The UK's best vegetarian businesses?

Thursday 23 October, 2008

Congratulations to the winners - just announced - of the Vegetarian Society 2008 Awards.


The Waiting Room in Stockton on Tees and Dandelion & Burdock in West Yorkshire were voted joint winners as Best UK Independent Restaurant for Vegetarian Food.


Suffolk's The Red Lion pub scooped Best Uk Independent Pub for Vegetarian Food, while natural skincare company Halo scooped the award for Best Vegetarian Beauty Product.


Nominations were submitted through the charity's website and members' magazine, and reviewed by a panel of judges. A formal presentation for winners will be presented in November.
