It's amazing that everything is vegetarian and it really is all priced decently. However the food is quite same-old now, having been going around 3-4 times in the past year for brunch with friends etc. Further the deco isn't amazing, it's quite dark and the furniture is all miss-matched. It's okay for lunch but it certainly isn't anything fancy or... More

After recently moving to Withington and often seeing fuel looking busy I finally decided to give it a shot. I went there on Sunday evening with my partner and to be fair, it was a pretty big disappointment. From the door to the bar everything felt that there has been zero thought on how to make this place comfortable. Furniture... More

Never had a bad meal, halloumi and chips are incredible. Cheap, nice beer! Lovely atmosphere, can not fault it.

Used to eat here regularly getting a vegetarian breakfast and always enjoyed it. However I began to notice quality slipping, breakfast taking a long time to come, food cold, smaller portions. I stopped going for around a year and decided this weekend to give it a go. However it seems the problems with the food are still the same my... More

Tried Fuel for the first time today, for lunch with my partner. I had the "fish finger" (breaded halloumi) sandwich with chips and my partner had halloumi and chips with mushy peas. 2 mains and 2 soft drinks came to £17ish in total, which for good vegetarian food isn't bad at all. We sat downstairs near the window and the... More

Everything seemed nice at the time, but for the past couple of days i've been glued to the loo, it was the only thing i ate that day so it's not looking good. They fuelled my toilet paper bill like mad. I also noticed they don't have their hygiene rating in the window which leaves me a little dubious.

Came here at the end of a long weekend trip for a final meal before setting out and so glad we found this place, just perfect - we all chose something different from what is an extensive and creative vegetarian menu and we all absolutely loved the food - thanks so much will be back next time I'm in town!
