Very good vegetarian

Very nice restaurant, a bit country and informal. We arrived after 9 PM and there were only two other tables taken. The service was kind and we enjoyed the food very much. A very pleasant discovery and a nice change from the fried-food restaurants. Also the desert (lemon cake) was great.

Visited as I'm vegetarian, so thought I'd show some loyalty on a visit to Exeter. Low-key 80's style with canteen style crockery and cutlery; all of which would be charming if the food was good. It's plentiful but ill - conceived combinations eg, turkish olive bread with houmous and dhal sandwich. Seems to thrive on 'more than you can eat'... More

I visited Herbies with my son. The food was amazing. He had the Moroccan tagine and I had the Greek pie. Both were fantastic - tasty and good size portions. I can also recommend the garlic bread with cheese. I managed to squeeze in a pecan treacle tart too which was a great way to end the meal. Staff were... More

Visited for lunch and the usual friendly welcome and excellent food and service. The restaurant was quite busy and there were no delays in getting the food out. It is good that you can see the kitchen workers. My only criticism is - as before - that something needs to be done about the downstairs toilet/basement area. Although spotlessly clean... More

Took my elderly mum out. Really nice food, we were looked after well and the bill was a pleasant surprise. Key Lime Pie was brilliant. Thanks!

So much choice! The food was fantastic, portions huge. Service was very friendly, and everyone was very helpful. They even had a choice of Vegan desserts! Really good value too.

If you are or have a vegetarian guest this is a great place to have lunch. On taking a veggie friend for lunch, she was impressed.

We have eaten here many times, but due to laziness, never posted a review. Time to make up for that oversight! Firstly, I need to state we are not vegetarian or vegan - never will be as we like our steaks and bacon butties far too much, but will always go out of our way to eat here as the... More
