They serve vegan Sunday dinners consisting of nut roast, a choice of vegetables from the main serving trolley and an individual portion of vegan gravy. There is butter in some of the vegetables but there is plenty of choice and all of the staff are very clued up as to what is suitable.
Let them know if you require your chips to be vegan; they aim to do their best but due to space restrictions they might not be able to guarantee separate fryers during busy times. Dairy free milk is available for teas and coffees. The restaurant has a dog-friendly section. The owner is very knowledgeable, attentive and receptive to feedback, without being intrusive.
