Judges comments - July/August 2017

'The staff are very welcoming indeed. There are signs up saying everything is GF and DF, and on the way in you walk past the food cabinets where everything has clear allergen labelling.

There's a good choice of normal cafe food - breakfasts, snacks, and hot lunch dishes, plus loads of cakes. It's all GF/DF and all the food on display is clearly allergen-labelled. They do offer a range of egg free cakes, for instance and are very allergen aware.

'All the food was GF and DF so no risk of cross contamination. I was offered a choice of egg free cakes after having asked about eggs in something else. The waitress told us what the dishes were before putting them on the table. Everything is GF/DF but I did feel confident that any other special requirements would be treated appropriately and they were very happy to answer questions about ingredients'

'My plate of mezze with GF garlic bread was fab. As a coeliac I haven't had this whilst eating out for years as it always comes with bread. The cakes were superb. GF Victoria sponge outstanding. A huge range of cakes and biscuits, most without refined sugar. Great big bowls of delicious-looking salads. All the food looked good. Excellent coffee.'

'Great value and I would love to go again - really a delightful place to visit.'
