The Allotment Vegan Eatery
Great staff fantastic food great place to go 5*................,...................
Lovely meal but service was poor. Even though it was not busy it took a while for someone to take the drinks and good order. Was then told certain items were not available even though it was early. That said the food is amazing so would still go back
Disappointed. It was not good value for money. Avoid.
We ate here last year and it was outstanding - amazing food and service that matched - we were really looking forward to our return visit. This year was not great. Everything was average at best.
I found the restaurant underwhelming following the impression given by the website. Unsure if linked to the fact the restaurant is underground/below street level, the entire place was freezing and the decor very basic/cheap. (Sorry- I really wanted to like it!) Credit to the staff who were super polite and friendly- 5* for them! The food was more street style than I expected and to be honest I struggled to find something that grabbed me on the menu. Albeit my husband demolished all his so kudos to the chef, it might just be my tastebuds. I would say go, for sure; but stick on your comfies (inc a jumper!) and appreciate it’s gonna be tasty, not fancy x
Lovely venue. Food was delicious. Not a great choice on desserts. Would have liked to see fresh fruit, but the hazelnut tart was great. We'll go again and my daughter is there tonight!
Service was slow and the food lacked flavour. Glad I tried it, but wouldn't be back in a hurry.
Amazing experience, really attentive and friendly staff and delicious food! Would 10/10 recommend to everyone! Thanks for a great experience
I always visit this restaurant when I am in Manchester. Great vegan food and good service.
Loved everything except the chocolate orange ‘cheese’cake. This was my first vegan restaurant trip and I was really impressed - the cauliflower started was fab.
This was our first time at a Vegan restaurant. The choice was great. The food arrived quickly . We were eating quite early so it filled up as the time went by. Its a large space which added to the atmosphere. The portion sizes were larger than we had anticipated based on other reviews elsewhere so we slightly over ordered! The only dish that slightly disappointed was the cheesecake. The hazelnut slices easily made up for that! We would go again.
There was a few things missing from the menu which is why I didn't give 5 stars as was slightly disappointed re this. Other than that loved it and will be back :)
Amazing 10/10, the food was exceptional. We had starters, main and desert and each was a delight.
We visited for a late dinner, got informed earlier that they were having trouble cooking larger meals so we ordered smaller ones and a few of each. Really enjoyed everything we had especially the salt and pepper tofu.
We will visit again next time we’re in the area.
Much better than when we dined on a previous occasion - everything was good but not outstanding - an everyday experience rather than anything special. Service was good and the portions generous.
Amazing food, lovely atmosphere, and friendly staff. Will definitely be returning! Cant recommended it enough!
Such a shame there’s no longer a tasting menu, which used to be amazing and we came to Manchester especially for it. It’s a much more standard menu now, nothing special, just ok.
It was a nice atmosphere and the restaurant and staff were nice. I found the food mediocre and a little too try hard to be special without the flavour and presentation. Clearer descriptions on the menu I think might be helpful too.
It was pleasant enough but much nicer vegan eateries in Manchester.
Slow, uncomfortable and did nothing to showcase vegan food.
Loved it. Best vegan meal I have had ever.. in fact, best meal I have had ever! My friend eats meat and could not believe how much she enjoyed her meal! The only thing we can add (if anything, because we loved it) is that the lights were bright, it has more of a café ambience... saying that, it could have just been where we were sitting and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal! Thank you
This is a lovely relaxing place to eat. We found the cost high relative to the food. Limited choice overall and a little lacking in complexity.
As a flexitarian I have always enjoyed eating here. Delicious food, good service and well priced. Great place for all occasions!
Very tasty food indeed. Bursting with flavour. Loved it.
Lovely food, friendly staff and fantastic atmosphere. Great for date nights or special occasions. I'll be back!
We had a very impressive meal at The Allotment - it was a quiet, casual, relaxing venue and the prices were very reasonable! Definitely one to return to!
Absolutely amazing restaurant and the best plant based restaurant that I've visited so far. The food/cuisines are outstanding and the dishes are bursting with great flavour. Absolutely recommending to all!!
Food and choice is excellent. The service was good but unfortunately we watched it be fantastic for everyone else and we were in a bit of a dead spot and our server was also on the bar and therefore didn't notice when we had finished and needed plates clearing and when we needed drinks and we then had to chase our main meal as well. The other servers were so attentive to their designated tables that it was hard to catch their attention when we needed things.
The live music was amazing and we wished it could have been a longer set. I would assume this was a one off experience and wouldn't let it affect going again but it was just a bit of a shame a great night had the edge taken off by not so good service for us.
Really enjoyed lovely food and nice live music
Good quality food in a great ambience. Service really good. Food a little pricey.
We have previously been to the allotment in STOCKPORT before it closed and that was an excellent experience.
The new allotment on Lloyd street in MANCHESTER was disappointing
1- Need more staff
2- Menu is acceptable but not great. Quality of Padrón peppers poor and the mains greasy .
3- Slow service and patchy
4- it was a 50th birthday and the allotment was exclusively selected for this ocassion . I also informed the restaurant in the morning about this . I also informed the waiter on arrival about my wife’s 50th. We did not even have a verbal happy birthday wish and I felt very disappointed about this and embarrassed . A very small simple gesture of thank you for choosing the Allotment would have been enough.
At the present I cannot recommend this restaurant and fallas behind many many excellent restaurants I. manchester
food is excellent and i would return but staff need to improve as it took ages between courses and the plates were not cleared for about half an hour - need to give this feedback so you can improve as a vegan restaurant !
The food was very overpriced and unfortunately wasn't worth the money paid.
Lovely food and great atmosphere with the live music.
First time of visiting great food friendly staff really enjoyed our dining experience here.
First time at a vegan restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend anyone to try.
The food was beautifully presented. Service was a bit slow (possibly due to not enough staff) but this gave us plenty of time to enjoy our food.
The food was interesting and tasty. It was a great opportunity to try new things and the staff were helpful with advice about the food and the wine. The restaurant has a fresh appearance with plants dotted about. We will definitely return!
Very good food - as a non vegan was surprised how great it was. Service was a bit slow?
The food was delicious - I just wish I'd had room for a dessert! The setting and background music were perf and the staff friendly and welcoming.
Really lovely food and friendly staff, excited to try more things.
The food was superb but the speed of service dismal- bad enough that I wont be returning
