A vegan restaurant became furious with a restaurant after finding a note saying she “was surrounded” following an investigation into the menu meals she could eat.
Lisa Cooney was eating with her family at Ravelston House in Musselburgh, Edinburgh, on Sunday when she discovered the rude answer after asking a waiter which dishes were suitable for vegans.
After the waiter returned with a menu full of circled items, Lisa and her family quickly saw a note fall to the floor that read “The vegan sh ** e has been circled,” reported Edinburgh Live.
Lisa said she was shocked and angry at the attitude.
She said: âI had dinner today for lunch with a family who are visiting for the weekend.

âI asked which options were vegan and the bartender said he would ask.
âHe came back with the menu with the items circled and he put the note on the bar, he fell off the bar and my dad picked it up and showed it to me.
âWhen I first read it I was in disbelief, then I was angry and upset, it’s insulting and so unprofessional, so total disregard for any potential allergies is a concern.
âI went to talk to the manager after my family had finished their meal.
“He apologized and agreed the rating was unacceptable.”
After speaking to staff, Lisa added that an assistant manager spoke to her as they left.
She said they were “much more understanding” about the situation.
Ravelston House declined to comment when contacted by the Daily Mirror.
