Lunch, brunch or a full dining experience, here is a list of some of the finest restaurants to find vegetarian food in Lancashire.

Nutters Restaurant
Catering for all, Nutters has a dedicated vegetarian menu, rather than just a few dishes on their regular a la carte menu. From mouth-watering starters which include Rosary goats cheese beignets, through to chestnut mushroom and creamy Lancashire tart and curried red pepper and sweet potato fritter, diners won’t be short of choice - or diversity - for the next visit.

The jewel in Nigel Haworth’s culinary crown, award-winning Northcote pulls out all the stops for its vegetarian diners. With a choice from the vegetarian tasting menu, vegetarian gourmet menu or the vegetarian a la carte menu, there is something to suit all diners, occasions and budgets. One thing still remains the same, the top quality of food.

Whale Tail Café
Although this café may not be a fine dining establishment, it has certainly made its mark on the vegetarian food scene over the past 25 years. The Lancaster based venue offers delicious dishes created from the very best vegetarian, vegan and gluten free seasonal local produce, in a relaxed atmosphere. These home-cooked meals, snacks and cakes can be accompanied by organic beer, wine or cider.
