I never knew how much I needed The Coven until I visited there. I have been vegan for 7 months now. Although I receive derision for my choices, I try not to force my beliefs onto others.

Another visit to The Covern food delish nothing to much for the staff who are more than willing to advise on ingredients and cooking methods Nothing appears pre- prepared so no instant micro dishes here Optional offer of gluten noodles without being requested appreciated .... 5* staff and customer satisfaction

We went to The Coven for an evening out and the food and service were great as usual. The Coven is a small cafe/restaurant which serves good, tasty vegetarian (they do vegan too) food without it being prissy or wholesome. The ambience is lovely - really warm, friendly and relaxed and the staff are great. There is a low-key political... More

The coven is a lovely, welcoming little cafe tucked aqay in a quaint cobbled Street behind the bus station and opposite the independent vinyl record store. The food is extremely tasty with plenty of Vegan and gluten free options. I had the vegan breakfast and the mushroom burger on two separate occasions, both of which I would highly recommend. The...

We love this place and eat here regularly. The food is absolutely superb - freshly made and personalised to individual needs and preferences. The service is friendly and personal. Would happily recommended this place to vegans and omnivores alike - in fact I encourage everyone to try it to experience just how good vegan food can be!

Deliciously innovative veggie and vegan food. Had soup, mushroom burger and heavenly puds. The lady on the next table said she didn't want the meal to end... I know just what she meant. Will definitely call again when in the area.

I booked a meal last night for Roger and myself in this fabulous Veggie venue. I have been quite a few times, and always felt welcome and part of the place. It has a fantastic Aura, with excellent conversation with the lovely ladies, at no extra cost. They are so welcoming and will go the extra mile to make you... More
