An award-winning restaurant has hit out at 'holier-than-thou' vegan customers after it received backlash over its new menu, which does not include any main courses suitable for them. 

The Kitchen at London House on the Isle of Wight took to social media to defend itself against 'nasty' and 'bullying' vegans who were outraged at their decision to refuse to cater to their diets.

Addressing its critics, it said: 'If you want vegan food, go to a vegan restaurant'.

The popular high street restaurant in Ventnor said that while it used to serve some vegan food they decided to stop due to a 'militant minority'.

Vegans do not eat any food derived from animals and typically do not use any animal products at all.

The backlash from the island's vegan community came after the restaurant and bistro recently announced the evening menu for Fridays and Saturdays on their Facebook page for their new London House Bistro restaurant.

However, some criticised the restaurant for not including a main dish for vegans.

One user commented, 'No vegan mains!!' to which the restaurant responded, 'No!', while another wrote, 'sad menu'.

After defending their new menu choices, another user replied saying they were 'trying your best to play the victim here'.

But others supported the restaurant's decision, with one user telling disgruntled vegans, 'Nice to see vegetarian[s] catered for rather than being lumped in with the tasteless vegan nonsense that some slop up' and another writing, 'Can't wait to come visit'.

Just three days after their post announcing the menu, The Kitchen at London house wrote a second post lamenting the 'bullying' comments they received and explaining why they had stopped catering for 'holier-than-thou' vegans.
