This place is amazing. The food is always so fresh and every time I go I am amazed at how good it tastes! I have taken non-vegan friends numerous times and they've been equally impressed at the standard of the food. Service is always great...More

My husband and I arrived at 8.30pm on a Friday evening, having had a drink the Calthorpe gardens bar nearby. The best food I had in Tokyo was at a small vegan cafe tucked away in a back street with nothing of interest nearby. Itadaki...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a

time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
