I had a brilliant experience at Vertigo. Went out for a celebration meal and all the food was excellent and suited a lot of different tastes. My friend would normally never order vegetarian food whilst out and he loved the options on the menu. The staff were lovely too.

I really enjoyed the food at Vertigo - we had the cauliflower small plate and the gnocchi large plate. Both tasted wonderful, and the service was great too!

This was our first visit to Vertigo and also to try a vegan restaurant. I can promise you that the food was to die for! It was so delicious I wouldn’t have even known it was a vegan dinner! The staff were incredibly friendly and there atmosphere was lovely. We will certainly be back again and again!

Hi, I’ve visited Vertigo before for their amazing afternoon tea but brunch this time was fantastic. The only thing I’d say is a mimosa or Bloody Mary might go down well with brunch but I didn’t ask, so either might have been available 🤦‍♀️

Amazing food - fresh, healthy and delicious. Great smoothies also. Nice venue and everything was reasonably priced. First Street overall is a nice relaxing place and Vertigo is no exception. Would definitely recommend!

A great place to eat with good atmosphere. The menu could do with more detail on it as I wasn't expecting some of the parts of the food and I wouldn't know without asking so wasn't overly satisfied with the main ordered as it had parts on it that I won't eat. Overall though it's a great restaurant, I highly recommend the Bao buns in-particular.

Great food. The Mac and cheeze was great. And the service was very good. It would be good to see a vegan fried chicken dish on the menu,!! Highly recommended. Also the slabs of cake looked yummy.

So disappointing. Came here for bunch only to be told they didn’t have have any tofu, mushrooms or sausage. We were able to get the vertigo benedict but the next person after us was told they were then sold out of that as well.

We also overheard them tell another table they also weren’t serving any sandwiches.

After we were able to order something they had in stock it took over 40 minutes to get the food. The lotus pancakes were good but the vertigo benedict was very small, I guess as they were running out it food!

All in all a very poor experience and I wouldn’t be back.

Good range on menu. Relaxed dining with definite grown up meals (as opposed to diner style). Flavoursome & generous portions. Quite small premises so your snug up with other diners & aware of their conversation, which is Ok if everyone’s behaving nicely, you’re a social body & into eaves dropping! Staff were friendly, helpful & didn’t pester, thank you. Pre Theatre deal is excellent value & the accompanying House Red was surprisingly good. Hope to make a repeat visit soon.

Have been there twice now. Great little place. Top quality vegan food and good service.

Also, a rarity now... an eatery where you don't feel like you're in a disco due to loud music.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my thoughts.
Whilst the food service and value were excellent your thoughts should be with the front door from the street.
It was cold and wet on the evening we chose to dine with you, our seat was close to the door, every time someone approached the door it opened via a movement sensor.
There isn’t a vestibule or double door present, so when it’s open the whole restaurant feels the cold air rushing in.
This problem is compounded when people arrive at the restaurant, there isn’t a clear indication as to where guests should stand, given it was raining on that evening, guests stood on the matt, unknowingly keeping the door open.
This really could do with addressing
I hope this feedback was helpful

This was our first visit to Vertigo and we were not disappointed. It was quiet when we arrived for lunch but soon filled up and several customers coming in for takeaway lunches. The broccoli soup was delicious and the mushroom bourgignon pie with mash and cabbage was amazing! We've tried a few of the vegan eateries in town but this is by far my favourite! Looking forward to returning to try something else from the menu 😋
