Day time is a restaurant - amazing veggie/vegan fast food! Great milkshake! Children are allowed too. Does obviously have the dingy sticky floor, but who cares! Staff weren’t all that attentive but oh well. Wouldn’t put me off going regularly!

Stopped by for lunch. Great veggie and vegan food for lunch and really reasonably priced. Tasty. It's a little dark down there and felt a little sticky but i suppose as it's usually a gig venue that is to be expected.

As you would expect. Underground and dimly lit. However I had a jackfruit burger and vegan banana shake. Very reasonable prices and well cooked and very tasty. Good service and atmosphere. Most enjoyable
