What a mistake choosing the Allotment, the restaurant was dirty, as the glasses and cutlery.

The service was slow and served gone off fruit juice.

The food was not fresh, and as it transpires was pre-packaged and processed rather than the freshly cooked food we came for.

A terrible experience all round and will not be returning.

Service was terrible, over 2 hours for 2 courses. Left us for over 30 mins before even taking a drinks order. Lucky I even paid. For such poor quality in service. Very disappointed

Once again our dining experience at The Allotment was fantastic. I can wholeheartedly recommend the Autumn Bowl and I just can’t get enough of the hazelnut slice. There were hand sanitising stations throughout and there was plenty of space between tables, so for a lovely safe dining experience I can’t recommend it highly enough. We will be back again, I’m thinking the 10 course tasting menu might be our next trip:)

Fantastic meal, small menu but every part was excellently executed. Service was quick and friendly and the waitress from Cornwall (didn't catch her name) was absolutely brilliant, a credit to the business. Went here for the first time for my birthday and it was well worth it! Will definitely be returning.

Thoroughly enjoyed eating here. So much care given to the taste, texture and presentation of the plant-based delights on offer. We were lucky as we got an unexpected 30% discount. Delicious food, considerate service. A real vegan treat. I particularly enjoyed the desert.

Food was lovely, but we spent a considerable amount of time waiting between courses, despite the restaurant being nearly empty. We had to give up on our dessert after waiting for over 20 minutes for a slice of cake. Sorry to say that I would not recommend this place unless you are very very zen about waiting times.

Liked the food but found it a bit overpriced - £15 for a plate of vegetables (the Sunday Roast). There was a big space on the plate where I would have liked a nut roast or something else substantial e.g. a mushroom wellington or vegan toad in the hole. Having said that, I’ll probably go back as it was tasty and it’s hard to find vegan food.

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to lave us some feedback, we really appreciate it! I will be raising your concerns with the head chef and discussing the portion sizes with them. I apologies that you weren't happy with the value for the size, and i hope it doesn't put you off coming again, and its great to hear you thought the food was still tasty! All the best, Chloe

I booked this as a special occassion taking my vegan daughter up to Uni so I didn't know it at all. My daughter is a great vegan cook and we enjoy exploring vegan options but I have to admit a vegan restaurant isn't my usual 'go-to' option.

But it was honestly fantastic. The place was easy to find, charming interior and welcoming staff despite all the current distancing. The asked if any of us had any alergies and when I said 'vegan food' I wasn't thrown out !

My daughter was just so pleased to be able to choose ANYTHING from the menu which is so rare. The vegan alternatives elsewhere always seem a bit of an after thought.

We all chose something different so we could sample as many options as we could and none of us were disappointed. Great food, great variety of drinks and above all very helpful and attentive staff. Vegan or not it won't disappoint.

We're thrilled to hear you all enjoyed your visit with us! It's really nice hearing feedback like this and knowing that we can show people how tasty plant based food can be, (whether you are vegan or not). We would never throw anyone out, what would life be without a bit of banter, ay! And we wish your daughter all the best for Uni! We are sure she will have an amazing year, all of the Manchester universities are remarkable. We hope we can see you all again in the future. Kind Regards, Chloe
