Excellent, busy (but quite noisy) atmosphere. Outstanding welcome and service. But our food was basically pub standard, so we came away disappointed.

I had a Vegetarian Boxty myself and it was absolutely delicious. Not sure about Vegan options but I would definitely call the restaurant and ask. They are very friendly and helpful.
