Boston Tea Party - Veganuary

Veganuary: top vegan-friendly restaurants along Plymouth’s historic harbour

The New Year is a great opportunity to try something different, set a challenge and achieve new goals. The most common New Year resolutions revolve around having a healthier lifestyle such as exercising more and improving diet.

One challenge many people set themselves when starting a new year is to try eating a vegan diet for a month. Veganuary is an annual challenge set up to educate and raise awareness of the benefits of veganism and encourage people to try the vegan lifestyle for the month of January. Since 2014, the number of participates in Veganuary have doubled year on year, with 2021 hitting a record high with over 582,000 people signing up.

If you’re trying out the plant-based diet to celebrate Veganuary, we have complied a list of some of the best restaurants in Sutton Harbour serving up delicious vegan dishes to help you.
