cafe iun an alley

Visited the lunch box with a friend and was surprised at the good meal we had there as it is a tiny little place tucked away down a side alley. The place was crowded when we attended by lots of elderly having lunch which was extremely good value. Staff very attentive but not intrusive

This is place doesn't look much from the outside. It's small and its decor faded. The clientelle alwsys seem a little older. The food though is great. It's well cooked home style foods for pub prices. I've never had any food there that was a disappointment. The staff a are friendly and helpful. I use it now every time I... More

Plan, well cooked food, popular with older customers, so don't go if you want a trendy atmosphere. Do go if you want a pleasant meal at a good price in quaint (slightly tacky) surroundings.

Found this by accident whilst walking around Trowbridge and was pleased I did. Lovely, homely atmosphere and a very large selection of dishes considering its size. A very generous pot of tea for one and a very tasty ham sandwich with some trimmings filled a hole nicely and was reasonably priced. Well worth a visit and far better than some... More

This little restaurant is tucked away in a small alley, however it is well worth looking for. I have been here several times and never been disappointed the food is always fresh, prepared on the premises and service is cheerful. The place has a quaint feel about it and is frequented by people who understand the concept of value for... More

Firstly, I have no idea what SophieSpark is going on about, this place doesn't smell at all! U've been eating from there for the last 5 years and there are a lot of regular oldies at The Lunch Box because the staff are fantastic and the food is just like it's homecooked. All the ingredients are locally sourced (especially the... More

Found this friendly restaurant tucked away off the main street. My wife had egg on toast which turn out to be 2 eggs and 2 rounds of toast, but the eggs were a bit overcooked. I had a toasted teacake and a pot of tea for one. The teacake was excellent and the teapot was enough for 2 good sized... More

I like this place, it's good old fashioned, no nonsense food at reasonable price. We stopped for lunch today. I had a lovely egg mayo baguette which is served with a mini side salad and coleslaw. My husband had a bacon and mushroom stuffed pitta, with the same side salad. Perfect with a pot of tea on a blustery day!... More
