Where to head out for a delicious plantbased version of this classic dish.
Diving into Exeter’s Oddfellows to escape the busy High Street, you can expect a warm welcome, cosy atmosphere and a well-stocked bar. Their main lunch and evening menus have a small handful of vegan options between them, but their Sunday roast is the main reason to visit this quirky and eclectic gastro bar. Taking an unusual twist on the traditional Sunday roast, their veg wellington is a sumptuous mix of seasoned English vegetables all wrapped up in filo pastry and drenched in red pepper sauce. Served with all the trimmings you’d expect, including perfectly crispy roast potatoes. 60 New N Rd, Exeter EX4 4EP theoddfellowsbar.co.uk
