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

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1.  Dishoom

This much-hyped eatery is a celebration of Iranian cafés in Bombay. The vegan menu is full of exquisite plant-based offerings - from curries to samosas and uniquely flavoured desserts, Dishoom certainly lives up to its reputation as a must-visit hotspot. More info.

  1. 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.
