“If you live in Brighton, you know how much of a big deal the BRAVO awards are,” said Liam Day. “It’s a huge organization and it’s a huge award. And we are ecstatic that it’s gone to a vegan establishment.”

The vegan roasts on offer include nut roast, Mediterranean filo pastry, and minted seitan lamb, all served with a range of traditional trimmings, including garlic-roast potatoes and maple-glazed parsnips.

Wife Janine added: “Another thing to mention about this pub is that all the alcohol here is vegan. It’s a 100 percent plant-based pub so you can come here and have a nice drink or evening out and know that everything including the drinks is going to be vegan.”


Max Aben is owner of The Roundhill. Speaking about the win, he said: “We are so incredibly honored to have won this prestigious BRAVO. 

“For a plant-based roast to have come top in Brighton is something we are all incredibly proud of. 

“We would like to thank our fantastic team for continuing to push the boundaries of plant-based dining and to all of our lovely customers who have eaten with us over the year.”
