DELI and Dine promises to be Retford’s latest ‘real food experience’, offering customers a high quality café, delicatessen and wine shop – all under one roof.
It’s a bold departure from the usual coffee shops and restaurants on offer and being an unashamed foodie, one I couldn’t wait to try out. We arrived at lunchtime and the place was packed with diners and shoppers – always a good sign. A friendly waitress gave us a warm welcome and said our table would be ready shortly, leaving us to take in Deli and Dine’s surroundings. From the modern lighting, comfy seating and blackboards boasting treats galore – every attention has clearly been paid to detail to create that special atmosphere.
We soon sat down and began to explore the menu. From the main range of soups, sandwiches and salads to deli platters, tasters and tapas, there is certainly plenty to choose from. And if you’re someone like me who struggles to make a decision when eating out, the dazzling array of specials boards offering even more soups, bruschetta, salads and main meals could leave you feeling unsure of where to begin. One particularly pleasing feature was the Healthy Options menu all worked out to Weight Watchers points.
