Excellent

It's a very good cafe. They always seem to run out of pastries but the early afternoon, but that's my only complaint. The staff is very efficient, if you are waiting in line to order the guy making the sandwiches will ask what your eating so he can get a head start. The sandwiches are very good... read more

On our way to St Katharine Dock we passed Pumblechooks and stopped off for some lunch and a coffee. On the surface it looked like a normal deli, but the staff were very friendly and the choice and selection was larger than average. I chose a falafel and houmous hot wrap, with a general idea in mind of what I... More

Walking around in search of the bacon sandwich for breakfast and wasn't having much luck until we came across this establishment. What a great selection of food on offer and great coffee. Was empty when we arrived but full when we left. Top marks very clean and tidy and nice pleasant staff.

Had my first lunchtime visit to Pumblechooks today following a suggestion from colleagues. Must admit it was pretty disappointing. The chaotic system is very hard to understand if you're a first time customer, although I managed to order and pay for my toasted sandwich OK, even if the cashiers couldn't work the tills (they were both stuck). However I then... More

Dear ' Platform 27' It is very unfortunate that your first visit to Pumblechook’s was on a day when we had a new epos till system installed. Nothing seemed to work properly, and the chap who was supposed to come in and help us sort out the problems, which you always get on first day, hadn’t turn up. This put... More

I have eaten here a couple of times recently and the food is great. It is really nice to come into a sandwich bar and have so much choice - much of it home made. They do great hot meals too, so you really can find something you fancy - whether you are ravenous or just peckish. The prices are... More

Thank you for your kind review..it's great to be appreciated. We are currently looking at new epos technology to try and improve our ordering system. I suspect though that due to our ginormous menu, and the lunchtime demand from the local work force, which ever system we adopt it will always be a little chaotic at the busy times. More

Super stop for pre-London Marathon Offical Cheerers' bacon sarnies and hot chocolate. Thanks for getting up early, everyone!

After arriving in Wapping at 5.30am to set up our cheering post for #caudwellchildren for the London marathon and getting soaked through in the process my daughter and I needed to get warm, have a hot drink, good quality freshly cooked food and a friendly face. That's exactly what we got when we found this little gem. I personally recommend... More

On a course nearby and this place was recommended by the trainer. The food was very tasty, really quick and the place was buzzing. Chicken Milanese with salami in a hot fresh roll was wonderful. Full range of salads and hot and cold food all looked really good.
