I find it hard to love Weston. There’s has been millions of pounds of investment in the sea front, but you only have to move back a few streets and it is still very run-down and tired.

However, if you persevere, there are still some pockets of loveliness that can be found. Recently, I found myself there with some time to kill so decided to try Loves, which is a veggie-vegan place with great reviews…. and also shut the day I visited! So, where next?

I had been to Bistrot Pierre previously and had a perfectly acceptable salad so thought I would cut my losses and head there. If nothing else, it has fabulous views over the seafront and a nice chilled vibe.

The menu was a pleasant surprise with a few vegan options available that were also more intriguing than the usual felafel burger and mushroom risotto. I opted for the Miso Roasted Aubergine. This came with beetroot hummus and tabbouleh, garnished with pomegranate seeds.

The aubergine was soft and lightly spicy with the miso. The pomegranate worked perfectly and I am definitely stealing that idea! It;s just so nice to see the vegan option prepared with the same care. Just PLEASE stop giving sorbet as the only dessert option!

Vegan options: Three mains on the menu and pretty good ones – 4/5
Ambience: Nice chilled vibe, excellent service – 4/5
Value for money: 2 courses £12.95 – 4/5
