Nice, but unremarkable

This place is quite small, with an excellent vegan shop - some very good chocolate, egg replacer, lots of cream cheese, all different kinds of mock meat. We were told that all the food is vegan, but from reading this page I'm not sure if we were misinformed.
We had the vegan goose, because I've never seen that on a menu before, and BBQ duck. The goose was a bit tougher than other mock meats I've had, but it was really good, in a flavoursome sauce with dumplings. The BBQ duck also had good flavours, but there wasn't actually that much mock meat in it, which was disappointing. We also shared a plate of dumplings, which were nice but unremarkable.
The desserts are microwave mug cakes, which was an unusual twist. We shared the chocolate chip crumb cake, and it was really nice, cooked all the way through and topped with the creamiest chocolate ice cream.
Small downside: when we went to pay, we were asked to recite what we'd had, rather than them just checking our bill. This meant looking through the menu again and pointing out what we'd had.
