Owner Jessica Jones, 29, said: "It has gone really well. On our opening day there were people waiting outside the door for us to open and then by 5.30pm there were queues.

"In fact we ran out of prepped food so had to make more. Everyone has been talking about it especially on social media where people love to get into 'arguments' about eating meat and fish and what is vegan."
