Feeling bloated and flabby after eating and drinking everything in sight over Christmas?

You may benefit from a visit to the UK's first vegan and alcohol-free bar in London's trendy Notting Hill.

The unique venue claims that its detoxifying produce will tackle even the worst cases of festive fatigue.

Menu highlights include the 'Bombay Love Smoothie', made with turmeric, coconut milk, carrot, lemon and ginger, and 'Green Is The New Black', which features spinach, avocado, cucumber, lime, ginger and coconut water blended with pineapple juice.

The Notting Hill joint also serves food -  think salads with sprouted beans, dates, pecans and avocado.

The venue began as a pop-up two years ago before opening in its present location last July.
