The Prince George, a vegetarian pub in Brighton, is pretty much everything you could ever wish a pub to be: cosy and atmospheric with seriously great pub grub to boot. The menu is all vegetarian, but I’m positive that anyone, no matter what their diet, can find something they’ll love here – the food is very much comfort food done very well!
The pub is situated on Trafalgar Street, just off the North Laines, and about 5 minutes from the main train station. You can’t book, but it shouldn’t be a problem: the pub is quite big, which means that most of the time you should be able to find somewhere to sit. On good weather days, you can even grab a seat in the little back garden.
I’ve only ever been here for food, but with it being a pub, you can definitely just go here for drinks too – they’ve got a big selection of craft beers and ciders that I’m dying to start sampling, as well as a small cocktail list, all costing only £7.50! At the moment they also have a collaboration going on with AYALA champagne, who have a designed a separate cocktails list with a few extra cocktails, all with a champagne twist.
The savoury food menu is divided into four parts: wraps & paninis, mains (aka your typical pub dishes), Mexican flavours and sides/small dishes. Me and Jim both opted for the Mexican flavours: I went for the refried beans nachos and Jim for the veggie chilli dog. Both portions were so big and SO tasty!
My nachos were the small portion (I can’t even imagine how big the large portion is as mine was already pretty huge!) and came topped with refried beans, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, mature cheddar and mozzarella. This was one of three different types of nacho platters, the other two being Three Cheese and Veggie Chilli, out of which the refried beans and the veggie chilli ones could also be ordered as vegan.
I really loved my dish, and I’d go as far as to say that they were almost the best nacho platter I’ve ever had (the best ones ever have to be the homemade ones by my dad’s wife!). The nachos were oven baked which made them super crunchy and airy, and were topped with plenty of cheese and dips. The only thing I was left missing was perhaps a bit of extra heat, which could easily be rectified by asking for a side of jalapenos or chilli sauce.
Jim really enjoyed his veggie chilli dog too, which came with veggie sausages, veggie chilli, cheddar, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, salad and a side of potato wedges. Phew! Quite a lot, right? And all for £10.45! Jim actually ended up taking half of the dog home as it was just too much to eat at once, which is something to keep in mind when ordering!
The Prince George is definitely becoming one of my favourite pubs for food in Brighton, along with The Hare and Hounds and The Joker, and I can’t wait to work my way through the menu (already thinking of ordering their pan-fried halloumi with tzatziki next…)! So if you’re looking for a vegetarian pub in Brighton, you definitely can’t go wrong with this one!
