Bath loves veggie food as much as it loves pasties and croque monsieurs but this is no peace-love-and-wholefoods café. Acorn’s jewellery box dining rooms are housed in an old Georgian building complete with snug, wood panelling and clever use of a heritage paint colour chart. It’s chic, understated and just right for special dates. Presentation is elegantly modern – a dish of ‘old donkey carrot’ arrives looking like a Miro painting. Recipes are exclusively, but not aggressively, vegan – chef-patron Richard Buckley simply prefers that everything is made from plants. Expect the likes of homemade porcini pappardelle or beetroot barley risotto rather than imitation sausages. Meringue, in a wonderful dessert of compressed strawberries with almond milk sorbet and vanilla-poached fennel, is made from bean cooking water (aqua faba) instead of egg whites. If you really are vegan, or just a curious gastronome, you’re in safe hands.
