James Martin Kitchen is a premium bakery highlighting British farm ingredients and quality baking in a café setting.

For breakfast it offers a range of hot and cold sandwiches, fruit, yogurt pots and pastries. While, for lunch dishes include freshly made pies, wraps, sandwiches, baguettes and salads.

The bakery also serves a variety of homemade cakes and biscuits made to Martin's recipes.

Simon Smith, CEO of SSP UK, said: "James Martin Kitchen is a brand that passengers love and our clients want. It's already been a big hit at Stansted, and we are confident that it will be equally as well received at Manchester and Lakeside.

Sam Shutt, head of external business - food at Debenhams, added: "The opening of the James Martin Kitchen represents a significant step forward in our desire to provide an exciting, quality, affordable premium food offer, for both our valued and loyal customers of today, whilst reaching out to a new customer audience for the future. Debenhams is pleased to be offering the first James Martin Kitchen outside of the travel retail sector."
