Always look forward to a meal here, some of the best food I have tasted. As a vegan it can be difficult to eat you but here I have good menu to choose from and the chocolate trio is fantastic.

we don't usually eat vegetarian but have always enjoyed it when we do Unfortunately instead of an abundance of different tastes we felt this was monotone and expensive for what we received. The Australian organic wine though was excellent

I visited with four work colleagues to say farewell to our colleague who is moving south. We were welcomed warmly and settled into a lounge area to chat, drinks and nibbles were served and it was a lovely start to the evening. Some of our party had not planned to have a starter... That is until we saw the wonderful... More

Always consistent great food at my favourite vegetarian place in northern England. There were 3 of us: myself, a vegetarian and 2 omnivores. We started with organic Pinkus beer and followed it up with a fruity, crisp French house wine. Starters included Aubergine roast buckwheat wrap, capers green olive & green salsa (yummy) and Chunky potted beetroot & borlotti bean... More

Great food even for non vegetarian people! The first time I came the food was delicious, the second time was not so good (it was average and we felt a bit dissapointed-it's expensive) but the third time was so nice and tasty that we definately come back again (and I hope not to be dissapointed!)

This restaurant is the best place for vegetarians to eat Cumbria. I could have chosen all of the dishes on the menu as they were soo appealing. The service and the food made our holiday. We brought a couple of non vegetarians and they were bowled over by the food so much that they wanted to eat there the next... More

This restaurant was great. Really delicious,fresh and inventive food, making the most of the taste of vegetables. I had a beetroot and aubergine dish with wasabi and it was delicious. I then had a trio of chocolate desserts which was fab. We went with another couple and we all had a great evening. The restaurant was busy,even mid week, so... More

We have greatly enjoyed dining here for many years although we are not vegetarians. The food in lovingly prepared with some amazing textures and flavours and all beautifully presented. The service is low key and unhurried making for a relaxing evening. One of the delights of living in Cockermouth is having the Q and M on our door step. Everyone... More
