Lovely garden

Beautiful meals, worth the wait. Very relaxing space in the back garden. Impressive amount of fresh herbs. Menu choice covering most of cravings but short enough to focus on the quality and taste. Thanks, will come back for sure.

Whilst none of the family are vegetarian this has become a firm family favourite! Fantastic place, with a great menu and wonderful service. On a sunny day eating out in the garden is also a real treat, feels like being in a secret garden with the hustle and bustle of town centre live just over the wall but feeling a... More

Myself and partner had a fantastic lunch today. I had the lasagne with toffuti with side salad, partner had one of the specials which was a Morrocan stew with naan and we shared some chips. We also had the chocolate goo cake (which definately lives up to its expectations!) with vanilla ice cream, a soy cappuccino and a soy caramel... More

Forget the outside of this place, once inside you could be anywhere! It was lovely and quaint and the manageress was really friendly and explained the menu to us personally rather than just handing out a menu. As a vegetarian I was spoilt for choice and my gluten free friend was catered for without a blink of an eye. The... More

I visited as a vegetarian, part time vegan with my husband based on trip advisor reviews. The choices were interesting and imaginative which was really nice. There were a few people in the cafe and the atmosphere was quiet and friendly. We chose the soup and sandwich option the soup was beautiful and the portion sizes were really generous. Freshly...

The restaurant is really small but there is a lovely garden to the rear. We ate outside and the surroundings are very pleasant with lots of flowers. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I will definitely go again.
