When we arrived we found The Retreat equally inviting inside, with low lighting, candles and a relaxed calm feel and we were shown to a lovely big table for two.
I chose the aubergine stack ,with houmous replacing the goats cheese and it was a tasty start to the meal, as I love all the components of the dish, so it was a winner.
My only niggle is with the wine list, with no vegan wines labelled, although you would presume that all the wines would be vegetarian, but this was not clear either. However I kicked off with a bottle of Corona and continued with wine I knew was vegan, but maybe this is something The Retreat will look at in the future.
We had a friendly front of house team looking after us, Carole and Steve, who did a great job and were helpful but professional.
I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Retreat and will definitely revisit in the future.
