    Ours is good, I've had pizza, sandwiches and other bits from them and they are very good and tasty.

    They make the staff room a big cake every week which is also good.

    They look after us, I can give them a call and ask them to put me something to one side if I am busy and they will do for me then I can just pop down and get it when I get chance so they are very good and supportive of us.

    If you come on a Friday morning you get a slice of cake

    As for supplier lunch I don't know what our rules are I'd probably have a pile of forms to fill in or something.....

    From what I've seen here it's pretty standard, they do offer a lot of healthy stuff at least, even if the kids don't choose it

    There's always something left over and put in the staffroom, but I'll always pass on that thanks, leftover cold school dinner? I'd rather go hungry for the last few hours of the day!

    Ours is repetitive.

    Main meal is the boring stuff, one day it will be mince, then that will turn into curry, then into lasagna (not joking)

    Pasta everyday with a tomato covering and then tons of cheese
    jackets with beans
    sausage rolls
    pizza slices
    salad bar thats the same too

    We have gone all "Healthy" but then the options of chocolate muffins, millionair shortbread etc has appeared.

    The food here is pretty good, although I only ever have the baguettes which are baked off that morning, so are nice and fresh. They also have a brilliant Coronation chicken sandwhich filling, although apparently I'm the only one who ever buys it!

    The food here is quite heavily subsedised by the school, you only pay £1.75 for a starter, main course and desert or drink. I think that's pretty reasonable. We also have a large % of free school meals amongst our students. Staff get a lunch for free as long as they eat it in the canteen. I tend to buy my food at break time and pay for it, that way I can eat it in my office

    We don't have a canteen

    Dorset got rid of all canteens in everything other than high schools some years ago. Current legislation is pushing hot food back into schools but it hasnt got here yet.
    The junior school I work in has hot food delivered and sometimes there are leftovers - but they arent very nice
