With thousands of people across the nation expected to take part in 2022’s Veganuary campaign, we’ve rounded up some places you can visit across the North East region for a bite to eat.

Whether you're making the switch to plant-based living for the long-term or just pledging your participation for a month, there’s no denying that the region has plenty of places with great vegan options.

Peckish for a pizza or looking to tuck into a burger? There’s lots to choose from in this list – featuring some recommendations from the readers to boot.

Veganuary launched in the UK back in 2014, with the non-profit organisation supporting businesses and people alike in moving to a plant-based diet.

Last year’s campaign saw eateries and companies introduce more than 800 new vegan options to their menus and ranges.

Here are just some of the places you can visit across the North East to try something new (or revisit an old favourite):
