Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

This small unobtrusive café has a niche of its own – the cold sandwiches and hot breakfasts are quick, filling takeaways, but the star attractions are the roasted hot meals and sliders. The pulled pork and brisket beef are slow-cooked and warming, with the piri-piri chicken and steak cooked to order, plus other daily specials featuring. The highlight is the tender roast cheesesteak, Philadelphia-style, served in a crisp ciabatta, but if you can't decide between the hot dishes then a sampler of three choices, coming in little brioche buns, is more than a satisfying compromise. It’s not perhaps the first choice of place to visit for vegetarians, but there is a tasty goat’s cheese, tomato, chilli chutney and roast peppers variant, too. As you’d imagine, trade is busiest at weekday lunchtimes and for weekend brunches, where the dozen or so seats soon fill up.
