From our experience I wouldn’t go again if I was in a rush, not even sure why there was such a delay as other diners seemed to have their meals and ours was on the set lunch menu, so should have been routine and out...More

It is a warm and welcoming spot in the middle of Carmarthen. Amazing and imaginative food with friendly staff making you feel at home. Regular events celebrating all aspects of life from music to vegan food.

5 stars!!! What a fantastic place- a real gem!!! Wholesome and imaginative dishes created using local organic produce from ethical suppliers. Our table were a mix of vegan and meat eaters and all dishes were delicious- I especially loved the Dahl which was so flavoursome......More

Have lunched here on a number of occasions and brought a vegetarian friend for an evening meal in August. She loved it and is used to far more cosmopolitan places than Carmartthen. Staff here are brilliant and the food is great. My only quibble is...More

A good meal in a light and comfortable atmosphere. The vegetarian meals were very good but the meat-based burgers were a little disappointing. We will all return again but will stick to the very good vegetarian options.

We visited The Warren purely based on the 5 star Trip Adviser rating. I can safely say it deserves that rating. Firstly, the Coaltown coffee was unbelievably tasty. I had a flat white and my wife had a decaf Latte, both were deliciously smooth and...More

Perfect place for a coffee and super menu, very friendly service and great atmosphere in lovely surroundings. My dog was happy too. Carmarthen is very lucky to have this place.

The most amazing food that felt indulgent, was SO full of flavour and yet fairly healthy. Friendly staff and dog friendly. Lots of tables and space. Would recommend without hesitation.

Hi there. I have a question. I'm looking at the menu for 'The Warren' and I just don't get it. Is it a cafe, a restaurant or a bit of both? I would consider myself an open minded, knowledgable person when it comes to food but the menu seems to be more along the lines of a healthfood restaurant. If I were in London I'd get it, but Carmarthen? This seems to be catering for a very niche demographic. It smacks of a vegitarian menu with a bit of meat thrown in as an after thought. I will try most anything and, as I said, I try to be open minded. However, there is little on this menu that would tempt me through the door. I really hope this is a success, Carmarthen needs it, but if I don't get it, I'm sure that others won't. I hope the friends and backers of the owner return regulaly to support them through the opening stages.
