Not the best pizza by any stretch, but perfectly acceptable and spectacular value. A fiver for a weekday large pizza is something you can’t argue with.
Not only are the team here doing fascinating and important research… they’re great at engaging and supporting the kids they use as the subjects of their experiments, too! They ‘borrowed’ one of ours for research on language development and the experiments seemed as stimulating and interesting to the little tot as they were useful to the understanding of the human brain, we were kept informed about everything all the way along, and our kid even got to choose a toy at the end of it (which, three years on, she still has and loves).
If you’re willing to volunteer your baby’s time for the betterment of science but were concerned about the environment in which you’d be doing so, let this review dispel that.
2 cash machines. Not much queuing space (occupied by trolley park) but at least it’s under cover. “Pick up/drop off” spaces adjacent useful, if free, but often occupied during store opening hours so you’re likely to need to use the main car park if you’re flying-by. Been targetted by card skimmers at least once (a friend had his card cloned by one that was later traced to here); not good CCTV coverage.
Newly-reopened after an extended temporary relocation, this library now features revamped features including a community MakerSpace available for tech/inventive projects, Code Club, and more.
Pleasant park with a better-than-average selection of play equipment suitable for children of all ages and a large field for games/sports.
Okay food and a pleasant bar. A perfectly reasonable place to take lunch, assuming you’re University staff.
Economical alternative to Boots, across the road, stocking a broad range of toiletries, cosmetics, and over-the-counter medicines.
Fantastic freshly-baked cookies. Orange and chocolate is a firm favourite for me, but oatmeal and raisin is a strong contender too.
Amazing handmade gelato and sorbet in all your favourite flavours… and some you’ve probably never heard of.
Enormous garden centre and associated shops, including a very good farm shop and an excellent cafe.
Clean, well-kept motorway services with all the usual amenities. Parking sometimes a little busy.
