We have come here a fair few times as we have never been disappointed. Recommend making your own flat bread or salad as lots of ingredients to chose from.

Called in for a lunch, received a nice welcome, service was excellent, interesting healthy menu. Unfortunately this was where the credits finish ! The food we received was overcooked and tasteless, although the apple and ginger juice was lovely. They did say that they were having a 'bad day' so perhaps we were unlucky ....

I come here at least once a week to grab lunch on my lunch hour. It is always my treat for the week! The staff are very helpful and are more than willing to amend recipes and add in some extra bits to suit everyone's needs. Decent priced and freshly prepared!! Love it :)

Made to order salads, wraps etc. Food always fresh and tasty, great veggie options and satisfies my other half's bacon cravings too. Quirky interior, good tea choice. We love this place for a 30 minute break whilst shopping on a busy weekend.

I visited here when a friend came for lunch by herself, she had a huge burrito and after trying some I knew I had to come back myself! A few days later, on a super busy Saturday I revisited and ordered a fresh fruit smoothie and wrap. All made to order and tasted delicious! There were plenty of seats to... More

This place is pretty popular with the locals to grab a bite for lunch. They do nice salads, wraps and sandwiches and also offer specials as well. I've been here several times and always enjoyed what I've had. There are some good people watching spots upstairs :)

Canteen is amazing a great menu of healthy food that even teenagers and kids like! All freshly made, staff really friendly -gets busy as so good and stairs are tricky but there is a small seating area downstairs. The food is simply delicious. They could do with more than one loo!

This has great reviews, so I was so surprised on trying Canteen to get a vegetable curry that smelled of cooking cabbage did not look good on the plate and tasted mediocre. Very disappointed.
