I think it's fair to say that there are dozens of places around University where you can order your lunch but this is by the far the best place you can go.
The service here is always friendly and warm, always service with a smile.
Their selection of sandwiches is just mindblowing - with ingredients including Stilton, beetroot, chili jam, manchego, proscuitto, chorizo, salami, smoked mackerel - Pickards are serious about good food and brilliant combinations of flavour. There are sold at very good prices considering the high quality ingredients and the fact that the sandwiches are all made on premises - you can see them baking the bread at the back of the tea room.
To wash these sandwiches down are a fantastic array of teas - various types of White, Green, Black, Oolong, Mint and Fruit teas which are displayed on a huge chalk board. My favourite is Arctic Fire, I think it's definitely a good starting point to get you hooked on the tea here.
They also play some really good music here, it's a nice play to come for lunch, breakfast or a catch up with friends.
Quite understandably, this place gets flooded with students during peak lunch times so I recommend you trying to ahead of this rush or arriving slightly after (if you don't mind not necessarily being able to snag the best sandwiches).
The brownies, muffins and cakes are also just as great as the sandwiches - I had the lime cake the other day which was very impressive.
Highly recommend this place to anyone in the area.
