Booked a table for a family, birthday Lunch of 4, 1 Vegan ... Nice restaurant, friendly and attentive staff, others in the party ordered the 2 course meals, Nachos and chicken starters 2 chicken Aribiarta, 1 pate and 1 Caesar salad, I ordered the crispy...mushrooms, no Vegan dip option, asked for Vegan menu though none available, server did state the Vegan Lasagna was the option, went for that, started was Ok, poor portions and the side salad was almost non existent, also ordered a portion of chips which was 3.45 and again very poor portion, chips were cold, my family enjoyed their food though when I was served the Vegan Lasagna it looked disgusting... which it was, meant to have a vegan cheese sauce and topping, this clearly had been dug out of the back of the freezer and microwaved until it was burned a dollop of tomato sauce placed on top to ATTEMPT to try and make this appealing... It just wasnt, any person who calls themselves a chef and serves this really should look at other career options such as McDonalds or KFC, it really was disgusting one small fork bite of this, bland, probably been reheated at least twice and at its best this was mush, just mush.... couldn't actually tell you what any of the ingredients in this were, just inedible, was asked if the dish was ok, I cold clearly see the waited was embarrassed even before I stated, disgusting and inedible, he knew right away and an apologies several times for this... as I said my party (sons birthday lunch) did like their food but agreed not worth the cost, I can only say if you are vegan/Vegetarian then this is definitely somewhere to avoid, the very fact the EH!!! chef though that this was edible which he clearly knew wasn't states what to expect if you ask for a vegan option, it'll be just what I was served, something that has been in a freezer for god knows how long, and at best inedible mush ... truly the worse vegan meal I've ever ever been served...places like this dont have the ''chefs'''', with the ability to produce good tasty vegan foods, its mostly easy to prepare pasta dishes that is served with big tub factory made and bought in sauces etc, ah well....More

There are only a couple of main options available for a vegan diet. They are all tomato based pastas. I had the spaghetti Napolitana which was lovely. The service was great. There is no alternative milk option for coffees.

We took our granddaughter to celebrate her birthday the food was it's excellent best as we have come to expect. 5 adults and a 3 year old the attention of the staff was great and a fuss was made of Charlie who loved the attention....The only grip I have is I was driving and was drinking draught soda water a Coke size glass was £2.55! The bill was near £200 and worth it for food and service but I feel the price of the soda water was over the top for a designated driver!More
