    I went to the Crumplehorn Inn in Polperro in March 2012 and they did a lovely vegan chilli. The chef was most obliging and they always try to keep one vegan dish on their menu. Best to tell them you’re vegan at the bar and maybe ring in advance.

    I would like to give a huge thumbs up to Moonlight Tandoori. We go there from the Monkey Sanctuary all the time and they cater for us (all being at least vegetarian and mostly vegan). We went so often they changed their menu so now it states Vegetable options for each curry all of which are vegan that I have had so far (minus the obvious dishes that would contain dairy) and with a stuffed paratha or chapati leaves you very satisfied. In my experience although places will do you vegan food in Looe the Indian is the best for quality and service, having been down here the last 2 years it is the only place we tend to go in Looe now for food!

    Hi, just spent a week in Looe and would like to second the recommendation for the Crumplehorn Inn at Polperro. Very helpful staff, didn’t get the usual blank stare when asking about the vegetable curry being vegan, also told us their chips are cooked in a fryer used for meat (unfortunately for my daughter) in fact they even state on the vegetarian section of their menu that some dishes can be adapted to be vegan. Best of all it was extremely tasty!

    I stayed at Schooner Point B&B in Looe, and notified them before I went that I was vegan, they were incredibly accommodating. They provided almond milk and cooked me porridge for breakfast despite it not being something they usually offer. They provided vegan friendly flapjacks and cakes for me to take out for the day, and there was even a Nakd bar and a vegan chocolate bar in the room in the place of milk chocolate and biscuits. It’s also within walking distance of the town centre and the Tandori and Thai restaurant, which were both lovely. I would highly recommend staying here.
