I have compiled a quick list of Vegetarian/Vegan restaurants in Manchester/greater Manchester area. It can be difficult to find places that cater for yourself or your dinner guest and it’s frustrating when your only options on a menu are salad or chips. Vegetarianism & Vegans, as a group, are becoming better catered for, and this is a good start to find somewhere for your next dinner date.
