Vegeterian Brunch - Grocer at No5, Gerrards Cross

There is a foodie destination brewing around the Chiltern Hills: Beaconsfield, Old Amersham and Gerrard's Cross are all developing into hotspots for dinning; on any Friday night you'll find a lot of west Londoners around No5 & the Crazy Bear in Beaconsfield and The Artichoke in Amersham. This provides for lovely alternative to London for locals too. I, for one, have welcomed the change.
Last bank holiday weekend, I promised to take my mother-in-law out for brunch. We headed to Gerrard's Cross to have a healthy spot of lunch at the Grocer.  I didn't expect that "Shoreditch" vibe, right in the middle of the countryside! Exposed brick walls, copper lights and a long table for sociable eating and mingling, not to talk about the selection of incredibly high-stacked cakes. We were sure to walk away from those, as we were on a healthy mission.

Instead, we chose a couple of "Dexters", that is vibrant beetroot & ginger smoothies to start with, while we were deciding on our selection of six salads. 
Green runner beans, cooked Greek-style, with chopped tomatoes and loads of cinnamon. Roasted cauliflower, with a dill dressing. Sweet, red peppers. Roasted aubergine with yoghurt and pomegranate. All so colourful and delicious. We were stuffed, I dare say, on veggies! No bread at all, I even got some pasta salad and hardly touched it, so proud!
The Grocer has two branches in Old Amersham too, which look like fun places for breakfast, haven't been yet, but if you have let me know!
