Food Purity at Silo Restaurant Brighton

Silo is a Restaurant, Bakery, Coffee House & Brewery which believes in food purity, milling its own flour and relying on natural farming systems to determine what is cooked and how it is cooked. Everything is created from its whole form, cutting out food miles and over-processing whilst preserving nutrients and the integrity of the ingredients in the process.

The Silo Story

Silo was opened in October 2014 by former BBC Young Chef of the Year, Douglas McMaster who has worked in some of the world’s finest restaurants including Noma, St. John & The Fat Duck. He opened the Restaurant to challenge both the global food industry and to prove that a sustainable business is financially viable. ‘I call my food edgy eco-food, It’s not traditional, although many of the methods are from the cavemen era’.

Pasta at Silo Restaurant Brighton

Douglas is Silo Brighton. The food he and his team create benefits from Douglas’ experience and is praised for its deliciousness as much as for its inventiveness. The restaurant menu is simple and inspired by the major food groups: Plant, Meat, Dairy. It is not just his cooking skills that make Silo what it is. Douglas is out to prove that a sustainable business model is financially viable and that small ecological farms are able to feed the world.

Conscious dining at Silo Restaurant Brighton

Brighton is no stranger to sustainable thinking and doing and Silo isn’t the only restaurant in Brighton which concerns itself with issues of sustainability, waste management, and using local and seasonal ingredients. Silo is, however, the only restaurant in the world that composts its own waste on the premises.

Zero waste concept at Silo Brighton

Silo’s furniture and fittings are created from a desire to re-use, choosing up-cycling before recycling. The furniture is made from materials that would otherwise have been wasted and crafted with innovation to serve function. They have plates and table tops formed from plastic bags, other tables made from industrial floor tiles, and work benches crafted from filing cabinet frames.

To achieve zero waste, all products that are delivered to Silo come in re-useable crates, food grade jerry cans, pails, urns or containers. All that isn’t consumed by the customers is fed into their aerobic digester which can generate up to 60kg of compost in just 24 hours! Without doubt Silo offers a challenge to the current food industry. The topics of sustainability run deep in Silo’s DNA, no superficial sprinkling or buzz words are in evidence here.

    Lovely small plate brunch! We were able to sit in the lovely courtyard area with our dog which was great too.

    As soon as I heard this place was opening I had to try it out and a few years later I have frequented quite a few times. I love the concept and their eco-credentials and the dishes are always so interesting, fresh and tasty. It’s great knowing that nothing goes to waste – guilt-free dining!

    Unlike any other restaurant in Brighton, or possibly the country. They use ingredients that you will not find anywhere else and create dishes that are incredibly different to most things you have probably tried elsewhere. Their ethos is at the forefront of everything they do and for that I applaud them. A dining experience like no other.

    Have had one of my best meals in Brighton here.
    Combinations of flavours you have not tried before, ingredients you have never heard of and all brought together in such a mesmerising way.
    On the night we visited we had the wow factor all along the way. Stunning!
