Seed Sip, which is owned by Jamie and Stephanie Sharp, now boasts a varied plant-based menu, with the owners saying they want to persuade meat eaters that they should give vegan food a go
Seed Sip, a new vegan restaurant in Plymouth has opened inside an unlikely location – the former mortuary.
Owners Jamie and Stephanie Sharp, who previously ran the Gin Sanctuary in the Grade II listed building, decided to rebrand the business and add plant-based food to its offerings.
While the outlet will still serve cocktails featuring gin, guests can now dine at the 35-seat eatery, choosing from a varied menu.
According to Jamie, while they are keen for vegans and veggies to enjoy their fare, there is ‘nothing more rewarding than having a hardened meat-eater come in and say “that was amazing”.’
He added: “We need everybody to make small changes rather than a few people to make a dramatic change, to have the impact we need for our children and their children.
“If we can convert 10 per cent of the Plymouth population from having meat seven days a week to six days a week it’s a dramatic win, and by showing that great-tasting plant-based food is available, that would be a big win.”
‘Everyone is welcome’
The couple also took to Instagram to voice that everyone is welcome at the eatery, and that its animal-free offerings should suit all tastes.
Sharing an image of their popular bao buns, they wrote: “We’re launching a 100% plant-based restaurant & cocktail bar.
“We’re on a mission to create great experiences for all. We still love meat-eaters.
“Everyone is welcome at Seed Sip so come and enjoy the food & cocktails, which just so happen to be plant-based.”
