Now fully vegan, this 1968-vintage Primrose Hill outfit can claim to be Europe’s oldest veggie restaurant, and is still co-owned by musician Roger Swallow of the Albion Band, long-time resident in LA. The food has had its ups and downs over the decades and is nowadays mostly (if not uniformly) rated “enjoyable and tasty”, even by reporters “neither vegetarian nor vegan”. It closed for major refurbishments in summer 2019.

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”.
