A menu of healthy food designed by a nutritional therapist and a diverse non-alcoholic cocktail list.
The definition of redemption is ‘the action of being saved from sin, error or evil’. But don’t let that put you off visiting this oh-so-healthy eatery. Redemption’s not on any sort of preachy mission. Despite the lack of booze, and the abundance of vegan and wheat- or dairy-free options, a meal here is not a hair-shirt experience.
The restaurant – which follows three successful pop-ups – has non-alcoholic beer and a small range of mocktails served in vintage-style glasses. The Apple ‘Mock-jito’ was refreshingly minty, and the ‘Lettuce Spray’ a full-bodied blend of iceberg, lime, wasabi and aloe vera.
But it’s the food that really stands out. The grilled aubergine slices with tahini were chewy – almost caramelised. If we hadn’t polished off every morsel of our beetroot-and-barley risotto, and raw courgette spaghetti with walnut-and-sesame pesto, we might have left room for pudding.
Sadly, we lacked the willpower. At an adjacent table our neighbours opted for a cashew, coconut and strawberry ‘cheesecake’. We eyed it covetously, plotting a return visit.

We went for the Gastrolab tasting and it was fantastic!!! We were greeted with a welcome drink which was so refreshing followed by some snacks (I.e. Kale chips, olives, etc.). It was exactly what we needed. The rest of the tasting came out perfectly. I must say, all courses were delicious and I'm not a vegan myself. My boyfriend is vegan and he was quite pleased! Compliments to the chef and team at Redemption. Definitely one of our favourite coming from a foodie couple. Will make our way back!
