The UK’s largest vegan restaurant – which is also plastic-free – opened its door recently, and is already experiencing success.

Norwich-based Erpingham House was founded by vegan entrepreneur and influencer Loui Blake along with championship footballers Declan Rudd and Russell Martin.

The three-story eatery, which was recently included in The Times top 20 vegan restaurants list, houses a cafe serving hot drinks, juices and lunch, as well as a restaurant which becomes a cocktail bar at night.

The outlet is housed in a Grade 2 listed building in Norwich City Centre – which was previously home to a steakhouse restaurant. It aims to ‘bust all pre-conceptions of the traditional vegan restaurant’.

Founder Loui Blake spent the past year travelling the world from Miami to Vancouver researching the best concept-restaurants, in a bid to create an outlet which could appeal to all.

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Blake said: “It was never my intention to create an exclusive vegan restaurant. It’s my mission to bust all myths around plant-based living with Erpingham House. And with 90 percent of diners being non-vegans it seems we have cracked this already.”
