Recently Cornwall has gained a reputation as a bit of a mecca for plant-based foodies, and rightly so. Veganism is on the rise worldwide, but especially in the UK. A vegan diet can help lower your carbon footprint and reduce health risks. There are dozens of great Cornish restaurants offering full vegan menus. Here’s a brief guide to the best vegan restaurants in Cornwall:

The Cornish Vegan Restaurant, Truro
Postcode: TR1 3BU
One of the best restaurants in the Truro area, The Cornish Vegan, is owned and run by local ‘lads’ Rob and Graham, two globetrotters who wanted to share the vegan lifestyle with their Cornish roots; bring some plant-based food love to all their friends and family back home.
Focusing on local and sustainably sourced products, this vegetarian and vegan restaurant is an ideal destination regardless of diet preferences. Inspired by travel and the flavours of different cultures, their food is heart-warming, nourishing and delicious. Favourites include a hot Reuben sandwich and mushroom fusion with rice.
Sprout Health Foods – A Vegan Restaurant in Newquay
Postcode: TR7 1F
For some people, the joy of vegan food has less to do with flavour and more to do with the many health benefits that come with it. Sprout Health Foods in Newquay may be your place if this is the case.
Featuring a fully plant-based menu, their dishes specialise in catering for restricted diets and range from the more hearty meals like Dahl, curry and stew to an exciting selection of delicious sweet treats and hot drinks. While you’re here, you may as well top up your vegan treats at the zero-waste shop.
And once summer comes around, you can pop next door to Freddo’s – a friendly ice cream parlour offering vegan options. Some say it’s the best vegan ice cream in Cornwall.
Restaurants with an Excellent Vegan Menu
Sometimes you don’t need a totally vegan restaurant; you’re just looking for a separate vegan menu – maybe to satisfy one or two family members If that’s the case, here’s a couple that could suit:
The Headland Hotel and Spa, Newquay
Postcode: TQ1 2EF
Offering spectacular vistas and unforgettable food, the Headland Hotel and Spa is here to provide a memorable and lavish experience.
Whether you’re here for a spa, staying the night or just coming for the food, you’ll be able to enjoy the varied menus of our 3 distinctive restaurants.
Begin with a continental buffet breakfast in the Romanoff before progressing to a light lunch in The Gallery Lounge, and finish off with a snaky cocktail and some breathtaking sea views on The Terrace. View on TripAdvisor Here >>>
The Plantation Tea Rooms, Polperro
With a reputation for the most delicious vegan cream teas in Cornwall, we simply had to include the Plantation Tea Rooms in Polperro – a rustic destination for delicious food and fairy-garden surroundings.
The seating is stylish in up-cycled wood, and you sit in a garden of brilliantly coloured flowers and greenery. As well as the famous cream teas – which will suit vegans and non-vegans alike – there is a wide range of jacket potatoes, toasties, and tuna baguettes.
This great spot wasn’t voted TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice 2021 for nothing!
