Posted by 1 year ago | Permalink | Comments (6)

Vegan pub fare is available everywhere in the UK. Long gone are the days when a vegan meal down the local meant a handful of peanuts or a plate of chips. More and more British pubs are meeting the growing demand for healthy plant-based meals.

We’ve searched the UK high and low for the top 10 pubs with the best selection of vegan dishes. Here are our favourites. Why not stop in tonight?

The Globe Inn has everything you need for a terrific night out. It offers patrons many mouth-watering options, such as spicy Mexican chilli served with a side of roasted parsnip chips, fragrant samosas or seasoned curly fries, as well as more than 20 scrumptious flavours of vegan ice cream for dessert, making the perfect accompaniment to the indulgent chocolate fudge cake.

The Gardener’s Arms has hearty food to suit your every mood. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can order its Medley Mushroom Pie or Indian Thali Platter, and if it’s classic pub grub you’re after, look no further than its vegan burger or hot dog.

An independent music venue that also hosts comedy, art and theatre, The 13th Note serves mostly vegan dishes and beer, with a few vegetarian options. In addition to crispy gnocchi and falafel burgers, this pub also offers vegan sticky toffee pudding. Yum!

The Railway Hotel is a vegan and vegetarian pub, well known for its live music and delicious vegan food. It offers many mouth-watering options, such as the “fish” and chips – served with a pea purée and homemade tartar sauce – and freshly made authentic Italian pizzas with a long list of toppings that includes vegan sausage and bacon. Sweet dessert offerings include a rich mint-chocolate “cheesecake” and a zingy apple and rhubarb calzone.

The Wheatsheaf is an award-winning vegan-friendly pub in Thornbury. With an exciting, varied menu featuring moreish choices such as Funky Falafels served with giant couscous, roasted vegetables, creamy houmous and coleslaw or the hearty Big Burrito loaded with butternut squash, spiced rice and guacamole and served with spicy Cajun wedges, you can always find something satisfying to pair with a pint.

In addition to offering delicious vegan food, the Brick Kilns is a bed and breakfast. On your weekend away, treat yourself to flavourful Leek & Mushroom au Gratin in a white wine sauce or a beautifully seasoned Nut Goulash with onions, mushrooms and chopped tomato.

Nestled on the edge of the Chilterns, the Flowing Spring offers mouth-watering vegan options such as the Spicy Hippy Burger – made with chickpeas, squash and crunchy sunflower seeds – and a variety of vegan ice creams.

    Great resource and there are plenty of others, check out The Globe, Fishguard. Cracking Sunday roast with my fave – cauliflower non-cheese – and a choice of puds and it’s no less brilliant in the week either, vegan pizza, curries, mushroom pie and homemade chips and to top it off there’s a gorgeous old inglenook fireplace with a cracking log fire and a joke box with the best and most lovingly selected music in Wales if not the UK. Also, sorry folks if you are Sun or Daily Fail readers, you’ll have to leave your newspaper at the door.

    The Globe is in my home town and the food is gorgeous and extremely cheap, even my hubby and father in law who are committed meat eaters love the food there.

    The Black Horse in Endon, Stoke-on-Trent, has a full Vegan menu which is really nice, traditional pub food! 🙂

    I’m vegan and make all the vegan food for our pub (The Old Bell) in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire. We have a strong vegan following and we are rated highly on TripAdvisor and Happy Cow. I even make vegan Yorkshire puddings to accompany our vegan Sunday roasts (nut roast, roulade, pithivier, pie etc) followed by vegan New York cheesecake, vegan ice-cream, vegan sticky toffee pudding and vegan lemon meringue pie! Do please come and do a review.
