Erpingham House opening in Brighton next month
14 February 2020Two years after opening the largest vegan restaurant in the country, Erpingham House co-founder Loui Blake announces the restaurant’s second location, at 14 Duke Street in Brighton will open on 14th March.
The first site, located in the centre of Norwich, has gained national attention in it’s first year, being recognised by The Times as one of the U.K’s top 20 vegetarian restaurants & featured on Channel 4’s “What Britain Bought.” More recently, the restaurant has been nominated by VegFest as vegan restaurant of the year for the second year running, a testament to its growing popularity and subsequent demand for more locations.
Spread over three floors & housing a cafe, restaurant, bar, roof terrace & delivery service, Erpingham House Brighton is a 100% plant-based, free from single-use plastic and certified carbon-free dining. Its mission is to “normalise a plant-based lifestyle via instagram-worthy aesthetics, delicious food and an eclectic drinks offering”. The Brighton location will see a modernisation of the brand and food, with expert consultants from Los Angeles curating the menu.
Loui Blake said: “We’re incredibly excited to open in Brighton and contribute something new to an already flourishing hospitality scene. Plant-based dining is a rapidly emerging trend, and we want to support more people in their quest to eat more sustainably, without sacrificing flavour or experience.
“Brighton is at the forefront of the plant-based food scene in the U.K. and so it made total sense to open here, in order for us to push the boundaries & innovate to drive the space forward. It’s important to us that we carry Erpingham House’s mission forward, but do so in a way that’s specific to Brighton & the local area.”
The restaurant will open on to the public on 14th March 2020.
Erpingham House recently completed a £250,00 private funding round to open in Brighton. Backers include Brighton native & professional footballer Russell Martin, and current Brighton u23 coach & former player Andrew Crofts.
