I popped in hoping for a tasty homemade soup to takeaway. I was charged £4.20. Whilst I was waiting I saw the waitress opening a can of Heinz soup! I couldn't believe it, asked for my money back which they were fine about and left.

Visited due to the strong reputation for lunch. Great deli and selection of world foods. Lunch was ok. Great range but slow service with not very cheerful staff. However this was probably due to a busy period. The food was good. A far better offering...More
