Not sure how they do it. Magic probably. The vegan menu is extensive and brilliant. I've come back for it twice now. Would recommend as a fantastic vegan alternative.

Best fish and chips I've had in a long time. Ordered 'The Shack basket' everything tasted fresh and cooked to perfection. Wish I'd found this place sooner!
