The Roundhill Brighton – Why you’ll love it

The Roundhill is Brighton’s first vegan gastropub, with an innovative menu along with weekly specials and their famous 100% plant-based Sunday roast. Award-winning pub on Ditchling Road, The Roundhill, is close to The Level, London Road and Lewes Road and a comfortable distance from the hubbub of the town centre.

The pub has an inviting, homey feel to it, with large windows letting in lots of natural light in the daytime, plenty of plants and exposed wood, creating a natural and relaxed vibe. Additional outside seating makes for a lovely spot for some sunshine drinking and enjoying a spot of lunch.

Elevated Sunday roasts and regular events

The Roundhill pub excels at roasts and advanced booking for Sunday lunch is very much advised. There’s a Seiten Roast ‘Beef’, or Smoked Beetroot and Mushroom Wellington available. All roasts are served with plenty of trimmings including Garlic and Herb Roast Potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and Red Wine Gravy – yes all vegan too!

Drinks in The Roundhill are also vegan, with an emphasis on local ales and an ever-changing selection. They serve a sustainable wine list along with no and low alcoholic drinks. Live music, quizzes, and supper clubs make The Roundhill a real community pub with an inviting and safe atmosphere.

    We tried the Sunday lunch after they won the BRAVO for best Sunday lunch, we both had the minted seitan ‘lamb’. I’ve not eaten a lamb ever, so I can’t testify to its authenticity, but the flavours, textures and proportion of the roast were amazing and the best vegan Yorkshire pud I’ve had. The BRAVO is a well-earned award for this super friendly and welcoming 100% vegan pub.

    I went with a small group of friends for a casual Monday evening meal. Having been a couple of years ago I can say The Roundhill has upped their game considerably. I’d consider this one of the best vegan places to eat in Brighton at the moment.

    I ordered “Duck” in Filo and Corn Ribs. My friend had Melon “Salmon” Vheviche and Korean “chicken”. These are advertised as being either a starter, or suitable to order with other small plates to share. Our third member had the Poke Bowl, which is a main.

    We were all blown away by the awesome food, the good portion sizes and the value for money.

    The corn ribs were wonderfully presented, it’s a shame to describe it here, as it feels like food spoilers. If you like a little drama with your food, this is definitely the way to go. The Filo duck was tasty and so clever. As a vegan who misses meat, to have both the flavour and texture that reminds me so much of real duck, was an absolute winner. It has that melting fat texture and meaty chewiness that’s very, very hard to find. The Melon salmon is equally genius, replicating the texture and flavour so perfectly, that I wish I had ordered it too. The poke bowl was a very generous portion, it’s always good when the bowl is bigger than your face. To top this all off, the standard of presentation rivals that of far more pricey vegan restaurants in Brighton. It’s fantastic to have vegan food that isn’t all centred around mock meats and uses fresh, quality ingredients to produce something truly stunning.

    The customer service was excellent and friendly. They were very accommodating to us all, even while faffing about which beers to have. The staff are clearly knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu, and are helpful with it.

    All of this is high praise considering the overall quality of vegan food in Brighton.

    Absolutely my new favourite vegan in all of Brighton. And it should be yours too.
