It was completely silent in there; some light background music may have made for a more comfortable dining experience.

GREAT vegan food. Highly recommend!!
Try the crispy kale with almond cheese as a nibble while deciding on your food, it’s divine.
The pavlova was also to die for, crispy pieces and wonderfully chewy, just how I like it!
Large portions
Had an amazing meal.

Fantastic service and the food was incredible. I came with two non- vegan colleagues and they couldn’t get over how tasty all the food was! The staff were very attentive and friendly as well. We’re planning on coming back again in the very near future.

First time at Erpingham House restaurant in Brighton. Went for lunch as the menu looked interesting and different and we were not disappointed. Loved the chocolate cheesecake and the Harrisa Roasted Squash Wrap was also excellent. The raspberry mocktail was delicious. Felt there could have been a bit more of an atmosphere but it was lunchtime and perhaps it feels different in the evening with candles lit. Maybe flowers on the tables would help?

Service and menu was great but the mushroom pasta was incredibly salty and so were the fries. They kindly removed from the bill but was disappointing. The ambience downstairs feels more like a cafe with harsh bright lighting.

Lovely food and staff. The restaurant is very welcoming and the staff attentive and knowledgeable.

Only slight downside is the toilets, which smell a bit damp.

But on the whole a lovely evening and will definitely be back.

Thoroughly enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant and the decor. Service was a little laid back but very pleasant. The food was delicous and very well presented. Both puddings were excellent. And all vegan, quite an achievement!

Fantastic vegan resto! First, but definitely not my last, time. Incredible food, super lovely staff, beautiful venue and decor - perfect location also as super central. Stuffed pumpkin with all the Sunday roast trimmings, a beautiful bottle of Italian Sauv Blanc and a chocolate fondant to round it off - which I had to sleep off - life ain’t bad…

We arrived 15mins late - we did phone to say we’d been delayed. We were told they were fully booked and we needed to be aware that we had to finish within the timescale set. However when we left there we’re at least 40% of the tables free. The food was very disappointing second visit and not been impressed on either occasion. My food tasted of old oil. The wine and company were good but won’t be going back over priced and nothing special.

The menu is impossible to read if you are visually impaired like me.
My friend offered this feedback to you many months ago and nothing has changed.
It would be great if you would improve accessibility by printing menus that are easy to read.
I'm not sure whether you are in compliance with the Equalities Act at the moment.

Fantastic food and wonderful staff. The ambience was just right as we were bathed in the green lighting and surrounded by flowers. Food was just the right portion size and so insanely delicious. I will be back to try the rest of the menu!!

The food was outstanding- the two non-vegans in our party were gushing over it. Excellent in every respect, only complaint is the furniture could be more comfortable but we sat there for nearly three hours because everything else was so lovely. Highly recommended.

Tasty vegan food, although very salty. Friendly staff and nice ambience although probably better suited to daytime rather than an evening meal.

Ok but food was incredibly salty and service was pretty poor- we were clearly forgotten about for our mains and waited ages though the waiters did apologize.

Main dishes (FSH/Lamb&Feta) went down smoother than the starter/sharer. All were quite innovative, but the starters weren't to my taste. I prefer Wagamama Bao Buns, particularly as here they were £16 for four! And we were not told until the bill arrived that they are not part of the 3 Dishes & a drink for £25 deal. The staff were lovely, but I can't remember the last time a dinner plate was cleared from the table whist someone was still eating? By the manager too! Still contemplating whether to go back or book Terre a Terre for birthday dinner...
