A great place to eat...

All our food is made on site, fresh, daily by our in-house team. We buy produce from local suppliers and prepare it in our kitchens every day.
So, when you buy lunch at Stray's, you're eating freshly prepared food; supporting local businesses, who pay UK taxes and feeding the local families who in turn are feeding you!
