Every year more and more of us are getting involved in Veganuary – the annual scheme to introduce people to a vegan diet and as such, more and more places are offering vegan friendly dishes throughout the month of January and Dorset is no different.

Whether you’re choosing to take part in Veganuary for health reasons, to detox after Christmas or just because you fancy changing life styles in 2020, you don’t have to cry into a salad while your friends indulge in fancy cakes while on a trip to Dorset.

As more and more people become aware of veganism and other specialist diets, from lacto-free to gluten free to sugar free, it is much easier to find options on menus at both chain and independent restaurants and cafes. Whether you want treats or full meals, you’ll find plenty of options here in Dorset.

As a starting point, take a look at the range of free from producers we have here on Dorset Food and Drink. V Dorset cater exclusively for vegans and vegetarians making them perfect for your events during Veganuary. Or for something a little sweeter, the Dorset Donut Co pride themselves on their consistently vegan and gluten free donuts.


For those of you wanting some recommendations of places to eat out while in Dorset, take a look at the Dorset Burger Company where you can choose from three vegan burgers and the omnivores in your party can enjoy their traditional burgers. The Gallery Restaurant and Bar at the Hotel Rembrandt also has vegan options for those of you looking for a sit down meal.


Want some more inspiration? Take a look at our recipes pages where we have several recipes that are both vegan and easy to make vegan – allowing you the freedom to create your own dishes.
