First time I’ve ever been eager to leave feedback. We had a great evening, we were a group of three and we ordered one of everything on the menu and two of several, the dishes kept coming. The quality, flavour and deliciousness of every dish was exceptional, genuinely couldn’t fault anything. Thanks for a great night. Will definitely be back.

Loved the unusual combinations and having a good choice of veggie options. Music added to the cool urban feel. Thank you

We had a wonderful evening, with marvellous food, great drinks, and friendly staff. Everyone enjoyed the evening and no-one missed meat (although we did have some wonderful fish).

Wonderful food and great idea to serve as sharing plates. Highly original dishes that turn up looking nothing like you imagined they would. Hard to pick a favourite dish here when they are all so delicious. I’m coming back but don’t tell too many because it’s lovely as it is

Yesterday, my friends and I visited Root for the third time. We have always really enjoyed the food, but I prefer the table layout now, it definitely feels cosier and more atmospheric to me. Staff were attentive (but not overly so) and friendly, food amazing as always. Good range of both vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Delicious!! The dishes are off-the-scale tasty. I love the vibe, the music (cool tunes but not too loud), the way they bring the plates out as they’re ready. Service friendly & excellent. Haven’t been for 18 months & love the new layout & banquette seating. Have already recommended to my sister today, and will to others. Just a fab, cool quirky place with food to die for. Thanks for a great start to the evening!

Fab to have such innovative vegetarian food. A little over salted my only 'complaint'

We had a lovely meal at Root. I never knew vegetables could taste so good! The wine was also very nice. We thought the pumpkin risotto was a little salty but apart from that it was wonderful.
