From a non-vegan perspective I was incredibly surprised with the offer and ambience I found. My very demanding vegan daughter was super happy and actually said it was the best restaurant she has attended.

They ran out of most of the starters and mains by 1930 on a Wednesday. It was ridiculous

I really wanted to like this place but found it a bit ‘blah’. Food was OK, but nothing more than that. Service was again OK - had to ask for our plates to be taking away after they’d been sitting empty in front of us for half an hour. The bill felt very sharp for an OK experience.

The most incredible and imaginative food, it looks delicious, is beautifully presented but tastes out of this world! This is not something I could ever replicate at home so it always feels like a real treat to go there. If you haven't been - GO! Its a taste sensation and their creativity is inspiring.

For vegetarian it was not very adventurous having pizzas and burgers that you get everywhere. I went for a Thai curry that was very bland.

It was also very big space and was cold and a bit atmosphere less

I took a friend with allergies to nuts, seeds and celery and the staff couldn't have been more helpful so both of us were delighted. She thought - from looking at the menu beforehand - that she'd only be able to eat the olives but as it turned out she had a full meal, including dessert.

Thanks to all!

The food is always excellent and usually the service is too and it's a beautiful place. The service was slightly slow and it was slightly noisier than usual, hence the non 5* review for everything. There was a deal which we took advantage of so that brought the usually steep prices down. All in all a wonderful evening with good friends and food.

They had no gluten free flour and a well being vegan place on a saturday found this ridiculous, my friend then never got his drink and food was taking ages. They did apologise and I was told they would email me offering me a free pizza on them next time, which I never received. Did use to like this place but not sure I'd go back.

Sorry to say we had a very average lunch. The food took almost an hour to arrive without any communication from the waiting staff and no apology for the wait upon delivery of our food. The meatball pizza was very good but the other dishes were very average and overpriced. A hot chocolate was £6! There was also no running water in the toilets when we were there. The atmosphere in the restaurant however was nice and the interior design very stylish.

A fantastic venue for healthy food. This is my second visit to the cafe. Both times I took a friend who needs to eat gluten and dairy free and who also has allergies to some foods. The staff are fantastic and looked after my friend, very well. We had a lovely meal. We choose the vegetarian tagliatelle and had a glass of orange wine each. We also had a portion of sweet potato to share with alio sauce. We will come back again to try the breakfast next time

On our first visit we had the salad which was superb. Do go

Although it is an aesthetically pleasing environment, the food is very expensive and the taste does not respond to the price at all, unfortunately. There is noise from other people chatting and I guess I wouldn't go back necessarily. We had the burger with my friend and we didn't really enjoy it (salty, and a lack of flavour, while the bun was crumbling). The banoffee was good, but I would not pay such high prices for this. I'd love to see staff being a bit more casual as well.

The food was nice but could have had a bit more flavour and seasoning. Also quite expensive considering I was pretty peckish when I left.

My advice would be to skip the dinner and instead visit this place for a juice and a dessert in the afternoon cos the dessert was 100% the best thing! Get the banoffee pie!

Very nice environment, peaceful decor. I had a delicious vegan revisit of a full English breakfast. I ordered a smoothie that had something in it that neither myself or my friend liked at all. I rarely do that but I asked if I could change by something else. They did but I think the waiter could have been nicer at doing it and not mentioning that "they never had any complaints before".

The service was friendly, but unfortunately there seemed to be a problem with the kitchen and our food was extremely slow to arrive. In addition, one of the plates was missing something that had been written on the menu, however with all the delay in service we didn't really want to mention it. My meal was excellent, and my parents who accompanied me enjoyed theirs as well, so hopefully they can speed up their kitchen times for a more positive future experience.
