I love the matchbox - Edit

I love eating at the matchbox even though they do not always have many vegan mains. It's always a bit hit and miss whether the mains are vegan but I recon about half the time, you may come in trumps. There is always good salad or chips and beans to fall back on. The staff are always friendly and will be happy to talk to you about the ingredients of their dishes which change on a daily basis.
The Mathbox helps people with special needs find work and you will always find everybody in good spirits. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is always buzzing with the workers from the building.
There are plenty of tables with water in the middle and all the guys who work there will clear your table before you've finished chewing your last mouthful. A lovely trait!
I'm lucky to know one of the companies who work in the building, so I'm more than happy to eat there for lunch.

Pros: friendly, fast, daily varieties

Cons: only open for a short period, wish they was at least veggie

Arts & veggies - a high energy place - - Edit

Not 100% veggie.

Full of energy - the atmosphere was "busy & buzzy" at lunchtime.

Smiley, happy team of workers.

Based in an arts centre.

Serving mainly vegetarian food.

Very limited for vegans but one choice at least.

Veggy specials changing daily, OK salad bar, cakes etc.

An army of "regulars" have their own favorite seats.

Structured as a cooperative - owned and run by adults with learning disabilities - run as a social business enterprise.

Well worth a visit.
