Having been to Florida a number of times, I originally feel in love with the Earl of Sandwich at Downtown Disney…then to discover there was one in London in 2012 was fantastic. It's the place I always take a visit to for lunch when in London. Food is always fantastic and very tasty, service is always great and staff are... More

We have recently returned from the states, where we had Eof S for the first time and it was amazing, so when we stumbled upon this London branch (right near St.Pauls) , we though yep we'll give it ago. We were not dissapointed the hot sandwich is not as big as a Subway but they are 10 times more tasty,... More

The sandwich I got from Earl of Sandwich was one of the nicest I've had for a long time. It was delicious and the ingredients fresh. For the price I found the sandwich a little small and the service was a bit slow but I would still go back.

So glad I had this place reccomended to me. It was bloody fantastic. Great and quick service and friendly staff. My sandwich was made as the guy made my coffee. When I got it it was nice and hot, and you could tell all the ingredients were used fresh. If you are in the area, go and eat there.

Popped into the Earl of Sandwich for a quick lunch while taking a bus tour. The food was exactly what we needed - hearty and delicious. We also thought you got a good amount for your money. The staff was really nice - asking where we were from and telling us about the Earl of Sandwich company. Apparently, there's one... More

Stopped for a bite to eat here after loving the US version and craving the taste of a 'Full Montagu' sandwich. On a Sunday lunch time, it was very quiet and we were warmly welcomed by the staff. Reasonable prices for a hot sandwich and yummy chocolate brownie and they tasted amazing! This place is so much better than any... More

I had high expextations as the sign indicated the best hot sandwich in the world. In my opinion, it is better than Subway, but not quite a Quiznos. And certainly Firehouse Subs has them beat.

Only one step up from Subway. Not a particluarly nice atmosphere and the beef and horseradish special was with shredded beef rather than decent slices. Not gourmet by a long shot. However good cheap nosh.

Great selection of sandwiches. Plenty of people visit here so must be good! I got a voucher from one of the free London maps meant I got 10% off. Good location too - if you don't fancy sitting in St Pauls is just around the corner you can go sit on the step and look important.

this is definitely the best sandwich in London. If you are visiting St. Paul cathedral, don't miss the opportunity to eat. My favourite one is the Full Montagu. Staff is very friendly. If you speak portuguese, talk to Felix. He is a very kind person. Se você fala portugues, procure o Felix. Ele é muito gentil e atencioso. Visitar a... More
