couldn't be better. - Edit

What's better than great vegan food, surrounded by rescued animals? Nothing obviously. Perfect, perfect, perfect.

Pros: vegan only animal sanctuary.

Cons: nothing, maybe more indoor seating for raining day

Amazing food and staff - Edit

The food was amazing and the staff were really kind. Highly recommend this place. It's a brilliant place to take kids too. There is a secure outdoor area for kids to play in. Indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of options on the menu including mock chicken burger, mock fish fingers and mock bacon. I will defiantly be going back.

Incredible day out! Inspiring! - Edit

This place is so peaceful. We visited today on a family open day so busier than usual and the cafe has a smaller menu to cater for the large crowds of people.

Dogs are welcome as long as they are on leads. My little Annie loved it.

The best thing about the retreat is to see all the animals healthy and happy. The retreat has the largest amount of rescued pigs in the UK (over 150). The retreat is set over 50 acres in the stunning Kent countryside. All profit goes to taking care of the animals and the cafe is 100% vegan.

I'm looking forward to going back again. In quieter periods you are allowed to go inside to meet the animals with a member of staff, so will update my review then.

100% recommend going, lovely staff and a wonderful way to see happy animals living out there days with love and care.

Pros: 100% vegan, Meeting rescued animals , lovely staff

Cons: None, go there now!

Fab day out - Edit

First proper visit to The Retreat today after dropping a few wildlife casualties there in the past. It's a fabulous place, the animals all look so happy - it made me feel really peaceful. Had a toastie which was lovely and took home a bit of chocolate cake which was absolutely delicious.

The menu has so much choice too. Would definitely highly recommend this place. Fab food, caring staff and happy beautiful animals. I will definitely be making regular visits here from now on!

My happy place - Edit

The Retreat is truly special.
You can enjoy a day here surrounded by hundreds of different rescued animals, and delicious vegan food at the cafe.
With a selection of amazing dishes from a full English to a BLT.
The food is out of this world, and you couldn't ask for a better setting, nor to be supporting better people.

Cannot recommend highly enough!
