A pick of Britain’s most sustainable places to eat
From multi-course fine dining to creative vegan plates, Britain is a feast of sustainable places to eat. Join us on a whistle-stop tour of Britain’s ethical eateries.
Pick of the brunch: British Sustainable Restaurants
Sample sustainability at one of these five eateries, all featuring a Michelin Green Star.
Black Swan, Oldstead
Offering a tasting menu driven by produce from its farm, garden and local hedgerows, the Black Swan uses an array of preservation techniques to extend the seasonal foods, giving rise to bold dishes with plenty of depth and very little wastage.
Where the Light Gets In, Stockport
Head upstairs for this large, loft-style restaurant perched on the top floor of a Victorian coffee warehouse. With an open kitchen that forms part of the room, you can see the chefs working their magic with dishes formed from whatever they’ve foraged on that very day.
Restaurant Sat Bains, Nottingham
An extensive 10-course menu features produce from Restaurant Sat Bains’ urban garden and greenhouse, including honey from its very own hives. One course (’a taste of the garden’), is served in the greenhouse itself.
Set upon the city’s historic walls, this vegan restaurant has a homely, wholesome feel thanks to its foliage and reclaimed wood interior. It serves foraged, homegrown and local produce and boasts a zero-waste kitchen by using fermentation and an in-house composting system.
Daylesford Organic Farm, Daylesford
Attached to a Cotswolds farm shop, Daylesford Organic Farm offers charcuterie and nibbles in the Legbar, pizzas and wood-roasted specials in the Old Spot or ‘Field and Stream’ mains in the Trough Cafe.
