Went there for the first time. The staff are welcoming. The good choice of vegan n vegi menus. The food was wow. The Meze was excellent. Followed by the Chinese spiced fritters. Real shame not room for desert. Looking forward to a return soon.

We have not visited the previous location for the Coven but we were delivering some artwork to the Old Court building where the Coven has relocated. The welcome from both the owner and staff was very friendly and we would certainly call again.

During the day you can use car parks such as Tge Galleries or the Bus Station which are close. After 6.39 you can park on this street. It's always best to book for an evening visit. Regards, Sue
