Waste not, want not


Welcome to the UK's first zero-waste restaurant

Silo is the UK’s first zero-waste restaurant, a title that comes with a weight of expectation in an age of mass consumption and a predilection for not always acting in the planet’s best interests.

The idea behind this Brighton-based enterprise is that nothing is wasted nor waste unnecessarily created — leftover food is composted, bills are emailed or texted to customers, all food is delivered to the restaurant in reusable containers and prepared on site, and the team even churns its own butter, rolls its own oats, mills its own flour and ferments its own grain.
