The Roundhill pub on Ditchling Road is a vegan-friendly establishment that’s close to the town centre, Lewes Road and London Street. The menu changes weekly but all of their dishes are vegan by default – some can be made vegetarian if desired.
The moment we walk through the door, it feels like time has stopped. The Roundhill is a place where my vegan dreams come true! From the scent of fresh bread to the cheery staff serving up delicious food and drinks in this quaint little café, everyone here seems happy–even if they are eating vegetables for dinner. It’s hard not to be transfixed by their incredible surroundings; everything from hanging plants that seem alive with colour to exposed brick walls filled with art prints make me feel at home (a feeling usually reserved only for my beloved couch). This was one experience worth waiting two months for…I’ll never forget what happens when you visit Brighton’s best plant-based hotspot.
The Roundhill Brighton is beautiful and unique. It has large windows on two sides of the exterior, giving it an airy feeling with plenty of natural light coming in to brighten up the inside. The exposed wood creates a home-like feel that makes you want to curl up next to one of those plants for some much-needed relaxation. There are additional outside seating spaces available if you need your sun drinking to fix away from all that hustle and bustle!
Vegan Sunday Roast
The menu is easy to customize for dietary restrictions because everything on it can be prepared fresh. You should speak with the team before ordering if you’re allergic and find this out in advance, though–it’s best to avoid anaphylaxis at all costs!
The vegan menu was the star of today’s show, so I ordered The Roundhill Nut Roast and my friend opted for Seitan ‘Gammon’.
The Nut Roast is a classic alternative option to meat. This dish was tasty and full of flavour, but it would have been too dry if not for the healthy serving of gravy that balanced everything off nicely – no problem!
Meanwhile, the seitan was a delight to eat, with the flavours of mustard and maple coming through. The portion is incredibly generous as well. Its consistency also makes it so perfect! All in all, though, this dish is worth coming back for!
The veg was not to be missed! The carrots were cooked through perfectly and so tender. And the broccoli, just right. I had never eaten a vegan Yorkshire pudding before, but my experience with this one was wonderful. It wasn’t as flaky and light as I am used to tasting in non-vegan versions of the dish, which made it taste even more delightful!
The vegan roast has been a beautifully delicious experience. The plant-based Sunday lunch is starting to grow on me. I can’t wait for the next one!
