not clean vegan - Edit

Staying at the copthorne and wanted decent vegan grub. Highly rated on Happy Cow. Every thing on the menu is vegan but relies heavily on meat substitutes eg vegan “chicken” and not very ‘clean’. Heavily relies on deep fried food and not enough veggies. I ordered crispy crispy noodles and stir fry but pool of watery liquid at bottom of plate.

Pros: Lovely desserts but not sure how clean these are, , really reasonable price

Cons: not clean vegan

Delicious, Friendly, Well-Priced - Edit

We just had a lunch of satay sticks and crispy duck pancakes (Peking Duck). Both were great, and there was so much more variety on the menu that we would love to try some of the other dishes on offer - like the Fish and Chips. We are traveling and this was an oasis midway between the vegan epicenters of London and Brighton. Thoroughly recommended.

Pros: Price, Friendly staff, Great tasting dishes and varied menu

I can't stop going back! - Edit

I recently discovered this place through Happy Cow and I can't believe its been on my doorstep for almost a year. I have been travelling up to Brighton to get Vegan food just like this. The food is incredible and its excellent value you for money, only £6 for a huge huge burger and a large portion of chips. All the staff are very nice and I can never just make my mind up on what I want to eat as there is SO much choice. Will be back again very, very soon!

Pros: Food choice, Good Value, Nice vibe and friendly staff

Great for Crawley - Edit

About 10-15 min walk from Crawley station Loving Hut is the only vegan restuarant in Crawley. They offer a mix of Chinese and western starters and mains. There is also cake and pastries. A fridge full of cold drinks and freshly prepared juices. Plus tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

I have only managed to visit twice. The first time was with a local vegan group when they opened specially for us on a Sunday evening and we took over the whole place. We sampled lots of different starters the mains between us.

On my second visit I had an early dinner on the way to the Hawth theatre. I opted for the crispy 'duck' pancakes. I then treated myself to  a piece of delicious chocolate cake and a luxury hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows. I also grabbed a raspberry croissant for breakfast the next day. Great food, great value. I'm going to be visiting more often!

Pros: Delicious vegan Chinese food, Great cakes, Friendly staff

Vegan cafe - Edit

Vegan eating retreats branch out to local area. It is good to see vegan places getting closer and popping up in the local area. I enjoyed the vegan hot dog and smoothie and it's the first time I've seen the high quality Himalayan salt made available to add. I did not envisage Southgate being the first 100% vegan place in the fairly local area!

Pros: 100% vegan, Hot vegan food/ healthy smoothies, Himalayan salt

Cons: Expensive, Can be hard to find, Cramped

Love it! - Edit

I walk a dog on behalf of someone and have been walking past this cafe since it opened a few months ago. Today I finally went in to try it out and I absolutely loved it! I had the vegan hot dog and chips to go, so I ate it when I got home and was so impressed. The smell was floating around my car on the way and was making me so hungry!
I will be back again very soon, I want to try the nuggets and fish n chips as well as some of the tofu dishes. I think even my meat-eater husband will enjoy!

Pros: Varied menu, Clean, First of it's kind in Crawley

Cons: I have no complaints!

incredible food, friendly staff :) - Edit

Delicious food, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Came here with my Dad, we had the dim sum platter which was delicious, the satay skewers, v chicken ball and v fish were so similar to the animal version I would be fooled if I didn't know it was a vegan restaurant! Dumplings and spring roll also delicious, as was the cheesecake! Best vegan cheesecake I've ever tasted. Also smoothie was delicious too :) very very impressed! Thank you Loving Hut!

Pros: Food , Atmosphere , Staff

Cons: Please start selling a recipe book!

Wow! - Edit

Live and work locally - popped in for a bit of lunch and to pick up some cakes for work.

Lovely venue, lovely people and amazing food!

I suggest the Vfish and chips - how do they get the tofu to taste like fish? So incredible!

I really hope this place is a success, first of it's kind in Crawley!

Cons: None, None, None

A little vegan gem in Crawley - Edit

We were delighted to find this eatery right here in Crawley. Finding vegan food in Crawley is challenging, but having The Loving Hut open here is fantastic. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, the place is small, but clean and comfortable. The selection on offer is great, and we'll certainly come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner quite often.

Nice Food, Lovely People - Edit

We're over the moon to have a 100% Vegan place within half an hour of us! We tried a few dishes when we visited. It was nice, but the mock meats weren't to our taste, but the other options, including tofu, are great. The staff are friendly, and the cake is divine!

Pros: 100% Vegan, Vegan Cake, Lots Of Choice

Cons: Lots Of Fake Meat, Location Isn't The Best
