The Coven is a small café/restaurant with a big heart. Wholly vegetarian, with plenty of vegan options. The staff serve with love, and are knowledgeable about the food, so they can advise you on what can be prepared vegan and/or gluten-free. Most of the time, The Coven is a café, and it is a great place to pop in for... More

I have visited the Coven on 2 occasions, the first I ordered the breakfast that was hearty and delicious, I was particularly impressed that each item on the plate had an excellent individual flavour. My second occasion I ordered a mushroom burger, the burger was huge and the texture and taste was superb. I'm not a vegetarian, but the food... More

When (party of 8) arrived we were told that there were issues with the cooker. They asked if it would be OK if we were provided with a 'banquet' as and when it was ready (rather than all meals arriving at the same time). We agreed and didn't regret it. We had a hint of what to expect but each... More

After being vegetarian for many years before finally transitioning to Vegan two years ago The Coven is my little piece of heaven for food. They cater for all tastes and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxing. It is definitely Wigan's "little hidden gem". A must if you visit Wigan for shopping or business.

The Coven now opens until 2pm on Sunday and we had lunch there today. Freshly made soup that really was to die for. Kale, spinach, leek, courgette etc, a medley of green vegetables with lemon and ginger to warm you up on a cold November day. It was perfect. So lucky to have this friendly welcoming restaurant

Lovely laid back place that I can't believe has been here 4+ years! Gorgeous mismatched style that goes perfectly with the homely welcoming atmosphere. Don't come expecting bells and whistles, there are only a few tables, the loo isnt part of the building, you access it through the lovley hidden garden, the food choices are read out to you, not...
