My second soup kitchen review is of Northbourne House, situated at Forbes St Turner. With the sun shining and the weather at a balmy 21 degrees, I couldn”t think of a better thing to do than grab a snack.
Northbourne House has a slight rustic feel to it, positioned under several towering oaks that litter the north side; one is privy to a feeling of serenity and calm.
The distinct aroma of BBQ sausages greeted me as I approached. I was served immediately, and asked only for my name in return.
A side salad with water or cordial to drink was also available with the sausages. The salad was crisp and tangy, providing the perfect accompaniment to the char grilled snags.
After lunch I made my way inside where I found a piano, should anyone want to play it. The walls were adorned with various newspaper articles to provide some light reading while eating lunch.
Northbourne house is open Monday ” Friday, 12.30 ” 4pm
