Quirky, cracking wee place for a drink. They have a good choice of unusual ciders and during our visit the sun was shining and provided a great afternoon on board watching the boats go by

Under The Stars does offer vegan options. Many f the staff are vegetarian or vegan. My son booked the table for our meal so I am not sure if he rang them or booked via their website, sorry.
