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
A really special meal. We tried to go for dinner but couldn’t get a table so went for lunch instead which worked out better as it was lovely and quiet. You might want to warn people to make sure they go to the right place as we went to the Allotment pub first.
Hi Laurie, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review! We're so happy you enjoyed your meal with us. Yes, that happens a lot! We do try and make sure people know where we are when they phone book, but we will look into the best way to communicate this to online bookings too, thanks for your recommendation, its greatly appreciated :) Many Thanks, Chloe
Beautifully presented and tasty vegan food, looking forward to trying the tasting menu next time!
Hi Felicity, Thanks for taking the time to leave us this nice review! We're super happy you enjoyed the food with us. We look forward to seeing you again too :) Many Thanks, Chloe
fab vegan food in a relaxed setting - interesting menu and hope to return
Hi Rebecca, We hope to see you return too! And we're so happy you enjoyed the food and time with us :) Many Thanks, Chloe
Not been to a vegan restaurant before , so it was a great first time experience.Would be vegan 100% if I could take the chef home with me !
Amazing vegan food. Really interesting and tasty. Fully gluten free too.
Our first visit since it moved from Stockport, we liked the Stockport location better as it was cosier but the new place is still nice, just bigger. Food is still excellent and service is great :)
Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. The food was really nice, with great flavours and a nice colour pallet. Some more protein sources could be added to the main courses, the tofu side dish was in each case delicious. Some vegetables could be cooked a little longer, but that's a personal taste.
Disappointed, as a vegan of many years I was really looking forward to our visit, however found that the food only looked good. Not sure why so many awards have been won though there are not that many vegan restaurants, sorry I could not have said otherwise.
We really enjoyed our evening, we had the 10 course meal as it was 40% off and every part of it was delicious and the staff were all very knowledgeable about each of the courses. We will be back again for sure
Great vegan food - imaginative and wonderfully presented. Probably not a 5/5 due to it feeling not great value but service was really really good so made up for slightly toppy pricing (in my opinion!)
Poor, slow, service. Brought mains before starters. Uninventive menu, food lacking in flavour crowded ‘cafe’ like atmosphere. Would be acceptable if priced a quarter of what it is.
Excellent- would highly recommend!
The food at Allotment was absolutely superb. Delightful and will definitely be back.
But the service was terrible, we waited at least 20 minutes to place our order and at least 20/30 mins between all three courses.
We ate all our ordered food in total of about 30 minutes but were in the restaurant from being seated to leaving for over 2.5 hours.
Third time we have eaten at the Allotment and again a very good experience. New dishes on the menu along with some previous options. All four of us enjoyed the dishes - and the four were one vegan one vegetarian and two omnivores! One suggestion - a wider range of vegan bottled beers would be welcome - especially in 500 ml bottles!
Delicious food on every plate. Our favourites were the banana blossom to start, the jackfruit kofta main and then the cheese board. The staff were friendly & super attentive too.
The food was excellent and the services was friendly and attentive.
Really yummy food, everything we had was delicious, husband is not vegan and he loved it!
A revelation. And I'm not a vegan. The mix of flavours and textures in the vegetables was wonderful. And an excellent wine I had never heard of, completed the experience beautifully- well priced too! It is a smart casual restaurant and you can eat there almost anytime of the afternoon or evening. We both loved our dishes.
I will definitely be revisiting to try out the a la carte menu! The brunch menu was great and highly recommend. Lovely welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk in the restaurant.
An interesting concept where we tried the 10 course tasting menu. It was good to try some foods just I would not usually order. There were some dishes that didn’t work but clearly had been creatively thought through.
Spotless, comfortable, excellent friendly service. The food was outstanding. Lunch menu, 2 courses and coffee £10. Will be visiting again.
Terrific plant based food! Shame the Sunday roast wasn't available that day but we very much enjoyed the a la carte menu.
Hi Susan, Thanks for leaving us a review! We're so happy you enjoyed our food. Hopefully we can see you again soon on a Sunday and you enjoy it as much as you did the a la carte menu. Many Thanks, Chloe
I chose the Kofta which were very very dense and not something I particularly enjoyed. The menu was nice but not a huge choice. Very low key dining setting, quite casual (we were hugely over dressed) and the service was really friendly and very very helpful.
Hi Sophie, Oh No! It's a shame you didnt like your Kofta, they can be very filling. We do try and keep our menu small and change it often, as a casual fine dining restaurant we believe this is the best way to serve the best quality food. We hope wee can see you again soon and hopefully you will enjoy different dish off of our menu! Many Thanks, Chloe
Really nice and tasty food
Wonderful food, even for a meat eater... service was a little slow (only 2 servers) and it got pretty busy on a Friday night.
Hi Jon, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We're glad you enjoyed your food, and chose to eat at a vegan restaurant if you're not vegan yourself! We do apologise about the slow service, you know how Friday nights can be sometimes. We will take this comment on board and try to ensure we always have enough staff to ensure you have the best experience possible. We hope we can see you again soon! Many Thanks, Chloe
DELICIOUS FOOD!!!! It’s so rare to find such amazing food that’s all plant based. And they made me a mocktail off-menu too. Wonderful!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us this lovely review! We're so happy you enjoyed your experience here with us, we hope we can see you again soon! :) Many Thanks, Chloe
I loved every second and mouthful at The Allotment. The food was outstanding and I’ve never been so stuffed, the flavours, presentation everything was perfect. The staff from the moment we arrived until the second we left were incredible and an absolute credit. We will definitely be back! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Hi Megan, Yay! All the team are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, it makes us super proud of what we do! We really hope we can see you again soon, and that you enjoy it just as much the second time round :) Thanks for leaving us this lovely review. Kind Regards, Chloe
