Brighton’s favourite zero waste pre-industrial food system café – in fact it’s the only one – has recently expanded its opening hours having been granted an extended late licence.

Having not been to Silo previously it struck me as a very utilitarian space. The décor may not be to everyone’s taste – anything even slightly decadent would be missing the point – but certainly has its own style. I took a seat at the bar – fashioned from salvaged materials of course – and hoped that the food would be slightly more indulgent than my surroundings.
