Creative Vegetarian & Vegan food at St John's Lodge Windermere B & B guest house


The emphasis for English Lake District vegetarian and vegan customers visiting St John's Lodge Windermere b&b is definitely quality, choice and creativity. That's why St John's Lodge received an AA Breakfast Egg Cup award in 2007.  Only a few hotels in the Lake District have received this prestigious trophy for the quality of their food.  In 2010 it also received the Visit England Breakfast Award and the Vegetarian Society has also approved its range of over 20 vegetarian and vegan cooked breakfast dishes.  This Windermere b & b has a proven track record.

As team leader Julian said, "I've been a vegetarian for over 22 years. I'm often asked, since I'm in catering, how I cope physically and morally preparing cooking and serving meat and fish dishes. No problem.... since my job at St John's Lodge in Windermere is to deliver quality breakfast dishes for ALL our Lake District customers.

The key thing for me is to be working in a vibrant, professional kitchen where vegetarian and vegan food is taken seriously and veggie customers treated with respect rather than derision, something I have often experienced when staying in other hotels on my own travels throughout the UK.

St John's Lodge, Windermere, Lake District b & b has truly kicked the old 'get what you're given' hotel ethos into touch. Beans on toast is a classic vegetarian dish but only if you've chosen it yourself. By careful planning, preparation and presentation our Lake District vegetarian and vegan customers can enjoy a quality veggie breakfast experience. Because we have a professional, well organised kitchen, veggie and vegan customers can feel safe in the knowledge that their food has not come in to contact with any non vegetarian products either in the preparation or the cooking.  Furthermore because we follow the standards and guidlines for vegetarian catering all our vegetarian dishes are also Vegetarian Society approved.  I am thrilled that we have received both a top AA and Visit Britain Award for our breakfasts"

There is also a good range of gluten free and dairy free vegetarian and vegan dishes for coeliac customers choosing accommodations and lodgings at this award winning Lake District, bed and breakfast.  And unlike many other hotels you don't need to give advanced warning of any dietry requirements.  Whether you are a coeliac on a vegan gluten-free diet or if you require a vegetarian dairy free diet simply turn up at this windermere b&b. Nothing is a problem to them.
