Price:
Pizzas £6.60+

Our comments: The pizza bases are suitable for vegans; made daily by themselves, without milk. The vegetarian and vegetarian hot pizza are therefore suitable, without cheese. Unfortunately the fries and wedges are not suitable; they are fried in the same oil as animal products. The garlic bread is not vegan either.

They have been helpful to guests that have stayed here, who informed them they were vegan in advance. They prepared a vegan menu for the evening meal but it did include Quorn sausages as one of the options and at breakfast they provided lactose free rather than vegan yogurts. So if you are eating here, you just need to double check everything you are given.
