cosy and friendly - Edit

Very happy to find a pint with bangers and chips (or mash) on a snowy evening. It's tucked away but a very nice place to spend an evening. My food was good - and when they put the vegan fish and chips on the menu it'll be great! Interesting options, especially for vegetarians.

Nice grub, cosy environment - Edit

Sadly they were out of the vegan fish and chips but the Tikka Masala was nice. I asked for medium spice but it didn’t seem to have any spice but was still nice. My husband enjoyed the bangers and mash, the mash was especially tasty. We’d go back if we happen to be in the area. No vegan desserts sadly.

Veg options British style - Edit

How many British pubs exist in DC, let alone ones with vegan items? Well, that's the selling point for coming to The Alibi. It's a cute little spot off the main downtown area. There's a ton of outdoor seating, and some indoor seating.

The menu has a few salads and veggie sides that can be veganized. Appetizers include sweet potato fries and chili, guacamole and chips (regular potato fries). There are also sandwiches that can be made w mushrooms or other substitutes like the Cubans, BBQ, sausage and fish sandwiches. They have a house-made vegan black bean sausage, too. Random, but good, a coconut based curry dish with basmati rice. The ginger soda is tasty.

The beer and drink offerings are pretty good too.

Pros: Marks V for veg , Sweet potato fries

Cons: V is vegetarian but not necessarily vegan

Nice small place for a bite - Edit

Really nice little pub. The waitress was very knowledgeable about vegan options and told us about everything we could order. Ended up with the vegan Fish and Chips, which actually freaked us out to be honest. We were reassured that the tartar sauce was made with vegenaise, so we were able to enjoy our meal. Some reviews state that the "fish" is house made, but we were pretty convinced that is was Gardein based on taste and appearance. Doesn't bother me any, it was really good either way!

Pros: Nice pub, Knowledgeable staff, Good food

Cons: None

If only... - Edit

I was very pleased to find an authentic British pub in the heart of Washington DC.
They serve mostly meat but have at least half a dozen vegan options!
They have homemade vegan fish and sausages. The vegan fish and chips is a must try. Don't miss out the malt vinegar for those chips.
Love the takeaway containers they provide for unfinished food, microwavable and washable. They even put in plasticware plus salt and pepper. so thoughtful of them.

Excellent find - Edit

Well located near the Capitol and National Art Gallery. I had the vegan fish sandwich and the vegetarian sausage rolls, both were very good. Service was also excellent even though I was outside on a cold, rainy day.

Pros: Food, Service
