Had a broth with chicken and vegetables for lunch. It tasted good and hearty and did fill up the empty stomach in a good way. Really enjoyed it. Wrap was good too.

Whoever made the chicken and vegetable broth on Tuesday 19.6.18 deserves a Michelin star! It was like a meal in itself with lots of veg and big pieces of chicken. Lovely.

The cafe has a fairly limited menu and is quite expensive. I ordered the honey roasted ham sandwich which was nice, but nothing special and a small portion. My partner had the jacket potato with tuna which she said was also quite nice.
