Around a third of the pizza menu at The West Hill Tavern is suitable for vegetarians and a vegan option makes use of vegan “feta” style cheese and garners high praise in a city where vegan pizza is no small matter.

Sunday Roasts by Phill Bartley

Phil Bartley’s name is also synonymous with the Brighton roast scene; it’s practically a mark of quality in the city known to take its roasts seriously. Again, the focus here is locally sourced, top-quality ingredients from small producers. All roasts come with seasonal veggies and classic sides prepared with Phil’s trademark panache.
