We tried Cleo’s deli at Arnold’s AMP to see if it was ‘worth the hype’

The lunch spot attracts lots of regulars with many customers sharing their love for the deli on social media.


Six months ago Cleo’s delicatessen, owned by couple Theo Solomon and Chloe Cross, opened in the AMP and since then it has received many great reviews.

Salad boxes are their top sellers, with them offering a variety of fresh meats, veg, pastas and sauces.

The deli bars are all prepped daily and salads can be purchased in small, medium or large.

Even though they may be a favourite, the healthy lunches are not all they do.

Cleo’s also sells sandwiches, which can be made to order as well as sweet treats and an array of cupboard essentials to take home to recreate their delights yourself.

And you can also get your hands on fresh homemade meals including lasagne, curries and cottage pies.

Even though we visited after the lunch rush the store was still busy.

The regular salad was very filling and you definitely get what you pay for, with the box being filled to the top and only £5.95.

As a slightly fussy eater when it comes to vegetables there was still a great variety of options to choose from and the customisation means you can walk away with exactly what you want.

The pesto pasta in the salad was a personal favourite of mine.

Co-owner Theo Soloman said: “Opening was a risk, but it seems to be paying off at the moment.”

The lunch spot seems to attract lots of regulars with many customers sharing their love for the deli on social media.

One said: “We have been reading about the new deli at AMP so decided to give it a try today.

“Wow, the salads are amazing.

Another commented: “Cleo’s delicatessen at AMP did it again.

“We had meal deals from Cleo’s a few times but this was the first time with desert, omg it’s lush.

“If you haven’t tried it yet you are missing out.”

The shop is in Unit 5, The AMP, 9 market place, Arnold, Nottingham NG5 6ND.

They work closely with Taste First next door and provide tapas boards for their wine tastings.

It is open Tuesday to Friday 9 to 5pm and Saturday 9 to 4pm.

You can find their social media here.
