Weird name, weird place? Not according to manager of the Screaming Carrot, Jo Salter.

"I decided to give it that name because of the response from meat eaters, who, when being defensive about their ability to eat slaughtered animals retort:"Well, vegetarians are just as bad - carrots scream when you pull them from the ground."

Mmm… perhaps they do, or perhaps it's just a theory invented by guilty meat eaters wrestling with their conscience.

"Attitudes to vegan food are changing..." says Jo, "...not just because less people want to eat meat but also because there are so many more allergies to dairy products, especially amongst children. There is a vegan substitute for everything now - we've even got vegan fishfingers!"

One of the best sellers is the tasty carrot cake - just screaming out to be eaten?
