The study, by Exante used Trip Advisor review data to identify the most vegan-friendly cities in the UK and found an impressive 2,000 vegan takeout options, and over 1,100 vegan- friendly restaurants.  

It was prompted by a recent surge in demand for vegan food in the UK. Over the last 5 years, the number of vegans in the country has quadrupled, to over half a million in the beginning of 2020. Retailers and restaurants alike have responded to this; it has never been easier to eat out on a plant-based diet.
