Marks & Spencer Bury St Edmunds23 Buttermarket, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, IP33 1DT
Quality is the name of the game here, and great effort goes into producing consistent products. Good salad leaves, pre-packed vegetables, fresh fruit and trimmed meat. They are now very much geared to offering pre-packaged traiteur dishes, which simply need re-heating or a few minutes of basic cooking. Their varieties span the world, those from the Far-East, while good, are designed to be inoffensive so tend to hold the middle-ground in the flavour stakes.
However, the British and European-style dishes are of a standard not easily achieved in the average British household; and this makes many of them ideal for entertaining (or, if you can afford to, for everyday eating). Their excellent party nibbles, mean that you can have a party or barbecue at a moments notice and the range has to be commended.
They still produce the best chicken Kievs available; but, be careful not to buy the cheaper reformed meat version.
Perhaps their next efforts should be put into incorporating more free-range/organic/local products into their existing range.
