Great place with lots of vegan options!

Lovely pub with many good vegan options, the staff was super lovely too! Some things I remeber from the menu were lots of different burger options, 4 different vegan pizzas, many vegan sides and lots of choice of vegan gyros which is what we ordered and it definitely didn’t disappoint! They also had really tasty vegan sauces, bbq and mayo

Pretty impressive bar in the heart of Cardiff

Walked past and thought I'd randomly give the place a go, I was impressed with the range of vegan beers and that they where very clearly marked. Friendly staff with a great atmosphere. I figured I try the sunday roast. Though i wasn't particularly hungry at the time I was curious. That was a mistake I was expecting the usual high price with small portions that you often get in city centre venues! As it turned out the portions where generious enough that I had difficulty finishing. And the taste was spot on. The only thing that could be improved if i search for things to nit pick over was that the veg could of done with having a bit more of a bite to it. (Ie. A little to soft for my taste) though it seems to be at the normal preference.so i can't really complain and the roasts could of been slightly crisper.

Lots of vegan options

There must be about 6 different vegan burgers, plus vegan pizzas and tons of sides as well (the green been fries are incredible). The burgers are nice, though not the best I've ever had. However definitely worth getting as still nicer than you might get in a lot of places and creative with flavours to go with them. Plus lots of nice drinks, ciders etc that are vegan friendly too and a nice atmosphere.

Pros: Lots of options for vegans, Vegan alcohol available, Good value for money

This pub has a massive vegan menu (around half the menu is vegan/veggie). Food is really good and at a reasonable price.

Pros: Lots of delicious vegan options , Great atmosphere, Lovely pub

Cons: Drinks are a little on the pricey side for Cardiff

Impressive turn around

Brand new menu brings a welcome change with tons of new v/vg options! Staff are helpful, enthusiastic and best of all knowledgable about the vegan food and beers that they have!

Vegan cheese, jackfruit, mock duck, hot dogs, 3 different burger patties, the list goes on!

Its rad to see big changes in places like this, especially when they do it so well, so well done HoS!
