Review of The Paleo Primal Roost Pantry and Cafe Bagshot Surrey

When I heard about a new paleo cafe in Surrey I have to confess to being a tad excited. It meant that in theory I could safely eat anything. So I headed down to Bagsott on the hunt of this new cafe. I have to confess to walking straight past it initially. The cafe is fairly small but bright and modern with a neutral decor. We sat by the window and were informed that you had to go to the till to place your order.
Apparently I was like a child in a sweet shop with the look of excitement on my face. I could have everything on the menu, now that never happens. The menu was small and simple but we still found it difficult to choose.
We opted for the cauliflower chicken salad. This came in two sizes and we opted for the large. My friend had a carrot and apple juice I had a simple sparkling water this was despite there been a large choice of drinks available.
Whilst we were waiting for our salad I had a good old fashioned nose around the cafe with permission of course. There is section of paleo food, drinks and cook books available. I had a good look, but to be most of it I either had at home or had tried and therefore I didn’t purchase anything.
On the counter by the till there was a good selection of cakes. They all looked very tempting and you were truely spoilt for choice.
At the end of the counter you can see the freshly prepared food that you are going to eat. It was full of vibrant colours and looked healthy and again very tempting.
Our lunch was freshly prepared and took a little time to arrive despite it being quiet. We got a large portion of chicken salad with a large side of cauliflower rice. The salad was lovely and contained every salad ingredient you could imagine. The chicken was nice and simple and light and had been cooked perfectly. The cauliflower rice was nice slightly bitter tasting but this is to be expected and had a nice subtle seasoning added. There was far too much to eat. I really enjoyed all of the elements of this dish the simple flavours complimented each other nicely. You get a good portion of chicken and it was definitely value for money. I even enjoyed the cauliflower rice despite not even really liking cauliflower.
We were both full and I wasn’t able to eat even think about squashing a waffle in. The dessert menu offered a great selection. You could even get one of my favourite yogurts Co-Yo. Maybe next time I will have a smaller lunch so I can fit a dessert in.

My only criticism was that despite it being quiet the service was slow even though there was sufficient staff. Would I go back yes definitely for a nice cup of tea and cake. After all is not often that I can find a cafe where I can eat all of the cakes 😊.

  1. I’m glad you’ve found somewhere you can eat everything but I’m slightly confused, I didn’t think paleo necessarily meant dairy-free? Aren’t they the guys with the raw butter in the coffee?

  2. This post has made me hungry! I have serious issues with MSG (sadly, I’ve never been able to identify which *type* of MSG so have been unable to banish it from my diet, but the local Chinese sadly no longer gets my service after they got a new chef) and everything here looks so vibrant and tasty! I don;t believe I’ve ever had cauliflower rice; could you please tell me more about that? I love cauliflower (actually all vegetables, but especially cauliflower) and if I can find other ways to eat it other than cooked florets or in my home-made piccalilli I’m all for it 🙂

  3. i think i would have enjoyed a place like this. living in south east asia, we don’t have the same luxury of choices you have there. if i were there, i think i’d end up buying a lot of their stuff at the cafe.
