A hop, step and a jump away from Mauldeth Road train station you’ll find this initially unassuming-looking eatery which is a firm favourite of local vegetarians. Focusing on South Indian cuisine, this hidden gem is so good that many carnivores declare it their favourite Indian restaurant in the city. Offering both eat-in and take-out options (in summer take a selection of dishes to enjoy in the park across the road), everything is so affordable that the best option is to go with a friend and share a variety of small dishes and mains.

Good, cheap, wholesome grub is the basic premise of the menu at Fuel café bar in Withington. This cosy space is frequented by a local creative crowd and plays host to a variety of music, theatre and poetry nights upstairs. During the day, however, its all-day vegetarian breakfasts, halloumi burgers, mushroom ciabattas and humongous vegan mezzes draw in the crowds.

Named after the year that the Vegetarian Society was formed, 1847 is the swanky option for vegetarian dining in the city centre. The contemporary cuisine may be significantly pricier than most of the other options on this list, but it’s worth the price hike to discover innovative ideas for cooking with vegetables. The classic veggie options such as halloumi and chips are on the menu but you’ll also find a variety of more creative recipes on their seasonal menu.

Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean you’re not into the latest food trends, and those seeking a good dirty burger will be pleased with the impressive selection at V Revolution. Newly relocated to Edge Street in the Northern Quarter, this traditional diner has all the classics – just minus the meat and dairy. The menu includes an impressive array of faux beef and chicken burgers, hot dogs, loaded fries and even vegan ice-cream milk shakes. There’s also a vegan bakery on site providing cakes and treats.
