With over 360% increase in Britain’s population it’s no surprise that many new vegan restaurants are cropping up in England. The latest to follow the suit is a pub based in Nottingham, The Peacock. While the restaurant always offered plenty of options to its vegan clients, it is now making a 100% vegan switch. The restaurant opened up in its brand new avatar, after a complete refurbishment, in September 2016 and is the first vegan pub in the city. Our favorites on the menu are cheeseburger, jalapeno and cheese poppers and the sticky toffee pudding (classic British). For cold winter days, we love the home made pakoras with mango chutney in Indian style.
