If you’re taking part in Veganuary this year, the thought of eating out can seem a bit overwhelming and daunting. Where do you go?! But, with Manchester being the amazingly diverse, inclusive and cool city that it is – it’s got you completely covered!
Eat out to your vegan heart’s content with our pick of the best vegan restaurants in Manchester.

Plant Powered Sundays at GRUB, Red Bank

GRUB has become a staple on the Manchester food scene and the food market offers up a completely vegan menu every Sunday. Vendors change each week so there’s always something new to try!


Vertigo, Royal Exchange and First Street

Vertigo haven’t been open relatively long but have already got two venues on the go! The demand is strong. You can expect a large plant-based menu, including grab-and-go breakfast and lunches as well as a dine-in menu of stews, curries, smoothie bowls and salads. One of our fave dishes is the jackfruit and black bean chilli. Yum!


Wholesome Junkies, Manchester Arndale

CHICKN SANDWICH ?? If you haven’t tried one yet… What are you waiting or?! It’s even part of the meal deal ? #WholesomeJunkies

If you’re looking for a vegan treat that isn’t on the healthy side of the menu then Wholesome Junkies is somewhere you’re going to love. Completely plant-based comfort food is their vibe and the Chickn Sandwich is not to be missed.


Bundobust, Piccadilly Gardens

Not being funny but this Vegan Combo for 2 tastes absolutely nothing like the original Steak Bake. 2/10 ?

Whilst Bundobust isn’t a strictly vegan restaurant, (everything is vegetarian however!) this Indian street food favourite has a lot of vegan dishes to enjoy. And they’re all clearly labelled. Okra Fries are a must and we recommend trying the Bhel Puri and the Saag Chole.


V Rev, Northern Quarter

Something about Fryday? Idk ?

This classic American style diner, V-Rev has everything you’d expect: hotdogs, burgers, chicken sides, loaded fries, sundaes… but they’re all completely plant-based with no animal products in sight! The food is excellent and so are the creative names they’ve come up with for all their dishes!
