The Nelsons Pub – Columbia Road

I am “gravy” concerned for anyone who hasn’t tried this roast yet 😍 {ad}

You all know I love a good roast and am always hunting for decent vegan ones that think outside the box and don’t just take the good bits off of the plate and call it the vegan option 🙃 (you know who you are)

So, I’m delighted to introduce you to @thenelsonspub. It’s next to Columbia road so I wandered down to get a bunch of flowers before tucking into this delight 💐🥰

The team describe the venue as a gay pub and classic British boozer. It’s cosy, busy, buzzy & perfect for winter ❄️ They also do drag events twice a week 🥳

I first tried this roast between lockdowns and again when they delivered it to me at home – you might remember seeing it 👀 So, I was excited to get back and review it properly to share with all of you ❤️

Here’s what to expect:

🍴Vegan cauliflower cheese wellington with mushroom duxelles, butternut pastry wrap (in place of a yorkie), rosemary roast potatoes, thyme and maple carrots, beetroot, garlic kale & veggie gravy
💭How nice to have something different! I really like the cheesy wellington. It could use a tad more flavour (we all know the struggle with vegan cheese) but I liked it still. Creamy, cheesy and a nice pairing of crispy pastry and soft filling. I love that they’ve replaced the yorkies rather than just removing them. The pastries are a little sweet but tasty. Arguably a lot of pastry for one plate but can you have too much? A very acceptable serving of roasties with six of those bad boys on my plate, plus loads of veg. I won’t lie – beetroot wouldn’t have been my first choice but I ate it and liked it so fair play. Good portion of gravy too. A decent and satisfying roast! 👏🏼
