We have been regular customers at The Veggie since it opened and Iove the friendly service and high standard of the dishes. You should try the delightful Christmas special - yummy.

I was really excited to finally try The Veggie café after a colleague at work had recommended.. but have been left disappointed. I got to take-away the goats cheese Panini and it was SO dry with hardly any filling. It had no great flavour and the salad which it came with was coated in a horrible dressing. Soup - average....

Although not a veggie I decided to give this place a try for lunch. The halumi ciabatta was amazing. Highly recommended.

We have visited twice and both times the food, service, friendliness of staff, especially Allison, has been great. My husband is a a big meat eater and both times he chose Welsh Rarebit and thoroughly enjoyed it, cost £7.95 and worth every penny. I do like vegetarian food, and this is a good place to eat if you enjoy tasty... More

The food in this restaurant provides vegetarians with a great choice. The food is freshly made and full of flavour. The menu varies regularly. Everything is well presented. Nice cosy atmosphere.

I met family here, two veggies, me and two other non veggies. I had passed this place a few times but it had been closed, it always looks clean and modern. We were not dissapointed. Three of us chose the portobello mushroom burger, which was delicious, served with wedges, hummus a side salad and mango chutney. My son in law... More

I've been going to the Veggie cafe since it first opened. The food is good and varied, but since it has undergone an extension and refurbishment the prices have gone up and I don't think it offers the same value for money that it once did. This is a shame because I now think twice about going there. I recently... More

I visited today with my boyfriend and i was surprised to see how many vegan options there were, all of which sounded tempting! My boyfriend is a meat eater but really enjoyed his panini and the vegan cake we had afterwards! Service with a smile as well, I'll definitely be back.
