Take a look at just 10 of Northampton's cafes and restaurants offering a vegan menu - with even a few that offer nothing but vegan options. Some of these have only come to the town in the past two years - what else will Northampton see in the future?

The vegan menu inspired by the city that never sleeps needs experiencing. The team has someone cracked the not-so-meaty cheesy pizza with vegan beef, pulled chicken, sausage and mushroom. Is that vegan hoisin duck? How?
Northampton's most celebrated hidden gem is famous for its scotch eggs but prides itself on offering a vegan and gluten-free option as well. Its roast veg flat bread is a weekly hit.

Probably the most extensive vegan breakfast menus in town. Vegan bacon butty? Vegan full English? How about four options in its tapas list, or five other vegan mains? Zapato caters well.
Another of Northampton's only restaurant with an entirelyvegan or vegetarian menu. There's too many items to list here, but they've solved vegan sushi and have a huge mains menu.
This floating cafe built out of a boat on the River Nene only serves vegan food. That's everything - cakes, coffee, sandwiches... And with a great view. Definitely worth exploring.
Nestled above Chilli Village, Green Loft claims to be the "largest plant-based restaurant in the UK". Alongside a full children's menu, specials include cashew wellington and fish and chips.
The Church Restaurant was taken over in 2018 but the new team has bolstered its vegan choices. Pulled "pork" burgers and six different dessert choices make it stand out.
All food and drink at the Umbrella Cafe is vegan, including cookies, superfood bowls and the Umbrella Not-dog.
Like all good curry houses worth their salt, Aladdin's offers the opportunity to specialise most of its dishes to meet vegan diets, so don't be put off visiting with your non-veggie friends.
Customers on TripAdvisor have praised Old House's vegan food, including rissotto and Greek mezze.However, the menu online currently advertises "winter berry jelly" - an updated list is probably in house though.
