Great vegan junk food. Tiny venue. - Edit

The burgers are amazing and it's really cheap. The cocktails were lovely but took ages to be made. I think the staff may have been learning. The biggest downside for me was the space is tiny and it's really hard to eat perched on a side shelf. It was crowded and we kept being jostled when we were eating. It's also way too loud for the size of the venue.

Pros: Great vegan burgers, Cocktails , Cheap

Cons: Too small with poor seating , Too loud

Pub for vegetarians - Edit

The Full Nelson is more a pub than anything else, yet they still manage to make the effort to offer a creative and fairly varied menu. Their burgers are definitely decent, the one I had was called "Colonel" - it was quite a classic composition with not much funkyness, but very tasty patty with a fantastic consistency - not sure what it was made of but it seemed like a combo of seitan and soy and played well together with the sauces. They also have a decent beer collection to offer.

Good for when you fancy vegan junk food but doesn’t make you feel great after (a little greasy) and the staff are rude

Delicious kai! - Edit

First experience of vegan food while visiting London and LOVED it. The OG burger was one of the best vegan burgers I've had, the mac and cheese was amazing and the loaded fries were so tasty. Unfortunately a few options weren't unavailable. Highly recommend. Great atmosphere and staff.

Pros: Food, Staff

Simply the BEST! - Edit

Full Nelson have the best burgers, hands down, in London! Me and my partner are really big on vegan junkfood and honestly full nelson is simply the best. Yes, there isn't much choice compared to many other pubs and bars and yes, the place is small, but why make it complicated when you are doing the absolute best of what you are doing. The burgers all have different oomph and the sides are all so tasty too. Especially the colonel burger and cauliflower side is just heavenly! the whole menu can be veganised as well as the cocktails which are really amazing. Highly recommend the vegan white russian, so good! The atmosphere is pretty cool, staff are nice and food is quick, delicious and prices are mid-range.

The full nelson is in Deptford, so if you aren't local be warned, the isn' much to do afterwards, so you basically would be coming into the area just for the food experience, which in my opinion is so totally worth it, unless you have something else planned. There are some funky pubs up the road, but that's about it. About 15-20 mniute walk to Greenwich though.

Pros: Exceptional value for money, Tastiest food I've had

Cons: Small venue, Not much to do in the immediate area afterwards

great food - Edit

Been here for brunch (chicken and waffles is great) and dinner - the colonel burger, cheese sticks and deep fried Oreo were fantastic.

Cosy pub feel - Edit

Unfortunately on the day and time we went there (Saturday at 1.15pm) they were only serving two burgers from the main menu, both of the chicken ones. Most disappointing that we didn't have the choice. The burger was ok, fries were good.

Good food but limited menu - Edit

The burgers and stuff are all great, basically the same lineup as Waiting Room used to do. I wish they did more stuff - I'd take friends a lot more often if they did a simple salad bowl / taco / etc - just something a bit different

The Best Place for Vegan Burgers! - Edit

We went out of our way to try The Full Nelson when we were in London this past August ... And were we ever glad we did. The vegan burgers were awesome, the staff friendly and a decent selection of beers. All vegetarian with vegan substitutes for everything ... Yes, it's a tiny venue, so beware ... But that does add to the charm ... Of course, you can do what we did, and get there when they open! They're just two blocks from the Deptford Bridge DLR station. If in London, don't miss the opportunity to visit The Full Nelson!

Pros: All vegetarian w/ vegan substitutes for everything, Friendly folks!, Puppy-dog greetings!

Cons: Tiny venue, Kinda out of the way (but close to DLR station), There's not a Full Nelson in Seattle! (Booo)

Amazing food - Edit

The Full Nelson is an amazing place to eat if you are vegan. The whole menu is available as meat-eater or vegan equivalent. Even the BBQ ribs can come as a vegan alternative which I've never tried.

Everything I have tried so far is delicious, and I would highly recommend. Even my meat-eater friends like the vegan meat alternative burgers, that's how good they are.

Pros: Delicious food, so much choice, Cheap prices, high quality

Cons: The restaurant itself is tiny, Not open everyday, so check opening times

I just wish more places were like this...

JUST GOOD - Edit

I am so happy this place opened! It is some of the best vegan junk food I have had in a very long time. The 'cheese' they use is so creamy and good! The burgers are ace, but I personally like the amazing sandwich they do the most.

Everything is super filling and cocktails are nice too!

Can't wait to go back!

Pros: good, vegan , food

vegan options - Edit

Best burger I've had so far. Amazing food, just be prepared wait a little for space to eat as venue is on the small side. But brilliant experience nevertheless. The hour and a half journey in London traffic was worth it

A veggie/vegan bar with good food! - Edit

Amazing vegan junk food, all items can be veganised properly (substitution not elimination) and taste great.
There is vegan wine available and staff were friendly and atmosphere was relaxed.
Will definitely come here again for food or drinks (or both)!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Great atmosphere, Lots of drinks (including vegan wine and milky coc

Cons: End of night, short on menu items.
