We weren’t given both menus that were available!
Pudding menu was given to us as we first sat down!
Food was over priced for portions sizes and quality,
Heard good things but perhaps we booked on the wrong day of the week
The starters and mains were exceptional but I'd probably give pudding a miss next time! The service was friendly, though the set up of the restaurant sometimes makes it difficult to attract someone's attention. Only little niggles, though. Generally very good.
Great food .. great night !! .. will definitely go again .. and will recommend to friends and family alike
The starters and main course had same elements and it was basically eating the same thing with few extras on the plate. When we visited, the place was less than half full, still it took a lot of time for the drinks as well as the food to arrive. The ambiance was dull. Property is very good and service can be improved. Please fix the menu as there is lot of repetition in the available options.
Amazing food, looked great, tasted amazing and made me feel good! Service was great. Great choices on the menu. The dessert was amazing and the cocktails! 100% recommend to anyone. Vegan or not. Can't wait to go again.
Fabulous all round. Just the dessert menu that didn't appeal to me but that's not a bad thing!
Very lovely food even if your non vegan, however portion size could be bigger.
Best 3 courses I've had for a long time. As a vegan it's wonderful to find a restaurant that's offering tasty and filling imaginative food.
Disappointing flavours on the starter. Cracker was soggy and flavours very bland.
Main festive terrine was underwhelming and veg were undercooked particularly the sprouts which were raw.
Atmosphere nice and chilled and Scottish waiter lovely.
Lovely calm restaurant with attentive staff. The night I went, the kitchen had issues and the main took more than 45 minutes after the starter. The staff took the trouble to apologise and offer a free drink for the wait but a 3 course dinner service took 2.5 hours. I'd go back but not if I'm rushing to the theatre or cinema. Food was uneven in quality (the main) but beautifully presented.
Really tasty food with big portions. Was full well before I'd finished it all. I got a starter, main & side - all really delicious.
Lovely food and friendly staff. i would thoroughly recommend it
Food was brilliant, great use of flavours. The place was really nice and staff friendly.
Food was outstanding but felt the service was slow and I was in during lunch so short on time.
I visited the Allotment with two vegetarian friends. We had the set price menu which was good value for money. All three courses were very tasty and beautifully represented. Thd service was excellent and the waiting on staff were very attentive. I would certainly recommend it to friends both vegetarian and non and return back.
A beautiful and very well thought out space, and the food was un-fussy and delicious, and completely satisfying for a couple of omnivores accompanying a vegan.
Hi, Thank you for your feedback. We like to make sure everyone enjoys their experience with us at the Allotment. Many thanks The Allotment
Food was great but unfortunately the time between courses was pretty ridiculous. We weren’t the only ones who noticed as people on other tables mentioned it to us. Over an hour between each course, which in my opinion is too long. That might have been excusable if they provided some snacks or drinks for relief but when you are sat waiting, twiddling your thumbs it really killed the vibe of the night for me and my partner.
That is why I rated the service low as they didn’t make an effort to at least try and accommodate us during the long wait. The food was brilliant however, very tasty and very well priced but tarnished by the service which is a shame.
Maybe it was a one off and next time it’ll be faster but they should have thought on their feet like other restaurants do when they have delays and provided something to break up the waiting.
Hi Singii, I am very sorry to hear about your experience with us. I would really like to speak with you further on this if you could email me directly email@example.com it would be much appreciated. Regards General Manager
I don’t know why I went back, forgotten how small and pretentious the portions are! This time the food was also so salty that I wasn’t able to taste anything other than salt. I also had an interesting mix of temperatures of components on the same plate (Luke warm side, red hot mushroom).
I am missing the celebration of vegetables as they are, everything had been fried, salted, sliced, mushed, whatever to take away from the intrinsic deliciousness of vegetables.

Delicious food, knowledgable staff and a great atmosphere. It's a good option for a special occasion, but doesn't require airs and graces.
Hi, Thank you for your kind words, as a small independent business we try very hard to make sure our service and food is the best it can be. Many thanks The Allotment
Honestly sad to say but would never recommend or return and was really looking forward to going for a while. The concept is good however the food just isn't executed well to say the least. Extremely bland undercooked hard vegetables nicest thing was the crispy kale.
Would rather of gone and got a vegan sausage roll from Gregg's sorry hopefully will improve
Hi Olivia, I am very sorry to hear about your experience with us. I would really like to speak with you further on this if you could email me directly email@example.com it would be much appreciated. Regards General Manager
A really enjoyable environment for a night out, supported by a very engaging team, and best of all the food was outstanding and truly great value.
Hi Stephen, Thank you for your kinds words. We hope that you will choose to dine with us again soon. Many thanks The Allotment
Beautifully presented and exciting food. I would recommend
Hi, Thank you for your kind words! We look forward to having you dine with us again soon. Many thanks The Allotment
We had a lovely meal and was nice service, although a little slow and they weren't that busy. Overall though would definitely like to go back
Great place if they work harder and just a bit more nuances they wil be in Michel book.
Hi, Thanks for your feedback, we do consider ourselves to work very hard to make sure every guest experiences the best customer journey we can offer. Therefore, we are in the michelin guide for 2020. Many thanks The Allotment
I think it’s massively overpriced for the amount of food you get and considering it’s a vegan restaurant and the vegetables were undercooked was quite worrying.
Hi Harvey, Thank you for your feedback, unfortunately we are a small independent business and our concept is quite niche so we are wanting to offer something a little different to our guests. Our vegetables are sometimes served slightly al dente so that our guests can experience the true flavours of the vegetables. Many thanks The Allotment
Food was delicious, as was drink. Moreover, it was excellent value for money. The only thing I would not recommend was the truffle negroni coctail- the truffle scent was too overwhelming and it did not have the classic negroni bitterness (or maybe couldn't taste bc of the overpowering smell)
Hi Maria, Thank you for the feedback, unfortunately the truffled negroni is a twist on a classic as it does have a dark chocolate liqueur in it which reduces the classic bitterness. Many thanks The Allotment
Really disappointing. Booked because of good reviews, but the food was pretty poor. More effort given to presentation than taste/texture unfortunately.
We also found out on the night that the tasting menu isn't available unless you pre-book it.
Amazing food and service, we had the 10 course taster menu and every course was lovely, take around 3 hrs to eat 10 courses to leave enough time!! Left feeling satiated but not stuffed ... fab experience - will be returning soon
Hi Sonya, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this lovely review! We're all so happy you enjoyed your experience with us. It does take a while but its all part of the amazing flavour experience right! We hope you can return soon and maybe try the festive taster menu, it is YUM Many Thanks, Chloe
I am the only vegan in our party but we all left with smiley faces and full bellies after enjoying the new festive menu. A varied menu to choose from; each dish was delicious and great value. Friendly knowledgeable staff and a cosy, relaxed atmosphere made for a fabulous evening.
Great place to try out vegan cuisine ! Would recommend all to give it a try !
Hi Sarah, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review, we appreciate all feedback greatly. We're so glad you enjoyed and would recommend our little vegan business, it means the world:) Many Thanks, Chloe
Not just the usual vegan fare. No fake meats or substitutes taking up half the plate. Just veggies cooked in an interesting and innovative way. The place had a nice buzz and the service was informative and friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful food, lots of flavour. Good service and recommend to anyone. I’m not a vegan but a lover of good food.
Don’t get me wrong, the food was okay, but it lacked complexity of flavour. The descriptions on the menu were based on descriptions of meat dishes, pastrami, koftas and etc and maybe it was the attempts to make the food resemble meat, that was its downfall.
The restaurant was half empty, which made for a lack of ambience and the lighting was harsh, which added to the problem.
The wine was good.
The service was fine and the waiters were friendly.
For a specialist vegan restaurant “The Allotment “ lets itself down. Go on, forget the meat references and inject some interesting flavours into your food!
Lovely food. Can’t fault it at all. For a meat eater I was apprehensive about finding anything that would satisfy me. No worries though, the food was full of flavour, rich and inventive. Left feeling very full And happy. We had to keep checking the menu on our phone to identify some of the flavours! Wow !
Best vegan food I've ever eaten, drove two hours just to eat here and would do it again!
Hi Emma, That's great to hear! Were so happy you enjoyed your time with us, even after the long drive! We would love to see you again :) Many Thanks, Chloe
Amazing vegan food - can’t wait to try the Christmas tasting menu 😋
Hi Kim, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. We're so happy you enjoyed your meal with us! Our festive menu is now live and it is delicious, we hope we see you soon to try it. Many Thanks, Chloe
Really imaginative plant based cuisine, some great flavours.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We're all super happy you enjoyed your time and the food with us. We hope we can see you again soon, maybe to try our new festive menu starting 11th November :) Many Thanks, Chloe
I can’t fault this place that I chanced upon & im a fussy bugger.
Calm nice ambience. Food is exciting new innovative vegan dishes & so tasty & delicious. Service great. Price reasonable.
Hi Rachel, Thank you for leaving us this lovely review! We love hearing that you enjoyed your experience here with us and we hope we can see you again soon :) Many Thanks, Chloe
We had the Sunday roast 3 course meal and can not fault it. Full of flavour. Staff were friendly and attentive when necessary. We will certainly be making the allotment one of our regulars
Hi Julia! That's great to hear you would like to come and visit us again! We look forward to seeing you :) Our festive menu starts on the 11th November and hopefully you enjoy that just as much as the Sunday Roast, it looks so tasty! Many Thanks, Chloe
Have posted a good review on Trip Advisor. May be start the Sunday Roast menu before 2.00 to encourage more diners?
Hi, We have just seen the trip adviser and your recommendation has been noted, we think that sounds like a good idea too :) Many Thanks, Chloe
