Northern Sould opened a few weeks ago now, we’ve been once or twice maybe three times or could be more than four but who’s counting, the point is that the humble grilled cheese sandwich is no longer quite so humble.

There’s not much point me talking too indepth about the cuisine, it’s not really that type of set-up, in fact it’s pretty simple – have bread, have cheese, will grill. On our fifth or sixth visit and for purely journalistic reasons we ordered one of everything. The pictures below should tell you all you need to know, failing that just head over there and order one.

The set-up here may be simple and the concept even more so, but sometimes simple is best and if it’s comfort food you want then frankly lunch doesn’t get much better than this.

The team at Northern Soul are a great laugh, it’s all about living the dream and these guys are doing it one grilled cheese at a time.
