Bambuni – lovely café and deli opposite Nunhead Green – ask they will make a fantastic vegan sandwich, and they have soya milk
The Old Nun’s Head – serves vegan burgers every night and a nut roast on Sundays (you have to ask for no Yorkshire puddings).
Dish and Spoon – lovely vegan soup
The Rye Pub – had quite a nice vegan dish when we ate there recently – or possibly it was a modified veggie dish – a kind of stuffed aubergine thing.

I’m Holly, co-founder of EatMyWorld.com. Since selling my home to fund Eat My World I’ve been living a somewhat nomadic existence, travelling from place to place trying to raise awareness about supper clubs and attending at least 1 a week! This week I’ve been trying to follow a strictly vegan diet and have already failed twice – first I killed a mosquito without even thinking (sorry!) and then I noticed that the vitamin pills I’ve been chewing each day are made from bovine gelatine, tsk. Kudos to actual vegans, it takes real dedication!
This campaign will make Southwark residents healthier and reduce their impact on the environment.
