Opening times: 08.30-14.15 Monday-Friday

Freshly cooked dished from our chefs, everything from a hearty traditional breakfast, healthy fruit bar, home-baked pizzas and freshly cooked pasta prepared daily with hot special dishes – often themed (fish and chip Friday is always a winner!)

There’s always a delicious vegetarian/Vegan option as well, along with one meal always priced at £3.90.

This is where you can also find our freshly prepared salad bar.
