Strut & Cluck (Mediterranean, Shoreditch) DirectionsBooking – Menu

You said: “Each dish was so full of flavour! Had a great range of both veggie and non veggies dishes but in fact (even as meat eaters) we were drawn to the earth (vegetarian) section of he menu far more.” What we love: Their signature dish is the roasted cauliflower and you can’t really go there without having it.

OXO Tower Restaurant (Modern European, South Bank) DirectionsBooking – Menu

You said: “They’ve got a designated veggie menu so worth asking for it. Fantastic view!” What we love: You can’t really beat the view and atmosphere.

German Gymnasium (German, King’s Cross) DirectionsBooking – Menu

You said: “Incredible venue, in an old 1860s German Gymnasium. Stunning architecture and interior.” What we love: Their “Schupfnudeln with truffles and young vegetables” is a super tasty and typically German dish. Hard to find such good German veggie food. Ask for the vegetarian menu (it’s separate, but it’s worth it!)
