the whole experience was a pleasure food service and atmosphere. Excellent in every way. It is a hidden gem but very busy whenever we visit.

Just off a side street, well worth the hunt, apparently has been a vegetarian/vegan restaurant for 53 years, daughter now in charge of the kitchen. Serves up a great selection of hot and cold dishes, so pleased I have found it, will become a regular visitor, even if its just for coffee and cake. Lots of memorabilia on the walls... More

We hadn't visited the restaurant for a year or so... I have to say it is still as quirky, welcoming and thoroughly pleasant as I remember it. The staff are cheerful and helpful and the food is fantastic. I am not a vegetarian but I do enjoy the food! Well done... another satisfied customer.

Excellent food, all freshly prepared, friendly and helpful staff, gentle atmosphere. There are plenty of choices, including vegan options. I suspect there may be fewer options later in the afternoon. Very reasonably priced.

Went there for a late lunch. Plenty of options for a vegan. Food was lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back again.

I've been coming her since I was a child and love the rissoles...very good clean food. Nice cosy environment, maybe a little on the expensive side.

I used to go to the Good Earth years ago and upon returning have found it just as wonderful as it always was. The food so fresh and nutritious.

As a vegan, I have tended to steered clear of The Good Earth because many of their dishes feature cheese and there is usually a strong smell of cheese in the restaurant. I also don't like to eat from buffets that are uncovered and in range of coughs and sneezes! Having visited rather reluctantly in Nov 2016, I will definitely... More

What a wonderful restaurant, good food, amazing staff. I went today with my two colleagues who are not vegetarians. And we had the most amazing food. I am a vegetarian and its nice to go to a restaurant and have a great choice of foods to choose from, rather than just the one choice of pasta. We will be going... More
