Vegan Christmas Dinner in Exeter

Looking for somewhere to indulge in a plantbased festive feast? Look no further! Here’s a selection of places dishing up three vegan courses to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Old Firehouse

With it’s magical atmosphere thanks to candlelit rooms and fairy light-adorned ceilings, it’s like Old Firehouse was built to sit in and sip a mulled cider and enjoy a jolly good meal. Aside from their legendary pizzas, they’re also known for being able to knock up a good roast. Their festive menu this year offers a plantbased Mediterranean tart for starters, a wild mushroom dish for mains, followed by your choice of Christmas pudding or Apple Crumble.
