Heather Mills’s seaside vegan cafe in East Sussex has been closed for the winter.
VBites has been open in Hove since July last year but announced it will be shutting down for the winter period “to focus on staff training, recipe development and VBites franchising”.
Sir Paul McCartney’s ex-wife refurbished the former fish restaurant last year and developed a wholly vegan and largely organic menu using meat substitutes with her team of chefs.
The cafe, which is next to Hove Lagoon and a large children’s play area, stayed open all of last winter and has been open seven days a week during the summer period.
It was deserted on Friday with bars on the windows and signs posted on the doors announcing its closure, but with no details of when it will reopen.
