Soup Dragon

This little place offers a stylish way to have a hot meal on a budget: a daily choice of soups and stews is available in three different sizes, with a medium portion and a selection of delicious home-made breads and a piece of fruit.

Some change daily, while others stay on the menu for a week or a season. Typically there may be dahl (Indian lentil), potato & leek or carrot & coriander soup; or try something more substantial like beef chilli or a very fine Thai chicken curry from the blackboard menu. In line with their healthy philosophy, breakfasts offer a range of freshly squeezed drinks (Red Dragon: strawberry, raspberry and cranberry or home-made lemon & lime lemonade) and smoothies, all made to order so they taste fresh and vibrant.

Desserts include old favourites like rice pudding (served with cream). Food to go is also available, and a nice touch - they send customers on their way with a complimentary piece of fruit.
