My favourite chain

I am not a great fan of chains but always find Pret A Manger provide good value. Service is always quick and efficient, the food fresh and delicious and there is plenty of choice. I am sure there must be some that fall below par but I have used them all over the UK and have yet to have a... read more

Checked my sandwich and found what might have been a pubic hair and returned to the store for a refund which I got. No complimentary drink though and I felt really disgusting and I wanted one. The manager didn't really apologise and actually I felt a bit embarrassed. It looked like it had been deliberately placed... which worried me.

Always great efficient service with good quality food made from fresh ingredients. Try the posh cheddar and pickle baguette, one of my favourites...

I commute into London on a regular basis. With my office being just above Pret, I am a regular visitor for both breakfast and lunch! I love the breakfast smoothies and the variety of soups. Quick service, good choice and tasty food, just what's needed! Staff are also very friendly! Quite often chains can be average, not this one!

I've been getting sandwiches from Pret a Manger since 1988 and they use excellent fresh ingredients, make the sandwiches/salads on the premises. I love the Italian Chicken Salad and the lemon poppy seed cake. This branch has lots of good tables, wifi and lots of light streaming in, and its about 5 minutes from St Paul's and the Millenium Bridge.... More

I always got Cheese and Tomato and a cup of Americano every morning. It's like a mood booster everytime I bite the pastry. It melted in my mouth.

I am a big fan of pret, the food is really good and the coffee is great. Staff are always spot on and now that the branches seem to be expanding the extra seating is very convenient.

We came to this restaurant around 8 am after we got off of our plane at Heathrow Airport. We were literally cold and hungry as we had just gotten off of an 8 hour flight and it started to rain. This was the only place that looked open. We waved to the workers and they were nice enough to open... More

Ideal for a quick bite! I often visit the one near Trafalgar Square. The food is surprisingly good quality, reasonable value and the service is also generally good. Everything looks very clean. My only complaint is that some of the staff don't seem to understand much English.

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
