Tastiest Vegan Burger around! - Edit

Hidden upstairs local bar along Whyte. My travel buddy had chilli cheese chips and I had the burger and chips - all vegan! The burgers tasted so similiar to actual meat burgers it was ridiculous! Come here for your cruelty free junk food fix!

Pros: Tasty cheap Vegan fast food with a beer!

Cons: Bar hidden from street view

All Vegan All the Time - Edit

Funky pub atmosphere, looks like a great place to party. Food was excellent, I had a hard time deciding because everything sounded so good. We had the buffalo wings, fish tacos, fried avocado tacos, chicken and waffles and the garlic was all very good. The server was great, she took our order promptly and the food came out hot in a timely manner. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Pros: All Vegan All the Time, Nice variety on the menu, Great service

Cons: Not open for lunch hour,

Good Beer, Good food, Good music! - Edit

Cool place with a wide selection of beers and vegan pub food. They have food discounts on Friday. The place is spacious, music is cool, you can play flipper, the patio is awesome. The only thing I didn't like is names of meals. I guess they have a reason for that, but I can't understand why would anyone call vegan dish "fried chicken", or "pulled pork"? Other than that, everything is excellent.

Pros: Very tasty food, Wide selection of beers, Cool interior and music

Cons: Names of dishes

Amazing! - Edit

We were strolling along Whyte and started to get hungry. Thank goodness for the Happy Cow app, otherwise we never would have gone in here just from walking by, because there's no sign outside that would let anyone know about the amazing food. They also have a really nice patio outside. I ordered the beer-battered fish burger, which was delicious, and my husband had the pulled pork...I took a bite and it was also a winner. The garlic fries are amazing. I upgraded to the chilli-cheese fries which were good, although I would have liked a more fries to less chilli ratio.

Pros: Vegan pub/fast food at it's best, nice staff

Vegan Pub Food and Beer! - Edit

The Buckingham is pub and serves all vegan food, which is awesome. The menu is fairly large with a good variety. I ordered the vegan fish and chips, served with peas and coleslaw. I really enjoyed it, as I have never tried a vegan version of this dish. I would like to try the mozzarella sticks at some point.
I was not overly impressed with the beer selection, but when I asked the bartender for a beer with a lot of hops, he did present me with an IPA that I enjoyed. I appreciated the recommendation.
The place is not fancy, but decent in size with some outdoor seating. There was a live performance going on the evening I was there, and there was a $10 cover which I was not expecting. So, you may want to check to see if there are any special events before going out.

Pros: Vegan pub food!, Beer!

Definitely worth visiting - Edit

The pub itself is fine - though hardly a fine dining experience. It's a pub, and kind of an "old school" wooden, hasn't been renovated in years kind of thing.

But the food is yummy, if a bit on the pricey side for what you get. We ordered the wings and they were very good. The hummus plate - though overpriced - was very good too. We would definitely go back.

A pub food treat for vegans - Edit

I recently tried the new vegan menu at the Buckingham. I was very excited to test out their new vegan pub food, as the crew at Sailin' On is responsible for the menu. We ordered the chili fries, corn dogs and deep-fried pickles so that we could try a bit of everything. The corn dogs were really yummy, you get a large deep-fried veggie dog on a stick and some fries for $6, it's probably the best deal on the menu. The chili fries were great, they were topped with not only chili but also vegan sour cream. The deep-fried pickles were a little disappointing however, the breading did not adhere well to the pickles, and the pickles themselves were overly chewy and hard to bite through.
I would like to go back again and try more of the menu items.
