Our meat pies were so dry they were almost inedible. We had heard so much about Antons on the web but in our experience was not at all good.

We popped in for lunch and had Rohack (minced raw meat on a bread roll, with spices)....so fresh, delicious and so different to anything I had eaten before. Their pastries too were fresh and beautifully displayed. Helpful service and advice, no hurry and very pleasant.
