January may have felt a drag to many people; with dreary wet weather, dark mornings and the excitement of the festive season a distant memory. So, to keep motivated, many of us opt to make resolutions and positive lifestyle changes. This year saw a record-breaking 350,000 people in the UK choosing to follow Veganuary – a strict vegan diet for the whole of January.
If you enjoyed a more colourful and healthy vegan diet and plan on continuing with your resolution, we’ve listed three great nearby restaurants with a variety of flavoursome vegan options.
