Leon, London

UK travel information

Leon opened its doors to Londoners in 2004 and in a mere six years it has become something of a London establishment. With eight restaurants in central London it is now creeping outside of the capital, with a new store recently opened in the Bluewater shopping centre in Gravesend.

Its expansion seems to reflect a need that Londoners have had - people want fast food but they want it to be healthy, organic and sustainable. Leon ticks all of those boxes. Its tagline is “In farms we trust,” reflecting its commitment to, where possible, source ingredients from the UK that are currently in season. All of the meat is certified Freedom Food, and the company, unlike many other fast food chains, proudly knows the names of its producers - chickens raised by Andy Maunder in Devon while the meat is from father and son team Basil & Richard at Gatcombe Farm. It’s no surprise that Leon is a founding member of the Sustainable Restaurants Association. 

Opening from early morning to late in the evening, Leon provides healthy fast-food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the morning there are healthy bacon or sausage baps, fresh orange juice and coffee. For lunch there is a range of wraps, salads, soups and hot dishes. In the evening there is an extensive tapas menu for grazing over a few drinks amongst friends. There is also a children’s menu and a wide selection of cakes. Another advantage to Leon is that it is licensed so it’s possible to go for a leisurely dinner in the evening. 

For Leon lovers the team behind the restaurant has recently brought out a cookbook called “Leon: Ingredients and Recipes,” which has a selection of some of their favourites.
