Response from Ginetta632 | Reviewed this property |
There is a great variety of options which would definitely suit vegetarians but I am not absolutely sure if they would be suitable for vegans
Hi Can anyone recommend how many dishes per person is about right? I know dish size and appetites vary but looking at pictures i was thinking about 3 each might be enough? Thanks

We usually visit in a group of 5/6 and find a shared starter plus 2 dishes each to be ample. It's best to pitch it low and add more later if you need to.
