Food for Friends is Brighton’s award-winning vegetarian restaurant in the historic South Lanes. Our ethos is tasty, affordable and honest cooking using the freshest produce, totally homemade, whilst supporting local suppliers where possible. Cooking without meat relies more on flavour and unusual combinations, which is why Food for Friends is so popular with all lovers of fabulous food. We also cater for people with special dietary needs, with vegan and gluten-free options for many dishes on the menu. The atmosphere is relaxed but attentive where you’ll be welcomed as a guest and leave as a friend. Recent accolades include a position in the Good Food Guide 2016 and runner-up as Best Ethical Restaurant in the UK in the Observer Food Monthly Awards 2015.

CHRISTMAS HOURS: CLOSED on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, reopen Boxing day. NEW YEAR’S EVE will be a 5 course set menu at £35 (tbc), reservations only.
