Heather Mills to open new café branch in central Brighton

Heather Mills plans to open a branch of VBites in East Street, Brighton

Heather Mills plans to open a branch of VBites in East Street, Brighton

First published in News by

Heather Mills looks set to open the second branch of her vegan café in Brighton.

The former model opened the first VBites venue in the former Big Fish Café at Hove Lagoon in July 2009.

Despite the park café not opening in the winter and receiving mixed reviews, it appears Paul McCartney’s former wife wants to spread her wings and expand her fledgling business in Brighton and Hove.

A licence has been issued for VBites to trade in the former Aloka spa and café store in East Street, Brighton.

This means, once refurbishment is complete, the café could freely operate.

According to information presented to Brighton and Hove City Council, the second floor will be converted into a place for live music and educational films.

The restaurant will be restricted to the ground and first floors.

In the Hove Lagoon café, meals range from meat substitute burgers and New York-style hotdogs to Mrs Swirly dairy-free soft scoop ice-creams.

Love affair

Many dishes feature meat substitutes made from plant-based ingredients from Redwood, Ms Mills’ food company.

Within a month, it was claimed between 700 and 1,000 vegan products were being sold at the cafe every day.

When launching her café, Ms Mills said: “I’ve always had a love affair with food, ever since I began cooking when I was nine.”

Aloka spa and café closed suddenly in September when a notice was put up in its window.

Mike Booth, chairman of parent company Aura Soma Products, said he was planning to open a new spa in the city but he was tight-lipped on where it will be and when it will open.

Transferred

Brighton and Hove City Council confirmed that the licence has now been transferred.

There are no restrictions on the opening time. However, recorded music can only be performed from 8am to midnight.

Alcohol can only be sold from midday to midnight, Monday to Saturday.

These are both restricted to 11.30pm on Sunday.

Ms Mills was unavailable to comment at the time of The Argus going to print.

Whist I wish Ms Mills success with her new venture in Brighton, I feel I have to grumble about the 'cafe' in Hove Lagoon.

We used to take the children down to the Lagoon in the autumn / winter and have a a nice steaming mug of tea & cake and treat the kids to some chips or something similar.

In the summer when we visited, they looked forward to ice creams. We visited VBites once to give it a chance. It looked very nice, but was very expensive and unappealing - I don't want to pay through the nose for a cup of tea with soya milk. I am not alone, I don't meet my friends there any longer if we are out for lunch. We prefer Hove & Buckingham Parks. Such a shame that this cafe is located in this popular park.

The Lagoon cafe is only open six months of the year, hardly dedicated to the vegan cause. To educate people to veganism on a part time basis is an insult to this prime located cafe, some consistancey in a belief is key.

This cafe should serve the community 365 days a year and if anything without the cafe the Lagoon gets used less by the people it is meant to serve.


Give up the Lagoon Heather, V Bites is more suited to the high street and I am sure you will do much better there.

I totally agree with the previous comments. The Lagoon Cafe is a council owned community asset and as such should be available to the community throughout the year as it always was previously. Although I admire the ethics of vegans, how can a community asset be allowed to shut for half the year and only cater for a tiny proportion of the community when it is open. Sadly I fear it's primarily a vanity project used by Heather to wow her 'right on' American friends. A sad loss to the community of Hove. I questioned her on it once and she asked how she was supposed to create a business plan that coped with our winters. I suggested she ask The View who seem to manage perfectly well even with a fairly average 'offer'.

Absolutely agree. The food is bland and over priced. What annoys me the most is that for some reason, if we as a family want to buy food at the Lagoon, we're forced to buy vegan food.

I don't have an issue if people want to be vegan but I do object to a cafe of that kind having a monopoly in a family play area like Hove Lagoon. We no longer spend any money there and take a picnic instead so I guess Ms Mills loss is Sainsburys gain.

Hasn't she wasted enough of Sir Pauls money on pointless/tasteless ventures.
Why doesn't she just sell up and move somewhere else (far away)where they might appreciate her sort?
Does anybody in Brighton/Hove/Sussex actually like her? Really?

I think she deserves praise for taking over the big fish cafe on hove lagoon that was run down and a bit grubby. shame it is only open 6 months and she chose such a vile colour scheme, a muted driftwood seaside feel would have been better but hey ho the food is good and why should vegans not be catered for. hove lagoon has other cafes close by, blue lagoon bar, windsurf hut, lindas cafe and tiffanys on Kingsway etc. She has a lot of fun days on the lagoon for the community during the summer including music and kids events and a dog show. some people clearly just want to slag vbites off because they have no taste. what spoilt the lagoon from a peaceful place to be was the ugly skate park and all the mess it makes. good luck heather.

Oh dear. Your opposition of the skate park, somewhere the children of today are able to gather safely to enjoy a creative and healthy activity, rather than sitting in front of the tv or video game or loitering the streets says all we need to know about you I'm afraid. However bad the previous incarnation of the cafe was, it was a hugely popular Mecca for families and other locals. Regardless of however many 'fun' events hosted by it now, it's current popularity shows you're firmly in the minority. (Thankfully)

It is only open in the summer because it is only allowed to be open in the summer. It is in the middle off the lawn so there isn't a lot of lighting. If they were to open when it gets darker quicker they were told they would have to pay for extra lighting, which would cost a lot of money. I wish her luck and will certainly be visiting this new one.

The previous cafe might have needed a face lift but it was always busy because it served reasonably priced food that people wanted. Vbites serves a minority of people. Why can't it serve all types of food. The ice cream is awful and expensive - thankfully there's usually an ice cream van near by selling proper ice cream.

Your opposition to the skate park is at best bizarre and at worse ignorant. My kids always love to stop and watch the skaters and it's encouraged them to both go skating - a good healthy sport. Unfortunately too many old stick in the muds think it's some type of yob sport.

I think most of the anger directed at Ms Mills is because it is generally thought that she married Paul for the money, tricking him, and escaping with a generous settlement. We'll never know if that is what happened, but whatever did, she's made her pile, and she's investing it how she sees fit. She's thinks she's made herself an achiever by what she has done, same as the Spice girls and countless other greedy and not overly talented people have. Let them get on with it. In the end, they know what they are.

Those of us who want to avoid animal cruelty will frequent the place knowing that we are in the company of kind individuals who don't mock the afflicted. Soya milk is great .

Compared to you Heather is an angel,
Is their something in the veggie diet that makes some, not all, veggies pompous, holier-than-thou and a conviction that the moral high ground is controvertibly theirs?

The only thing that I dislike about this story is that it is there. Apart from being a gold-digger who was once maried to someone famous I have no idea who this woman is, or why the Argus is giving her free advertising. It doesn't do that to anyone else who opens a restaurant, do they. I can understand if it's someone famous, even Dermot O'Leary but Mills?

Just as an aside, if veggie food is so great and meat is so evil why do you call veggie food after meat - veggie burger, veggie sausage, even veggie bacon sandwich ffs. I would have though that you would want to distance yourself from the evils of meat as far as possible. After all, I don't tuck into a steak and pretend it's a carnivore carrot!

I'm not a veggie but eat a decent amount of veggie food and her offerings doesnt really hit the mark .... why give a poor meat substitute ... just makes me want the meat dish more ... if I'm going to eat vegan or veggie I want to eat something to change mind with interesting flavours ....

Vegetarians live longer than meat eaters, unless they get caught up in an argument with the wrong person about men growing large breasts because of the additives in meat.

Will they be serving veggie horse meat or the real thing? The supermarkets refused to sell horse meat...and look where that got us.

One of the meat is murder brigade.
No it isn't murder. Murder is the unlawful killing of one HUMAN by another HUMAN.
Killing animals for food is just that - but it isn't murder.
That's why no one takes you lot seriously. Using inaccurate language to make some ill conceived point.

How incredible , given all the failings happening in this City of ours , that people have time and effort on their hands to unload/upload,whats best describe as vitriol regarding this subject ! Nobody bats an eyelid at all the high street shops that have closed down or the independent shops that have gone bust. I recall the first 2 winters that vbites stayed open throughout the winter, anytime i visited with the dogs , i thought they must be crazy to stay open with the howling wind and rain blowing about, after 4pm in winter its pitch black down the lagoon, and people fear walking around the area,what dictate claims this to be a community asset ? is it one of the same assets that keep getting pulled down or sat empty for years on end, we PAY for those assets,but nothing gets said about them, Vbites,i assume pay their rent, if not i would have thought BHCC would have thrown them out .
Moving to East street seems to me to be a great business move on there part, at least there they can operate the menu they want to, after all in was the hotdog and chips brigade at the lagoon who insisted they adapte their menu to a version of cafe fry up food , instead of the well thought out good food/menus they started out with.
I am not a vegan or even a vegetarian
but i find it appalling that some people have left disparaging remarks on this issue , just because a person chooses to stand up for what they think is right or wrong , where are we living now, North Korea ?
Given the Sweeney Todd style issues regarding the burgers and ready meals you all seem so fond of,its about time we all started thinking more about where the meat is coming from,Horses today,god knows what animals it will be next !

Whereas lumping millions of people that you don't know anything about into one category, based solely on their diet, is a perfectly intelligent and rational attitude, isn't it?
