The restaurant will be opening on Sunday October 27 at 9am and will stay open until 9pm.

Owner, Kevin Farrell said they are "looking forward to opening" and have received "lots of interest" for their restaurant already.

He explained the restaurant will be cashless and only card payments will be accepted due to security risks associated with having money onsite.

The restaurant will be Reading's only purely vegan restaurant and will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner menus on a sit down basis as well as some fresh grab and go options for breakfast and lunch.

All of the food will be 100% plant based and only compostable packaging will be used meaning there will be no plastic in sight.

Vegivores first started trading at markets and street food events in 2017 and has also sold food at Reading FC.

It was set up by Mr Farrell who wanted to provide people with a wider variety of vegan food following a change in his own lifestyle.
