A real gem for vegetarians in the Lancaster area, with a huge amount of variety including daily specials. The hippie atmosphere in this place is brilliant, though the service can be slightly lacking. I have been several times and think even though the food is a little expensive it is well worth it.

Had lunch here today. We had our dog with us and so had to sit in their hidden garden. It has high walls so no problem with the wind and such a lovely place to sit. The food is all veggie and all made fresh on the premises.
I chose a simple jacket potato with black wax, very strong cheddar and my partner cheddar and cashew nut rissoles. Both came with a tasty fresh Whale Tail salad. They cater for veggie, vegan and gluten free diets. Oh and of course for anybody who enjoys fresh tasty food. Don't be put off by the veggie aspect if you are a meat eater. Provided you are a bit adventurous then you will not be disappointed.

We were invited into the Whale Tail by their daily food A board that was on the main road. After 15 minutes of sitting and choosing our food we got up to order. We were abruptly told that they stopped serving food at 4. It was 4.05. I questioned why they didn't tell us this when we (3 of us) walked in. She said she didn't see us?! There was only one other couple in the cafe! We won't be visiting again due to the rude staff. P.s take the board down if your closing!

I was excited to visit this restaurant as a vegetarian. It only serves vegetarian and vegan food. However, it wasn't really all that tasty and I felt I could have made it at home. Secondly, the waiting staff were a bit pushy and insisted that we didn't need a salad as big as the one we wanted to order (though it cost more!) Lovely interior but doesn't open in evenings which is a shame.
