Lunch Box 4.jpg

Vegan and vegetarian lunch bar. Hot dishes, salads, cake, hot and cold drinks. Rotating menu with new dishes added regularly. Take away or eat in.

3 Church Lane (lane past Reikers shoe shop, off Barnstaple High Street).

Owners: Jake Slee and Sam Pascoe


Actions to date (to remove single-use plastics):

  • Paper bags

  • Vegware coffee cups and takeaway containers

  • No plastic bottles sold – all cans or glass bottles

  • Cutlery all wooden.

  • Recycle cans, glass, cardboard.

Working on:

  • Considering either a discount or donation to charity for customers who bring their own reusable coffee cups. Will advertise when the decision’s made!

  • Happy to offer free drinking water refills and sign up to Refill Devon scheme.

  • Looking for better options to dispose of food waste, which is currently going into general waste, due to limited storage.

Lots of people are going vegan or vegetarian for environmental reasons, so it made perfect sense for us to focus on environmentally friendly containers – it’s good for the environment and good for business.
