Not only was the food barely edible but the staff tried to overcharge us an "entry fare" without telling us in advance. Out of 15 people there, 11 had a main and the others only had dessert. The owner wanted to make them pay the price of a main even though they didn't have it. I do not recommend this... More

At the outset, let me tell you that I am a confirmed carnivore. So, to eat in a purely vegetatrian restaurant is not a prospect that I relish. It was with some considerable trepidation that I entered the Bonnington Café. The place has been tastefully designed to look like a hippy establishment from the late 1960s. I liked it. The... More

a wonderful vegetarian cafe that changes it's chef daily. you can go online to see who will be cooking and text the chef to make a reservation. the food was absolutely lovely and very reasonably priced. we had fresh watermelon juices, curries, and veggie bowls. the decor is homely and outside seating out the back. would definitely go again.

Came here for dinner for two. Got there around 8 and there were around 5 tables available in the room. After getting in and no one talking to me I asked one of the servers if she had a table for two. She immediately asked me without a good evening or anything " did you book?" I said no because... More

Bonnington is like a home away from home. Only a five minute walk from Vauxhall station, you never know who you'll meet or what you'll eat, and that's the joy! Don't forget to text in advance - even on a freezing Wednesday night, the place was rammed. There's no better "restaurant" in the area to get a sense of South... More

It was lovely to book a table by text and wait for the chef to text back to confirm the booking! Knowing that there is a different chef every day made it feel exclusive and very original. It is a delightful restaurant, simple and charming. The menu was limited but good and we could have brought our own wine if... More

This was such a great recommendation from the daughter of a friend - tucked away in a little gem of a street off the Oval. It was bustling and full, there was a choice of two menus, both vegan. The food was lovely, homely, tasty. I could imagine popping in here pretty regularly if I lived nearer as it has... More

Met a friend here for dinner last night. Decent food but not worth a trip out of the way. The service is also terrible, as a friend warned me before I went. The menu is limited and you don't know what it will be until you arrive. You can only make reservations through text or email, not phone. Cash only... More

Bonnington Square is worth a visit in itself. An oasis in the middle of Vauxhall, where residents have planted the most beautiful square gardens and around every tree along the pavement. This atmospheric little vegetarian restaurant, set on the ground floor of one of the houses, serves delicious, reasonably priced vegetarian food. V small menu cooked by a different chef... More
