I ordered soup and salad from borderline too cool for school bar attendant (i think i got the snootiest one ,the others seemed a bit friendlier) but was efficient and helpful when i asked if there was any dairy in the parsnip soup, there was so i got the minestrone. Soup arrived, good although the accompanying bread was pre-buttered (a lot of places do this now) but immediately replaced in a charming manner by the friendly waitress. Salad looked promising, nice olives, sliced tomato, rather a lot of very bitter rocket with no dressing but i put it in the soup and it was better that way. Was detecting a sour, vegetation decomposing aroma and digging deeper identified the culprit - a long thin strip of courgette which was distinctly past it's best tasting pretty nasty although still looking ok, so that put a stop to the salad eating. Next time the waitress passed i mentioned it to her and again she was lovely, said sorry but that was it, i was a little surprised but guided by my lunch companion i didn't take it any further; as he said it's only leaf it's not a proper restaurant you should expect that sort of thing, but whilst i see his point i don't totally agree. Anyways it's a good space, enjoyable busy atmosphere but i won't eat there again as i now have doubts about the kitchen.
