Vegetarian Swindon 

It's World Vegetarian Day on Sunday! Here's our list of the best places to eat in Swindon if you're not partial to meat
If you're a vegetarian then eating out is quite often a very boring affair, and you can probably guess what the veggie dishes in most restaurants will be - Nut Roast et al.

The good news is there's plenty of places in Swindon that offer more than a flaccid lettuce leaf for dinner if you don't eat meat.

NOTE: We cannot guarantee that all the dishes mentioned below are available. Our advice is to call the venue before arriving.
The Fox & Hounds
The Fox & Hounds at Wroughton has some appetising vegetarian options included on the menu including a leak & feta cheese tart with tomato & green bean salad and beatroot & goats cheese risotto.
Swindon Designer Outlet
The incredibly popular Wagamamas at the Designer Outlet is host to a number of great vegetarian options including a Yasai Ramen (traditional Japanese omelette with crispy fried silken tofu and mixed mushrooms in a vegetable noodle soup), a variety of tasty noodle dishes and salads.
Chennai Dosa
Swindon town centre
A popular place for vegetarians as their menu lists their non-meat dishes first. Good value we hear too!
Gourmet Burger Kitchen
Regents Place
Not only a haven for meat eaters, you may be surprised to know their Californian homemade bean patty - with mature cheddar, avocado, harissa mayo, crispy onions, relish and salad - is one big hit with vegetarians in Swindon!
The Plough On The Hill
Badbury, just off Jnct. 15
With an ever-changing specials board, there's always likely to be a number of good quality vegetarian options.

The Biplob Tandoori

The award-winning chef and managing teams at The Biplob work passionately to create delightful mouthwatering dishes, many of which can be altered to be vegetarian.

Our favourite: Chilli Paneer - Indian cheese stir fried with sweet chilli sauce, onions, green peppers and mixed spices.

One of Swindon's favourite Italian family-run restaurants, Fratello's offers a superb selection of Italian food, including vegetarian dishes.

Our favourite: Ravioli Ricotta e Spinaci, egg Ravioli filled with spinach & ricotta cheese.

Greek Olive
Faringdon Road, Swindon
If you're a fan of Greek food, you can't go wrong with the vegetarian options at the Greek Olive on Faringdon Road.
We particularly recommend the vegetarian Moussaka with layers of aubergine, potatoes and vegetables cooked in red sauce and topped with béchamel sauce and cheese! Gorgeous!

The White Horse

This charming little pub is situated in the Marlborough Downs, surrounded by beautiful countryside views, making it the perfect place to sit back and relax whilst enjoying their fabulous dedicated vegetarian menu.

Our favourite: Butternut Squash Risotto - Pan fried butternut squash, red onions and risotto rice cooked in stock and white wine finished with cream, parsley and parmesan shavings.

And the best vegetarian breakfast?...

Bit of a tricky one if you can't have any bacon, but we've heard the vegetarian breakfast - with their special vegetarian sausages - at The Olive Tree Cafe at Manor Garden Centre beats a Full English hands down!
