Went to Todmorden for the day and decided to have lunch here after seeing as we drove past into town. As a vegetarian I am so used to not having much choice it took me a long time to decide.

Both times I had a different Fritatta from the specials board and with different salads.Every aspect of my meal was great from the celeriac remoulade to the tomato and... More

The bean burrito I had was superb, far tastier then any meat based Mexican meal I've had before, the accompanying side salads also very fresh and tasty. Also sampled a nice local beer. Nice atmosphere and location with huge windows to ppl watch out of of!... More

This tastefully decorated gaff proves that meat free food can be fun and tasty. I would strongly recommend either of the mezzes which are a great combo of small mains and the luscious Bear salads (much of it sourced from the nearby local Incredible Edible co-op farm) and hummus. The specials board is always interesting - I had an amazing... More
