There were about 8 home made cakes to choose from, the Victoria sponge was delicious. A friend eats here regularly and speaks very highly of the food and the guys who run it.

I visited yesterday and had soya milk. Oat milk was also available. I’ve been previously and had a chickpea curry which was vegan so they definitely cater for all.
