We came here on a Saturday lunch visit whilst shopping at the wonderful Stroud Farmers Market. It was a great experience. We both had a big bowl of Tuscan White Bean and Tomato soup and we shared a toasted goats cheese, beetroot and red onion...More

We stopped here for lunch when on a short exploratory visit to Stroud - it hasn’t featured on our recent travels much except to pass through. This very popular place serves interesting and tasty food based on our mushroom risotto (plus observation of other meals...More

Great tasting vego food in a slightly Bohemian setting. A small bunch of flowers at each table adds a nice touch. Highly recommended.

I've had a coffee here before while travelling for work but didn't get a chance to eat last time so really glad I came back today for lunch. My Buddha Bowl was delicious and the staff were really happy to remove the beans from it...More
