Celebrated a friend's birthday 🎂

We spent a fabulous evening at this amazing vegetarian restaurant. The food was outstanding with amazing flavours, textures and presentation. The mushroom Wellington was a real hit with 2 of us. The stem ginger ice-cream 🍦 was refreshing, creamy and delicious. If only we didn't live so far away... read more

I have to say the food was really good and made it memorable. The problem for me was the service, had been out for a walk and was dressed in casual clothes and got the dirtiest looks from a waitress who pretty much ignored us the entire time we were there. If you want good food then go, but don't... More

My daughter is vegetarian and her boyfriend is vegan, they have been interested in visiting this cafe for some time so we decided to treat them to lunch. I am not adverse to opting for vegetarian choices in other establishments and happy to try anywhere new so I approached lunch with an open mind. Both my husband and I chose... More

Was looking forward to finally eating at this highly recommended restaurant specialising in all vegetarian food. I ordered a Beetroot, barley & split pea burger. The burger was dry, salty and otherwise lacking in flavour. The bun too was dry and the relish was lacking in tang or bite with big slices of what appeared to be spring onion. The... More

This restaurant is well presented, gives a comfortable warm feeling however not sure the day we visited if the staff was lethargic or tired! There were dead flies around the seating area, our table wasn't cleared appropriately in between the meals, and the staff didn't seem to be vigilant enough if you needed their assistance..... The food was alright, the... More

After hearing only good things, we went for a Meal at Sunday lunchtime. The mushroom Wellington was superb! Service was friendly and efficient, but still relaxing and we felt unhurried. Will be visiting again to sample more of the menu.

My family and I visited the restaurant on various occasions and each time both the food and service has been great! I am the only vegetarian in the family however all other family members still thoroughly enjoy the food and report 'not missing the meat'. My only criticism/suggestion would be that the menu is changed more frequently. Even though there... More

Food has great presentation and flavour and staff are always friendly and helpful. This is a restaurant where you can take anyone who loves food and they... More

I had been wanting to try this place for ages, located just out of Norwich in Trowse! I went for the spicy burrito and my friend had the mushroom wellington both were delicious! The dessert was a vegan bannoffee pie it may have even been raw vegan! It was so good. I will definitely return
