Exquisite vegetarian food, there are so few veggie restaurants in Central England and 5 of us drove long journeys in anticipation after reading an intriguing magazine feature on 1847. (Odd name, it's the year the Vegetarian Society was formed apparently). Carefully judged, imaginative and unusual dishes, nothing ordinary, everything special and beautifully presented, strewn with edible flowers and micro greens.. Smoked ice cream was unmissable.. Beer battered Halloumi with a tangy lemon curd was a treat, wafer thin fresh cucumber water served throughout lunch.. this is the best veggie restaurant I've found outside London, Edinburgh, Bristol and Brighton. A much needed, long awaited necessity, pleasure & luxury. Above all, this is food for everybody with imagination and a desire for innovation... No need to be vegetarian to eat food like this, everybody can eat there. Plenty to eat too, the perfect amount.
Great service, stylish contemporary interior in pale, dove grey, cool music, unintrusive. Can't wait to return.
