Delicious vegan food - especially enjoyed the small plates (we had cauli wings, roast baby carrots and bruschetta). Our table near the entry was slightly cold.

Food was very simple and overpriced for what it is, not much variety in the food. Not a large range of side dishes (pretty much all potato).
No starter/dessert options on the menu, we had to ask to have one of the small dishes as a starter.
We asked the move tables to somewhere more out of the way and although there were plenty of empty seats we were told we couldn't be moved.
Food itself was nice enough but again not really worth the inflated price.

Absolutely love this restaurant, the food is so good and the staff are lovely! I was excited to see there were some new dishes to try on the menu since I was last there in the summer - it's a great place to go for imaginative, well-made, healthy vegan food.

A lovely evening, the waitress had a nice personality, the food was delicious, the room was decorated simply but effectively to crest a lovely ambience. It was a quiet personal space with none of the loud music pounding away that other venues have

We had a very lovely 3 course meal and wine for our anniversary last night. The venue itself is very cosy and has a really nice atmosphere. All staff were lovely and welcoming. The food was of a very high quality and the choices were really interesting and well presented. Definitely would recommend and also return!

Delicious and fancy food served by lively people. A lot of haute cuisine approaches but with some down home basics in there too. Very nice.

Stunning food and a friendly atmosphere. The baby glazed carrots with tahini and pomegranate were out of this world. Highly recommend the miso & maple hasselback, and the cauliflower wings. A great midweek lunch.

Honestly, I was gutted it was not the experience I was hoping. When in Stockport, I loved it. Weirdly pumping out Xmas tunes, so loud I couldn’t hear my husband on the other side of the table. They seemed too busy - had to ask for drinks order to be taken. And the food - it’s like it can’t decide of it’s fine dining or something more casual. £6 for 4 tiny pieces of mushroom, versus the cauliflower you get a big bowl of. It was a birthday meal, so just feel a little disappointed. The service, while a bit slow, was good. Will try it again and hope for a better experience…

Good food and lots of nice options. Service was a little slow and realistically they needed more front of house staff.

It's not as good as when I last visited in 2019 to be honest, when I raved about how amazing my food tasted. Some of the dishes felt like they lacked something (I had one that was mostly a butternut squash and needed some sauce or something to make it less dry) and the tastes weren't as rich or distinctive as I remembered them to be. Portions could also have been a bit more generous for the price. For instance, the desert we had was called a hazelnut slice but was in reality a few small triangles of hazelnut ganache. Cauliflower wings were great though.

This was my first time in an exclusively vegan restaurant I'm vegan and I also have some food intolerances. It was so nice to be able to eat pretty much anything off the menu. We ordered loads and it was all delicious.

My two friends who aren't vegan also really enjoyed it.

I'm really looking forward to visiting again.

Went for a quiet after work meal with the mother. Fantastic quality, superb service by the lad working yesterday (and all the team), reasonably priced and as a meat eater found some new vegan dishes I liked. Would 100% recommend.

Really tasty dishes, all individually very flavourful and different from the other. Definitely underrated! Only thing I would fault is there were only two members of staff looking after the floor and at busy times that's a lot to ask of them. Management should hire more staff so they aren't so rushed and stretched.

Lovely place with stunning food, although the “large” plates are pretty small at £15 each. Definitely smaller than the average meal served in a restaurant/cafe. Most people would need that and a small plate which isn’t great value. Everything else was lovely, especially the service.

The ambient is lovely. Beautiful decorated, dimmed lights and a pleasant not too loud music in the background. Food was tasty and very nicely presented. I would recommend the share platter if first experience. The service was quick and the personnel very friendly and nice. I will definitely go back!
