The Allotment Vegan Eatery
Excellent food, staff professional and friendly. Overall a very nice eating experience. Would definitely recommend The Allotment.
Lovely food, beautifully presented
Service was excellent, each dish was explained by the staff
Menu is quite limited, would benefit from a greater choice.
Delicious food and very fresh. A great variety and very original flavours.
Lovely staff and delicious food. It was a fairly quiet evening and despite taking our time over dinner and being the last to leave we didn't feel at all rushed by the staff.
I’m not vegan but visited with a friend who is, I was bowled over by the whole experience. Wonderful food, flavoursome , beautifully presented and attentive service. Will definitely visit again when I’m next visiting Manchester. Love this place.
starter of soup was good
main of cauliflower and sweet potato was disappointing... had many a better cooked cauliflower and there was nothing special about this dish
dessert was seriously disappointing... the kind of congealed raw wadge that gives vegan food a bad name (the blood orange sorbet was nice though)
Really, really enjoyed our meal! We decided to go for the 10 course meal and were not disappointed at all. The food was absolutely beautiful, the staff were lovely and the vibe in the restaurant was lovely and peaceful.
The waitress overheard that it was my birthday and brought out the last dessert course with a candle in it, which was lovely!
Would recommend to anyone!
The food was incredible and the service was lovely! The restaurant also looks nice and has a great atmosphere. I was a little surprised at the price of the food as Vegan food should tend to be lower in price than meals including meat etc... but it was worth it!
We were sat near the toilets. The door to the toilets was constantly left open and there was a draft which made us cold. We must have got up and closed the door more than a dozen times during the meal. A door closer would have solved the problem. Otherwise the food was good and the vegans in the party really enjoyed the choice.
Wow wow wow wow wow!
We absolutely loved it. Every dish was great and I think we tried most of them. Beautifully presented and oh so tasty.
Let's not forget the service. Our server was really sweet, fun and full of info and advice. She was massively passionate about the place.
Cheese! They had a cheese plate and if there is one thing we have struggled with since becoming vegan, it's the cheese. All 3 cheeses were good. We could not believ our luck.
If you are a veggie or a vegan, or have a regular diet and you just want to try something different then the Allotment has a lot to offer.
I went when it was in stockport and was really disappointed with the new one, so overpriced and the food barely tasted of anything. The service wasnt great anyway, didnt get a new knife and fork and had to steal of another table and found the wait staff a bit rude
Amazing food, great space and friendly service. Will return.
Awesome experience 👌
This is an amazing restaurant, really good food and great service.
Too much fried food. Not what a vegan restaurant should be about.
I went to the Allotment for my birthday dinner with a friend who was also having a birthday. I am vegan and she is Coeliac so it was great that we could both eat without being overcautious about everything. We had the Sunday roast dinner with a side of hot wings and a cocktail each. The staff were very knowledgeable and attentetive without being over bearing. The food was gorgeous. Three courses for £25 was fabulous value. I will be back and might try the taster menu next time. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening. We are not vegan but I have to say we were both immensely impressed with the quality and flavour of the food and the generous portions. Will definitely return.
I would highly recommend the Allotment to ANY diners - you do not have to be vegan to love the food here.
The staff were well informed about the dishes and so polite.
The presentation of the food was excellent (definitely worth a photo!) and the taste lived up to the look!
It was my birthday lunch and I was definitely not disappointed - we will be back.
Excellent food, fab flavours, beautifully presented and expertly explained - could easily forget this is vegan. Very welcoming and attentive staff. Nice restaurant space but sadly few other customers at the time we were there so felt a little empty - most definitely undeserved. Probably need to add a few more dishes for each course for us to be regular visitors, but will certainly come again. Thank you for a lovely meal!
Absolutely loved our visit. Our waitress was wonderful, accommodating, warm and friendly and the meal was gorgeous
Bland food not worth the money, I cook better vegan food and expected a treat.
Food very disappointing in terms of taste/finesse/colours/textures.
Taste main disappointment. Sweet corn soup bland , beignets inedible. Cauliflower 3 ways uninspired ...lack of protein in meal. Skipped dessert ...2 out of the party of 4 chose dessert but no one impressed.
Ordered 3 sides with mains. Told 1 unavailable (table booked for 7pm)
One arrived and the third never appeared. Despite telling waitress about this and being assured we would not be charged for it, we were charged for it!
We had looked forward to the evening so much but sadly so very disappointing!
I really enjoyed the starter (soup) but my main was pretty tasteless and the collection of ingredients seemed rather random. I ordered spicy wings as a side, which looked really tempting but were unbearably salty. My friends had the other main on offer and they were both unimpressed. The food does look colourful and each dish seems to involve myriad cooking techniques, but my main just didn't taste of anything. It's quite expensive for what it is. On a more positive note... Staff were superbly attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. There is a very relaxed ambience. I really liked the plates.
Had 10 course menu... Exceeded all expectations. Awesome.
Interesting and tasty food served in a relaxed atmosphere by people who care about their restaurant. All the staff were very welcoming and laid back. The standard of presentation was sharp.
They don’t cheat you with veggi bullion but make your food from scratch! You can expierence all the natural taste from their passionate efforts!!
Amazing food!! Amazing service!! I don't live in Manchester but if I did this would be one of my go to places . Ate here with a meat eater best friend who was just as impressed as I was. The best vegan restaurant I have ever eaten at , delicious food and lots of choices!! We chose the A la Carte menu but if going for lunch again could quite easily be tempted by the taster menus to try more of the delicious dishes on offer.
I was having a catch up with my best friend who lives in the area and it was a nice quiet place to talk and have a catch up over lunch.
The staff are absolutely lovely and give you a real welcome and explained all the dishes well. Looking forward to my next trip to Manchester so I can eat here again!! Fantastic dining experience!!!
Great atmosphere, waitress was so nice! Definitely recommended
I am not a vegan but
the quality was very good and a lovely place.
we had also amazing chats with the people that worked.
Nice venue and staff are great but the food is ridiculously overpriced for what it is. Paying £15 for what is essentially just a cauliflower is stupid - obviously they are limited in what they can serve as a vegan restaurant, but having been to another vegan restaurant the next night there are definitely better options out there. Presentation was generally abysmal, my starter genuinely looked like excrement on a plate. They also advertise 3 course for £30 on the website for Saturday or Sunday but we were told that deal was only Monday - Thursday. Although the funniest thing was that a 3 course meal actually came to less than £30 so it would have been in their interest to offer us that deal. Thoroughly dissapointed.
My partner and I went for the 10 course menu for my 30th birthday, and it was a truly special experience and a really lovely way to spend an afternoon.
The staff were all lovely and the new restaurant is cosy and tastefully decorated.
The found was outstanding, there was nothing we didn't eat. Clean plates for every course!
I would definitely recommend the taster menu as the selection was so diverse.
Very impressed :)
Not a vegan, but the taste, quality and presentation of the food on the night would encourage me to try more vegan food. The staff were super friendly and explained the content of each dish.
Amazing experience! Gorgeous and inventive vegan dining for a special occasion - but in a totally unpretentious and enjoyable setting. Will definitely return - with non-vegans next time :)
Delicious and beautiful vegan food, we will be regular customers.
Beautiful food. Definitely coming back. The buffalo wings are the best I’ve ever tasted
Fabulous food and everyone should try this restaurant even meat eaters
Excellent quality, inventive food. Our server was friendly, extremely informative and effecient. The decor and seating is comfortable and inviting. Overall a lovely experience.
Interesting good. Great staff. Attentive without being intrusive.
Good food, we weren't convinced by the ice cream and jerk fruit but everything else was really lovely. Not the best atmosphere as it was very quiet for a saturday lunchtime.
The service was excellent.
Choice from a la Carte limited to 2 items per course no mention of specials if available happy with selections good but not great
Wine good value
