The Aquadrome, Frogmoor Lane, Rickmansworth, England, WD3 1NB

Serves meat, vegan options available. Cafe serving simple food with some dairy-free and gluten-free choices. Could ask to switch cheese for hummus. Selection of teas and juices too. The company has a pro-sustainability ethic. Its other location at Pound Lane, Higginson Park, Marlow had shut down (2014). Open Mon-Sun 9:00am-5:00pm.

Lovely setting - Edit

Inviting cooking smells waft over a corner of the Aquadrome in Rickmansworth enticing walkers into this warming place. Inside is spacious but can get crowded and noisy. There is a nicely decorated ‘quiet room’ but it can get a bit stuffy. There is also outside seating with beautiful lakeside views however I am disappointed that they have replaced the more comfortable tables and chairs on the terrace with mainly long wooden tables and hard benches – no longer a comfortable place to linger over coffee or lunch. Good selection of vegetarian dishes, vegan options are available on request. Homemade falafel and humus are especially good.

Pros: Beautiful setting, Tasty homemade food, good vegetarian selection

Cons: Could make more of outdoor seating area

delicious vegan options - Edit

This lovely cafe at the Aquadrome in Rickmansworth is definitely worth a visit. I've been a few times and there are always vegan options. I emailed them before going to check what was vegan so I was prepared to ask for what i wanted without all the questions and checking with the chefs etc.
It's an eco friendly, sustainable, local-food cafe that blends in with the natural area of woods and lakes.
The falafel open sandwich was delicious; the menu doesn't mention there is houmous spread on the sour dough, I only found out when I asked them to exchange the (non vegan) harissa for houmous. The falafel was really scrummy, and homemade.
The park salad and bean stew are also vegan, just switch the harissa for houmous or falafel.
The chips are cooked in the same fryer as the chicken nuggets, which are coated in yogurt and polenta so some veggie/vegans may be ok with that.
It can get very busy at certain times so best to get there early or late if you want to be served quickly.

Pros: quiet room, vegan options, friendly staff

Cons: none
