Had a tasty traditional Cornish pastie from here! Really friendly staff very clean and modern. Fast service even though the queue was near the door.

Fabulous. If you're after a quick snack, whether on the go or dining in this place is great. A wide selection and piping hot... I'd highly recommend this place.
