The best vegetarian Sunday roast I’ve had in Brighton so far has definitely been this one I had a few weeks ago in the Seven Stars pub on Ship Street. It was full of flavour, and each option on the menu was something a bit different from your usual nut roast.
The Seven Stars has a total of four vegetarian Sunday roast options on their menu, which is already a big win for the pub, as it’s very common for other pubs to just have the one option. That said, things are a little bit better in Brighton, but still – four (very different) vegetarian options is something to celebrate anywhere! And what’s more, on three out of four dishes there’s also an option to make it vegan – woohoo!
The pub is very beautifully decorated, too, so it’s an all around joy to visit in more ways than one. We managed to grab a seat in the lovely back area which is lit by the huge sky window and has lots of different types of plants hanging from the ceiling. The decor is also very colourful which I love.
The price of the veggie roasts range from £10.95 to £12.95 and all include roast potatoes and roast veggies, a giant Yorkshire pudding (unless you go vegan), steamed greens, cauliflower cheese (again, unless you have the vegan option), red cabbage and gravy. Y-u-m!
I went for the Puy Lentil and Barley Parmentier which consisted of puy lentils cooked with pearl barley, herbs, spices, all topped with creamy potatoes. This was incredibly tasty and flavourful and the perfect option if it’s raining outside and you’re looking for a bit of comfort food!
Jim ordered one of the other vegetarian Sunday roast options called Wild Mushroom Vol au Vent, which consisted of mushrooms cooked in creamy almond sauce and served in a pastry tower (doesn’t a pastry tower just sound like the dreamiest thing ever?!). He devoured the whole thing and absolutely loved it, too, so the food at the Seven Stars definitely gets two thumbs up from us both.
