“Good food and coffee ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

We went there for breakfast after we overslept our hotel breakfast. We got wraps with coffee. Some sweets all at reasonable prices. Reading all the adverts on the wall we had a feeling that we are eating really healthy and ecological food. Nice place.

“They're Great Pop-Ins!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Funny, how we make our own trails with out feet unerringly making their way at Coffee Times to the same places, through familiar doors!
When in doubt, and in a strange place and spotting one, I go to a Pret to think about my next moves!
They do good coffee and excellent food. I read on one of their walls that "every day the sandwich and salad chefs at Pret make, on average, 217 trays. This is, roughly, 6287 steps;3.6 miles-or 86 minutes in the Gym."
I like that kind of thinking!
And I like their helpfulness to those in need.
The food is good & wholesome.
I rather miss the little loyalty cards, though. I'd given a friend one (out of the generosity of MY heart) but when she presented it she found they'd stopped them just a few days previously.
You should have seen her little face crumble!!
Well recommended, wherever they are. And the staff are Real People with nice personalities.

“You can tell where all those trophies came from!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

The staff at Pret on Castle Street are a great bunch. Always friendly and fast. If you're a regular, they soon remember your order. Ah, nothing like it.

“Rotten coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

I had one of the worst cups of coffee here. A double shot flat white takeaway - undrinkable!
If you charging the same as a quality coffee shop you should be providing a quality coffee. Food is fine here, but just don't ruin your meal with a bad coffee. Sadly this is the second bad coffee experience, so wont be repeating my mistake.

“Consistent food from national chain; soups, salads & sandwiches”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

One of smaller Pret units but seating outside in good weather allows views of castle. Recently revamp has udated it and made more attractive seatin. Some hot fodd, but mainy soups (good) and sandwiches. Calorie count can be high in the salads. Competing cafes nearby probably better choice for coffee, but this has bigger range of food.
