Tea on the Green
In a great location with great views overlooking the cathedral, Tea on the Green is the perfect setting for a satisfying breakfast or lunch break. With a huge variety of food and drinks to choose from including teas, coffees and alcoholic drinks this is the perfect place to share a meal with both family and friends.

Dinner

Herbies
The wonderfully diverse menu of Herbies featuring flavours from all around the world, is guaranteed to delight both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

Not only will Herbies will have you hooked on vegetarian cooking, but the laid-back, friendly feel of the restaurant will make this one of your favourite place to frequent. 

Jasmine Thai Restaurant
Pretty much no cuisine if off-limits to vegetarians, and that includes Thai food! The Jasmine Thai Restaurant serves a variety of food, including a selection of mouth-watering vegetarian dishes. This restaurant would make for the perfect dinner date or celebratory meal out.  

Lloyd’s Kitchen
This independently owned restaurant brings something new to the food scene. Stylish, relaxed and serving fresh food prepared to order, Lloyd’s Kitchen’s menu includes a unique range of different vegetarian options as well as sandwiches and light bites. Their evening options are slightly less accommodating to vegetarians, so perhaps bear that in mind if you’re looking to make an evening reservation.
