Opened in 2015, the brilliant 1847 restaurant in Brighton has created quite a buzz amongst the seaside city’s vegetarian community and has even managed to excite some of its most loyal of carnivores too. Named after the year the very first Vegetarian Society was formed, 1847 is the brainchild of owner and vegetarian Damien Davenport, who envisaged taking vegetarian dining to a whole new level by offering a modern and creative menu using local produce and suppliers wherever possible. After opening four venues across the country, Davenport’s dream has certainly been made reality and vegetarian dining has taken huge leaps forward in the right direction.
There is so much to like about the 1847 Brighton menu, from the use of some pretty delectable ingredients, to the sheer creativity of the dishes. The comically named “Fish & Chips” gives a big nod to one of the British seaside’s most iconic dishes yet keeps things fish free and a whole lot healthier with a cider battered halloumi, hand cut chips, lemon curd and mint and basil crushed peas. The Oyster Medallions is another winning dish worth trying featuring herb crumbed oyster mushrooms with warm asparagus and quinoa and a roasted garlic sauce. As for dessert, the passion fruit and Chia crème bruleé rounds off a meal to perfection.
Perched along Brighton’s vibrant North Laine, 1847 is hugely popular considering the short amount of time since its opening. Spread over three floors, the restaurant is a cool and contemporary space complete with a funky spiral staircase and monochrome herringbone flooring. Brighton seafront is just a short walk away whilst the charming shops and boutiques of the eclectic North Laine are on its doorstep.
