The Warehouse

The Warehouse
12 Chapel St. North, Colchester CO2 7AT
Website (Menu online):

Whilst the Colchester vegan scene has gone from strength to strength over the past couple of years, one area that remains distinctly lacking is places to eat out in the evenings. But as veganism continues to grow, restaurants are starting to take notice. The re-opening of The Warehouse on Chapel St. North is one such example.

Portobello & BBQ Jackfruit burger
A steakhouse they may be, but their animal-friendly options aren’t to be sniffed at. Of course, eating in a restaurant that also serves slabs of meat is (understandably) not going to suit every vegan, but for those whom have non-vegan family and friends, it provides a great balance for those difficult family meals out.

Stuffed 'Egg Plant Steak'
And we’re not just talking about the regular falafel burger which often frequents the vegan section of any menu. The owners of The Warehouse have clearly put in some effort to come up with an exciting offering for vegans, with options on the starters, mains and desserts; you don’t have to miss out on a three course meal. From curry, to spaghetti, roasted peppers, a stuffed ‘eggplant steak’ and the ever-popular BBQ pulled jackfruit, there is something for everyone here.

Vegan Wines Available!
I’ve eaten a lot of jackfruit over the past year, and I must say that their mushroom and jackfruit burger is probably the best I’ve had; I highly recommend it.  But it was the attention to detail with little things that impressed the most. Having vegan mayo and other sauces available, as well as the sign on the table to indicate which of the bottles of wine were vegan-friendly. It’s always a relief to know that a restaurant is taking veganism so seriously.

So next time you want somewhere new to try, then pop along to The Warehouse, and show that there is a big demand for vegan food in Colchester. That vegan menu is surely only going to keep growing. 


  1. This place has the most perfect environment, great food, tasty wings, lots of good beer, but best of all - probably the best wait staff in all of country. Visited the Chicago event space last month again, had another great time.

  2. Thanks for your great information, the contents are quite interesting.
