The Fields Beneath pride themselves making tasty plant-based food.  The original site opened in 2012 in Kentish Town and they’ve recently expanded to Camden Town. Despite the bright yellow “vegan” sign outside, you’ll discover that the food is bang up to date and offers much more than lentils.

The setting

The Fields Beneath is close to the bustle of Camden market.  It’s quite small inside with just a bench and a table. On a sunny day, the main window table is a sun trap and a few bright yellow trunks serve as benches out the front.

It is the perfect midday spot to enjoy lunch or an afternoon coffee and cake.

The fresh juice test

The Fields Beneath don’t do juices. They pride themselves on their coffee and they also have a great range of vibrant kombuchas in flavours like Triple Ginger and Strawberry Tulsi. Plus, they have a range of teas and homemade golden milk and chai lattes – so there’s something for everyone.

What we ate

The menu changes daily as The Fields Beneath pride themselves on using locally produced foods and eating with the seasons. They champion Hertfordshire grown lentils and British grown fava beans and use  a UK-based oat milk. On the day we went, there were two lunch wraps to choose from – we decided to review the kebab wrap which was served toasted and a side salad. It was filled with oyster mushrooms, tomatoes and a creamy tzatziki.

In addition, we also had the lentil-filled “sausage” roll with mustard. It had thin and flaky pastry outside and a tasty filling. However, the star of the savoury show had to be the large slice of roasted vegetable farinata served warm.

It was packed with flavour and the fava bean flour added a great texture to the soft vegetables.

You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to dessert. They all look delicious and they’re all freshly made in house. We chose the warm apple crumble slice, on the manager’s recommendation, and it was amazing. Spiced with cinnamon, with tender apple pieces and a sweet “buttery” crumble top, it came served with cream and was the perfect dessert.

We also had the chocolate brownie which was rich with cacao and had a really gooey consistency thanks to the prunes and banana chunks. It was also filled with coconut for added texture. It was the best brownie I’ve had in a long time.

What we’d go back for

The apple crumble slice and the promise of the brand new tahini brownies.
