My first time here and I was impressed with the building and the interior and exterior. Lots of places to sit outside, even undercover. It was quite busy and I was lucky enough to get the last parking spot. The menu was quite limited (due...More

Dropped in on a rainy Monday for an excellent lunch as always - sweet potato and chickpea curry. Wonderful spot, lovely staff and amazing veggie and vegan food. If I could I would eat here everyday.

Loved it! We had the meal and drink lunch offer for £15 (£7.50 with eat out to help out). I had the vegan chilli which was DELICIOUS and my husband had the chorizo tortilla which he said was tasty but only had one bit of...More

Was visiting Snowdonia for day and found this on the northern periphery towards Bangor. Found by chance and what a great find it was. There are a lot of places severing typical pub grub in the vicinity so this made a pleasant change. The menu...More
