Terrible experience. Not sure why they try to serve vegan food...

AVOID!!!!!!!! Went here on the basis of seeing them recommended on other websites for vegan food, but left absolutely disappointed, appalled by the management and feeling truly robbed. They had very little options, the starter chosen was out of stock. I ordered the cauliflower steak, which was described as a seasoned steak with garlic mushrooms and confit tomato with triple cooked chips and peppercorn sauce. I was then served around 4-5 very small florets of cauliflower (barely any to no seasoning and not cut in a steak) with 3 small mushrooms (that weren't garlic at all...) With half a fried tomato that was nearly cold. The chips were like bricks, it was genuinely strenuous to cut one in half??? It also didn't come with peppercorn sauce as described, and when asking a waitress they told me it's because they don't have plant based peppercorn sauce?!?!? Why is it on the menu then?!?!? They did however send out a small pot of "plant based" sauce, which literally tasted like stock? I ate around 10% of the plate then advised the waitress (which I'll add, all the waitresses and the supervisor I dealt with were so lovely and understanding, sadly I can't say the same for the management who wouldn't give us the time to speak to us, instead sending their young supervisor with their outrageous excuse for compensation) that It wasn't satisfactory, whilst apologising for complaining myself...

This dish cost a whopping £19.95!!!! After not taking it off the bill we asked the supervisor to speak to the management, who came back HERSELF (Clearly management couldn't be arsed) to explain she was sorry, there was nothing more she could do and management would only take 20% off that dish. We were very polite, and this restaurant absolutely ripped us off. My partner eats meat and ordered a chicken dish, which was dry and hard and yet again barely seasoned. Also to add... We got ciabatta for starters, which was on the plant based menu and stated with cheese. They then said they can't do vegan cheese, which then they backtracked on. It seems the kitchen don't know what they're doing.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN FOOD (or even meat apparently) LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

Update: management called my partner and apologised, which I appreciate, but invited us back in to try their food again... At our expense? I'm sorry, but why would I want to come back and pay full price when it was shocking the first time? Avoid.

Pros: Friendly waitresses, Supervisor was apologetic and understanding

Cons: Poor management response, Overpriced, Clearly kitchen aren't prepared

Separate vegan menu with exciting options

Lovely restaurant (#1 in Chorley according to TripAdvisor) with a great vegan menu. I had Korean style cauliflower to start and a tomato risotto with garlic flatbread for main. Chocolate brownie with vegan ice cream for dessert. All delicious and imaginative and very filling! Quite pricey but good for a special occasion with omni friends. :)

Extensive plant based menu

We stopped for lunch and had a great meal, really large menu. The gelato was amazing (we had passion fruit And rhubarb)! Staff were great. We left most definitely full up! We would definitely go back.
