Amid the bustle of Berwick Street Market, an all-veggie haven of healthy eating.
Please note, Beatroot has now closed. Time Out Food editors, January 2019.
For a fast wholesome lunch, try this long-time favourite tucked next to the veg stalls of Berwick Street Market. Cartons come in three sizes, to be filled with a mix of tasty, freshly made salads and hot dishes (ten of each), on display behind a glass counter.
Stalwarts include creamy coconutty dahl, lentil and mushroom shepherd’s pie, organic rice salad with tamari soy sauce and seaweed, mini ‘sausage’ rolls or simple blanched broccoli – it’s surprising how much you can cram in. Most people take away, but there are a few seats in the shabbily colourful interior, beneath the bird mobiles and bulbous orange lampshade, and more on the pavement outside.
Friendly staff are kept busy chopping ingredients, replenishing dishes or whirring up juices and smoothies. Coffees and teas, vegan cakes (including hefty flapjacks made with hemp seed), and soft drinks by the likes of Purdey’s and Fentimans are also available.

Allergy sufferers beware! With a severe nut allergy I asked the girl behind the counter if any of the salads I was considering eating contained nuts, she went off to check and came back tell me that they did not. She was wrong and I later ended up in hospital. It is an establishment's responsibility to take such things seriously, if staff are not sure or have not checked they must say so,. This can be a case of life and death for some people.

I visited Beatroot on Berwick Street for lunch today and was a bit taken aback by the price of your salad boxes. I have eaten there many times before and the price had risen since the my last visit. I mentioned it to my friend and at that point a member of staff (not the one serving me) turned around, tutted and shook her head at me. The member of staff who was serving me then become very hostile with us, the other member of staff then appeared to be discussing what I'd said with other staff in the kitchen area. In response to this, I suggested to the lady that I could leave some feedback to her colleague along the lines of 'Can I just say if the price of a Medium box was £4.50 - £5 I would eat in here more often, but because its £6.20 that's out of my usual lunch price range'. To which she completely shut off and didn't even say thank you for the transaction. The whole experience left me feeling quite angry and actually very disappointed with a store that I have used regularly for the last few years. Surely a normal response would be for a manager to come over and explain the reasons for the price rise and listen to my comments?
