    Great ambience, great menu (even limited Sunday one). Creative drink menu. Great and attentive service. Highly recommended for vegans and non-vegans alike.

    We had a reservation but our table wasn’t ready on arrival. We were asked to sit outside in the rain and informed that somebody would come outside shortly to take our drinks order. Nobody came. As the rain got heavier, we went back inside and had to wait for our table in the doorway - 35 minutes in total. The flavours of the food we ordered was very good. Unfortunately the portion size - particularly the Tom Yum - was questionable. It was basically a bowel of flavoured water. All in all, a good place to go if you’re not hungry and don’t mind being made to wait outside in the rain like a dog.

    We booked a table to celebrate our anniversary, and it's an entirely different dining experience to when the restaurant was in Stockport. The fine dining element isn't there which is fine as we were expecting that having seen the menu. It's the quality of the food which was a let down, Tom Yum which tasted like a tomato soup with no real Asian flavours and the thai curry which had hard mange tout and slightly undercooked rice. I can only imagine the chef has left

    Four of us had lunch at The Allotment yesterday!! Two of our party are vegans, one is vegetarian and I normally eat meat and fish!! Not that any of that mattered - the four of us all thoroughly enjoyed a sumptuous 3-course lunch. Really interesting cooking, with lovely fresh produce and great service. Highly recommended! Thank you!!

    I really wanted to love it but it just wasn’t up to scratch. The staff were very sweet but our starters took 40 minutes to arrive which is far too long, particularly as it wasn’t that busy. The food was really average sadly. Great ideas but just didn’t work. Tom yum was almost entirely flavourless with overcooked veg and rice not worth the calories. Cauliflower wings looked stunning but just tasted like powdered paxo. Potato wedges were nice but they do not constitute chunky chips. Sorry guys, just not great cooking. Beautiful venue and great location so if the food can get up to scratch I’d definitely give it another whirl.

    Too many tables for the space, not enough staff to cover, so long waits. Food nice but not heated up enough, as again, too many diners to cater for at once so they were trying too hard to get the food out asap.

    Summer platter was meant to have the cashew cheese dip on it and this is why we ordered. The server brought it out but didn’t mention it was missing then when we questioned it, they said they’d go get some and it took them 10 minutes to come back with garlic sauce and said they had ran out of the cashew cheese dip. We had already ordered the garlic sauce which hadn’t arrived to our table so assumed this garlic sauce was what we ordered rather than a replacement for the cashew cheese dip. Nothing was offered as an alternative and this was really disappointing. We usually really love coming to Allotment but this experience has put us off as the service surrounding the food was poor.

    It was very dull food , some of it not even properly hot. They had run out of lots of things on the menu, and for dessert the icecream was one tiny scoop. We were near the toilet and the hand drier was so noisy it drowned out all conversation every 5 mins.

    Appealing service from one waiter, not even our table waiter, completely ruined our evening and the dining experience. We cannot recommend it to anyone in case they receive the same shocking treatment.

    Average and uninspired food in a venue that lacked sparkle and atmosphere. Staff friendly enough, but didn’t actively solicit feedback. Bit hidden/ not that easy to find. All in all a disappointing gastronomic experience. Difficult to recommend.

    We were a party of 3 on a Friday lunch first visit and arrived on time.Very few people in so I considered the response time from our arrival to receiving in one go (our request) 6 small plates, a Tom Yum main and a sharing platter of an hour to be somewhat slow. Unfortunately, some work was being carried out by a contractor in the bar area which created occasional very noisy screeching noises for a period of 30 minutes or so….could not this have been done before opening time of 12pm? It spoilt the ambience of the place. All the dishes arrived at the same time as we requested. All forgiven……the food was excellent without exception. Cauliflower wings and Tom Yum broth deserve special mention but as a party we agreed that everything was excellent, innovative and very tasty.

    Our whole experience was really good. The staff were attentive and polite. The food was outstanding. I had tofu I satay sauce followed by jackfruit tacos. My partner had chicory and tenderstem salad followed by 'fish and chips'. All plates were presented beautifully and tasted superb. We managed to squeeze in dessert too which were also 10 out of 10. If you want vegan food this is the place to go.

    Excellent Vegan food and drinks. We chose to sit outside as nobody inside hence the ambience score. Only issue was the overspill from noisy pub into the restaurant area

    I absolutely love Allotment usually. I assume the experience I had was down to teething problems having just opened the new venue the day before, but it was so disappointing. I’d brought my Mum and really hyped the place up because of how good the food has been every time I’ve been to the old place off Deansgate, but this new place is like night & day in comparison. The Cauliflower Wings (more or less the entire reason we were there) weren’t available. The tacos were stone cold. The satay sauce that came with the tofu skewers was curdled and gritty. I’d have sent the whole lot back if we weren’t on a time constraint because we were going to the theatre. On the plus side, the drinks were lovely and the staff very friendly but I really would struggle to eat here again.
