Food For Friends is a legendary vegetarian restaurant and you need to book except for Saturday lunch times. They don’t take group bookings for 10 or more on Friday and Saturday. Tables can be reserved online. The Food For Friends: Modern Vegetarian Cooking At Home cookbook is in 3rd edition now, available as an iBook, but there are quite a few recipes on the website. (A personal favourite – Théroigne)
Terre à Terre is another iconic Brighton vegetarian restaurant. Booking advisable during conference, you can do it online. Expensive but worth it. Takeaway and there’s also a Terre à Terre cookbook and other goodies from the online shop. (A personal favourite – Théroigne)
Happy Cow Brighton listings includes Purezza, the UK’s first vegan Italian restaurant.
Trip Advisor Vegetarian Restaurants NB: for many Trip Advisor reviewers, the most important aspect of eating out, is the price. Also, they will advise that a restaurant is vegetarian, because it has vegetarian options, which isn’t as good as a restaurant with a vegetarian food ethos.
Alternatively, if you have vegetarian or vegan friends in/near Brighton, why not ask for their recommendations ?
One thing is for certain, Brighton is THE best place for vegetarian food, in UK and you will be spoilt for choice !
