The chef has lots of experience cooking vegan food and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about veganism. The menu is subject to change but at the time of research included main dishes of mac and cheese, spicy seitan burger and ‘tofu-phish’ (pictured), all coming with fries and onion rings, with the option of adding seitan ‘bakun’ with a charge. Examples of snacks available would be popcorn tofu and a vegan ‘Scotch egg’.
