my favourite lasagne

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... read 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.

Value for money! Great relaxed atmosphere! Delicious, FRESH, well prepared food! I enjoy regularly eating out and trying different food and this is by far my favourite place to eat in all of the local restaurants/cafes in my local area, including Wigan and Manchester. Me and my girlfriend regularly visit and have never been disappointed. Whenever we try something new... More

We really didn't know what to expect from The Coven. Like most people, we'd heard great things about 'Wigan's little gem' and the restaurant didn't disappoint! Out of four of us, only one was a veggie so we really did have high expectations! The food was amazing and the staff were friendly and very accommodating. Yes the venue is small,... More

Went here because of all the rave reviews, but we won't be going back. Place was empty when we got there - which says a lot. I'm not veggie, but my partner is and whenever we eat out, I eat veggie cos we like to share. My partner had the lasagne special and it was just a big bowl of... More

We stumbled across the Coven a few years ago and even though we are not vegetarian we decided to give it a try, we didn’t regret it at all. Small and quirky, sometimes you may be asked to share a table with others, but it’s no problem. A couple of specials on the board and a very good menu, all... More
