Respond to Review of CLOSED: Beatroot Cafe
Review: Imagine if your school cafeteria had been run by trendy hippies. Then it would probably have been like Beatroot. After you've queued up, your food is slopped into cardboard containers and you eat with strange, wooden cutlery. I was half expecting a stern middle-aged man with a cane to give me "six of the best" if I didn't eat my greens. Luckily, there was no chance of that because the food was thoroughly enjoyable. And it's okay if the school bully has pinched some of your dinner money because Beatroot is really cheap. What's more, you can have your cardboard container filled with any combination of the tasty fare on offer. I had tonnes of rice, curry, shepherd's pie and veg. There's loads of salad too and plenty for vegans. I have a mighty appetite but I was full to the brim for just £6. This place is perfect for people in a hurry - if you're on a short break from work, for example - but it's not the right choice if you want a romantic meal for two. Two things you should be wary of; (1) there's no toilet; (2) I got a week's detention for giving someone a wedgie.
