A Jamaican restaurant, bar, and music venue in south London has announced it will be going fully vegan for three months -starting today.

Buster Mantis, in Deptford, revealed the news in a Tweet.

The venue will work with Denai Moore, a musician and founder of Jamaican vegan food brand, Dee's Table for the collaboration.

Vegan announcement

The post said: "Morning all, big announcement: from tonight and for the next three months, we’re going 100 percent vegan.

"From the amazing response to the pop-ups, we’ve decided to collaborate with @DenaiMoore for a plant-based take on the Jamaican food that we’ve known and loved our whole lives. Come try?"

This latest vegan venture follows previous vegan pop-ups.

The eatery teamed up with Denai Moore for an August Bank Holiday event.

The popular menu offered dishes like brown stew -braised aubergine, mushrooms and okra, with gungo rice and peas, and the escovitch 'fish' burger - a jackfruit-based burger, with spring onion aioli and hot pickle.
