The Top 100’s Best Restaurants for Vegans

5 years ago

With more and more people getting involved in Veganuary every year and around a third of Brits saying they were eating fewer or no meat products in 2018. The rise and rise of veganism continued unabated throughout 2019 and in 2020 it’s almost the new normal.

The outdated image of a pallid Neil from The Young Ones with his sad daily dinner of boiled mung beans has been replaced by that of healthy, strong, ‘woke’ young things making dietary choices that it is claimed are nutritionally complete and better for the planet, not just the animals that graze on it.

There has been a palpable shift on the dining scene, in both attitudes and menus. Not that long ago, the sole veggie option, if you were lucky enough to find one, was the ubiquitous mushroom risotto. Now it’s a brave, or dare we say out-of-touch restaurant that doesn’t include at least one or two creative vegan options. Many opting for a whole menu.

We have scoured our Top 100 list to see whose vegan game is strong in the North West. All of the following restaurants currently offer a full vegan menu, not just one or two token dishes. Some even with top-notch ten-course tasting menus.
