I’ve been meaning to try the vegan food at The World’s End for years and have heard great things. We have so many great pubs in Brighton that are really stepping up their food game, particularly their vegan offerings as the number of vegans grows.
The World’s End isn’t like every pub in Brighton and appearances may be deceiving… upstairs they have a retro gaming arcade while downstairs they have a new virtual reality area.
The venue boasts: Four player virtual reality booths, a remote control racetrack, 50 craft beers and Wolfsmouth kitchen. There’s a lot to do so you’ll never get bored.
The selection of vegan food is impressive, they even make their own seitan in house. Everything is clearly marked as vegetarian/vegan etc. They also have quite a few gluten free options as well which I know is about as popular as veganism. You can check out their full menu here.
Loving the fact that meat nachos were £1 more expensive than the vegan ones (carnivores 0 -1 vegans). This is something you never really see but sometimes I feel that’s how it should be as meat is more expensive than vegetables. In some establishments, veggies are the best offering they have for vegans. Not The World’s End though who cater for all.
Sidenote: Anyone immediately think of Napoleon Dynamite when they see the word tots? Ha me too. They sound really delicious though.
I decided to go for the classic seitan cheeseburger and fries add on (£2 extra – not a full portion) as figured that was a good starting point with their menu. If you love some good vegan junk food like burgers, mac and cheese bites & fries then you’ll definitely enjoy the food here.
The cheeseburger here closely mimics a McDonald’s burger which was definitely part of the appeal for me. The burger comes a seitan patty, cheese, onions, pickles, mustard and ketchup. I really enjoyed this burger and liked that it wasn’t very messy to eat (I enjoy a messy burger as much as the next person but not in public).
Perfect amount of sauce and toppings which a lot of places get wrong and they really overdo it. Too much sauce can ruin a burger for me and means it’s just messy, falls apart and you miss out on all the other flavours. This burger however I felt was bang on and so so good. Should definitely give the McDonalds on London road some competition.
The taste was remarkably close to a McDonald’s cheeseburger but I think the toppings had more to do with that than the patty itself. The seitan patty was very different from anything I’ve had before but was tasty. It was kind of hard to tell how meaty tasting it was because of the cheese, sauce and toppings but it was very enjoyable.
I’ll definitely be coming back and having this burger again, it’s one of my current favourites. You can’t beat the classic burger flavours. The sides look more appealing to me than the other burgers so I will definitely be trying more of those. I really recommend this cool venue and the food.
I hope you enjoyed this post and that you check them out.
