The Full Nelson
This vegan pub puts up a tough guy front, but it’s just a big ol’ softie when it really comes down to it. From the same guys behind Deptford mainstay The Waiting Room, The Full Nelson has a similarly animal-free ethos but still serves up artery-clogging fodder that eschews any vegan cliche. The staff may look like they’d wield brass knuckles at any misbehaving patrons, but they’re really cuddly little plush pandas who will happily guide you through your meat-free feast. The Colonel Burger - crispy coated ‘chicken’ filet covered in garlic buffalo sauce with lemon and black pepper mayo - is finger-lickin’ good. Their cocktails, meanwhile, are some of the best we’ve sampled in SE. There’s some serious meatless magic going on here, and we’re all about it.
