For the first time in many years I managed a short break in August. Normally I have been the one who is happy to work whilst others have holiday with their families. Its less crowded and cheaper out of season! But this year was different and it was good!
On our trip to Dorchester we went to Vivo Lounge. One of a chain of ‘Lounges’ they have a very good vegetarian and vegan menu and fabulous cocktails. Definitely worth finding your nearest one for a good night out.
The King and Thai – an excellent family run Thai restaurant which caters really well for vegetarians and vegans.
The Hendover Cafe – another family run business offering breakfasts, lunches and tapas evenings. Great friendly service and good quality food.
We finished off August with a visit to The Woking Food Festival. This was well run and had a multitude of stalls selling lovely vegetarian and vegan food. From sauces to pies there was so much choice! Although being surrounded by so much food made me loose my appetite, I can recommend the dosa, sauces and pickles from Ollo Foods.
Woking also has a lovely food walk in between the two parts of the Peacock shopping centre (Market Walk). A great range of food stalls and a lovely fruit and veg stall selling everything from broccoli to kohlrabi and mooli. A real treat and a good reason to go back to Woking!
