If you are looking for a little bit of decadence or maybe just somewhere new to go for a coffee with your Mum friends, a new M&S Simply Food (with cafe!) has opened at Chineham Shopping Centre. It’s open from 8am to 9pm Mon to Sat and 10am to 4pm on Sunday. The Cafe is open all of this time too and looks like it has a good selection of cakes and a few nutritious meals. We are thinking of going there for dinner one night as it’s quiet and not too expensive. An added bonus is that there’s lots of parking (3 car parks) which is free and has several parent parking spaces.
I had a nose at the prices and for some of the products they aren’t as expensive as you would think. They also have some lovely flowers, Mothers Day presents and Easter presents available.
In the Cafe, there are about 8 high chairs and they also have a lift and baby changing facilities which are sparkly new. The baby changing facilities are in the men’s and ladies (I made my husband check! lol) which I was impressed with. No sexism at M&S!
Let me know if you get around to checking it out and if you like it.
