Great local venue and restaurant

This restaurant has been on the scene for ages and it keeps improving. It's getting more and more vegan friendly - still more progress to make there - but it's located in a lovely building with two distinct spaces and a diverse menu. Staff are always attentive and extremely knowledgable and helpful. It's a super venue for large groups too and is popular.

Pros: Superb staff, Extensive menu, Lovely setting
Cons: Pricey-ish, Needs more vegan items

The Waiting Room is a local restaurant for me serving vegetarian and vegan food and drinks. The menu changes with the seasons so you will always be able to choose something different every time you visit. The restaurant also has live performances on a Sunday evening that can range from music to poetry readings.

Pros: Vegan Menu, Many Options, Great Staff

When you eat in the Waiting Room, you feel like you're in someone's front room, it's really cosy and familiar - it's a nice place for a casual lunch, but also good for a special occasion in the evening. It's quite a small menu, usually with two or three tempting vegan options. The portion sizes are good, the staff are really accommodating and friendly, and it's generally a really nice place to be.

We had a delicious lunch here. The vegan red pepper smoked paprika chickpea goulash was amazing. One of us had the spicy chilli enchilada and he found it filling and very tasty. Very friendly service.
Highly recommend The Waiting Room.

Went here planning on having a cup of tea and the food looked so amazing we ended up having something off menu (so it was vegan) and had chick oea and lentil chill with rice, a lovely salad and sesame coated potatoes. Despite being early on in the day the place was still packed. Absolutely lovely food.. We will definitely go back.

Pros: Lovely food, Accommodating staff, Nice atmosphere
Cons: none

Went here a while ago for an evening meal with friends,food was lovely & filling but ordered food which was supposed to come with salad,but when it arrived it came with potatoes when I queried this she said they were out of salad!!! A veggy restaurant without salad (Wierd).Staff unapologetic & not well informed.

Brilliant food, awesome food

Go to this restaurant very often, around once a month and I've never had a bad meal yet! The food is so good.
The menu changes with the seasons, and the variety on the menu is very good. Would highly suggest the plait! Service is good and friendly. The price can be a touch high, but that is more than made up with the portion size and the quality of the food.
Usually there is entertainment on a Sunday night. I have suggested this place to many friends and all have had a brilliant time and become regular themselves.
Would highly recommend a visit, atmosphere is lovely on a night and feels warm and welcoming.

Pros: Superb food, Nice atmosphere, Good portions
Cons: None!

I can't knock this place, it's vegetarian so for me is a priority dining venue. The menu is heavily dairy-based but there are vegan options available every day. They offer a large range of main courses and sandwiches and you can see they are trying to create a gourmet type of experience. The premises themselves are very pleasant, but the staff appear to change a lot and tend to be young people not interested in the vegetarian ethic. Personally, I think a trip here is wonderful and it's great to see it doing well.

Pros: decent range of food, too many dairy options
Cons: no soya milk
