Top 5 Vegan Sausage Rolls in London

In honour of Sausage Roll Day, we roll out the best plant-based sossie rolls

All the best places to enjoy vegan sausage rolls in our charming city

Wenlock Arms

Over in Hoxton, the Wenlock Arms rests quietly upon the canal. Its reviews on Trip Advisor boast descriptions such as ‘proper boozer’, ‘traditional old-fashioned pub’ and even declarations like ‘There's aren't [sic] many pubs left in London like this so visit while you can!’. But inside, a shocking sight could ambush unsuspecting patrons as they amble in: a vegan sausage roll. And it’s delicious. What next?!

The Waiting Room Deptford

Small but mighty, The Waiting Room in Deptford is the perfect place to get great vegan food at great value. Cosy and homely, the café offers up such ingenious fare as their Barmy Banh Mi, and their vegan sausage rolls are a true delight. For more meat-free sausagey satisfaction, check out their vegan Hot Dawgs.

Old Post Office Bakery

Old Post Office’s savoury range includes what can only be called a sumptuous vegan sausage roll. They are a pro at vegan options, which means their dairy-free pastry is on point: also available for your purchasing pleasure is a vegan spicy veg pasty and vegan Jamaican patty. Oh, the joy that can barely be contained in one butter-free pastry case!

Arancini Brothers

The Arancini Brothers’ unassuming range of cafés hide real delights within: totally vegan burgers, wraps, salads and stews all based around their crunchy, creamy, chewy and completely charming risotto balls. Perfect for a lunchtime treat on a Friday, there are a million variations to try out, with “chicken” and “chorizo”, but their humble sausage roll, coming in at £3.50 for some big-bite goodness, does fake meat as good as it goes. Why not add 10 risotto balls to your order as a small side?

The Greggs sausage roll

So of course, we had to go and try the Greggs vegan sausage roll out for ourselves. Three things became immediately clear. First, we love Greggs, second, it's an economic option, since you can buy it for the mouthwatering price of one English pound, and third, God bless this roll's traditional flakiness, beigeness and deliciosity. We're on to a winner.

Greggs, everywhere there is still goodness left in the world
