What: Vegan diner associated with Heather Mills and supplied by the VBites vegan food producer (formerly Redwood) (opposite Terre-a-Terre).

Prices: Reasonable.

Vegan menu: Pizzas for £8-10, wraps £5.95, jacket potato with filling £5.95, hot dog with fries £6.95, soup £4.95, fish and fries £8.95, full English breakfast £7.95, porridge £3.95 (see menu below for lots more).

Drinks: Teas, coffees, Whole Earth soft drinks, smoothie, fruit juice, sparkling and still water, wines, hot chocolate, bottled beer (see photos below for more and prices).

Service: Mixed. We ate here a few times, sometimes service was very good and one time it was bad. Order at the counter, choose a table, and they will bring you the food. They don’t always communicate very well with the kitchen staff which led to some mix-ups.

Once we had both ordered the same bun burgers and one was served with the expected bun and the other was on regular toast bread; this without any apology or acknowledgement from the waitress. When I called her back to point it out I was told that they didn’t have enough buns, again no apology. Not good enough. You need to ask the customer if it is okay to serve the meal on different bread, and you certainly don’t serve two meals which are supposed to the same, but are very different, without a single word of explanation.

 Comfortable? Yes. Best to choose a table upstairs beside the window. Chairs were comfortable, the tables a generous size and quite solid. No horribly loud music. Plenty of space between tables.

 Was the food good? Quite. Most things were very tasty, and we enjoyed them a lot. If you like VBites proteins then it’s a real pleasure to be able to have it cooked for you out in a diner.

 Toilets: Very nice. Nice fittings, paper towels for drying hands (always good), nice soap. However, on the first floor the door didn’t close properly/easily when we were there.

 My advice to the chef: Make sure that that all the ingredients on the menu are in the kitchen. Otherwise, very good.

 My advice to the manager: Please open in Dublin. Improve communication between order staff and kitchen.

Overall: What a vegan treat! Don’t miss this when you’re in Brighton. Also, you can buy the Redwood/VBites products here.
