Had a sandwich from a staff lunch a few days back and it was BRILLIANT! I had the Bollywood and it was so flavorful and spicy. My first thought was I need to come back and take my husband.

Great food, good service. Always enjoy my visit. They just need more seating. I like the vibrancy, but sometimes its too crowded. Of course this is better than empty with tumbleweeds blowing through!!

My wife and I regularly visit CB’s - the Chiabatta is lovely - there are so many choices of fillings - I would strongly recommend it if you’re luck to get a seat

Visited on Saturday for the 1st time. Little bit cramped but overall a great visit. Lots of different options rather than standard sandwich fillings. Will definitely return!

The best sandwich I have had ...... ever! Busy at lunchtime, so you may have wait. Friendly and accommodating staff. If you want something a little more than Starbucks, Nero’s etc then this is the place to be!

I don't know but I'd be surprised if it wasn't. It'd be a good idea to ring them to check. Sorry for not replying sooner :)
