The best vegan roast dinners and pizzas!

Posted on 10 / 10 / 2015

The Old Firehouse is popular with students and locals due to its wonderful atmosphere and great value food.

It offers vegan options for lunch and dinner, with roast dinners during Sunday daytimes and a pizza menu from 8:30/9pm most evenings and from 5pm on Sundays.

The vegan roast is a favourite of mine - it's a roast veg, spinach and chickpea cake served with veg, potatoes and gravy - and it's delicious! During the rest of the week, the veggie chilli is amazing, but very spicy! In the evenings it's all about the vegan butternut squash pizza, which also includes spinach and chickpeas with vegan cheese. They're not toppings I would naturally put on a pizza, but it's one of the best I've had, and definitely the best vegan pizza I've eaten.

Even if you just pop in here for a drink, it's worth the visit because it's such a lovely venue. It does get very busy, and you can't reserve tables unless your a big group, however there are lots of large tables, so don't be scared to ask other diners to share their table - it's all part of the Firehouse experience!

Pros: Beautiful pub, Delicious vegan food, Very reasonably priced
Cons: Pizza only served late evening/night, Can't reserve tables for small groups, Can get very busy
