Visited here for lunch after a morning spent at the salt mines. Great value for money. Food is self-service (cafeteria style) - decide how many portions you want to pay for and make your selections. Pay at the till and then find a seat to enjoy simple, hearty, vegetarian fare. Amongst my family and myself, we particularly enjoyed the lentil... More

Cheap and healthy food. English-friendly staff and interesting place to have a quick lunch at salad bar and if you are up to more fancy dinner, there is a restaurant down the stairs.

We found this place by accident. Popped in for a coffee in the afternoon to the cafe upstairs. This was really busy and the food looked great. We had a look at the restaurant downstairs and it was a stunning cellar/dungeon setting. The menu looked great and prices good so went back later. So glad we did as the meal... More

I visited the restaurant downstairs, not the buffet upstairs. The first impression of the place was wow.... I ordered the hunters stew with venison and pork roulade. However I got the pork tenderloin with stewed apple and berries instead. The hunter stew was fine and was with quite nice with the assorted bread. The tenderloin I got had one moist... More

Excellent - though 'self-service' eatery. Some gluten free options. Thoroughly recommended. Food quality, ambiance, cleanliness all 100% - plus friendly staff. Choka-block when we visited early evening and midweek, but that just added to the fantastic atmosphere and the speed of service was still spot-on. Main thing is the Value! - incredible. We calculated £11 for 2 x 2 courses,... More

I often go to eat here-it runs like a canteen and is much used by students etc... I use it as a "fuelling station" after work, because there is always plenty of choice, everything is fresh and the food adjusts to the seasons, so you feel that you are not using "Airmiles" to import exotica, when good local produce is...
