I've been into Greensmiths
twice now and must say it's really excellent. They are still in the process of opening (the basement level is still being finished and I believe it's going to house a cheesemonger and bigger wine outlet for Waterloo Wines) but from what I've seen so far I think it is exactly what the area needs. The staff are very helpful especially the fruit and veg lady who will take orders for produce if they haven't got it in stock that day. Mr Mac urgently need bok choi and shitake mushrooms and they ordered them for the following day! I can't imagine Sainsbury's doing that. They seem to have different fruit/veg every day so it's a great selection and it's really nicely presented. The bread is also excellent; a range of different types of unusual breads, all organic. We bought the sourdough rye today and a selection of different cakes for Mr Mac's dad's birthday.
I really hope this shop succeeds as not only is it good quality it is reclaiming the highstreet from the likes of Tesco/Sainsbury's and providing consumer with a bit more choice.
Needless to say, no connection just a very happy customer...
