Manchester Vegan Society

When I decided 5 years ago that I wanted to try being vegan I was pleased through the power of Google to discover that there was a Manchester Vegan Group. They meet the last Saturday of every month at the Thirsty Scholar pub from 1.30pm. I've made some good friends through the group and had some great laughs. Meetings are not formal events, it's basically a bunch of people sitting in the pub having a fry up who are as likely to be talking about music or football as they are about veganism. Non-vegans are always very welcome we just ask that they don't order non vegan food during the meet ups. I've taken non veggie friends along and they've all enjoyed them.

Last Sunday was our Christmas feast. We started with non-prawn cocktails, closely followed by tomato and garlic soup.

Next was a mammoth traditional Christmas dinner. You can't even see the mock turkey it's so hidden beneath the rest.

Finally to finish there was Christmas pud with white or brandy sauce. The pub also labelled all the draught and bottled beers that were vegan as well for us. I was very full but very happy! Has anyone else been out for a vegan Christmas dinner yet?


  1. Do you still meet at the last Saturday of every month at the Thirsty scholar? I've been a vegan for two years and it would be nice to meet others as I rarely find any.

    Kind regards

  2. Hi from Spain! That looks scrumptous!
