A Preston cafe has launched a range of vegan-friendly pancakes in time for Shrove Tuesday.

Town House Coffee, located on Preston’s Fishergate, is the only cafe in the city to serve vegan-friendly crepes.

Shop owner Gareth Hodgson said: “We’ve decided to sell vegan pancakes as an increasing number of people are becoming vegan.”

“We sell many different types of food. However, our vegan pancakes are easily one of our most popular dishes.”

Over 600,000 people are now vegan in the UK, according to NHS statistics.

Dominika Piasecka of the Vegan Society said: “With an abundance of vegan recipes online, you can celebrate National Pancake Day in style with vegan pancakes.”
