Two restaurants have been recognised for having some of the best vegan fish and chips in the UK.

The No Catch Co in Kings Road, Brighton, made it on The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation's list of places which serve the best vegan fish and chips.

The list, in aid of National Fish and Chip Day on June 6, praised the restaurant for its menu offerings, including its battered vegan fish and smoked haddock.

The restaurant, which serves only vegan food, was also praised for its popcorn prawns, lemon shrimp, and vegan calamari.

PETA’s director of vegan corporate projects Dawn Carr said: "The No Catch Co.’s fabulous vegan fish is a real catch that celebrates the sea without harming the animals who live there.

"PETA’s top picks will help people see food differently, and we’re calling on caring individuals everywhere to leave the violence of the fishing industry in the past by enjoying some delicious, hearty vegan seafood.”

The second Brighton restaurant listed by PETA is the Earth and Stars in Windsor Street, which has also been praised for its vegan fish and chips.

Other restaurants that made it on the list across the UK are Harbour Lights in Falmouth and Seabreeze Fish and Chips in North Yorkshire.
