A foodie’s guide to the best organic restaurants in London
Aprés Food Co., Clerkenwell
Founder Catherine Sharman knows that certain food has the power to leave you feeling amazing. It’s for this reason the restaurant only uses natural and nutrient rich, organic ingredients, locally sourced, to create its versions of comfort food.
Additionally you won’t find any gluten or refined sugar on the menu. The lemon & thyme roast chicken and butternut squash risotto is like a big hug on a cold day. Pretty ‘food friend’ cards are given out with bills offering information and guidance.
With whitewashed walls and hanging plants, you could easily spend all afternoon here.
Daylesford, Notting Hill, Marylebone & Pimlico
Serving food from its own organic, sustainable farm in the Cotswolds, all Daylesford products have certification from the Soil Association. Its ‘Eat To Be Healthy’ dishes are created with a resident nutritionist to ensure dishes are balanced.
Supercharge your mornings with the 4-seed omega bircher topped with some goji berries and cultured milk kefir. In the evening, you’ll find fresh salads peppered with award-winning chicken, beef and cheese.
With 35 years’ experience of organic farming, that’s what you call farm to fork.
Radio Alice, Hoxton & Clapham
No, it’s not a radio station but a pizzeria. And things are done a little differently here. The light, crispy pizza bases are created by using a sourdough mother yeast or ‘starter’ and a blend of ancient organic stoneground flour.
This is left to ferment for 24 hours, and then baked without toppings to create natural air pockets. The result? A more easily digestible pizza.
The menu is updated often using seasonal ingredients from organic producers here and in Italy. You’ll love the unusual flavour combos – think Prosciutto di Parma with Burrata and orange oil.
