Lussmanns is founded on the fundamental belief that it’s possible to be ethical and profitable. What we’re trying to do is make sustainable dining accessible to everyone — providing a ‘classy but classless’, locals-driven alternative that consistently delivers great food, service and value to diners. Our aim is to promote sustainability almost ‘by stealth’ or, in the words of the Independent on Sunday, to be ‘ethical, delicious and preach-free’.
We are founder members of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, SRA 3 star champions and two-time winners of Sustainable Small Restaurant Group of the Year. Find out more about our great British suppliers.
