“Intimate friendly veggie restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We took my partner's parents here for their Diamond (60th) wedding anniversary treat. I am the only veggie but all of us like to eat vegetarian and I get truly fed-up with the usual veggie cuisine offered at most restaurants and Inns in the area (e.g. stuffed mushrooms or pasta... same price as roast dinner!!) Very small and intimate - the food was delicious; prepared from all the fresh and finest ingredients and spiced with a lot of love. The waitresses were delightful .. and when they discovered it was Fay & Vic's special day they gave them after dinner brandy & port on the house. We had a lovely evening and between us managed three courses - which is very unusual!! The portions were just right and everything was perfect. We are so glad we decided to take our very young at heart favourite couple here.

“Best veggie restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is beyond a doubt the best veggie restaurant. Its menu is varied and its choices for vegans are delicious and inclusive. The Chockerbocker glory is particularly recommended. It's also reasonably priced, the portions are generous and I will definitely be returning again.

“Good choice and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

There is a really nice choice of food here which was well cooked and presented.

It was a little quiet when we ate here so not much of an atmosphere, it was mid week however.

All in all, a good place to eat.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Beautiful restaurant with great ambience. A very interesting menu and the food was delicious! Staff were friendly and efficient. This is the best vegetarian meal I have ever eaten and on my return home I ordered the Bean Inn cook book!

“Fabulous Vegetarian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

What a great treat this is for vegetarians and vegans. The choice is varied and includes so many things other restaurants dont bother with especially tofu etc.

I could have done with many more days to eat there and try everything - maybe they could do a taster plate?

I wish Wadebridge could have somewhere just as special.

Well done and we look forward to our next visit!

Elizabeth and Alan
