We called in here for a sandwich and a baked potato for lunch. I enjoyed my egg mayo on brown with salad (very nice). My husband's baked potato skin took some forceful cutting through (too dried out), although the tuna topping was fine. Accompanied by...More

Attended last week. Having heard positive feedback from colleagues, I was keen to see what all the fuss was about. The chocolate and drinks were good but the welcome was not the warmest and the floor was disgusting and in desperate need of sweeping up,...More
