Lovely food, great service, it just needed a bit of a clean

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.

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.

Popped in for a leisurely lunch in the charming garden at the back. (an unexpected delight). We had butternut curry and lasagne - both excellent. Eton mess and rhubarb crumble. Lots of interesting ingredients, and everything was really tasty.

We are regulars at the Coven, and have tried every dish on the menu. Last night my husband had avocado bruschetta followed by Moroccan stew. He was tempted by asparagus bruschetta, but just loves the avocado one. He had the stew last time we ate here, and loves the balanced mix of warm spices. I really like the stuffed peppers,... More

A friend and I popped in for a quick lunch. Its not in the most salubrious of areas but don't let that put you off. Neither of us are veggies but we were impressed by the range on the menu and specials board. Settled for the Moroccan Veggie Stew with Naan - it was wonderful - just the right level... More

I come here quite often, usually once a week at least when my boyfriend is visiting me, and I have never been disappointed. I love coming here as a vegetarian because it's so tricky to find somewhere to eat in this town that you know is definitely free from animal products and is also good for me (green soup is... More

My grand-daughter has coeliac disease and we'd heard The Coven serves gluten-free meals. The restaurant is indeed very small but the food is cooked to order and I couldn't fault it. Because it's freshly made you naturally have to wait a little, but this is infinitely preferable to fast-food rubbish. I had the very tasty vegetable soup which must have... More

Not sure what we expected, had read the reviews so despite not being a veggie we have it a go. Service was a little too laid back for my liking but it was service with a cheery smile, food was very nice and plentiful. Price was very reasonable. Overall not disappointed.
