A meal at Food for Friends has become a birthday tradition since first visiting around 13 years ago. The menu evolves year on year and always surprises us with inventive, delicious and top quality dishes. Last night was the seventh anniversary of my husband proposing to me in the restaurant on my 50th Birthday. Sublime food and delightful service.

We went to Food for Friends as two colleagues to celebrate a work anniversary. The staff couldn't do enough for us, and even brought us a special tablet with the words Happy Anniversary on it which was lovely. The food was plentiful - we had the kale, pecan and blue cheese salad which was delicious. I am not a vegetarian, but really enjoyed the food and will come back.

Having eaten here several times over the years this time was unfortunately a huge disappointment. They were missing items from the menu that were up on their site, the burger was dry with some pretty poor buns and the service whilst friendly, was slow.

Lovely vegetarian food - I had a roasted root salad and it reminded me just how unadventurous I am when preparing salads - this was a riot of colours and tastes. And definitely a full meal, had difficulty in finishing the pudding even though it was gorgeous.

The food was outstandingly delicious and the service was most endearing. The South African waitress with black hair and tattoos on her arms was a real sweetherat. Will definitely come back!

We had a nice meal here yesterday. food and service was great. We had a dog and the area you'd sit at was definitely not as nice as the "other inside locations". However, we managed to get a table outside on the pavement - the weather was nice and we enjoyed it.

Lovely venue, very comfortable. Tables are close together which was a little concerning. Excellent service, very happy to answer questions.
Haloumi starter delicious with a tomato dip. Vegetable risotto disappointing, very stodgy. Afogato lovely but way too many candied walnuts. Just crumbling a couple over the top would be better, way too sweet. Cocktails limited. Highland pink gin with raspberries only had one raspberry, the rest were strawberries ☹️ Expensive for quality of food and drinks. Cannot fault the service though.

Not my first visit and won't be the last either, I put 4* just because I chose the burger and the fried mushroom was a bit heavy for me, but that is me. I highly recommend this restaurant, the food is amazing and full of taste!!Also the waitress who served us was great! Can't wait to go there again.

We went for a birthday meal with a yeast, sesame, dairy intolerant birthday girl and they looked after us so well and were so good with her requirements. Service was super friendly, food was OUTSTANDING and I can’t wait to go back again! Good value for money and we even got given a little birthday treat for our friend it was so lovely x

The food was incredible, might be the best vegan cuisine I've ever had. The ambience and music were just right. The staff were wonderful. This review isn't exaggerating, genuinely a flawless dinner.

Visited Food For Friends for our anniversary. Met with a very friendly welcome. Food was imaginative and excellent. Service was attentive. A lovely final touch with complimentary strawberries and chocolate truffle with a chocolate written ‘happy anniversary’.
