Lovely food. Good choices for vegans. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Most of the booze was vegan too. Will definitely return.

Went with my wife for a birthday meal and was warmly welcomed by a waitress who did a wonderful job all night with her quirky enthusiastic manner. Shared two starters, a main and a mixed salad (which was a really good size), and finished with...More
