‘Waiter gave us a sniffy look’ Paul McCartney on London restaurant snub over vegetarianism

Paul McCartney, 79, revealed he felt slightly snubbed by a London restaurant after telling them he was a vegetarian back in the day. The former Beatle’s singer admitted he and his first wife Linda McCartney’s father visited London’s esteemed Claridge’s one night in the rock and roll era, and a waiter gave them a rather “sniffy” look after they asked him for some recommendations.

Chatting to chef Ruthie Rogers on her River Cafe Table 4 podcast, Paul recalled the time when he decided to give up meat completely.

Following the Beatles split, he and Linda “escaped” to their farm in Scotland, and after watching the lambs during lambing season, the pair decided to give being veggie a go.

“In those days, it was actually difficult,” he explained, remembering clearly the heydays of the world of rock and roll.

“It just became a fun challenge!”

But the struggle came at Christmas when they were unsure of what to do as they no longer ate traditional festive turkey.

“At Christmas, I’d always loved the role of carving the turkey,” Paul smiled, as he credited Linda’s cooking skills on the big day.

“But suddenly, there was nothing for me to carve!”

So instead, they adopted a new tradition.

“I remember going with Linda’s father one night to Claridge’s thinking, ‘They’ll know how to do it’.

“We said, ‘We’re vegetarian, can you make some suggestions?’

“But the waiter gave us a very sniffy look.”

Paul recalled he came back with a single plate of steamed vegetables.
