First Review by Chelseachernobyl

Dishonest Service - Edit

I went here for a pub quiz with a group of vegans. Ordered the Big Mac burger and specified I'd like it vegan, then tried to order a Budvar beer. The barman told me they no longer stocked it but recommended the House Beer instead. I stupidly didn't double check that the House Beer was also vegan, assuming he wouldn't recommend it otherwise (seeing as I'd already specified with my food).

Later, a girl at my table told me the House Beer I was drinking wasn't vegan and I kicked myself, my hubby ordered different beers from then on.

At the end of the evening I went to chat with the same barman asking if the House Beer was vegan. He said, 'yes, it's vegan' confused because of the girl at my table I specified 'so, it doesn't have any animal products used in the fining process?', to which he responded 'no, not that I'm aware of, I've been told by management that it's vegan' which got a perplexed response from me. He then said, 'did you ask me when you got it if it's vegan?', and l said 'no, you recommended it as a replacement to Budvar' to which he said 'well, yeah it's definitely not vegan l thought you mighta asked before so that's why I said it was..'.

Which was..really shady of him. I accept I should have checked at the start but found the later lying when he knew the whole time super uncool. The burger was sloppy but tasty and the place is very trendy but I don't think I'll be hurrying back with that kind of service. Just a heads up to everyone else.

Pros: Tasty food., Efficient female waitress clearing tables., Cool, creative space.

Cons: Dishonest service., On the pricier side., Not a great range of lager.

Pub night out with the B.east - Edit

Yep, it's worth the trip. Vegan items are marked on the menu. The burger is amazing as are the fries. Other burgers were available, including a vegetarian one (as opposed to vegan) but I doubt I would ever go past the Morrissey!
Nice pub kind of ambience, convenient location and, as someone else mentioned, vegan ice-cream is available across the road!

Bürgerz - Edit

Despite the shitty waiter who obviously hates her job, the Morrissey burger was hella good, as were the chippys. Food was served super fast too! "Zero" gelato is directly across the road, and they had 5 tasty vegan sorbet flavours to choose from for desert. All in all it was solid.

Pros: two vegan burger options, vegan cheese option too, vegan sauces and chippies

Cons: Omnis everywhere with dead animal in their mouths.

Vegan Burgers Worth A Visit - Edit

There are two options of burgers for vegans and another for vegetarians. Tried both vegan burgers along with the fries. Was not disappointed with anything. Worth a visit if in the area. Good service.

Pros: Pink vegan burgers, Amazing fries, Good service

Cons: Not many other options for vegans across the menu.
