popularity speaks for itself. Don’t skip dessert: Acorn makes a (vegan) salted chocolate tart that’s out of this world.
The Boston Tea Party has two spots in Bath; the light and airy original on Kingsmead Square, and a newer branch on Alfred Street. Brunch is a big deal at BTP, with everything from a classic veggie breakfast to sweetcorn hash or brown rice porridge made with coconut milk. Elsewhere you’ll find veggie burgers and a ‘super salad’ that more than lives up to its name. Everything is made from scratch on site, the eggs are free range and the milk organic, and many dishes can be made vegan on request.
