Whether you’re taking up the Veganuary challenge or have pledged to try more vegan or veggie choices in the new year, we’ve pulled together this handy guide of some of our best dining and shopping spots.
From meals out and quick bites on the go, to vegan fashion and beauty, we’ve got plenty of options for you to try at SouthGate Bath.
Vegan and veggie dining
Gone are the days of salads being the only vegan option on the menu! From indulgent pasta dishes to plant-based burgers, vegan dining starts here for everyone at our restaurants.
For mouth-watering burgers, wings and dogs, head to BrewDog. 50% of its entire menu is plant-based so there’s sure to be an option for whatever mood you’re in.
For a filling brunch head to Cosy Club to try its full breakfast with all of the bits, including vegan sausages, hash browns, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms and baked beans. It also offers cult dinner classics including vegan fish and chips and a vegan BLT.
Find even more vegan and veggie-options at Nando’s with its tasty Beanie burgers, pittas and wraps. One of its most popular plant-based options is The Great Imitator which tastes just like its famous PERi-PERi chicken, but it’s made completely from pea-protein. If you’re getting chips as a side, try pairing them with Nando’s own Vegan PERinaise!
Quick bites on the go
And if you don’t have time for a sit-down meal but still fancy a bite to eat, there are also plenty of plant-based options to grab on the go.

Food to take home
If you’re lacking inspiration or aren’t sure where to get started with a plant-based or vegetarian diet, more brands than ever are launching vegan and veggie ranges to help you cook at home.
From fuss-free ready-made meals to scratch cooking ingredients, there’s plenty of choice and new ideas in the Sainsbury’s Plant Pioneers range.
There’s also lots of inspiration online. Simply choose your dish, and pick up all of the tasty ingredients from Sainsbury’s. And don’t forget to bring a reusable bag – Accessorize, Typo and Urban Outfitters have a great range of tote bags for your groceries if you’re looking for something a little different.

And if you are making the switch to a vegan diet more permanently, you also might want to think about picking up a vegan multivitamin from Boots to make sure you have all the nutrients you need as you transition.
Satisfying your sweet tooth
From Biscoff spread, Oreos to Fox’s Party Rings, there are lots of sweet treats you can pick up with your groceries at Sainsbury’s which are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Plus, plenty of brands have variations of classic tasty treats especially for vegetarians such as vegan chocolate at Hotel Chocolat. They also make perfect vegan gifts for birthdays or celebrations!

Simple wardrobe swaps
If you’re on the hunt for vegan clothing pieces to add to your wardrobe, you’ll find plenty of styles for all seasons at SouthGate Bath.
Many brands including H&M and AllSaints offer vegan fashion alternatives, from bags to ‘Faux’ leather jackets which stay on-trend year after year. Or head to OFFICE to shop vegan trainers by Veja or browse boots in the vegan Dr Martens range.
Remember that you can also recycle your old clothes at donation points within H&M stores – supporting more sustainable fashion with some retailers also rewarding you with vouchers to put towards giving your own wardrobe a refresh.
To help you look and feel your best, Boots stock a wide range of vegan skincare and makeup ranges, including ranges from well-known brands such as Too Faced and NYX. The team at Boots will be more than happy to help you find the right products.
