London’s Best Sustainable Restaurants And Bars

Eat and Drink Sustainable With These Top London Restaurants and Bars

As restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars begin to reopen to customers across London and the UK, and travel restrictions relax in parts of Europe, we’ve found you a selection of the top sustainable places to eat and drink in London this summer and beyond. These amazing venues put quality, fresh, local, responsibly sourced produce at the heart of their innovative menus. Some are vegan and some offer a range of delicious vegan dishes. And the vibe is pretty good too.

The post lockdown going out experience feels different to the restaurant and bar experience we remember and includes social distancing, sanitisation and check-in regulations. But you can be sure that the commitment to sourcing the highest quality organic products and making going out fun (as well as safe) remains a priority among our pick of the best eco restaurants and bars London has to offer.
