It's a simple menu but they do absolutely everything right. For vegans, you've likely seen these dishes at a million other vegan eateries and might not think a day at The Allotment worth your time, but every dish is brimming with flavour and puts all other restaurants to shame by pure perfection of everything that's plated. It's also quite a casual spot so you won't have to dress up too much, food takes precedence in every aspect.

Overall a great experience. I did feel the food was not as great as other vegan places I’ve eaten and for cheaper. Glad to say I can tick it off the list!

Drinks were the highlight! I’d go back just for the drinks!

Superb food great wine
One meat eater and one vegetarian Tried the vegan experience as part of birthday gift. The service was fabulous we were served by a lovely young lady Lorne who gave us plenty of advice and info about the food and wine.
Starters came quickly, meateater had the roasted butternut squash and wasn’t disappointed for main had the jackfruit tacos again the depth of flavour was impressive with a little fiery kick. The wine choice-a Lorne advised Chardonnay- not what we normally choose was surprisingly delicious. The desert hazelnut slice was sublime a must have. My vegetarian partner was impressed with the tofu curry, tasty but needed slightly more rice or less sauce.
It was very quite at the time we were there in between the end of lunch rush and to early for the evening crowd our choice but imagine the experience would be only bettered by a buzz of people.
A great little place.
Carnivores don’t be scared, give this a go you’ll not be disappointed

The restaurant has a lovely low key vibe which I’m sure springs to life more in the evening. Service was quick without being rushed and efficient. And the food was really something special. Totally recommend.

The food and service was excellent! Although the platter was a little small, the flavour combinations and presentation is excellent. Staff are very attentive and knowledgeable. Great wine list, and I highly recommend the Zeppelin cocktail!

This was our first meal out since the easing of lockdown restrictions, having relocated to Manchester during the pandemic. Alongside this it was also my first visit to a fully vegan restaurant and quite honestly, it was fantastic. The food and service were first class, great value too. The venue is relaxed, welcoming and has the quiet hum of couples/groups of friends enjoying their various imaginative meals.
