We loved this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and the portions were extremely generous, especially the puddings! There is plenty of choice and all three of us very much enjoyed our meal. The mushroom wellington and beetroot croquettes were particularly yummy. Even the meat eater amongst us was impressed with his meal and left feeling satisfyingly full. Highly recommended.

This was our second visit and we were not disappointed.- Moroccan chickpea dish was huge and delicious. Great children's menu - macaroni cheese and garlic bread was a hit with our son. They even made him a babycinno to finish! Friendly staff, lovely surroundings, We'll definitely be back again when we're next visiting the area.

So far, I have been three times. First time, I went for an all-day breakfast - tasty. Second time, I had a Vegan Thai Curry (which was amazing). Third time, I had a Vegan burger (black bean and something - they rotate them). This is pictured, after a few bites. SO GOOD! Had a mango sorbet and chocolate mousse dessert,... More

We visited this weekend as a family after reading the glowing reviews on here. It is very much a middle class venue - the place oozes middle-class-dom if you look around - which is fine but its not quite the more hippy style I would have expected - they have curtains like you would find in an elderly persons lounge...

Have come here many a time in the past, and it just gets better. Head Chef Chris is very friendly, honest, and looking at other reviews it's nice to see them take comments on board for improvement rather than get defensive like I know other establishments to (Rivergarden in Thorpe). Nothing to improve upon for us though, the goats cheese... More

Food was delicious, vegetarian and vegan menu, more unusual dishes, not run of the mill. Friendly and helpful staff, very good evening.
