The good earth is an absolute delete - the food is fresh, varied and delicious. The counter service means everything is fresh and you get a real sense of the care going into each dish. The vegetable lasagne was the best I’ve ever had! The...More

We had a tasty cheep lunch, £16 for the two of us. The quiche and a veggie bake with cheese and potato topping were both tasty and the salad with the quiche interesting.
