Veganuary in Kent: six places to eat vegan in January and beyond

By Angela Cole

Time was when being a vegan meant eating out was such a minefield, it was easier not to. But with the rise in popularity of eating vegan, many eateries are catering for Veganuary - and beyond. Reasons for trying vegan could be a love of animals; the impact on the world or just a healthy start to the year. Here’s six to try...

1. The Plant Base, Tunbridge Wells

The whole food kitchen serves breakfast, brunch and lunch, plus fresh cold-pressed juice and gluten free options, plus sweet treats such as homemade raw brownie and cashew creamy torte, all cooked from scratch.
