Places to eat with good wheelchair access
Fantastic vegetarian food is on offer at Vanilla Black, with not a Quorn burger in sight. Theyíre also happy to accommodate guide dogs, the restaurant is wheelchair accessible and there are disabled toilets.

Great restaurants for Vegetarians
Vanilla Black does the unthinkable: hearty British food minus the meat. Their glorious concoctions include things like poached egg with hickory smoked potato croquette and pineapple pickle. The restaurant also benefits from being ultra-stylish, and it's garnered the praise of food critics and veggies alike. In 2012 they opened sister site Orchard in Holborn.

London's best restaurants for vegans
Although Vanilla Black is a vegetarian restaurant, there is a separate menu for vegans. The only meat-free restaurant in London to be recommended in the Michelin Guide, this is the most haute cuisine option youíll find in the capital.

After visiting Vanilla Black a few years ago and really enjoying the experience, I was excited to revisit this weekend. Sadly it failed to live up to expectations; who spoils fudge by adding cardamom or adds an over-generous amount of salt to soup already salt-heavy with marmite? The tamarind paste totally overwhelmed the delicate Toasted Cauliflower Mille Feuille - what a shame!! Some positives did go some way to rectifying the situation; the setting is lovely, the bread was delicious and the Fried Mushroom Mousse and Rosemary Sauce was a real treat.. I hope I just caught it on an off-day.

A smallish restaurant away from the busy street, on arrival this place was beautifully laid out with simple, clean lines. The food was imaginative and delicious and seemed to fully satisfy even my carnivor friends who were with me. My only criticism would be that the main course was fairly small whilst the pudding though very tasty, was quite heavy (this was also the case with the other dishes that my friends ordered) - i think maybe some re-balancing would be good. Otherwise though I would rate this very highly and thoroughly enjoyed it.
