Our readers nominated the top 15 takeaways in Cam and Dursley, Thornbury, Yate and Chipping Sodbury, and we’ve been profiling each of them so you can choose the Gazette Series Best Takeaway 2021 winner.

This week we’re showcasing venues in Yate and Chipping Sodbury starting with the Food Hub based in Dean Court in Yate.

Owner Lisanne Rogers has over 30 years catering experience having previously owned coffee shops and tea rooms in surrounding Wickwar and Berkeley.

Lisanne and her team at The Food Hub predominantly aim at catering for corporate lunches serving some huge local companies, however the heart of the business lies in the Monday – Friday sandwich and salad bar that also serves hot food and homemade cakes.

Products are locally sourced with daily baked goods from Hobbs house and fresh fruit and salad from Ian’s in Chipping Sodbury High Street.

In an innovative move the team have started to offer bespoke picnic baskets after spotting a gap in the market.

Lisanne said: “The pandemic has been difficult and now we are looking to think outside of the box.

“We are now offering picnic hampers in proper wick picnic baskets including crockery and cutlery table cloth and napkins.

“These can be tailormade for any occasion from a family trip to the park- a hen weekend package or maybe a children’s tea party.

Lianne said she was over the moon when she found out customers had nominated the Food hub as the Gazette Takeaway of the year.

“I think we have been nominated not only for the quality of our food, but for our staff and the service they offer.” She said.

“Its been hard for a whole year and we are lucky to still be here.

“To win would make the last year worthwhile- I feel like we are Yates best kept secret so it would be nice for people to finally know more about us.”
