#221 Lovely dinner at The Gate (Islington), London

restaurant review #221 – The Gate is vegetarian restaurant in London. Actually there are already three The Gate restaurants in London (Islington, Marylebone, Hammersmith), and in March 2019 a fourth one will open (St. John’s Wood). We had already been to the one at Marylebone (see review here), so this time we went to the one in Islington. This was during our stay in London for VegfestUK, in the Fall of 2018 (see post here). The Gate at Islington is a spacious place, and nicely renovated. A combination of old and new. There’s a restaurant room at ground level, and a room in the back which is up a few steps. I had made a reservation online, and we were warmly welcomed and took place in the ground floor restaurant room, with a view at the bar. Everything on the menu at the Gate is vegan, except for the non-vegan options labelled as such (NV = not vegan). We had a lovely dinner. Mezze platter (£22) to share as a starter. Mushroom risotto (£16) and …

#63 Disappointing dinner at vegetarian resto Food for Friends, Brighton (UK) **

Restaurant review #63 – This is the last restaurant review from our visit to Brighton (UK) last Summer. You can see an overview of all our reviews of our Brighton trip here. I wish I could say I have saved the best for last, but helas. Food for Friends is the oldest vegetarian restaurant in Brighton, and a ‘household name’ as it were. So we definitely wanted to visit it during our mini break in Brighton and made a reservation for dinner. It is located in the city center of Brighton, not far from the famous Brighton Pier.

#46 Nice vegan pub food at The Prince George in Brighton (UK) ****

Restaurant review #46 – The Prince George is a vegetarian Pub in Brighton, in the south East of England. It is in the city center, about 5 minutes by foot from the train station. Brighton is a vibrant but also quite touristic place, with lots of opportunities for vegans (that is also the main reason why we choose to go there). I will put a more general post about our visit to Brighton up later. And there are several restaurant reviews coming up, as we defintely ate a lot! 🙂 We were a bit anxious to dine at the Prince George, as we thought it may be with loud music and too crowded, but it was a very relaxed and enjoyable experience. There were plenty of other people in the pub, but the arrangements of the seatings sideways in seperate ‘chambers’ easily allows for decent conversations. Hard seatings though and also small and rather instable tables! The interior seems to us like a typical English pub, but what’s different of course is that it is a …
