I really didn’t want to post a negative review as I love the concept and the fact that the Oak Tree and Acorn are catering for vegans and making it more accessible. However I feel that things could sadly be improved and felt the need...More

Absolutely superb vegan restaurant with a fab menu incorporating both veganised favourites like ribs, with pure vegetable dishes like stir fry. Something for everyone. Absolutely loved it. So exciting to be able to pick from a whole vegan menu.

Plesent surroundings and lovely staff. Quick service. We ordered 2 beers but found that the glasses and cutlery were a bit grubby. We didn't use glasses in the end and polished the cutlery with the napkins ourselves before using them. All the food was very...More

This is a pleasant restaurant - good menu and great service. However, prices seem to have crept up since my last visit. Our bill was close to £70 for two of us. Although we enjoyed it, it most definitely didn't feel like value for money....More

Four of us enjoyed an evening at the vegan restaurant in Leigh-on-Sea. My wife and I have been to this restaurant twice before, but have been unimpressed. Since then the ownership has changed and the improvement is very obvious. The layout of the restaurant has...More

Thank you very much for your review and glad you enjoyed your visit. Just one thing though, we have had the same Owners since the day we opened - in 2013!!! We have just grown and expanded! Looking forward to seeing you again soon

Mediocre food, soulless atmosphere, not particularly good value. Staff were nice enough, but I found everything else just uninspiring. It seems that many non-vegans really think that vegan food is awful, and nothing here is going to change their minds about that.
