The Barley Mow, Englefield Green

This charming pub sits right on the green in Englefield Green and just a stone’s throw from Great Winsdor Park. And while the menu is French-influenced and features plenty of meat and fish options, the vegetarian and dishes are imaginative and original – things like jackfruit fritters, pea and broadbean salad and a vegetarian mezze. There’s also a specialist gluten free, dairy free and allergens menu.

Eat your greens! Get your vegetarian fix at any one of these brilliant restaurants or cafés across Surrey for National Vegetarian Week.
More than a quarter of the main menu at Pho is vegan.

Pho, Guildford and Kingston and Wimbledon

Pho – pronounced Fuh – is the Vietnamese national dish, a rice noodle bowl served with loads of herbs. At the restaurant Pho, the dish comes with tofu or mushrooms, or both (as well as fish and options). Elsewhere on the menu there are plenty of plant-based choices including the hot and spice soups, the super green and spicy green ‘house special’ broths, and veggie stirfries and Vietnamese salads.

V Café at the Institute, Guildford

It’s vegetarian and vegan fare all the way at V Cafe, which you’ll find at the Guildford Institute right in the centre of town. The menu changes daily and ingredients are seasonal and locally sourced. Expect fresh soups, vegetable frittata, filo parcels as well as cakes and pastries. The café reopens on 2 June.

•••

Riverside Vegetaria, Kingston

It’s all in the name – and as well as fabulous veggie food you’ll also get a stunning riverside location. All dishes are homemade from fresh ingredients that are mostly organic, and as well as a veggie and vegan food, they cater to gluten and wheat-free diets. The menu is extensive and includes organic wines and beers.

The Giggling Squid, Weybridge, Reigate, Esher, Guildford, Farnham, Kingston, Wimbledon

Starting life in a tiny fisherman’s cottage in Brighton back in 2002, Giggling Squid began with a simple idea: to cook ‘simple, rustic, fresh Thai food’ and now has outposts across the country, including seven in our area. The restaurant has a special evening vegan menu which includes a selection of stir fries and curries, plus a very reasonable vegetarian set tapas lunch for under £10.

•••

On the menu at Fego: falafel and Isreaeli salad

Fego, Cobham and Banstead

Influenced by South African hospitality and design, this buzzy mini café chain has two outposts in Surrey, both of which offer a separate vegan menu to please your plant based needs. For breakfast get your fix with a smashed avo or a Brazilian açaí bowl and for lunch choose from superfood salads, falafel wraps and meatless patty burgers with all the trimmings.

•••

Cyder House Inn, Shackleford

This lovely country pub offers up great home cooked food. And while the menu offers meat and fish dishes, for vegetians and vegans the likes of grilled asparagus and shitake tacos, Vietnamese sticky tofu, asparagus arancini and vegetarian burgers should tickle your tastebuds. There’s also outdoor dining with a playground attached, so a great option for families.

•••

Wags n Tales, Surbiton and Twickenham

These cafes in Surbiton and Twickenham are – as the name suggests – super dog friendly. But as well as a special menu for Fido, the kitchen serves up a menu of mostly vegetarian fare including jackfruit and bean burgers, Mexican spiced tofu scramble and bean burrito.

•••

Saffron Summer, Chessington and Reigate

Not 100% vegetarian food, but plenty of veggie and vegan options on the menu including tandoori broccoli, courgette chana masala, vegetable samosas and more.

    This is great – I am visiting Kingston with my Mum in the next fortnight, this gives us some ideas of where to go outside of our usual places, thank you!

    I’d recommend Freedom Caffe in Whitehall, Cheam – veg and vegan cafe https://www.freedomcaffe.com/
    Also Sound Lounge in Sutton – vegan cafe in community centre https://www.thesoundlounge.org.uk/
