We source perfectly edible food that would otherwise go to waste from supermarkets, wholesalers, and other food businesses, transform it into lovely meals, with a focus on health and nutrition, and serve them to anyone and everyone on a pay-as-you-feel basis.

Accessibility at the restaurant
Unfortunately, as this site is not a permanent venue for Real Junk Food Mcr, and because the building is grade 2 listed, we have not been able to make the restaurant fully accessible for people with a range of mobility issues. Our ground floor (open for lunch) is accessible, but the basement restaurant space (used for fine dining evenings) is not accessible. As soon as the weather warms up we will be using the ground floor in the evenings, but unfortunately do not have an accessible toilet on site. Apologies to any customers with mobility issues. As the project grows we will develop other sites, and a fully accessible site is our next goal.
