There was an interesting variety of dishes all explained wonderfully well by the chef. A lovely twinkly feel to what is a tiny place but all the better for that. Great service. Great food. What a find.

I can recommend chinese friters with noodles, fully loaded omlette and the chips are the best. together with a coffee which knocks the big coffee shops into touch. If... More

I go here as often as I can with my baby daughter, and I'm never disappointed. The food is brilliant (and I'm not a vegetarian) but the owner is really great, so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Don't go to Starbucks or Greggs when you can go round the corner to this place! I can't speak highly enough... More

I've now started to venture into The Coven on my own, it has a lovely welcoming feel about the place and the staff will always chat to you if you fancy it, it's an easy place to escape. The food is so tasty and you don't have to be veggie/vegan to enjoy. I highly recommend the curries they cook up,... More

Quaint little place. Good... More

It has a fantastic welcoming feeling from the minute you walk through the door. We had a omellette and falafel burger and shared a side of proper chips. All was delicious and very well priced. Portions a good size (perhaps a bit to big as we couldn't managed a pudding) not been here for a good while and it's great... More

Taken here by our veggie friends. Food excellent (and I'm not a veggie), particularly the meze and the stack. Puds were good and you get to take your own beer. Will definately visit again.

Went to The Coven to celebrate a friends birthday - I'm not a vegetarian, but was amazed by how much flavour was packed in the dishes. Great food and service, we'll be back!

Booked for lunch in advance. The owners were lovely.The food was nice, would recommend the Meze platter was delicious. Vege burgers were nice, breakfast which mum had was okay. There were no desserts available when we went. Nice selection of teas. Not local to there, went as wanted to try a new vege. Is perfect if you live local. Others... More
