Where To Find The Best Vegan Sunday Roasts In London
Missing the delight of a Sunday roast at a restaurant? Here are some of our favourite restaurants with vegan options worth a visit. Or to get creative in the kitchen, here's our guide to making your own.
3 Granary Square, London N1C 4BH
Found in Coal Drops Yard is The Lighterman, a gastropub serving up delicious British classics including a good old roast on Sundays. The vegan offering of a Harrier butternut squash & nut roast Wellington is buttery, savoury and sure to impress anyone plant-based or not. Shout out to the glazed carrot and parsnip batons, which, despite every single item of food being scrumptious, was definitely the highlight of the meal.
44 Essex Rd, London N1 8LN
An iconic and much loved spot in Islington, The Old Queen’s Head should be on your list if you’re seeking out a vegan sunday roast with all the trimmings. Serving a mushroom wellington with Roast Potatoes, glazed carrots & Parsnips, Curly Kale & Shallots, Yorkshire Pudding & Gravy, you’ll leave feeling very full and very happy.
9 Phene St, London SW3 5NY
The Phene is the stomping ground for a lot of the cast members of Made In Chelsea, not surprising as it's owned by the father of MIC alumni Tiff and Lucy Watson (both of whom are vegan!). Order their mushroom and cashew nut roast en croute and drown it in their delicious vegan gravy for a Sunday roast done right.
34 Redchurch St, London E2 7DP
The Owl and The Pussycat is a classic spot in the heart of Shoreditch, and as well as great vibes they also deliver on a fantastic Sunday roast. If a Beetroot, fennel & mixed nut roast sounds good to you, get yourself a seat; because the trimmings are just as delicious too: rapeseed oil roast potatoes, maple roasted carrots, spring greens and rainbow chard, parsnips, yorkshire pudding ands gravy.
389 Kentish Town Rd, London NW5 2TJ
The Bull and Gate may have been known as a historic music venue for some time (hosting the likes of Nirvana to Blur), it is also much loved now for rustling up quality Sunday roasts. And vegans will not be let down here — a vegan truffled cauliflower, cheese and hazelnut filo parcel makes a great alternative if you’re not one for nut roasts, and it's accompanied with roast potatoes, sautéed leeks & peas, maple roasted carrot, hispi cabbage and pickled red cabbage, crushed celeriac, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. It doesn’t get much better than this.
