FoodWe didn't stop long. A half hour wait amidst the smokey atmosphere and noise from the television screens for what looked like little more than 'transport café' food prompted a hasty exit . One cappuccino sufficed at £1.25.
ServiceStaff were efficient and at least we were warned of the wait.
VerdictTransport 'caff' with A levels. TV screens and young smokers made it feel like a betting shop. All that was missing was the small, blue biros and The Sporting Life. Food little more than fast food in 'posher' environment.
