Herbies is one of my all time favourite restaurants, even though I am no longer vegan. The portions are tasty and hearty. I've never left disappointed, so I was really excited when I realised my sister had booked it for my hen do. The staff were accommodating and allowed us to bring our own bubbles. The atmosphere is warm and... More

I first visited Herbies in 1993. Twenty-three years later going there is still a treat. Lots of vegan dishes and vegan options. I'm now in my fifties, so find that I can only manage a main course and a drink - their portions are VERY generous, probably due to being so wholefood and vegetable-based. The serving staff come and go,... More

As a vegetarian I was excited to find this restaurant on a trip to the area and after reading the reviews I booked a table for me and my meat eater partner one evening. The restaurant was busy so booking recommended, the service was fine and attentive. We ordered a starter to share of Mexican platter with Nachos and dips...nothing... More

Since I've eaten here before and recommended it to veggie and open-minded foodie friends, I mentioned this as one of the options for a dinner out with a friend this past week, especially as my friend hadn't dined at Herbies before. I'm reviewing purely for my own experience, but I will add that we were both very happy with our... More

I've been there with vegan friends. They loved their food, I didn't, but that was only a bad choice.

My second visit to Herbies, and once again I opted for the lunchtime special of dhal with naan bread and 3 salads in a bowl, for the absurdly cheap price of £5:95. I thought the ginger beer was so-so on my first visit, so this time I went for one of their fruit juices, a much better option. The dhal... More

My boyfriend and I (both vegan) visited Herbies today (14/09/16) and were really impressed. We were torn between Herbies and The Plant Cafe but chose Herbies after remembering passing by on our visits to Exeter earlier in the year. We both had the spicy mexican burger with wedges, salad and garlic bread - salad and garlic bread as extra sides.... More

Went as a family on a Friday evening. Very impressed with the freshness and the flavours of the food, and the prices! As others have said, it doesn't have much ambience, and to my mind it's a bit of a cross between a cafe and a restaurant and certainly not fine dining, but otherwise it's all good!

This is a veggie restaurant that does a very good job preparing veggie food in the style of various cuisines. There was an Indonesian satay, an Italian lasagna and Moroccan tagine, in addition to more prosaic items. All very tasty and well spiced. Soup was excellent. Desserts equally so--probably too much so. The wait staff was very friendly, cheerful and... More
