I had Hummus and Pitta which was great. Lots of choice. A bit smokey from the use of a griddle or something so the extraction could be improved - my clothes and hair smelt when i left.

With the ever increasing numbers of diners seeking a more healthy and animal friendly diet, my wife and I were delighted to find this exclusively vegetarian and vegan cafe. The premises are fairly small with limited table numbers but it was good to see them very busy, always an encouraging sign We very much enjoyed our lunch and there was... More

I went with my family none of which are vegetarian or vegan other than me. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and will definitely be returning.

How a Wednesday lunch became very special, especially since various other establishments in the town which were meant to be open were in fact closed and I had an hour to lose before my appointment. Looking at The Mall from the outside, I would never have entered it if I hadn't read the TA reviews. The Wallflower is at the... More

My first time eating at a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. We had a sort of taster menu / tapas arrangement and tried lots of dishes. Very nice. I particularly liked the hummus which I have never liked when buying from a supermarket. We'll done. Definitely worth a try for us meat eaters.

We hired this cafe for a group of around 20 for an evening meal. They usually only open during the day. Many of our party were meat eaters and were apprehensive but it exceeded our expectations. The cafe laid on a tapas style meal with a number of sharing platters being brought out during the course of the evening. We... More

Found this place on line. find it hard to find places that make someone who is vegan not feel like the odd one out! But they have it right, great menu, excellent food and the most polite and friendly staff ever! There is only one big problem the place isn't big enough! Xxx

The Wallflower is a vegetarian cafe without the pretension found in others of its kind. It is situated at the end of a mall away from the busy road. The view from the window is the town car park The atmosphere is folksy, but somewhat greasy as the chef cooks the food in the same room and a lot of... More

The wallflower cafe is tucked away from the high street through an alleyway and next to a car park, so on the face of it , it doesn't sound that attractive but the food makes it worth a visit. Delicious vegetarian and vegan food, their falafel are nothing like the shop bought ones, their quiches and salads are scrumptious and... More
