About
Food at St Michael’s is about simplicity and enjoyment: delicious, unpretentious classic dishes made personally, on the premises, by chef and owner Matt. With over 30 years’ culinary experience, Matt’s standards are exacting. The daily menu is always seasonal so we’re big on fresh, top-quality ingredients. We buy produce from trusted local suppliers. We bake our breads daily.

They had vegetarian options when we visited but I'm not sure about vegan. They were very helpful though so may be able to accommodate. I'd give them a ring.
