I'm not a vegetarian but they do only vegetarian food and it is very good and has a distinctive and interesting style. The staff are usually friendly but it depends who you get as they recruit 'volunteers' who have to commit to x amount of hours per week in order to live at the 'retreat' (not really a volunteering ethos)....

Smoothies nice, more of an iced crush though. Sandwiches tasted quite dry, an addition of mayonnaise/butter or an alternative depending on your taste would have been nice along with a more ample serving of the pear in the pear and stilton and onion chutney to accompany the goats cheese would have improved things. Service slow. Relaxing atmosphere.

I had a salad and sandwiches, nice big portions. I also had tea with soya milk, I had to ask for vegan cake but the staff were friendly and helpful and checked the ingredients for me. All round a nice place for lunch, nice and relaxing.

Popped in for a quick lunch with my wife. Ordered the large soup of the day which was mushroom. It was definitely a large bowl of soup, tasty and the bread was exceptional. Very, very good value for money and the little garden at the back is recommended.
