Top 5 Vegan-Friendly Restaurants

Elisa Allen, Associate Director of PETA UK compiles the Top 5 vegan-friendly places to eat in Manchester.


V Revolution

With its retro American diner feel and wide selection of vegan junk food (think juicy burgers, "cheesy" hotdogs and mouth-watering brownies), V Revolution in the Northern Quarter is a 100 per cent cruelty-free café not to be missed. More info.


The Thirsty Scholar

Vegan pub grub served with a helping of live music – what's not to like?! Tuck into traditional favourites, such as fry-ups, toasties and veggie burgers, washed down with some organic ales, ciders or vegan wines. More info.



If you're after something a little fancier, look no further than Manchester's 1847. Right in the centre of town, this upmarket vegetarian restaurant offers plenty of imaginative vegan dishes to explore. More info.


Go Falafel

Looking for something healthy, tasty and inexpensive? This place has got you covered. Everything on the menu is vegan, from the classic falafel wrap to colourful salads and smoothies. There are two branches, one close to Piccadilly and one in Rusholme. More info.


Lotus Vegetarian Kitchen

With spring rolls, prawn-free crackers and crispy veggie "duck", this Cantonese restaurant in West Didsbury has an extensive menu of crowd-pleasing plant-based dishes. Take-away is also available for those who want to enjoy one of the restaurant's fragrant noodle and rice dishes from the comfort of their own homes. More info.
