must come back - Edit

I am the biggest fan of burgers. And these are on the very top of my favourites.
Shame they don't serve fries, the ingredients were cold and the burgers not warm enough but the taste and texture was amazing.

Pros: amazing taste

Cons: cold ingredients, no fries

Great option in Borough Market - Edit

I had the classic cheeseburger - it was good, all the condiments were delicious, as well as the patty itself. The vegan cheese though - not so much, just your usual funky looking vegan cheese that gets all gloopy when you eat it. If I came back again I would definitely go for the classic burger instead.

Best burger I have ever had! - Edit

This burger is so good, it is arguably better than the famous “Temple of seitan” burger which you must have heard about. Highly recommend it!

Just go eat it, now! 😊

Pros: delicious, fairly priced

Cons: none

decent - Edit

A good option for a lunch on the go. I had the facon burger which was £7.50 to takeout.
Staff were nice and the burger was okay, a good size with a lot on it, but nothing standing out. I think they could improve by having a tastier roll and not trying to do too much.
Worth a visit

Pros: staff, location, quick

Great tasting burgers - Edit

Available at various markets across London, I checked out the Big V burger stall at borough market. They have five burger options. I went for the Classic V Cheeseburger at £6.50 - totally delicious, decent size, finished this off quickly as couldn't stop eating it.

BEST BURGERS - Edit

You probably won't find better burgers in London, or anywhere, for that matter. My husband (vegetarian) and I (vegan) came here at 10:00am on a Saturday after just having breakfast and after looking at their stall we had to have some! They were quick with service and after taking the first bite my husband told me if he could eat their cheese every day he'd go vegan. It was so good that if you took meat eaters they probably wouldn't be able to tell!

Pros: Delicious!!!

Cons: none

Proper burgers! - Edit

Went here just as the market opened so no queues, my fakon cheese burger looked every bit as big and fat as the examples on the counter, loaded with sauces, filling and flavour. Have avoided going to Borough Market since becoming vegan due to memories of it being entirely meat and cheese based, so this stall is such a welcome addition. They even do the biggest sausage sandwich I've ever seen which I shall be trying on my next visit. If they start selling beer, they might never get rid of me!

Pros: Amazing burgers!

Cons: Small menu

I also had a portion of salad which was liber half warm cooked vegetables and also very yummy. easily one of the best burgers I've had anywhere in 24 years being vegan.

Pros: totally vegan, good value, hearty portions

Cons: may be a big queue

Really good vegan burgers - Edit

Have been here a few times now, tried all the burgers, they are all really good, great taste and the quality of the ingredients shows, I also like the option to have burger with salad instead of bread, and recently had their xmas special roast with gravy which was delicious. The staff are friendly and jovial too.

Pros: High quality, Friendly service

Awesome vegan burgers - Edit

Love how these guys are now fully vegan and offer gluten free options and buns! I had the Cheesey V and it was super cheesey and delicious. Will definitely be back for another one of these! They also offer salad boxes and burgers made with beans or seitan. Was great to see a huge queue for the only fully vegan stall at Borough market!

Pros: Vegan , Gluten free

Very nice food - Edit

Loved the burger, very nice stall and great that it's all vegan. Really enjoyed the food. However, I'm knocking off 1 star for hygiene reasons. The staff use disposable gloves as they make contact with the food (which is great) but they use the same gloves to handle money (really really bad). Coins and notes are riddled with germs as they pass so many hands and never really get cleaned. Please be more hygienic and do not use food preparation gloves to handle money.

Pros: Tasty food, Great choices

Cons: Food preparation gloves are used to handle money

Jillianengle 08 Jan 2017 - So sorry to hear one of staff used their money glove to serve you! We have strict rules regarding money handling and gloves but seems someone slipped up this time ... hope you'll come back again x

amazing! - Edit

I discovered this amazing little burger bar in the middle of borough marked. They offer a selection of 4 burgers, they're delicious and well made and ALL vegan. It's a take away place, with no seating but in a beautiful marked with a lot of vegan options. This place is worth a visit!
Ppsssssst: other shops have vegan cupcakes as a selection for dessert.. Delicious!

Pros: delicious food , tasty , all vegan

Cons: no where to sit
