On entering the cafe, the serving area is at the back of an echoing space. Not a problem, but there is not a lot of "flow" to the organisation of getting served. The choice of rolls (wrapped in a cellophane and paper bag) was fairly limited, with no options for a fresh one to be made to order. They are kept in a fridge (yes, I do understand the requirments of the Environmental Health Officer) at a temperature too low for enjoyment, the roast beef and onion one I had was in fairly stale, dry bread and the beef looked as if it had come from the local supermarket - I can't comment on the taste as (as I said) it was too cold. There was a selection of paninis available, but I didn't see the cost, nor how they were to be served. My husband chose a ham & gruyere panini and it came dressed with coleslaw and some chopped salad; he said it was ok. The total cost for middle-rate food and a couple of high-end ginger beers was £14.30, which made the panini £4.85 - as I said, the price wasn't evident before you are at the till - in fact I had to work it out from knowing the price of the drinks and my beef roll.
All in all I was disappointed, the cafe is local to me and I don't feel inclined to make a re-visit - which is a shame. Having said all this, I have no complaints about the staff, just that the food and the amibence are bettered by miles in other establishments in the locality.
