Expensive but tasty & stylish organic veggie spot
UPDATE: I heard some not so great news about this spot recently, so will have to retract my recommendation for now
Vegeterian / Vegan | NR | £££
Some people have accused Farmacy of being outrageously priced and it’s hard to argue with that when they’re charging 15 quid for a vegan burger – even if it is organic, that is steep. Also, it’s not like they are exactly ‘cooking’ complex dishes. However, for me all the dishes I had delivered on flavour; it’s a lovely comfortable and chic setting and the service is really warm (albeit a little slow) so I actually don’t mind parting with my hard earned cash.
BASIC OR BOUGIE? Ba-Bou
SERVICE IS Sleek, Casual, Friendly
TRY The Artichoke Pizzetta
GOOD FOR People Watching, Pram Pushers
GROUPS Up to 6 ppl
THE FULL SHEBANG
Farmacy is in Westbourne Grove opposite fancy furniture design shop SCP and about 50 metres from Space NK (for all you Space NK addicts out there like myself 😉 )
It’s a fairly large space with chic light green seating booths on the outer edge of the room and a lovely bar taking central position. Towards the back is a separate room which is used as their private dining space but which they can open up should it get busy and the space hasn’t been booked. There’s an abundance of foliage here and throughout the restaurant – it’s a look I adore in restaurants from Chiltern Firehouse to Blixen and across the pond in Paris at Alcazar. I just won’t ever get bored of this style.
