Sydney is a fantastic place to enjoy vegan food, and among its treasures is The Green Lion pub, located in the Rozelle neighborhood (about an hour’s walk or 20-minute bus ride from Sydney’s central business district).

You can order food from the bar downstairs, but the dining room is upstairs, where the remnants of the former Red Lion Hotel can be seen behind the bar.

All the beer and wine served at the bar is vegan.

And the menu is mostly pub food in all its glory, from vegan burgers and dogs to pizza. The “chicken” burger was fantastic, as were the fries it comes with.

Slightly healhtlier but no less delicious was the “chicken” caesar salad, with homemade creamy dressing and crispy vegan chicken.

The Green Lion also has delicious-looking desserts, which (alas) we didn’t save room for. But the lovely atmosphere nearly tempted us to stay until dinner to eat again.

The Green Lion is an absolute must when you visit Sydney. In the meantime, follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
