The Green House offers a small menu of healthy light meals and snacks, such as salad bowls and bagels.  However, where it really stands out are its juices and smoothies, freshly made for you from a menu of nearly 20 choices.

The Bank – Bude (Vegetarian and meat options)Nestled down by the river, a little way outside the main thoroughfares of Bude, we’ve been a fan of this tapas restaurant for some time.  For vegetarians and vegans it offers a surprising number of dishes; salads, tapas dishes like pan fried padron peppers or Spanish omelette, aromatic rice – see their menu online for more details.

The Molesworth Arms – Pyworthy, Holsworthy (Vegetarian and meat options)
If you’re looking for a pub with a traditional feel that can still cater for vegans and vegetarians, look no further.  They usually 3 or 4 main dishes for the meat-free eater, they are always well cooked and the staff go above and beyond to please – contact them in advance if you eat gluten-free, and they will always accommodate.
