Best Adelaide Pubs For Vegans

Gone are the days of a salad being the only vegan option at a pub. The pubs of Adelaide have really upped their game with their vegan offering in the past couple of years. All across the city, there are great pubs incorporating fresh vegan food in to their menus while staying true to the “pub meal” style. Think eggplant & chicken parmies, Beyond Beef burgers, pizza, loaded fries & more!

The Green Adventurers acknowledge and pay respect to the Kaurna people as the custodians of the lands and waters of the Adelaide region. We pay respect to elders both past, and present future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We acknowledge and respect the Kaurna people’s cultural, spiritual, physical and emotional connection with their land, waters and community.
