Calling all veggies – you can have your roast and eat it at these Leeds pubs…
Finding a quality Sunday lunch as a vegetarian can be a bit of a chore. From dealing with sub-par meat replacements to having to go without gravy, or worse, having no options at all – it’s not easy. However, these Leeds eateries all offer a cracking Vegetarian roast dinner, so you can hang up your oven gloves and indulge in a chilled Sunday afternoon complete with a right good feed.
Just over Leeds Bridge, The Adelphi is renowned for its quality Sunday lunches, and that extends through to the vegetarian option too. They offer a nut roast made up of peanuts, almonds and walnuts with parsnip, Stilton and cranberry to liven up proceedings. It comes nestled next to roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, a homemade Yorkshire pudding and veggie-friendly gravy – all for £12.50.
