When you follow a vegan diet, finding somewhere to dine out can prove tricky, with many places offering limited options.

We've rounded up some of our favourite vegan foodie havens from across the UK…
Fine dining doesn't often cater to plant-based diets, but at Ormer there's a whole separate menu created specifically for vegetarians and vegan by Michelin-starred chef Shaun Rankin with dishes ranging from a butternut squash risotto to coconut panna cotta. After dinner, you might also want to check out Manetta's bar at the far end of the restaurant, where you'll feel like you've stepped back into the 1930s thanks to the reinvented bar and vintage décor.
