A bar on a boat with outdoor seating and amazing cocktails. Yummy!! We went for a couple of drinks on a Thursday afternoon and found the seating area full because the sun was out. Haven't tried the food here but I recommend the cocktails!

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.
