Usually packed, it’s where vegetarians with palates go for a splashy date night. The menu is ever-changing but always assembled with more care than the usual bean and tofu: Sri Lankan sweet potato and cashew nut curry, chickpea and aubergine (eggplant) tagine, and mixed mushroom and ale pie are three samples from its internationally derived menu. Big bowls and plates, appetizing presentation, and a vibe like a contemporary home have secured Mildreds a following even among carnivores. Save room for the peanut butter chocolate brownie—you won’t believe it’s gluten free.
