This is where today’s podcast comes in. What are the options in a British restaurant if you don't eat  meat or are vegan? And if you don’t know what the word vegan or  vegetarian means, then listen on.

You  can see the changes in the food industry as you walk through a British  town. Lots of independent restaurants are gone, the big food chains seem  to hang in there, but the prices have really gone up a lot.  You can see that corners are being cut. You will see less serving  staff, longer wait times and the little extras you used to get for free  are gone, all to squeeze out profits. Also, gone are the exotic food  options on menus now you get the affordable and practical options.

With lock-downs, economic slowdowns and energy price melt downs, we talk about going out to eat in the UK in 2022.
