Bonnington Cafe, Vauxhall

Have you ever been foraging? Considered vegetarianism? Bought food with Linda McCartney’s name on it? If so, you will love Bonnington Cafe. The community-run restaurant in a little residential street not far from Vauxhall is the London equivalent of Glastonbury’s Green Fields. Which means mostly vegan, reasonably priced, a bit inconsistent and full of middle-class hippies. The menu (and indeed the cuisine) on your visit will depend on which chef is volunteering that evening, so check the website to find out what you’re in for and book your spot; walk-ins are no-go.

My dinner (pictured up top) was made by Kamila, who is an excellent chef but very laid-back waitress. I’d have needed some sort of explosive to catch her eye I think. Even the fact I had to pay wasn’t enticing her over. But the meal was unusual, well-made and only £7, and as the Bonnington is BYO with no corkage fee, this is the cheapest proper sit down meal anywhere. That I know of. Just not suitable for those who can’t eat a meal that doesn’t involve meat, or those in a hurry.
