Stepping into Lillians in the lovely Thorntons Arcade felt like popping round an Aunt’s for tea on the way home from school. This is a good thing – my Mum has nice Sisters…

First thing to point out is that my Aunt would usually offer me a seat, and there are none here in Lillians. 1-0 to family. Not that that particularly matters, Lillians serves its purpose as a lunch stop perfectly well as take-out only. I only mention it because despite the weaknesses compared to other locallunch locations, I am really struggling to give the delightful Lillians anything resembling a bad review. Rather like family, I feel pretty strongly that it should not have a bad word said about it, by me or anyone else. Hey, we all know our family aren’t perfect, but you love them, right? And at least no-one at Lillians ever made me dance at a family wedding.

My sandwich was exactly like one you’d get from a loved one, it was made with care (as you can see, remarkable cucumber symmetry) and was stacked full of enough of everything to help me grow big and strong. I even felt like I was getting it at family rates, together with a drink and some crisps I still had enough change from a fiver to go and try the lottery. Had I won, I’d feel rude not going back with gifts.

There aren’t many places like this around anymore so make the most of it. On top of that, Lillians really deserves to be given a go by anyone who would normally go to somewhere like Boots or Costa for a working lunch – heaven knows they try hard enough to make it enjoyable for you. If you want a filling, tasty sandwich, made the way you like it and for a price you could cope with every single day – you couldn’t even do it better yourself. And let’s be honest, you probably wouldn’t be quite as friendly.

  • Wonderfully friendly service
  • Simple, good quality sandwiches
  • Great value, particularly for the location
  • Perhaps a little too simple…
  • Ideally there would be a seating area
  • Spartan interior decor!

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    I have learned some new things by your site. One other thing I’d like to say is that newer computer system os’s tend to allow far more memory to use, but they in addition demand more memory simply to function. If someone’s computer can not handle much more memory along with the newest software requires that storage increase, it could be the time to buy a new Laptop. Thanks
