“great lunch - especially for vegetarians”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

1847 is a vegetarian bistro located just slightly away from Piccadilly more-or-less opposite the wonderful art gallery. Had a lovely lunch here, nicely relaxed with the service just right. Not too fast and not too slow. We each had two courses and the portions sizes were perfect for lunch. Good choice of dishes without there being too many. We both thought the food was tasty and not too heavy or rich.

The waitress was helpful in pointing out that if we had the lunch time special offer (a main plus a glass of wine) it was cheaper than if you had the main course on its own. We could use this offer even though we had starters and coffees. If you were super hungry you'd need to order side dishes too and there's no bread served automatically. That's all fine for lunch when you don't want to be stuffed.

You automatically get a glass of water which is topped up during your meal. I'd have preferred mine to be a little cooler as it was tepid - I like water to be tap cold, not fridge cold. But that's a minor grumble.

As a veggie it is a treat to have choice and even more so to have a choice of meals not all involving masses of cheese (I love cheese, but know that my food does not have to be dominated by it). I chose the beetroot pancake for starters and aubergine snitzel for main. Both lovely.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Three meat eaters, one vegetarian, we all thought our food was excellent. The mock 'fish and chips' was amazing and everything was just so tasty. Good service, good decor, the restaurant lacked a little ambience because it was very quiet, but other than that, full marks.

“Sensational!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

I recently visited this restaurant for a birthday meal; as another reviewer has said, I'm glad I ignored some of the negative comments below. We were greeted and shown to our table with a smile and the good service continued throughout. Amongst the dishes, we chose the chefs trio of starters (which are actually 3 miniatures of dishes on the starter menu) and the creative halloumi fish and chips, which came served with delicious pea puree and salad garnish. Every bit of it was so tasty; I love fish and chips but could happily give it up and just eat this instead. There is also a good range of wine options on offer.

I can't wait to come back when another special occasion rolls around; though I might make a cheeky visit meanwhile!

“Good value veggie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

My husband had raved about this place following a visit there with our daughter. I was a little sceptical, having read mixed reviews. On an extremely hot Saturday, we were shown to our seats and our water glasses were filled straight away, even before our order was taken. Service was prompt and friendly, food delicious and good value (main + a drink £10). During our meal our water glasses were filled twice more, without us having to ask. A very pleasant experience.
