Homemade mushroom soup & sandwich combo £6. Tomato & pepper soup & sandwich combo. Both soups delicious. Kids shared a kids meal of chicken gougons, beans & chips. Latte, tea & 2 fantastic cost over £21. Service fast. Not too many smiles from staff as they seemed under pressure. 4* because of the lovely soups, otherwise 3*.
