We recently visited Stem and Glory to celebrate my son's Birthday. He is the only vegan in the family but the rest of us thoroughly enjoyed the food too. I was a bit sad that the two particular dishes I would have chosen had already all been sold out at lunchtime. The winter vegetable bourgignon and the silk pie. They must have been very popular !

I took my vegan uncle here for Sunday roast and as a non vegan/vegetarian I wondered what I would make of it. However as soon as we opened the door and caught the gorgeous aromas I was won over. Absolutely delicious food, friendly welcoming staff and a casual and cosy ambience all added up to a great visit. Will definitely be going back.

Went there under recommendation from a friend and it proved to be accurate. The food was absolutely delicious, all the food is pre cooked and you just select what you want off the trays. You get around 4-5 different items 2 main and 3 side bits. I had the summer pie, lasagna, stuffed red peppers and 2 types of salad. Given it's a vegan restaurant made it a great place to take my girlfriend and visiting friend as they didn't have to worry about the contents of the food.

It was simply delicious and I was stuffed leaving the place. I'd happily eat their again great value for money. It's a fairly quiet venue suitable for general talking. 10/10 would go again.

Absolutely loved our meal at stem and glory. Very attentive staff, great wine and totally delicious beautifully presented food. The celeriac lasagne was literally one of the best things I have ever eaten. Great for vegans, vegetarians or anyone who appreciates great food. Would definitely return. It is quite a casual but intimate and lovely location- not huge amount of seating so make sure you book.

Delicious food and beautiful presentation. Brought two meat-eaters here and they loved it! Friendly staff. Smaller space so recommend a reservation. Highly recommend the lasagne, spring rolls and desserts.

A nice find, although it's fairly well hidden. The tables are a little too close to each other but this is clearly a popular place for vegetarians. I was very pleased they were able to accommodate my slightly restricted diet without any hassle and I really enjoyed the meal and pleasant service.

Fabulous place, fabulous people (staff and visitors), fabulous music going with the environment and the food. Clearly a place to those who can and want to appreciate slow. Staff always kind and helpful since the very first moment. The food is excellent, well done with fresh and tasty products. Prices are average for the quality of the food provided. Lovely place for a meal whichever the time of the day you choose to go there. I can't recommend this place enough. Will surely go back. 5 stars.

Took my meat-eating father here for a birthday meal, we had the vegan roast and he LOVED it. The waiting staff were all efficient and attentive, and we're quite impatient people when it comes to food so we enjoyed the more cafe/food bar environment. And of course the food was absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend to friends/family and will definitely be coming back! So lovely to have such a fantastic vegan restaurant in my hometown.

Lovely food and the half open kitchen allows diners to have glimpses of the dynamics within the kitchen. From what I could see, the staff works in perfect harmony, waltzing round one another; the chef on duty is clearly passionate about what she serves and pays attention to every single detail.

Had a amazing time and very satisfied palates. Thanks for this great experience and I am sure it won't be long till I revisit Stem and Glory.

Hard to believe that such a bustling and welcoming vegan restaurant is hidden away at Mitcham's corner. Three of us (only one vegan) all agreed the food was creative, well presented and entirely delicious, and the drinks selection intriguing. Highly recommended.

We had an excellent meal at Stem and Glory, my daughter is newly veggie and has completed her GCSEs so it was a really nice celebratory meal.
The restaurant is clean and welcoming and the staff were young and vibrant, loved that you could see all that the excellent chef did.
Will be recommending to all my friends.

My wife and I are both enjoying the benefits of being Vegan and it's restaurants like Stem & Glory that inspire creativity in food and taste. It's not often that we're able to choose anything on the menu, so when looking for a location for our 6 year wedding anniversary there was no question that it was going to be here. We had Daryl serving us, and he always makes us feel so welcome and appreciated and took the time to chat about travels and mutual pursuits. It was just a great wholesome atmosphere.
The food was sensational and I can only give the highest praise to the chefs at Stem & Glory. Every part of the meal left us awestruck. The portions were very generous and we were surprised at how reasonable our 3 course meal turned out. We plan to return for meals on a regular basis. Thank you Stem & Glory.
