“Always good value”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Short queue for lunchtime sandwiches and a coffee, friendly, efficient staff, space to sit down and good quality food. I often come here when in Birmingham and know that I will get good service and, although it is not cheap, the food is of good quality and they offer fair value for money.

“It's a Prets - they are all pretty much the same”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Prets are Prets. What they do, they do well. A good range of fresh, interesting sandwiches, baguettes and wraps plus some tasty soups. They boast of not using any additives and I believe they donate surplus food to the homeless rather than binning it.

“Well Served Coffee With a View”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

I do rather like Pret coffee and have a particular soft spot for their ham & egg bloomer and if I can get a window seat on the first floor, it's a good a place as any to watch the world go by for a while. Also, the staff are great: I recently had a "spilt coffee everywhere" moment and they cleared up quickly and efficiently and gave me a free replacement without batting an eyelid. Quite frankly, it is friendly five-star service.

“Fast work”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Fast friendly service from staff everytime I go there with a relaxing atmosphere. Have not eaten there yet. Great coffee though and not a bad price either.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

The food is fresh and cleanly prepared. The staff are helpfull and courteous. The price is slightly higher than similar establishments in the local area and considerably higher that the local supermarkets. But it is worth paying that little bit extra for the food and service.
