“Wonderful range of sandwiches and friendly service”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

I have eaten lunch from this place for years and have never been disappointed. It serves a very good range of sandwiches - choose your bread and your filling from the wide choice available, with or without spreads or mayonnaise. Jacket potatoes, soup, pastries, coffee etc are all available. The Picnic Basket is a very friendly take away café with a few seats inside. Overall it is a great place to collect breakfast or lunch. It serves from early morning until after the lunch queues have departed.

“Great little place”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

excellent sandwiches, great value, very friendly! I have filled my loyalty card up several times. Very large selection of toppings, but warning- go early as they run out of things!
