Harden's survey result
This “vegetarian and vegan place of pilgrimage” on Primrose Hill, which has logged 50 years to make it Britain’s longest-serving veggie, is now “so old it’s fashionable again”. “The menu is enticing and quantities are vast”, but when it comes to realisation, it’s perennially a case of hit and miss here.
From “exceptional” to “slightly off the boil” – the UK’s oldest veggie (Primrose Hill, 1968) perennially attracts inconsistent and fairly middling feedback. If you like meat-free food and are in north London give it a try, but it’s not a certain bet.
The UK’s oldest veggie has put in an up-and-down performance for the history of our guide, but reports do still mostly praise it for its “highly imaginative vegetarian cooking”.
The UK’s oldest veggie is an obscure little café in Primrose Hill; reports from its tiny fan club are all upbeat though – they say it’s “enjoying a new lease of life”, with “great vegan dishes”.
