My sandwich was very, very tasty. I’d happily have eaten another, and as many more as they had back there. For me, it tasted precisely as a good deli sandwich should – exactly like you want and expect it to, only different. It hits the mark in terms of all the good things I want [...]

When I first moved to Leeds I missed home dearly. It wasn’t so much my Mum doing my washing and ironing. I could cope without seeing my old friends every day, and I wasn’t bothered in the slightest about missing my little village. Not my village, no. But what was in it, and the few golden miles around it I missed enormously.
