UK’s ‘largest vegan’ and plastic-free restaurant opens at former steakhouse site

Erpingham House, a plastic-free and vegan restaurant which claims to be the UK’s largest, has opened in Norwich city centre.

Founded by vegan influencer, Loui Blake and championship footballers Declan Rudd and Russell Martinthe restaurant has already been named in The Times’ top 20 vegan restaurants list!

Erpingham House, the grade 2 listed building in Norwich City Centre which was previously home to a steakhouse restaurant, was designed by interior designer Nicole Pugh of Berrys and Grey.

The restaurant has a cafe which serves beverages such as CBD infused coffee and a rose latte. The menu, which has been put together by award-winning head chef Dan Jobey, includes superfruit cocktails, cashew jackfruit korma and its Sunday brunch menu is sponsored by Veuve Cliquot.

Loui Blake, Erpingham House’s managing director and founder of conscious branding agency, Tribe, has a background in the hospitality industry after managing restaurants in London and spent the past year travelling the world from Miami to Vancouver researching concept-restaurants.

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% of diners being non-vegans it seems we have cracked this already!”
