Excellent cafe-style vegan restaurant. Very busy Sunday lunchtime - definitely need to book. Service friendly and efficient. Plenty of choices on the menu. Food was delicious.

The food is always great at The Crazy Bean. We took a friend who had never tried Vegan food before and he loved it! The staff are always friendly. I'd recommend booking as it's popular.

Have been told by my mum countless times to try the Crazy Bean Cafe and finally did, and it was so worth it! As it always seems to be fully booked when my mum tries I booked for 2 people on a Thursday night. We actually ended up being the only people in there but there were lots of people collecting takeaways (noted for the future!) and never felt awkward being the only people in there or rushed in any way. Very attentive and friendly service. I was tempted by the Autumn Salad but feared it would be small... I was told it was pretty big... wow - it's huge, absolutely delicious and so filling! Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal and said we'd return. I am not a vegan and would recommend to vegan and non vegans alike. A lovely atmosphere - especially at night - really cosy with twinkly lights. Made for a lovely evening. Lots of drinks choice and a never ending list of soft drinks for those not drinking like myself. A real gem! + the coleslaw is amazing...

Wonderful place to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. Good quality vegetarian cuisine prepared freshly on the premises. Would recommend crispy cauliflower wings with Saracha sauce. Also their vegetable tart, mushroom pasta and vegetarian burger. Lovely ambiance in the evening. They also serve delicious cakes during the day. A real find in our local village of Bookham. Book ahead to avoid disappointment!

It was our first visit after recommendation by a friend. We were warmly welcomed and service was excellent. Atmosphere was good in such a small cafe. It was made most enjoyable in that we could have a conversation without shouting at each other. Perhaps a couple more options on the menu would be good to have, especially if meeting non vegan friends, but what we chose was beautifully presented and tasty. We will return.

I’ve been wanting to visit for ages and wasn’t disappointed. My friend and I went for lunch. I had a lovely salad and an extra portion of fries. Two scoops of ice cream for desert and so full that I couldn’t eat a meal later in the evening. Service was fab and atmosphere very friendly and the little dog was fab too!
My friend had the burger and fries, and chocolate brownie and loved hers too.
We will definitely return and try everything on the menu. Just wish it offered even more choice.
And thank goodness for a fully vegan cafe!

Our first visit and not a busy night for Crazy Bean so shortly after NY. Ambiance and Service was very good. Menu could do with a bit more variety to encourage a return visit. Would recommend to locals considering an entry level plant based dining experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Crazy Bean. Food was great, and the waiter was very friendly. We had to wait a little while for the food as we were a larger party, however it was definitely worth the wait! Will be back to visit again soon.

Hopefully they change the menu from time to time or Yiu would not have enough choice.

Great selection of dishes on the menu, if you fancy two dishes choose one as a starter, no problem. Food was flavourful & delicious even for the palate of a non-vegan/vegetarian. Staff were attentive & friendly & will explain anything you don't know about... great for a non-vegan. Loved it.

Always lovely food here although disappointed that the burger appeared to be a bought-in patty rather than homemade. The buffalo cauliflower wings were fabulous. Waiter didn’t seem to know the menu & wasn’t terribly observant - he put main course down but didn’t clear away the starter or take away the wine glasses when we’d all ordered other drinks. Perhaps he was new to the job. Wouldn’t really put me off coming back as it’s the only vegan restaurant that’s not too far away!

Having eaten the vegan burger for lunch a couple of weeks before I wanted my husband (a self confessed carnivore) to give it a try. He somewhat reluctantly agreed to have dinner at Crazy Bean, and had to admit that the burger was absolutely delicious! He also had the brownie for dessert and said that was also amazing. Throughly recommend this amazing little vegan cafe - gorgeous food and a really relaxed atmosphere. We will be back again soon!
