What's happening in the Bonnington Cafe?

To all our supporters,

Bonnington Cafe is still closed. Cooks' initiatives and proposals for mediations have not been responded to. Our lawyers were costly but not very effective and we decided not to continue with the emotionally draining legal process.

We would like to return your generous donations as we are not going to go to court.

The good news is that we have been invited for a residency in nearby Kennington. 

Some of our cooks have been working there voluntarily and we would love you to join us for our opening weekend for complimentary lunch. 

Sat 9th and Sunday 10th of July 2022 

Hoping to see you there between 10am and 3 pm.

Courtyard Cafe,

Jamyang Buddhist Centre , 

43 Renfrew Rd , London SE 11 4 NA


We are very sorry to have to cancel all Bonnington Café bookings until further notice.

On Monday 29th of November, our landlord, the Bonnington Centre Community Association’s management committee has boarded the café up and refused to allow our cooks access.

We are in shock and we believe we are being illegally evicted.

We have set up a crowdfunding campaign to assist us with legal costs. See link below




We love our neighbours

Bonnington cafe is situated in peaceful leafy Bonnington square. When leaving the cafe or stepping out for fresh air, please pretend you're in a library.
