Good meals are delivered - fresh or frozen. Soup, meals, cold cuts of meat, dessertas can be purchased in the store. Some seniors or others unable to cook for themselves have weekly meals delivered for free. I highly recommend.

A good alternative for home style takeout meals, with menus that vary by day and by week also featuring a variety of British packaged food items.

Had lunch here recently. Sandwiches made to order, plus lots of hot selections. Small eat-in area, or food to go. Friendly staff.

For those of those looking for a good dinner meal ready to go and frozen look elsewhere. The BBQ meat loaf leaves a lot to be desired from a quality and quantity perspective for two. We look forward to a tandoori chicken in the freezer for an improved culinary delight. We will let you know!

This shop offers a variety of pre-cooked meals, and the menu changes every week. I placed orders for a housebound family member for a couple of months, and was always so impressed with the service. The women working there knew their customers and always chatted while filling orders. The menu items are varied, and fairly creative while remaining familiar. They... More
